Will Follow Supreme Court Order "In Letter And Spirit", Says CBI

Congress President Rahul Gandhi led a noisy protest march by the Opposition against the government move to strip CBI Director Alok Verma of his power, which he said was an attempt to prevent an investigation into the Rafale deal. The CBI director gets a fixed two-year term; Verma was set to retire in January next year.
Walking in the front, Rahul Gandhi led hundreds of people who shouted slogans and carried placards and posters that criticised the government.
Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha said the Supreme Court order had, in fact, clipped the government's wings by making the CVC inquiry time-bound and placing Patnaik above the CVC to monitor the investigations.
The court also barred newly-appointed CBI interim director M.
The Apex court also barred interim director M Nageswara Rao from taking any major policy decision and said decisions taken by him since October 23 till date shall not be implemented.
The petition has been filed two days after Verma moved the court challenging the similar action against him by the government.

We will see how he is tomorrow. "It looks like this and Celtic Park will be decisive to finish second and qualify from the group". You play so many games and at certain times in the season that's going to happen so we'll just have to deal with it.
Mr Gandhi has said the midnight removal of CBI chief Alok Verma was a "disgraceful and unconstitutional attempt" by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to block an investigation into the Rafale fighter jet deal.
The CBI said on Friday it would follow "in letter and spirit" the Supreme Court order directing the Central Vigilance Commission or CVC to complete its probe into bribery allegations involving CBI Director Alok Verma in two weeks and under the supervision of a retired top court judge.
The BJP, therefore, thought that the three-judge SC bench vindicated the Union government's stance, which thought the SC effectively allowed the CVC to finish its probe.
Rao also has the charge of additional director, along with A K Sharma and Praveen Sinha, both from the Gujarat cadre. It took a sarcastic take on the allegations of corruption levelled against Verma and Asthana which says "CBI can't C I to I?" Old-timers in Bihar recall Asthana as someone who fought shy of any publicity, not someone with no qualms about getting featured in a video made to eulogise him. He said only the PM, chief justice of India and the leader of opposition can appoint and remove the CBI director.
Patnaik, as chief justice of Madhya Pradesh High Court, was also a member of "In-House committee" of the apex court that probed allegations against Justice Soumitra Sen of the Calcutta High Court.
As Verma's plea comes up for hearing in Supreme Court on Friday, October 26, many concerned citizens and social media users have sought the intervention of the top court to ensure his safety and security.

For that reason, if Gruden isn't open to trading Carr, he should surely be much more emphatic in denying the rumors. If they can't, Gruden will have a hard choice to make at QB, as the team has three first-round draft picks in 2019.
Till Wednesday evening, it was unclear whether Asthana was also planning to challenge the CVC orders divesting him from his role. Verma moved the Supreme Court Wednesday challenging the government's decision after which it agreed to hear his plea on Friday.
