Santosh Hegde today said he was not willing to be Goa

Talking to reporters after attending a private function
near here, Hegde replied in negative when asked whether he
would like to take up the job.
"No," he said, without elaborating.

Goa Lokayukta Bill, 2011, prepared by the Goa Law Commission.
The bill is likely to be tabled before the Legislative
Assembly on October 5, when the winter session would begin.
Interacting with the civil society groups in Goa
yesterday, Hegde said that voters should support only those
candidates who promise to support the Lokayukta Bill in the
Hegde, a former Supreme Court judge, had also said that
Goa government should notify Goa Lokayukta Bill, 2003, rather
than working on a new bill, which would delay the appointment
of Lokayukta in the state by another two years.
