Notified on January 16, 2014, the Lokpal and Lokayuktas Act, 2013, has been hanging fire as the Narendra Modi government refused to constitute it on the ground that there was no leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha. He quit the post in June past year.

The selection committee has been meeting on the question of induction of an eminent jurist after the demise of senior advocate P.P. Rao. The 2013 statute includes the Leader of the Opposition as a member of the selection committee. The bench posted the matter for further hearing on July 2.

The bench, hearing a contempt petition filed by Common Cause through advocate Prashant Bhushan for not implementing the April 2017 verdict of the apex court in appointing Lokpal, asked the A-G to expedite the process of appo-intment of Lokpal. Mr. Rohatgi had steered the government side through many court battles, including the NJAC and the early days of Aadhaar challenge in the apex court.
