Anil Vij Seeks To Replace Haryana's DGP Manoj Yadava Urgently
With Haryana DGP Manoj Yadava into his extended term, Home Minister Anil Vij has asked the home secretary to initiate the process of finding a replacement "urgently", telling him in a stern letter that he will be held responsible for any future legal complication in the matter.
In his communication to Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Rajeev Arora, Mr Vij directed him to send the names of eligible officers to the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) to be considered for the post of the state's next police chief.
"The matter may be treated as most urgent and of top priority," he told the senior bureaucrat. "You may note that you shall be held personally responsible for any future legal or any kind of complications in this matter."
Mr Vij also drew the home secretary's attention to the Haryana government's order dated February 18, 2019 vide which Mr Yadava was appointed as the DGP for a period of two years.
