Mumbai, Dec 15: Reacting to Team Anna's proposed Jan Lokpal Bill, Shiv Sena on Thursday (today) said that the bill could create a "Gaddafi" in the country.

Shiv Sena Chief Bal Thackeray said, "There is no need to create an impression among people that the Jan Lokpal bill will lead to 'Ram Rajya' in the country. There is a need to strengthen the existing anti-graft laws to end corruption in India."

Shiv Sena Executive President Uddhav Thackeray said that though his party has been supporting Anna Hazare's anti-corruption movement, it was strongly opposed with the proposed Jan Lokpal bill by Team Anna.

Uddhav Thackeray has also written in Thursday's (Dec 15) edition of Saamna, the party mouthpiece, "It is being intensely debated over who and which offices will come under the jurisdiction of the Lokpal. But nobody is discussing who will have jurisdiction over the Lokpal. Lokpal could deal a serious blow to democracy."

"It is being intensely debated over who and which offices will come under the jurisdiction of the Lokpal. But nobody is discussing who will have jurisdiction over the Lokpal. Lokpal could deal a serious blow to democracy," Uddhav wrote.

He further added that the Parliament was supreme in the country and in any circumstances, it should not be compromised. He further said that no institution can be above the Constitution of the country.
