Patna: Bihar Deputy Chief Minister SK Modi
on Tuesday said that Prime Minister should be brought under the
purview of Lokpal but only under some conditions.

"I personally believe that PM should be brought within
the purview of the Lokpal under specific conditions. Former
Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee too has supported it
earlier," Modi told reporters.

He, however, added that his party had sought the draft
for the Lokpal bill. "It will give its views on the
issue after that."

"It should also be kept in mind that the proposed
legislation is not misused while bringing PM under its ambit,"
he said.

"It is the demand of common people to bring PM within the
ambit of Lokpal," Modi claimed.
