Delhi needs Lokayukta through collaborative approach: Kiran Bedi

New Delhi, Feb 12: Defending the Lokpal Act passed by the Parliament, former IPS officer Kiran Bedi on Wednesday said Delhi only needs an amended Lokayukta which was possible only with a "collaborative approach".

"Country already has a useful Lokpal Act! Delhi only needs an amended Lokayukta! Which is possible if the approach is collaborative!" Bedi, a member of Team Anna, tweeted.

Bedi, who had even observed fast along with Gandhian activist Anna Hazare for the Lokpal Act, has been critical of the Jan Lokpal Bill, which the Delhi government wants to pass in the assembly.

Two days back, she had said that the Jan Lokpal Bill should have been circulated to all concerned stake holders.

"No one knows contents of proposed Lokayukta! Why no prior consultations/consensus building before finalising it? Why not on the website too?" Bedi had tweeted.
