SP says no relation with Virendra Singh, Lokayukta designate

Lucknow - Senior Samajwadi Party leaders and Uttar Pradesh PWD Minister Shivpal Singh Yadav clarified that he has no family relations with Lokayukta in-waiting Justice (retd.) Virendra Singh.

“There are some reports highlighting matrimonial relations between me and my family with Justice (retd.) Virendra Singh. I wish to clarify that there is no relation between me and his family,” Yadav said in a statement here.

Reports claim that after the Supreme Court had named Justice Singh as the next Lokayukta, Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court DV Chandrachud had written a letter to Governor Ram Naik highlighting relations between Shivpal Yadav and Justice (retd.) Virendra Singh.

Mr. Yadav said “Media has claimed family ties between him and Virendra Singh. This news is wrong.”
