A gainst the backdrop of the writ petition filed in the Supreme Court by the state government, seeking cessation of powers and functions of Nagaland Lokayukta, justice Uma Nath Singh, the coordinating officer of the Lokayukta has said that the Lokayukta will submit its reply to the Supreme Court with evidence.

When contacted, the officer claimed that the facts were distorted and therefore Lokayukta will respond to Supreme Court with enough evidence.

It may be mentioned that the state government had approached the Supreme Court to arbitrate the actions of State Lokayukta, who it claimed to have made several “arbitrary demands”.

In this regard, a three-Judge Bench of Chief Justice of India SA Bobde and Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian sought a response from the Lokayukta within two weeks time.
