The Ministry of Environment and Forests has reportedly ordered the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare to give its approval to former AIIMS Chief Vigilance Officer Sanjeev Chaturvedi’s delegation to the Delhi Government.
In February, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had written to Union Minister for Environment Prakash Javadekar asking for the services of Chaturvedi as an officer on special duty on deputation. The Centre till date has not obliged this request of Delhi CM.
The Hindu published a letter which was sent out on June 8 paving the way for Chaturvedi’s appointment to the Delhi Government as an OSD.
A copy of the same has been attached below:
Chaturvedi, who was responsible for unearthing several scams in Haryana had complained of threats and harassment before asking for change in cadre.
Reports suggest that the whistle blower officer had even obtained a No Objection Certificate from both Haryana and Uttarakhand governments. But after BJP formed government at the centre, Modi-led committee refused to entertain his request asking him to obtain the NOC all over again.
Only two weeks ago, the Central Administrative Tribunal cancelled the Narendra Modi led panel’s decision on Sanjeev Chaturvedi calling it a violation of principles of natural justice.
