NEW DELHI - Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee that went into Lokpal, Abhishek Singhvi, today hit back at Team Anna for its comments that dissent outweighed consensus in the panel's report and said those who speak about democracy should learn principles of democratic discourse.


Singhvi said the Committee has given its report on 25 issues with overwhelming majority and on few issues there is dissent, asserting that "if parliament wants to legislate on the Anna model, it can obviously decide so."


"Let Arvind Kejriwal not try to fool the nation by suggesting that dissent outweighed consensus," Singhvi, also Congress spokesman, said.


He said the Parliamentary Committee decided on the basis that one Lokpal covering each and every employee with all powers over both corruption and citizens grievance redressal in exercising preliminary inquiry, investigation, prosecution and departmental powers would create excessive fusion of all powers in an institution making it not only an unmanageabe mammoth behemoth but also intrinsically susceptible to exercise of arbitrary and absolute powers.
