This is not the first time when a complaint against Steel Minister Beni Prasad Verma has reached the prime minister. The recent one is about NMDC (National Mineral Development Corporation), which comes under the steel ministry. The PSB, that is Public Enterprising Selection Board has selected an honest officer M S Rana for the CMD’s post, but under pressure from the mining lobby, the minister is advocating the appointment of NMDC’s director, technical, N K Nanda for the post. It is the same Nanda who was once in-charge of the mining in Bellary, and nothing about what happened there is hidden. The PMO itself seems to be in favour of Rana, because of the radical steps Rana has taken as the mint’s in-charge. The PMO wants him to repeat the success at NMDC, but the minister himself doesn’t see eye-to-eye with the PM on this.
