New Delhi: Sticking to it stand, BSP today
said group C and D employees should be under the ambit of the
Lokpal Bill.

"There is no change in our stand on Lokpal Bill. The
class C and D were taken out from the Bill and put in the
CVC. We are not agreeing to it. It should be within the Lokpal
ambit," BSP leader Satish Chandra Mishra told reporters
outside Parliament House here.

BSP is also opposed to Bill`s provisions on CBI and
Lokayukta. "CBI was not made independent in the proposed Bill.
It is still under government," he said.

On amendments, he said, "There are so many amendments
already being moved... we will see. But we have made our stand
very clear on these vital issues."
