Bathinda, 11 December 2011 (bharatSandesh News):–  The Punjab Chief Minister Mr Parkash Singh Badal today strongly emphasized that the Congress led UPA government must draft the Lok Pal Bill in the same manner as advocated by social activist Mr Anna Hazaare, so that rampant corruption in the country could be nailed efficiently.

            Talking to the media persons after presiding over a function organized by the Dhanak Samaj here today, the Chief Minister reiterated the commitment of the SAD-BJP alliance for enacting a strong Lok Pall Bill so that countrymen could get a reprieve from widespread corruption in the society. Advocating the enactment of a strong and powerful Lok Pal Bill as desired by Mr Anna Hazaare, he said that the bill that is to be passed by the Union government must be in accordance to the guidelines backed by the veteran Gandhian so that the basic purpose of passing the bill is fulfilled. The Chief Minister said that it must be flawless and strong so that on one hand it could play an effective role in weeding out the corruption and the other hand it could play a pivotal role in punishing the erring public servants involved in such practices. “Only the Lok Pal Bill advocated by Anna Hazaare could well serve the purpose effectively checking the corruption in the society” he added.

Mr Badal said that due to the Union government’s policy of gross discrimination and apathy towards poor and downtrodden sections of people this important part of our society is on the brink of economic disaster.
