Mr Ranjit Sinha was asked about Supreme Court's '"caged parrot" remark

Criticised by the Supreme Court as a “caged parrot” of its masters, CBI Director Ranjit Sinha on Thursday said whatever the apex court stated was correct.

Asked about the scathing remarks of the Supreme Court which had said that CBI was a “caged parrot” that “speaks in its master’s voice”, Mr Sinha told reporters here, “Whatever the Supreme Court said is correct.”

The court had come down heavily on CBI on Wednesday for sharing the status report on coal allocation scam probe with Law Minister Ashwani Kumar and officials of PMO and Coal Ministry.

The CBI had then issued a statement, saying, “CBI assures the Supreme Court of thorough and qualitative investigation into Coalgate. It will follow directions of Supreme Court in letter and spirit.”

Instead of applauding the Courts, the CBI and all executives of the bureaucracy in general need to take a leaf out of Ashok Khemka who stood for his ideals with conviction without bowing to the whims and fancies of the political class.

Such act would have left the CBI walk with head high instead of being reminded of their duties by the courts.

HATS OFF to your Sir! But I can see the fear in your eyes, the fear of attack from the enemy which is stronger (for a while though). Only if we Indians faced the fear without the thought of being bullied by the enemy, ONLY IF!!

If any vestige of decency left with the political leaders and bureaucrats involved in altering the text of the CBI Draft Report, they should resign at least after the SC's scathing remark. It is already too late. The whole educated community are watching the sordid episode: it is very sickening. Where is the probity in public life? No excuses no explanations needed. Act swiftly lest the Opposition Party tarnish the image of Indian Parliamentary System.
