Lokpal bill joint drafting panel
Lucknow, April 19: Demanded inclusion of two members of dalit and adivasi communities in Jan Lokpal Bill drafting committee, the Republican Party of India today (April 19) said a letter have been sent to the Prime Minister in this regard.

"I want two representatives of dalit and adivasi communities in the Jan Lokpal Bill drafting committee and have written in this regard to PM Manmohan Singh and the committee president Pranab Mukherjee," RPI chief Ramdas Athawale told reporters here.

Taking pot-shots at Baba Ramdev, Athawale said anti- corruption crusader Anna Hazare should not take support of the yoga guru as "he has amassed huge amount of black money".

"Hazare should not take support of Ramdev and film actors as they have amassed huge amount of black money," he said.

On RPI's electoral prospects in Uttar Pradesh, Athawale said the party's organisation base was in place in all the districts and it would contest all 403 seats in the state polls, due next year.

"We will go it alone, as of now," he said.
