Kudos to the Apex court for interim order on CBI. Since, Director CBI was appointed  by a three member committee  comprising of PM, LOP  and  a sitting Supreme court  judge, the Apex court has inter alia ordered the inquiry against  Alok Verma to be completed within two weeks ie by 8th Nov 2018. Investigations to be monitored by a  retired Supreme court Judge. No reinstatement of Verma pending final decision.

The buck cannot stop here. Seized documents   put Asthana ,former Special Director ,CBI on the backfoot. He allegedly enjoyed  hospitality from big business houses in daughter's marriage. Wedding events  were  allegedly sponsored by one industrialist from Gujarat,who later turned hostile against Asthana and trapped him. These charges must be investigated,too. Both the accused must come out above board.

Being an extra-ordinary  case with nationwide   ramifications , no effort is being spared to create chaos as Rahul’s protestors kept  laying sieges around CBI offices across the country. A planned strategy by the Opposition  to create turmoil and paralyse offices.Rahul Gandhi in his youthful , dynastic arrogance led the gherao march of CBI offices and finally staging the nasty tamasha of courting arrest.

Activities in central and State govt offices has come to a standstill. Officers and Staff  of CBI feel utterly de-motivated and the public-at-large demoralized, shocked and confused.CBI has been a ray of hope for all and sundry.

National Security Advisor to PM merely added fuel to fire by pronouncing his pearls of wisdom : "Weak coalition is bad for country ". Was it a panic  reaction,one wonders ?He behaved  more like the  political advisor to PM  than his advisor on national security issues ! Rather strange for a bureaucrat to overstep his jurisdiction.

Not to lag behind, detaining four IB’s sleuths outside Verma’s residence and their manhandling by Delhi police constables reinforced suspicions of distrust between two organizations.

As skeletons keep tumbling out of the cupboards,  faith in the institution of  CBI , built over several decades may not be restored soon.The  premier investigative agency is besieged with several issues arising out of  political pressures on IOs,  acute shortage of staff and officers, animosity among the promotee officers, IPS regulars coming on deputation from different States’ cadres  and the home-grown officers. All this  has been detrimental to CBI's efficient functioning. 

Worse,  CBI’s home-grown cadre (insiders ) has been getting a raw deal for decades in promotion matters vis-a-vis the deputationists. Squabbling between the Prosecution and Investigative wings,is  common. Each wing interested in achieving one-up-manship over the other.

DOP&T, headed by successive Prime Ministers  have never  bothered to attend to these concerns.
