lov verma, harsh vardhan, jp nadda…

Has the Union health ministry misled Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the AIIMS CVO matter? On August 23, health secretary Lov Verma sent a detailed note to the PMO on why Sanjiv Chaturvedi, an Indian Forest Service officer who had uncovered several scams while posted in Haryana, had been removed from the post of Chief Vigilance Officer (CVO) at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi. The note, which followed Modi’s phone conversation with health minister Harsh Vardhan on the matter, adds fuel to the controversy surrounding Chaturvedi’s abrupt removal because it contains apparent contradictions in the ministry’s own position and is silent about a BJP Member of Parliament who had sought his dismissal.

india’s subservient bureaucrats, so eager to ingratiate themselves to power.
