Hold appointment of CBI chief: BJP to PM

Hold appointment of CBI chief

Swaraj and Jaitley pointed out that the select committee has recommended that the "Director of the CBI will be appointed by a collegium" comprising the PM, Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha and Chief Justice of India. They stressed that the recommendation had been made "unanimously", and therefore likely to be "part of the law, which will be legislated very soon".

The unanimity, the BJP leaders said, indicated a national desire to take the "power away from the government of the day alone to appoint the CBI director", because "empirical evidence shows that these appointments were motivated by collateral considerations".
