New Delhi: There has been an agreement on the names to fill the vacant posts of the chief information commissioner (CIC) and central vigilance commissioner (CVC) at meetings held on Monday, official sources said.

They said that the agreement came after two meetings between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Leader of Congress in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge which were also attended by union ministers.

The sources said that Home Minister Rajnath Singh attended the meeting on CVC and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley attended the meeting concerning the CIC.

They said that the recommendations have been sent to President Pranab Mukerjee for his assent. The president is presently on a visit to Sweden and Belarus.

Meetings to select the CVC and CIC were also held last month but remained inconclusive.

The Congress has attacked the government over the “delay” in the appointments of CIC, CVC and Lokpal.

The party has said that the post of CIC has been lying vacant for the last eight months and that of CVC since September last year. (IANS)
