Bettiah, Nov 11: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar cleared that he “did not need a certificate from anyone" on his anti-corruption operation following team Anna's criticism over the new Bihar Lokayukta Bill.

On the second day of Nitish's Sewa Yatra, he said, “Some people have a habit of passing remarks. They should be cautious in their choice of words. In any case, we do not need a certificate from anyone on our serious intent to weed out corruption."

Expressing his anger over team Anna's opposition to his new Lokayukta bill, he said, “I had not made any commitment to anyone for anything. I am only committed to the people of Bihar." He cleared that his government did not engage Justice Santosh Hedge, former Karnataka Lokayukta and senior lawyer Shanti Bhushan in drafting the Bill.

Meanwhile, Arvind Kejriwal had drafted a rough sketch of the Bihar's new Lokyakuta bill two months back. On Wednesday, he tweeted that there was “nothing new" in the bill.

The state government is planning to bring the new Lokayukta bill in the winter session of the assembly. It is understood that the CM's office will also come under the ambit of the Lokayukta.
