Supreme Court puts on hold the appointment of Justice Virendra Singh as Uttar Pradesh Lokayukta.
What the actual story is?
In a special sitting, Supreme Court questions the state government over objections raised by the Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court on Singh’s selection. Uttar Pradesh Gov. Ram Naik had appointed Virendra Singh as the new Lokayukta. This was delayed after a local resident alleged the state hid the Allahabad High Court Chief Justice’s concerns about Singh.
The court would hear the matter now on January 4.
