Uttarakhand Governor gives assent to Lokayukta
The bill was passed by the state assembly unanimously on Tuesday night following a marathon discussion. The Bill was signed by the Governor in the presence of Chief Minister B C Khanduri who was present when the assent was given, a Raj Bhavan spokeswoman said.
Alva also asked Khanduri to implement the Act in the same spirit in which it was brought in the state. "I am happy that such a wonderful bill was passed in Uttarakhand. I am very happy that Uttarakhand has become the first state to bring such a strong law to fight corruption", Alva told Khanduri. Team Anna has welcomed the Bill saying it is "in toto" with its Jan Lokpal Bill.
