Agency News

New Delhi, Jan 8: The Congress party on Tuesday said that the Supreme Court judgment on CBI Director is a lesson for the Modi Government.

Talking to media,the AICC media in charge Randeep Singh Surjewala, slamming Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the SC reinstated Alok Verma as the CBI Director, said that he has been exposed for destroying the premier investigation agency.

“The decision of the SC on Tuesday, restoring the CBI Director Alok Verma and the quashing the illegal and conspitorial decision of the Modi Government, is a slap on the policy decisions of this Government”, Surjewala said.

Hitting at the Government, he further said that scared of a possible probe in to the Rafale corruptions, PM Modi and his government panicked and at 12 o’clock in the night had illegally removed Alok Verma . Now it is also clear that both PM Modi and BJP are against of Indian Constitution.

Surjewala also said that PM Narendra Modi is the first Prime Minister who in a despotic fashion virtually killed the independence of the CBI so that it could not investigate in the corruption of Rafale.

“ He is the first Prime Minister who has decisively decimated the competence and independence of Central Vigilance Commission. Not only this, four economic advisors of the Government, two Governors of the Reserve Bank of India had to make unceremonious exits on account of the autocratic policies of this Government”, Congress leader said.

He also cautioned the Government that the ‘Danda tranta’ will not stand before the rule of law and the Constitution as the decision of SC proved on Tuesday.

“Governments have come and the governments have gone but the institutional integrity of our constitutionally and statutory institutions have always remained”,he added.

Surjewala further asked the government whether it will return the three months tenure of CBI Director lost on account of the conspiracy by the Government.

“If you have a little faith in the rule of law, you must return the three months of the CBI Director which he lost due to your decision”, he said. (UNI)
