Modi’s message to Sangh

June 07 2015

A new set of controversies have emerged with the appointment of K V Choudhary as the chief vigilance officer. Choudhary has been a high-profile office and his file is with the president for approval. Choudhary has shouldered several high-profile cases in the past, which includes investigating cases like that of Moin Qureishi to the Radia Tapes. As chairman of CBDT, Choudhary has been under the cloud of controversy because of meeting with the then CBI Director Ranjit Sinha. People such as Ram Jethmalani and Prashant Bhushan have expressed their strong disapproval at Choudhary being appointed as the CVC. It is worth mentioning here that it was during Choudhary’s tenure with CBDT that the matter of Nitin Gadkari’s fake companies had come to light; knowingly or unknowingly, it was due to Choudhary that Gadkari missed becoming the party president for the second time. Does Modi want to give a message to Gadkari and Sangh by making Choudhary the CVC? Or is this some other masterstroke from Modi?
