AAP questions absurd appointments

AAP questions ‘absurd appointments’ made by Centre

New Delhi, June 18 (IANS) The AAP on Saturday questioned the Centre over what it dubbed the “absurd appointments” made to leading institutes/institutions in the country, saying former cricketer Chetan Chauhan’s appointment as NIFT chairman proved its contention.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) also accused the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government of harming the reputation of the premier institutes/institutions by appointing “non-deserving candidates” to top posts.

“The Modi government is trying to make absurd appointments in premier institutes/institutions. Chetan Chauhan’s appointment as the new chairman of National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) proves it,” AAP leader Raghav Chadha said.

Chauhan was rewarded with the post for shielding Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in the Delhi and District Cricket Association controversy, he said.

Chadha said the former cricketer had nothing to do with fashion and claimed his appointment was done “illegally”.
