No outsider can decide CVC only we have to select shouts Sushma Swaraj

Behind the scene
juicy grapevine on
CVC selection

Why was Sushma Swaraj red faced?


By R Rajagopalan

President Prathibha Patil is believed to have affixed her signature
in the order of warrant of appointing P J Thomas as Central Vigilance

President of India shall be administering oath of office to P J Thomas
at eleven am on Tuesday September 7 at Ashok Hall in Rashtrapathi Bhavan.

After a phone call from Principal Secretary to Prime Minister TKA Nair
made to Christie Fernandes Principal Secretary to President that a senior
official of the DOPT was reaching Rashtrapathi Bhavan, the process had
since begun. There is a set of formalities which are to be followed.
Issuance of warrant of order signed by President herself.
Organising a oath takin ceremony means printing of invitation
sprucing up of ashok hall etc.Department of Personnel is the
nodal ministry liaising with the President and Prime Minister
Office to coordinate the swearing in ceremony

behind the scene activites for selection of CVC is an interesting politically
sensitive but juicy grapevine.

Sushma Swaraj has been too good with UPA especially during monsoon
session having agreed to pass Nuke liability bill but after that she has
become too rigid. She is believed to have objected to the interference
of non players in the decision making of CVC.
