The Supreme Court is considering a case file by an activist regarding the appointment of the CVC. Several questions arise. Why should former bureaucrats be routinely appointed to such posts? Is the Government unable to scout for talent elsewhere? Are these posts rewards for "good behaviour" while in service? Are not such post-retirement plums of office part of the problem of corruption?
What could civil society, the aam aadmi do about such blatant abuse of discretionary powers by governments?
