Will not take immediate decision on Lokpal: Centre to Supreme Court
The Central Government has communicated to the Supreme Court that it will not take any immediate decision on the appointment of chairperson and members of the Lokpal. Thus, the Central Government has nearly signalled that a decision in this regard might be left to the new government which is formed after the 2014 general elections.
Solicitor General Mohan Parasaran appearing before a bench headed by Justice R M Lodha, held that the Government is currently not planning to take any conclusion on the appointment of Lokpal. After this, the Supreme Court bench held that there was no need for any interim order on PIL filed by NGO Common Cause, challenging the selection procedure for the Lokpal.
