Regarding the Jan Lokpal Bill, Azharuddin said that the Prime Minister too should be included under the ambit of Lokpal alongwith all citizens of the society. He further expressed that the proposed bill should be discussed in the parliament in its depth and put across for debate in the civil society for larger participation.
