    Looking at the list of his achievements, one feels sad that an Officr of
    such accomplishments has had to bow out under a cloud. I am sure that soon it will be proved that his slate is clean

  2. adv. dr.g.balakrishnan says:

    true. CBI work is multifaceted . there shd at least two or three director generals to man various activities. Else some slackness likely.

    i would recommend to government of india to make two or three such sets up like CBI in different areas that should be out of bounds for any politicians as also public servants of other establishments as the CBI need to build up credence like Scotland yard of old Britain, then issues get sorted out in a better way.

    i would further recommend the CBI shd function in the lines of CAG then things would get straightened as problems in india today is political corruption the politicians say one thing to people and diametrically opposite things that is the serious problem today.

    once posts are filled with concurrence with UPSC like body after PM office confirms selection but certainly need be confirmed by UPS then by president of india, before that CJI shd also shd recommend then only finally the DG posts in CBI to be confirmed as people trusts only custodian of constitutions like the Supreme court and High courts that have to be kept in mind , else trust quotient would just erode sooner or later as is happening on Revenue today or its arbitrary actions;
