Pawar asks Nafed to reconsider sacking MD

New Delhi: Terming Nafed`s decision to sack
its Managing Director C V Anand Bose as "incorrect", Food and
Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar today asked the co-operative
firm to reconsider the same.

Last week, Nafed Board had decided to repatriate Bose on
charges of alleged misuse of funds and misconduct. It had
requested the ministry to send a fresh panel of probables.

"If the senior officer has been deputed by the government
as MD, I do not think it is proper for (Nafed`s) Board to
remove him," Pawar said, when asked about his reaction on the
entire development.

"It seems that an unfortunate incident has happened and I
am looking into the matter," he added. "The official should
maintain good relationship with the elected representatives
and similarly they should maintain the dignity and respect of
the appointed officer".

When asked whether the ministry would direct Nafed to
reinstate Bose, Pawar said the Nafed Board should reconsider
its decision.

Yesterday, the Minister of State for Food and Agriculture
K V Thomas gave a clean chit to Bose.

"We have verified and enquired the complaint against
Anand Bose. We have found nothing against him ," Minister of
State for Agriculture K V Thomas had said.

Bose had refuted the allegations made by Nafed Board,
saying that he was paying the price for his crusade against
corrupt officials in the organisation.

Thomas said Nafed`s Additional MD P K Sharma, who was
given the charge of MD for the time being by the Nafed Board,
can not continue as Additional MD as he has involved some of
his relatives in the co-operative business.

Nafed procures agriculture produce on behalf of the
government. It also intervenes in the market to control
prices, if necessary.
