Injustice Has Been Done to Alok Verma: Pritish Nandy

“Every Government servant has the right to be heard before being sacked so ignominiously,” he said.

Veteran journalist and filmmaker Pritish Nandy voiced his concern over the ousting of former Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) chief Alok Verma by Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led high-power Selection Committee on Thursday, January 10.

In a tweet posted on Friday, January 11, Nandy said, “I agree 100% with @Swamy39 that injustice has been done to Alok Verma by dismissing him without giving him a hearing before the 3 man committee. Every Government servant has the right to be heard before being sacked so ignominiously.”

On Thursday, in a debate on a national TV channel, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy had slammed Modi for ousting Verma as the CBI chief merely days after the Supreme Court (SC) had reinstated him. “What was the difficulty in not asking (Alok) Verma to explain?” Swamy had asked on the show.

Verma was ousted as the CBI chief after Modi and Justice AK Sikri voted against him continuing his tenure, while Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge voted in favour. Following his ouster, Verma tendered his resignation from service on Thursday, refusing to accept his new posting as the DG Fire Service.
