New Legislation on CBI not acceptable: Naveen
Bhubaneswar: Rejecting certain recommendations made in the fifth report of the Second Administrative Reforms Commission (ARC) on `public order` and new legislation on CBI, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today said those were against the federal structure.
"Some recommendations contained in the report are not acceptable as these impinge on our basic federal structure," Patnaik said on his return here after attending a conference of Chief Ministers in New Delhi.
Stating that enactment of new laws to deal with federal crimes is not acceptable since National Investigation Agency Act is already addressing these matters adequately, he said no new legislation on CBI should be made without consulting the states. Also the present system of CBI taking up investigation only with concurrence of state government be continued in the true spirit of federal structure, he added.
Deployment of central forces should be made only on the specific requisition of the state government, he said.
Patnaik, who along with other non-Congress Chief Minister, stalled formation of the proposed National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC), has been accusing the Congress-led UPA government of infringing on federal rights of the state. He had also sought more powers for the states.
