Questioning the selection process of the State Government to choose the Managing Director (MD) of Uttarakhand Pey Jal Nigam, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has alleged that the officials of Peyjal Nigam and some ministers in the government seem to be in connivance to bring a particular person to the post of MD.
The state spokesperson of AAP, Ravindra Anand said that the government recently amended the guidelines and made some contradictory bylaws only to facilitate the appointment of a particular person to the post of the MD of Peyjal Nigam. He said that as per the previous guidelines of the State Government, there should be at least five eligible candidates should be taken up for consideration before making selection of one among them. But at present, only one person is being considered by the government for the post of the MD. The government is ignoring laws and promoting corruption just to bring a particular person to the post of MD, said Anand. Moreover, Anand said that the chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat talks about zero tolerance of corruption in the State and if he really believes in his statement, he should look into this matter with all seriousness.
