Paswan threatens to resign from Lokpal committee
Patna: LJP supremo Ramvilas Paswan Friday
threatened to resign from the Standing Committee on Lokpal in the parliament if Centre failed to ensure representation of SC, ST, women and minorities to the proposed Lokpal.
"I will resign from the Standing Committee considering
the proposal for Lokpal if my demand for giving representation of SC, ST, Women and minorities is not met," Paswan told reporters.
He said he had already made his intention clear during
the meeting of the committee.
Taking a dig at Anna Hazare's reaction to slapping of Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar, Paswan said, "Anna's statement is not in good taste."
