What happened to it?
BJP tried to get a strong Lokpal for the country
The case of Gujarat Lokayukta
It is also pertinent to note that the Supreme Court actually rapped the governor for such unilateral action and interference and the only reason it upheld the appointment of Lokayukta was by considering the opinion of the Chief Justice of High Court as important and overriding.
However the need for such opinion arose predominantly also because the opposition as well as the Governor allegedly put all sort of hurdles in the way of appointment of the Lokayukta. Before forming a opinion it is worthwhile to also read a letter by Sh. Modi to the Prime Minister in this matter giving his view of the matter.
Some questions for those who question the alleged delay in appointment of Gujarat Lokayukta
e) If judges recuse themselves of their own accord at times, if they even have the smallest incidental interest or possibility of partisan view in a matter, shouldn't this norm also apply to the Lokayukta appointment?
And last but not the least: Lokpal and Lokayukta bill and appointment are very important factors in ensuring that corruption reduces. But corruption itself is Just ONE factor howsoever important the average Indian citizen will take in account when voting for his Prime Minister. Please do not take them to be fools. The intellectuals who have great causes whether developmental economics or anti corruption movement should also kindly consider this.
I rest my case.
