Cong leader Kharge declines govt’s offer to attend Lokpal meeting

In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Kharge has said that a special invitee invitation is a concerted effort to exclude the voice of the opposition in Lokpal selection

New Delhi: Leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha has written to the prime minister, declining the government’s offer to attend the meeting of the Selection Committee for Lokpal appointment as a special invitee.

The government had invited him to today’s of the Selection Committee as a special invitee.

In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Kharge has said that a special invitee invitation is a concerted effort to exclude the voice of the opposition in Lokpal selection.

As per the Lokpal Act, only the Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha is a member of the Selection Committee and since Kharge is not the Leader of Opposition, he is not a part of the committee.

A special invitee invitation is a concerted effort to exclude the independent voice of the opposition altogether from the selection process of the most important anti-corruption watchdog, Kharge said in his letter to Modi.

“My mere presence as special invitee without rights of participation, recording of my opinion and voting would be a mere eyewash ostensibly aimed at showcasing the participation of the opposition in the selection process.

In these circumstances I must decline the invite as a special invitee to uphold the inviolability of the as the current proceedings have reduced a sacred procedure to a political presence, he said in the letter.
