AAP hits out at Cong over justice Thomas resignation

The Aam Aadmi Party hit out at the Congress over the resignation of head of the Lokpal Committee Search Panel Justice KT Thomas from the panel. AAP said in a statement on Monday that the resignation of Justice (retired) Thomas as the head of the Lokpal search panel barely a few days after eminent jurist Fali S Nariman had also decided to opt out of the same panel, completely exposes the UPA government’s unjustified attempts to complete the appointment process in a hurry before it completes its tenure.

The entire issue proves beyond doubt that the UPA government is trying to appoint individuals convenient to it in a desperate bid to render the Lokpal as a weak and ineffective institution. It also shows that other main parties, including the BJP, did nothing to ensure adequate checks and balances to prevent the government from weakening the fight against corruption,’ said a statement issued by the AAP on Monday.
