New Delhi: Dalit leader Udit Raj on Wednesday welcomed the Union Cabinet's decision to include reservation for SC, ST, OBC and other weaker section in the ambit of the proposed Lokpal.

Raj, Chairman of All India Confederation of SC/ST Organisations, also took a dig at Team Anna and said they should understand their "weaknesses."

"They might have organised big shows at Ramlila ground and Jantar Mantar but the majority of silent section of people is not necessarily with them," he said in a release.

There is no doubt that Anna Hazare has aroused the consciousness of the country on corruption but they should wait and watch what Parliament is going to do, he said.

"After all, Parliament is the will of about 120 crore people and thus they (Team Anna) should have faith in democracy," he said.

While welcoming the Government draft of Lokpal Bill which was approved by Cabinet yesterday, he suggested that Lokpal selection panel should not have more than two judges and that members from other fields like journalism and education also be made part of the panel.
