Who appointed Chetan Chauhan?

from cricket to fashion

cricketer-Chetan-ChauhanEVEN some politicians in the BJP are not able to digest how well-known cricketer Chetan Chauhan was appointed the Chairman of the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT). A loyalist of former Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) President and Union Minister Arun Jaitley, sources said Chauhan gained from the backing of the BJP, but were hard-pressed to explain his credentials for the post. Sources disclosed that even Prime Minister Narendra Modi was not kept in the loop. It is reported that an all-powerful minister in the Modi government called Textiles Minister Santosh Gangwar and asked him to release a notification appointing Chauhan immediately. Gangwar was confused because he had not received any instructions from the PMO. Sources say the minister tried to ask the leader if he had spoken to the PM about Chauhan. The all-powerful leader confirmed that he had informed the PM. Gangwar had no reason to disbelieve him and announced the appointment. Incidentally, the other minister was on leave that day. After the announcement, Gangwar got a call from the PMO and, sources say, the minister got a piece of the PM’s mind. Gangwar was reportedly told that he should have asked the PMO before taking any such decision.
