‘Govt to make `suitable` statement in Parl on CVC issue’

Government will make a "suitable" statement on the Supreme Court quashing the appointment of PJ Thomas as Central Vigilance Commissioner.



New Delhi: Government will make a "suitable" statement on the Supreme Court quashing the appointment of PJ Thomas as Central Vigilance Commissioner.
"Government will next week make a suitable statement", Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Ashwani Kumar said in the Rajya Sabha after senior BJP member M Venkaiah Naidu raised the issue.
Naidu, joined by his party colleagues, wanted to know when Prime Minister Manmohan Singh would be making a statement on the "shocking" development.

The Opposition was agitated over Kumar`s earlier remarks that government would make a statement "if necessary".

"What is meant by `if necessary`? It was a shocking development," Naidu said asserting that the government has to make a statement.

In a setback to the government, the Supreme Court struck down the appointment of Thomas as CVC on the ground that he was facing charges in a corruption case relating to import of palmolein in Kerala.
