Aamir Khan supports Anna Hazare on Lokpal Bill

Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan today threw his weight behind Anna Hazare's campaign for a strong Lokpal saying the ombdusman should not be under government's control but accountable to the people of the country. Though he supported the view of bringing the prime minister, judiciary and MPs under Lokpal's purview, the actor differed with both Team Anna’s and the government’s views on the selection of Lokpal. He said no politician should be in the panel and suggested that it should have four judges and four independent constitutional authorities.
He said no politician should be in the panel and suggested that it should have four judges and four independent constitutional authorities. In Team Anna's bill, the selection committee would consist of two politicians along with four judges and two independent constitutional authorities. He said Lokpal should have power to grant permission to register an FIR against a judge and the ombudsman should be able to investigate allegations against the members of Parliament. Aamir also said that the same bill should provide for Lokpal at the Centre and Lokayukta at the sate level. He said the anti-corruption division of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) should be merged with the Lokpal.
