Vinod Rai being rewarded for maligning UPA: Congress

New Delhi, Jan 23 (IANS): The Congress on Saturday slammed the government for appointing former CAG Vinod Rai, as Chairman of Unity Small Finance Bank.

Congress Chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said: "First, as Chairman of Banking Recruitment Board, Now, as Chairman of Unity Small Finance Bank! The reward for maligning the UPA is being paid back in full by Prime Minister Narendra Modi."

As per reports, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has appointed former comptroller and auditor general (CAG) Vinod Rai as the independent chairman of the Unity Small Finance Bank (USFB).

Congress has accused Rai for maligning the UPA government and had sought an apology from him. Party leader Salman Khurshid had said in the past that Rai as the Chairman of the Banking Services Recruitment Board, and did not utter a single word on the "huge banking scam" that was taking place in the country after the Narendra Modi government took over in 2014.

Rai as CAG had in his report held then Telecom Minister A. Raja responsible for causing the state exchequer a loss of Rs 1,76,379 crore by allocating 2G spectrum licences at throwaway prices.

In 2017, a special CBI court had acquitted all the 18 accused, including A. Raja and K. Kanimozhi, in the 2G spectrum allocation case.

    Nothing to do with Congress image. It a fact that Rai was a stooge of the ruling disposition and is performance that were so far handed over have been lack-luster. Congress could not blame anyone but themselves for the situation they are in today. They should get out of their denial and look for fresh blood and legs, which even today they have in plenty if they have to take up BJP. Else implosion and no one to blame.

    The list of joining ex service men keep on increasing in BJP. Former judge Gogoi is now RS member, former General of Army V.K singh is now M.P from Gaziabad , former IPS officer Asim Arun now given ticket to contest election from Kanpur and the list is on. Imagine how many innocents might have become the victims under these public servants before they join BJP.....

    Also note that CAG’s supervision of the Narendra Modi government’s fiscal accountability has fell to 75%. In 2015 CAG filed 55 reports and in 2020 its just 14 !! CAG defense and railways audit cut down drastically............. Modi is just scared of questions, audits, press conferences..... No audit no accountability no scam.. sab changa siiii
