Priority to build strong vigilance mechanism: new CVC

New Delhi, June 9 (IANS) Former Central Board of Direct Taxes chief K.V. Chowdary, who will be sworn in as the new Central Vigilance Commissioner on Wednesday, has said his priority will be to build “a very strong vigilance mechanism”.

In an interview to CNN-IBN news channel, Chowdary said he will also look into protection for officers who were discharging their duties in a responsible manner.

“My priority would be to move along with my two colleagues and see that we build a very strong vigilance mechanism,” he said.

Chowdary said he had worked on several sensitive cases in the past and feels he was “competent for the job”.

Asked about reservations of senior lawyers Ram Jethmalani and Prashant Bhushan to his appointment, he said he did not want to get into any individual allegation made by eminent people.

“I am clear in my mind and heart that I have not done anything wrong. I go by rules book but not by allegations made.”

Answering a query, he said the relationship between CVC and Central Bureau of Investigation has been very clearly laid down.
