New Delhi: Terming Anna Hazare`s fast as a
symbol of mobocracy, LJP president Ramvilas Paswan on Tuesday
described the Jan Lokpal Bill proposed by the civil society
activist as unconstitutional.
"What Anna Hazare did was unconstitutional and against
the spirit of democracy. What if others start following his
ways to get their demand fulfilled? No one should take the
government to ransom by such means," Paswan said here.

Addressing a press conference in support of the Bahujan
Lokpal Bill proposed by Chairman of All India Confederation of
SC and ST Organisation Udit Raj, Paswan demanded reservation
for people from Scheduled Castes and women in the selection
committee for appointing the Lokpal.
"People from backward community should get reservation in
selection committee to appoint the Lokpal. We would be
carrying out a rally here on November 30 to gather support for
our demands," he said.
