Appointment Controversy

Why in news?

  • Question is of probity in appointment at highest levels in institutions central to the intellectual life of the nation

Issue is not that people have been removed or replaced. But issue is of Instances of people removed without due justification (or we can say without due process)

  • Mahesh Rangarajan - Director of Nehru Memorial Museum and Library
  • Setu - Malayalam author at National Book Trust
  • Raghunath K. Shevgaonkar and Anil Kakodkar of IIT's forced to resign
  • Issues related to present head of Indian council of Historical Research 
  • In case of Gajendra Chauhan of Film and Television Institute of India Govt says that it has followed due process

  • Institutions need to be insulated from the politics of the day
