Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday hailed as "historic" the quashing of the appointment of CVC PJ Thomas by the Supreme Court and said the Centre had never faced such an embarrassment.

Welcoming the judgement as "historic and important", Kumar said, "Never before such situation occurred at the national level. The Centre has also not faced such an embarrassment before."

The chief minister said the verdict had proved beyond doubt that the democracy of the country was "very very strong."

"The Centre in this case has deliberately overlooked the facts and later defended the decision. Now it is for the Centre to decide what steps it wants to take in future."

Ridiculing the Centre, Kumar said, "The judgement is like kirkiri (particle of dust) falling in the eyes of Centre."
