Expelled Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Prashant Bhushan today accused Narendra Modi government of trying to appoint “corrupt” people in anti-corruption bodies and “saffronise” academic institutions during the first year of its term.
“The shortlist made to appoint Central Vigilance Commissioner revealed that the topmost name was of a corrupt Income Tax officer who sat on the information regarding black money provided by Swiss bank HSBC. He used to meet former CBI Director Ranjit Sinha stealthily as he was probing him,” Bhushan said.
“We know that the CVC appointments have been postponed for now, but full efforts are being made by the Modi government to appoint corrupt people to anti-corruption institutions,” he said.
