SC pushes govt on NGT posts
A Bench of Justices G S Singhvi and S J Mukhopadhaya also expressed displeasure over failure of the government’s law officer in putting up a file relating to the recommendation made by the CJI for appointment of NGT chairperson. The court on Wednesday fixed the matter for hearing on Thursday after ASG A S Chandhiok said the Centre had sought some “clarifications” from CJI over the recommendation of a sitting SC judge for the chairperson’s post. The ASG was asked to bring the relevant file.
However, on a perusal of the file, the Bench noted that a letter by the CJI relating to the appointment was not in it.
