Chen­nai : A PIL pe­ti­tion has been filed in the Madras High Court as­sail­ing the ap­point­ment of G Theva Neethi Dhas, IAS, as of­fi­cer on spe­cial duty to Puducherry Lt Gov­er­nor Kiran Bedi. A bench of Jus­tices M Sathya­narayanan and P Ra­ja­man­ickam, be­fore which the PIL from P Sar­a­vanan came up for hear­ing last week, or­dered no­tice to au­thor­i­ties con­cerned re­turn­able by De­cem­ber 7. Ac­cord­ing to pe­ti­tioner, on a pro­posal from Bedi on April 17, the Cen­tre had sent a re­ply stat­ing that Dhas can­not be ap­pointed as Ad­vi­sor to L-G, but may be con­sid­ered for as­sign­ment of con­sul­tancy for a fixed pe­riod. The ap­point­ment was il­le­gal as the pro­ce­dure should be on sub­mis­sion of pro­posal be­fore the con­sul­tancy eval­u­a­tion com­mit­tee, the pe­ti­tioner said. ENS
