Cong slams appointment of Vinod Rai in Bank Board

The Congress on Sunday questioned the legality of the appointment of former Comptroller and Auditor General Vinod Rai to the post of Chairman of the newly constituted Banks Board Bureau.

Violation of law

Congress’s chief spokesman Randeep Singh Surjewala claimed that Rai’s appointment violated Article 148 (4) of the Constitution that bars a former CAG from holding government office.

“The PM confers Padma award, appoints ex-CAG Vinod Rai as Chairman of Banks Bureau. Jaitleyji said no jobs for ex-CAG. U-turn,” Surjewala tweeted.

The Congress also dug out Arun Jaitley’s remarks as the Leader of the Opposition disfavouring post-retirement jobs for CAG, Central Vigilance Commissioner and Central Election Commissioner.
