Patna, Dec 13: BJP is in favour of bringing Prime Minister under the ambit of Lokpal since the top leader gets no immunity under any existing law of the country, senior party leader S K Modi said today.


“BJP demands that Prime Minister be brought under the ambit of Lokpal because Indian Penal Code, Criminal Procedure Code and Prevention of Corruption Act do not not give any immunity to PM,” Modi, also deputy chief minister of Bihar, told reporters here.

“When there is no immunity for Prime Minister in substantive law, then there should not be any immunity for PM under procedural law,” he said.

Calling for “independence” of CBI, he said its director should be appointed by a collegium comprising Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha and Lokpal chairman.

Besides, investigation and prosecution wings of the CBI should be separated, he said.

Modi urged the Centre to pass the Lokpal bill with the provisions of Lokayukta in states in conformity with the Bihar Lokayukta bill 2011 passed by the state legislature recently.
