India green-lights historic anti-corruption legislation

NEW DELHI--India's parliament Wednesday passed legislation to create a powerful anti-graft watchdog following a mass anti-corruption movement that swept the country in 2011.

The ruling Congress and the main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) joined forces in the lower house in a rare display of unity to create a corruption ombudsman in the lower decision-making house of parliament.

BJP house leader Sushma Swaraj praised “the people of this country” for achieving the passage of the bill. Passage of the bill comes as general elections are due in May.
