Uttarakhand Lokayukta is a model law: Jaitely

BJP said the Lokaykta Act in Uttarakhand will act as a model law for all states and the Centre to enact similar measures.

Dehra Dun: BJP on Thursday said the Lokaykta Act in
Uttarakhand will act as a model law for all states and the
Centre to enact similar measures.

"I Congratulate the Uttarakhand government for enacting
this Lokayukta. I feel that this Lokayukta will be a model law
in India", Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun
Jaitely told reporters after a function.

Commending the Lokayukta bill passed by Uttarakhand
assembly, Jaitely expressed the hope that the Centre would
also follow suit by enacting a strong Lokpal Bill.

Referring to Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s
forthcoming visit to Gauchar in Chamoli district for
Karanprayag-Rishikesh rail project, Jaitely said the
foundation stone ceremony should not be allowed to become a
party function.

"It would have been better had the Prime Minister been
invited for this function", Jaitely said.
