SC order on CBI director a slap in face of Modi govt: NCP

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

The NCP Tuesday dubbed a "slap" in the face of government the supreme court order reinstating Alok Verma, who was sent on administrative leave by the Centre last year.

The apex court has set aside the Centre's October 23 order to divest Verma of his powers following a feud between him and his deputy

said people are now hoping that Verma will act on major cases, including the Rafale deal, before his tenure as the ends on January 31.

"The SC's decision to reinstate is a slap in the face of the Policy decision is a different issue, but he does have the powers to arrest," Malik said.

While reinstating Verma, the top court has restrained him from taking any major policy decision till completion of a CVC (Central Vigilance Commission) probe into corruption charges against him.

"People are now hoping he will act on major cases he was handling, including Rafale," Malik added.
