AAP criticises JP Nadda’s induction

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday alleged that Narendra Modi government is rewarding those who have harassed honest officers and tried to shield the corrupt. The party criticised the Centre after the induction of BJP leader JP Nadda into the Union Cabinet.

‘The induction of BJP leader JP Nadda into the Union Cabinet is unfortunate and shows that the Narendra Modi government is rewarding those who have harassed honest officers and tried to shield the corrupt,’ said AAP spokesperson.

It is shocking that despite written evidence being available with the Prime Minister’s Office about the role of Nadda in getting whistleblower officer Sanjeev Chaturvedi removed as Chief Vigilance Officer of AIIMS, he has been made a Cabinet minister, he added.

AAP further alleged that Nadda’s correspondence with health minister Harsh Vardhan clearly proves that he tried at least thrice to get Chaturvedi removed, since an officer close to him was under scanner for alleged corrupt deals running into hundreds of crores. Nadda’s elevation is in direct contrast to the BJP’s pre-election promise of providing a corruption free government and this move will send a wrong signal for the country’s bureaucracy. Equally shocking has been the silence of the BJP leadership in the entire issue. Not once has this party cleared the air on the reasons behind Nadda’s unjustified interference in the functioning of AIIMS, a direct assault on it’s autonomy.
