Lokpal not a panacea..........

Dr. Singh insisted that while the Lokpal was essential and desirable, it was not a “panacea.” Asked about the debate on whether or not the Prime Minister should be under the purview of the Lokpal, he said: “I, for one, have no hesitation in bringing myself under the purview of the Lokpal,” but added that many of his Cabinet colleagues felt that such a move would create “an element of instability which can go out of hand.”
Ruling out the inclusion of the higher judiciary in the ambit of the Lokpal, Dr. Singh told the editors that his government would work for a national consensus.
