BJP's Grewal unearth a scam in selection of Rajeev Mehrotra CMD RITES.
New Delhi ( 09 June 2017) : Sukhminderpal Singh Grewal, National Secretary BJP Kisan Morcha unearth a big scam in selection of Rajeev Mehrotra CMD RITES by UPA Government, Ineligible person illegally appointed to the post. BJP's Farmers Leader, write al letter to CVC Shri. KV Chaudhry and Hon'ble Railway Minister Shri. Suresh Prabhu that Ineligible person Rajeev Mehrotra has been illegally appointed to the post of CMD RITES and now he is bringing bad name to the Government by not implementing the current Government Policies and programs. He said that, I had gone deep into the wrongful selection of the CMD RITES Shri Rajeev Mehrotra who was selected by Former Railways Minister C.P.Joshi despite the fact that Mehrotra do not fulfill the basic eligibility requirement. Asper the recruitment rules, CMD RITES must possess the ‘Degree in Engineering or MBA’. But Shri Rajeev Mehrotra is only a ICWA and does not have either of the two essential degrees and is as such totally ineligible for this post.Despite ineligible for the post of CMD RITES, the previous UPA Government corruptly appointed Rajeev Mehrotra to this post violating the selection criteria as is exposed through information sought under RTI Act. Grewal told it is a settled law that an appointment made in violation of eligibility criteria must be declared null and void. Therefore, I impress upon the Hon’ble CVC to follow rule of law and remove Rajeev Mehrotra from the post of CMD RITES immediately so to ensure fair investigations into his illegal appointment. Since his appointment is illegal, all payments and salary given to Rajeev Malhotra since 2010 is illegitimate and loss to public exchequer and so must be recovered from him by CVC without any delay. He said that Former Railways Minister C.P.Joshi at that time personally ensured the selection of Rajeev Mehrotra and in return Rajeev Mehrotra is now working to discredit the present Government Policies and Programs. He said that the personal involvement of Congress Railways Minister C.P.Joshi in the selection of Rajeev Mehrotra can be seen from the fact that the then MD RITES V.K.Aggarwal, an officer of 1974 batch of Indian Railways Engineering service,was suspended on the last day his retirement on 31st Oct 2010 to make way for Rajeev Mehrotra. The circumstances under which Rajeev Mehrotra needs investigations since he does not fulfill the eligibility conditions and his appointment to the post of CMD RITES is illegal and is a case of glaring corruption. Grewal told about CMD Rajeev Mehrotra is earning Rs 46 lakh a year and drawing bonus of Rs 15-20 lakh per year since last 7 years. In addition he is having fully furnished house, free memberships of 2-3 clubs and a number of other benefits. His financial dealings need to be scrutinized immediately since a large amount of bad debts and doubtful debts have been created beside doubtful payments of huge amounts to consultants, direct purchases made under CSR though prohibited under law and illegitimate gifts and gift amounts to railways officials in contraventions to Government Policies. He said that he has written a letter to K.V.Chowdhary Hon’ble Chief Vigilance Commissioner, Narendra Modi ji, Hon’ble Prime Minister, Government of India, Arun Jaitley Ji, Hon’ble Finance Minister, Defense, Corporate Affairs, Dr. Jitendra Singh Ji, Hon’ble Minister for DOPT, New Delhi and Ajit Doval Ji, Hon’ble National Security Advisor about this scam, about the CMD RITES and now he is bringing bad name to the Government by not implementing Policies and programs, the current Narendra Modi's Government.
