Delhi Govt gets whistleblower Sanjiv Chaturvedi on board as OSD


By NewsGram Staff Writer

The Delhi Government led by the Aam Aadmi Party is all set to get whistleblower bureaucrat Sanjiv Chaturvedi on board as the Officer on Special duty (OSD). Sanjiv Chaturvedi is an Indian Forest Service officer and currently the deputy secretary of All India Institute of Medical Sciences(AIIMS). He also served as a Chief Vigilance Officer (CVO) at AIIMS during 2012-14. He is expected to take charge as the OSD within a span of 2 weeks.

According to a national daily, any amendments by the centre to the Annual Performance Appraisal Report (APAR) of the 2002-batch Indian Forest Service (IFS) official have been restrained by the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT)

Ministry of Health and Family Welfare had been directed by the Ministry of Environment and Forests to give its approval to Mr. Chaturvedi’s transfer to the Delhi Government after the Tribunal rendered  an order of the Appointments Committee of Cabinet (ACC) unfruitful.

The ACC is headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

ACC’s order had sought to return a proposal to change Mr. Chaturvedi’s cadre from Haryana to Uttarakhand in January 2015. Fresh consent was being sought from the Delhi and Haryana Governments over the same.

A complaint was filed by Mr. Chaturvedi on the grounds of ‘extreme hardship and vindictive attitude’ at the hands of bureaucrats and political executives of the State that he had to face. According to Chaturvedi, there was no cooperation whatsoever. Procedures were irregular in nature, and his efforts to adhere to rules were disregarded.

He also demanded action against illegalities within his jurisdiction as a public servant.

The Government replied that ‘it was ready for the reconsideration of Mr. Chaturvedi’s case and demanded time for disposal of his application’, adding that ‘they were prepared to consider the points raised by him afresh.’

A Delhi Government source said it would soon be able to accommodate Mr. Chaturvedi, ‘at a significant post’, deliberations regarding which were underway.

The BJP protest came in the wake of the alleged assault on Prakash during a meeting at the Chief Minister’s residence on Monday night.

Prakash has alleged that he was beaten up by Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan and another MLA in the presence of Kejriwal.

The Delhi Police has arrested Khan and Deoli MLA Prakash Jarwal.

The Delhi BJP workers also staged protests at several places in the city demanding the dismissal of all the AAP MLAs including the disqualified MLAs.

Meanwhile, Delhi BJP spokesperson and son of the first Delhi Chief Minister Madanlal Khurana, Harish Khurana, along with party workers protested outside the AAP Moti Nagar MLA’s office.

Khurana told IANS: “We took out a bike rally in Moti Nagar constituency over the present administrative situation in the national capital.

“The way Kejriwal government is behaving, it is clear that the entire administration has been stalled.

“And if the top official of the Delhi government can be attacked inside the Chief Minister’s residence then one can imagine how much a common man is safe on the streets of Delhi,” he said.

He added that in the Moti Nagar constituency, the people do not get proper water or electricity. (IANS)
