Uttarakhand government is in a dilemma over granting extension to Power Corporation Managing DirectorS S Yadav who is embroiled in a sting controversy.
Yadav's tenure as the head of state power corporation comes to an end on July 24.
Considered close to the corridors of power, Yadav is keen on an extension but with a sting CD purportedly showing the official allegedly taking money from someone in public domain, the state government finds itself in a fix over his extension.
The sting video was shown by many channels and it also went viral on the social media last month prompting Congress to ask Chief Minister Harish Rawat to send the official on forced leave till his name is cleared in the controversy.
Though PCC chief Kishore Upadhyay's demand was not conceded, the CM instituted an inquiry headed by Additional Secretary Niraj Khairwal into the controversial CD.
However, official sources on request of anonymity here said the probe had made no progress till date.
Main opposition BJP and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) have been strongly opposing extension to Yadav and also demanding a CBI probe into his functioning as the state power corporation MD.
When asked whether or not Yadav will be given an extension, Chief Minister's media adviser Surendra Kumar evaded a direct reply saying "an appropriate decision will be taken when the time comes.
