New Delhi, Jul 14 (UNI) The Supreme Court today refused to entertain a petition challenging the appointment of Vinod Rai as Comptroller and Auditor-General of India (CAG).

Kamini Jaiswal, counsel for the petitioner NGO Public Cause Research Foundation contended before a bench comprising Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and Justice P Sathasivam that these days appointments to the constitutional posts are being made in violation of the constitutional provisions and guidelines.

She also contended that such important appointments are inspired by political considerations and not by merits.

The apex court, while refusing to entertain the petition, noted that no specific allegation of violations of guidelines against any authority has been made in the appointment.

Moreover, this court normally does not interfere with the constitutional appointments as these lies within the domain of the Executive.
