Subramanium Hurriedly Demands Staff For DDCA Probe:Flutes Whose Tune

[New Delhi]Gopal Subramanium Demands Staff From Doval For DDCA Probe:Flutes Whose Tune
Subramanium Hurriedly[Without Getting Centre’s Approval To His Appointment]has demanded officers to become part of the investigation Of DDCA
Former Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium, who is heading the Commission of Inquiry probing the alleged irregularities in DDCA affairs, has written to National Security Adviser Ajit Doval, seeking names of competent officers to become part of the investigation.
He said.”I have written to him because he is the National Security Adviser. Apart from that, he is a very distinguished police officer…he is in the position to identify who are competent people in various organisations and to send names of independent police officers who can investigate meticulously,”
He Added “The reason to seek his help is also his ability to judge if there is any issue relating to the security which I am very particular about in the matter as anything may come up during the investigation,”
The noted lawyer said that his request to Doval is part of the procedure which calls for appropriate “logistical infrastructure” before beginning the probe.
“I dont want my hindsight to feel that he (Doval) was not sufficiently addressed in the beginning as he is a person who understands the ramifications correctly and that is why I wrote to him.
He told a TV channel.”I cannot judge by my personal imagination who can be a competent person to investigate,”
Subramanium further said that he is neither in the department of personnel nor in the government to know about that.”I do not want to pick someone I know but only someone who is competent enough. This is part of any enquiry procedure that you need to have logistical infrastructure in place to beginning the probe,”
However, Subramanium did not clarify about the number of officers he has asked for.
Yesterday, the former Solicitor General had strongly pitched for live telecast of the proceedings to make it transparent.
Arvind Kejriwal has appointed one man inquiry commission to investigate DDCA Episode.This has not yet been approved by The LG

Whereas dey enjoyed plum posts in DDCA coz of him,”
Sehwag, on his part, lauded Jaitley for being there for players. The swashbuckling batsman, who switched loyalties to Haryana from Delhi and retired from international cricket earlier this year, steered clear of making any political claim but lauded Jaitley’s role in helping players.
“In my time with DDCA if I ever came to know of any ‘surprising’ selection of a player, all I needed to do was to inform @arunjaitley,” Sehwag wrote.”And @arunjaitley Ji would immediately ensure correction and justice for the deserving players at #DDCA…Was a nightmare to speak to some others at DDCA but @arunjaitley ji was always available for players in case of any difficulty at any time,”
