Supreme Court: Hearing is going on in the Supreme Court on bringing more transparency in the appointment of Election Commissioners. Seeing the file of the appointment of Election Commissioner Arun Goyal, the Supreme Court has asked the Center a question. The court asked – “The post was vacant since May 15. Suddenly, in less than 24 hours, the entire process from sending the name to approval was completed. What happened between May 15 and November 18?”
The court further said, “The Law Minister sent 4 names… The question is also why these 4 names were sent. Then how was the junior most officer selected out of them. Took VRS.” At the same time, the Attorney General, who was defending the government, said that nothing wrong happened in the process. Earlier also the appointment has been done in 12 to 24 hours.
