`PM, judiciary should be in Lokpal ambit`

Digvijay Singh said "exerting of pressure" on govt by a few people was not right in a democratic system.



Guna (MP): Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh has favoured bringing the Prime Minister and
the higher judiciary under the ambit of Lokpal.

"My view is that the Prime Minister, Judiciary, NGOs and
industrial houses should also be brought under the ambit of
Lokpal. But there should be a system to ensure that the Lokpal
does not misuse its power," Singh told reporters at his
hometown Raghogarh last evening.
"When I was the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, I had
brought the CM`s post under the purview of Lokayukta
(Ombudsman)," he said.
However, in an apparent reference to civi rights
activists like Anna Hazare, Singh said "exerting of pressure"
on government by a few people was not right in a democratic
system.
