Goswami’s sacking politically motivated: Harsh

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Feb 9: While the Union Government must have derived the sadistic satisfaction over having sacked Anil Goswami as the Union Home Secretary, there are still larger issues which need to be addressed and answered by the Union Home Ministry, said Harshdev Singh, JKNPP Chairman and former Minister.
He said that there is no doubt that the decision was taken after the reported admission of Goswami of having called up CBI to dissuade them from summoning a former Union Minister for his questioning and arrest. But the most pertinent question, he said was whether Goswami had been the only officer till date to have exerted his influence in the affairs of CBI and that everything is going smoothly in the working of CBI.
He said that selective sacking of officers like Anil Goswami is only indicative of vindictive approach and politically motivated decisions of the BJP led Government.
Singh added that the timing of sacking Anil Goswami amply goes to indicate that the basic motive of BJP was to influence West Bengal elections and Goswami was merely used as a pawn and as a sacrificial lamb and as such his removal is totally politically motivated.
Stressing the need for grant of constitutional status to CBI, he said that it should be accountable to the Parliament alone and not to the Government as is the case with Comptroller and Auditor General of India.
