I am still the CVC, says defiant Thomas
"I am still the CVC. The matter is in court. So no comments," Thomas told reporters here.
The Supreme Court is hearing a PIL by NGO, Centre for Public Interest, represented by advocate Prashant Bhushan, questioning the legality of the CVC`s appointment by a three-member selection committee under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
The apex court has fixed February 3 as the next day of hearing in the matter.
Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj has said she had expressed her dissent over the selection of Thomas, a 1973 batch IAS officer, on the ground that he was an accused in the Palmolien scam in Kerala.
