Ahmedabad: Team Anna core committee members
on Monday said that they would form `Charcha Samuhs` in Gujarat
for creating public awareness on the need to have a strong
Lokayukta in the state, on the lines of Uttarakhand.

The members held meetings in Rajkot, Vadodara and
Ahmedabad, and decided to form representative teams at the
state, district and taluka levels, for which a search
committee is being finalised.

"It has been decided to create state and regional level
youth camps in Gujarat. A committee has also been set up to
understand the best practises of economic decentralisation
in the state," Gandhi told reporters.

"Once created, a state-level team will work for agitating
for strong, independent and powerful Lokayukta in Gujarat on
the lines of Uttarakhand," he said.

Appointment of Lokayukta was pending in Gujarat for the
last nine years. Gujarat government has challenged the recent
appointment of Lokayukta in the Supreme Court.
