New Delhi: With the arrest of Sudheendra
Kulkarni in the cash-for-vote case, Railways appear to be in a quandary over his association with an high-powered expert committee and are seeking legal opinion for his possible removal.
Kulkarni, a former aide of senior BJP leader LK Advani, was included in the high-powered committee set up by
then Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee to suggest ways for
attracting private investment in railway projects. the panel
was headed by then FICCI Secretary General Amit Mitra.

Highly placed sources said railways is seeking legal
opinion before taking a call on the issue as Kulkarni is not a
civil servant.
However, sources said they are of the view that Kulkarni
should put in his papers on his own in the overall interest of
the Railways.

The 15-member committee has become headless after Mitra
took over as the Finance Minister of West Bengal.
