Editors Guild wants media out of Lokpal's purview

Friday October 21, 2011 10:45:04 PM, IANS

New Delhi: The Editors Guild of India wants the media to be kept out of the Lokpal's ambit as it is a private entity, sources said Friday.

They said Guild representatives Friday conveyed this to the parliamentary standing committee on law and justice that is examining three versions of the proposed anti-graft ombudsman.

Several MPs, including those in the committee, have been demanding that the media and NGOs be brought under the ambit of the ombudsman.

Standing committee chairman Abhishek Singhvi is understood to have said that the Guild members had stated their views "clearly and provocatively".

Besides the Editors Guild, as many as 21 other organisations and individuals were invited to share their views on the Lokpal issue with the panel.
