‘AAP determined to pass Jan Lokpal Bill in 15 days’

aapAgencies, New Delhi
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Delhi Chief Minister designate Arvind Kejriwal today said corruption was a big issue for his Party and his government, to be sworn-in on December 28, was determined  to introduce and pass a Jan Lokpal Bill within 15 days.

Asked whether it would be difficult for him to pass a  Jan Lokpal Bill within the next 15 days, he told reporters  that the Delhi State Assembly had the right to pass all  laws except those which may come in conflict with Central  laws.
He said Transaction of Business Rules was amended in 2002  to ensure that all state governments would have to take the Centre’s permission to pass any law which was wrong.

During British rule, all administrative decisions had to be sent to London for approval, he said.     ‘’We are now an independent country and do not have  to follow this,’’ he added.

He said there were hurdles in the process but expressed determination that AAP would tackle all issues and pass  the bill.

He, however, admitted that the AAP did not have  answers to all the issues but said that the AAP would  work with the people.  ‘’…Common man has all the answers…,’’ he said.
