Bisht Busted

June 26 2017

The UP government in its previous incarnation had appointed 10 Information Commissioners, of which one was Arvind Singh Bisht. And who was he? Well he happens to be the father-in-law of then Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav’s adopted son Prateek. Given that stature of having the backing of the boss, Bisht naturally threw his weight around. Yet, every time the Chief Information Commissioner of the state would proceed on leave, he would give charge to one Mr Gupta, not Bisht. As such, Bisht took umbrage at this and had a faceoff with the boss himself. Bisht said that being the senior-most, it is he who should be given charge. But the CIC shot off that since all the Information Commissioners had been appointed on the same day, the mare fact that Bisht’s name, alphabetically only, tops the list does not make him the senior-most. An enraged Bisht thus knocked the doors of the court, but the latter slammed that door on his face, rubbishing his claims.
