Panaji: Local unit of India Against
Corruption (IAC) has demanded that Lokayukta Bill be tabled
immediately before the State Legislative Assembly.
"IAC has noted that government appears to have distanced
itself from the people of Goa by indulging in delaying
tactics, and feels that any further delay in bringing the
Lokayukta bill will irreversibly erode the credibility of the
Government," it said in a statement here today.
A two-day session of the Assembly is scheduled for
October 5 and 7.
Earlier, Goa Chief Minister Digambar Kamat had assured --
when IAC activists had met him in Panaji at the time of Anna
Hazare`s fast in New Delhi -- that the bill will be tabled
during the coming Assembly session.
Goa Lokayukta Bill had been passed by the Assembly in
2007, but it was referred back by the Centre, when sent for
President`s Assent, over certain legal issues.
