Sanjeev Chaturvedi, the IAS whistle blower who kicked open a can of worms as the chief vigilance officer at AIIMS, has approached the central administrative tribunal (CAT) accusing the government of stalling his promotion willfully. This is the fourth time in five months that he has appeared before CAT.
The CAT on Thursday issued a notice to the Haryana government and the Central government asking them respond to the allegations. In his petition, Chaturvedi has alleged that though he is eligible for a promotion into the non-functional selection grade, the government stalled his promotion because he had allegedly caused a stir during his tenure as the CVO at AIIMS by launching action against ‘influential politicians and bureaucrats presently occupying offices in the Central and state Government.’
A 2002 batch IFoS officer, he has competed 13 years of service during which he has claimed he has an outstanding record and a clearance certificate from the cadre controlling ministry, Chaturvedi said.
