The Supreme Court Monday directed the central government to place before it the file to indicate that it has followed all procedures of consultation in the appointment of PJ Thomas as the central vigilance commissioner (CVC).
The apex court bench, headed by Chief Justice SH Kapadia, also asked the central government whether Thomas satisfied the criteria of being an outstanding civil servant, as required for appointment as the CVC.
The appointment of Thomas as the head of the central anti-corruption watchdog, the Central Vigilance Commission, had sparked off a storm, with Leader of Opposition Sushma Swaraj alleging that Thomas, a former telecom secretary, was appointed to cover up the 2G spectrum scam. The Bharatiya Janata Party had also boycotted his swearing-in ceremony.
