Chandigarh, March 3
A day after MHA’s extension to Haryana DGP Manoj Yadava, state Home Minister Anil Vij has forwarded a panel of senior officers to CM Manohar Lal Khattar with adverse comments about the functioning of the officer.
He also asked Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Rajeev Arora to seek written explanation from the DGP for “not taking interest in making Haryana State Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) functional”.
Khattar has repeatedly reiterated that Yadava would continue to hold the post. In his letter to the CM, he claimed since the DGP could not control his staff, it might affect the law and order situation. He also demanded that the panel be forwarded to the UPSC for the selection of a new DGP. On the issue of the NCB, Vij told the ACS to issue directions to Yadava to submit reply within seven days.
The minister cited a demi official letter of state NCB chief Shrikant Jadhav wherein the latter alleged that the bureau remained only on paper even nine months after its inception due to “lack of interest by the DGP”.
