- Justice (Retd) Santosh Hegde criticised state government over the draft Karnataka Lokayukta Bill 2014, which gives power of prosecution and investigation to State Vigilance Commission.
- The draft bill takes away grievance redressal from Lokayukta and also mentions 50 % of the members should be non-judicial members which may become a post retirement arena of bureaucrats and may not function well to deliver justice.
- He said the bill requires wider consolations from public as well as experts.
