Guna (MP), Jun 12: Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh has favoured bringing the Prime Minister and the higher judiciary under the ambit of Lokpal.

"My view is that the Prime Minister, Judiciary, NGOs and industrial houses should also be brought under the ambit of Lokpal. But there should be a system to ensure that the Lokpal does not misuse its power," Singh told reporters at his hometown Raghogarh last evening.

"When I was the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, I had brought the CM's post under the purview of Lokayukta (Ombudsman)," he said.

However, in an apparent reference to civi rights activists like Anna Hazare, Singh said "exerting of pressure" on government by a few people was not right in a democratic system.
