As the nomination process to fill the vacant seats in the DDCA was completed over the weekend, son of former Union Minister and ex-DDCA president Arun Jaitley emerged the sole candidate for the top post.
Jaitley Jr had submitted his candidature on the last day of nominations. The only other candidate in the fray for the president’s post Sunil Kumal Goel opted out of the race.
“I don’t mind a contest. It is good for the democratic process. The Idea is to bring in good people at appropriate times to have checks and balances in place,” Rohan told national news agency PTI.
“The first idea is to get a Vision Document and also put the necessary checks and balances in place so that we move in right directions,” he said.
