Include a Dalit on Lokpal panel: Mayawati

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Friday demanded the inclusion of a Scheduled Caste member on the Lokpal Bill drafting committee.  The chief minister flayed both the Congress-led UPA government as well as the civil society for not caring to include a single Dalit on the joint committee constituted by the union government after a fast-unto-death by leading activist Anna Hazare earlier this month.

 Without taking any names, the chief minister also made it clear that the committee must distance itself from such members whose integrity was being questioned.
