Bhopal, March 17 (IANS) Madhya Pradesh BJP chief V.D. Sharma, former Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and the leader of the Opposition Gopal Bhargava met Governor Lalji Tandon on Tuesday evening and asked him to prevent the large-scale appointments being made by the Kamal Nath government. They contended that the minority government can’t make constitutional appointments.
They said the government had made several appointments without taking the Governor into confidence. The government announced the appointment of Shobha Ojha as the chairman of Women’s Commission, J.P. Chanopia as chairman of Backward Classes Commission and even the new Chief Secretary Gopal Reddy. The retiring Chief secretary S R Mohanti has been appointed the Director General of the RCV Noronha administrative academy.
Most of the appointments have been made after the ruling party lost majority in the Assembly, said BJP leaders.
The Governor said he was not aware of these appointments and transfers and will look into the appointments.
Chouhan said the BJP will resist all the appointments till the government clears the floor test.
