Abstract

Corruption today is the all pervasive evil that is reflecting upon the social, political and economical aspects and has been eating the vitals of the society. To prevent and eradicate the corruption in the society, the Lokpal Bill was envisaged and introduced in the 4th Lok Sabha for the first time in the year 1969 and it was an abortive attempt. Ever since, many a successive governments have only paid lip service towards eradicating the scourge of corruption and the Lokpal has remained merely as a bill even to this day. The surfacing of scams involving the Central Government, which have caused huge loss to the Governmental exchequer, has come as bolt in the blue to the civilised masses. Perhaps, the recent scams that have surfaced are the biggest ever in the history of corruption, according to the Central Vigilance Commission's estimate. All these seems to have prompted the prominent personalities, such as Anna Hazare, Baba Ram Dev and others, to lead the disillusioned masses in the fight against the corruption and this is how the issue of Lokpal has came to the fore in the recent times. However, the bone of contention between the civil society that is calling for a passing of a strong Lokpal bill and the Government is relating to whether the Prime Minister and the higher judiciary could be brought under the ambit of the proposed Lokpal? This article sheds light on this vital aspect.
