Niti Aayog vice- chief Rajiv Kumar cautioned

Niti Aayog vice-chairman Rajiv Kumar violated the Model Code of Conduct by speaking against the Congress’s NYAY or minimum income guarantee promise plan, the Election Commission said on Friday evening, rejecting his reply as not satisfactory.

“The commission has considered your reply and has not found the same to be satisfactory,” the Election Commission said in a letter to Mr Kumar. “Public Servants should not only be impartial in their conduct but also in their public utterances, which was found wanting in the instant case,” the letter also said. He has been told to exercise caution in future.
