Mumbai: A local organisation on Thursday took out
a morcha against the proposed Jan Lokpal Bill, arguing that
the very concept was against the Constitution.
"The Bill is against the Constitution. One person like
Anna Hazare or few NGOs cannot run the country. It is
misleading the people over corruption and we must protest it,"
said activist Arvind Vaidya, while addressing the protesters.



The protest-march, organised by `Sanvidhan Bachao
Samitee`, started from August Kranti Maidan and ended at
Chaitya Bhumi at Dadar.
"The Lokpal (as per Jan Lokpal Bill) would be the
ultimate authority to investigate, prosecute and punish a
corrupt person. It challenges the basic idea of democracy and
it has to be opposed," said Raju Kuthavad, a member of the
Samitee.
