Selecting Lokayukta: Panel to meet on Monday

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Wednesday said he had convened the meeting of a committee set up for holding consultation on the appointment of Karnataka Lokayukta on January 25.

He said a recent meeting held by the consultative committee had remained inconclusive. Though the names of the retired judge of the Supreme Court Justice Vikramajit Sen and former chairman of the State Human Rights Commission Justice S R Nayak were shortlisted, there was no consensus among the members on who should become the new Lokayukta. Hence, the committee will meet again, he said.

Besides the chief minister, Chief Justice of the  High Court, presiding officers of both the Houses of Legislature and leaders of the Opposition in both Houses are members of the committee.
