Feb 02, 2019 23:52 IST

Union Minister Jitendra Singh has alleged that Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge, who is a member of the PM-led panel, tried to 'manipulate' the criteria for selection of the CBI chief. The minister said Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, who is also part of the panel fully endorsed the selection. "For the selection of CBI Director, a very objective "criteria was followed, the Union minister said, Kharge is guilty of trying to manipulate the independent assessment to accommodate names of his preference."
