New Delhi: The Delhi government on Monday tabled the anti-corruption legislation, the Delhi Jan Lokpal Bill, in the assembly.
Tabling it, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said it was a “historic” bill and no such bill was as effective as this one.
There was thumping of desks by members of the ruling Aam Aadmi Party who also raised slogans in its support. The Bharatiya Janata Party members in the assembly were not present.
According to the bill, a person involved in corruption will face life imprisonment and the fine imposed will be five times the loss caused to the public exchequer.
