Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki has cleared the implementation of the Lokayukta Bill which the state Assembly had passed in March.

"This is a gift to the people of Arunachal Pradesh from a responsive government," sources quoted Tuki as having said after he signed the Bill yesterday on his first day in office following Congress`s re-election in the state.
Passage of the Lokayukta Act was a commitment made in Congress`s election manifesto this year, official sources pointed out today.
Lokayukta is a quasi-judicial body which would act as a watchdog to pinpoint wrongdoings of the administration, look into complaints of victims of corruption and suggest measures to improve the efficiency of the government.
