delhi Updated: Dec 23, 2011 02:12 IST

Reservation: Provided that not less than fifty percent of the members of Lokpal shall be from among the persons belonging to scheduled caste, scheduled tribe, other backward classes, women and minorities.

Opposed: BJP and Shiv Sena saying including minorities was against the basic spirit of the Constitution which does not allow reservation on religious lines.

Supported: Congress, SP, RJD, BSP, DMK, Left parties and Trinamool Congress saying it was within the Constitutional framework and everyone should be included in fight against corruption

Lokayukta: One law to set up Lokpal at central level and lokayuktas in the states.

Opposed: BJP, AIADMK, DMK, TDP, Biju Janata Dal saying it will disturb the federal structure and trample the right of the states to frame laws. Having Lokayukta in a Central law will mean existing Lokayukta laws will have to be scrapped.

Supported: Congress said the issue can be taken up when the bill is taken up for discussion next week.

Prime Minister: Lokpal to investigate Prime Minister with restrictions.

Opposed: RJD, SP, AIADMK and Shiv Sena opposed to PM coming under Lokpal purview saying the PM is not a leader of a party but entire country.

Supported: CPIM and BJP saying the fight against corruption has to cover all top levels of governance including PM.
