BANGALORE: Karnataka Lokayukta
Santosh Hegde on Sunday flayed
the government's stand to keep
the Prime Minister out of the
purview of Lokpal till he demits
office, pointing to the possibilities of evidences being destroyed and
also wriggling out by citing "error
of judgement" in such cases. "That (keeping PM out of Lokpal)
will not serve the purpose of
having an effective investigation
because there will not be any trails
of the misconduct," Hegde, a member of the Lokpal drafting committee, said in
an interview. If Lokpal were to conduct investigation after prime
minister demitted office, there are possibilities of
evidences being "swept clean" before that and
there could be arguments that it was "error of
judgement" (on the part of PM) and it is not a case
of corruption, he said.
