Swadeshi row: CAPF canteens’ CEO shunted | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: The chief executive officer of Kendriya Police Kalyan Bhandar (KPKB) who on May 29 issued a controversial order delisting over 1,000 products from central police forces canteens for being “purely foreign” and which was later withdrawn after many of the “delisted” items were found to be “swadeshi”, has been shunted out.
An office memorandum issued by the home ministry on Wednesday stated that KPKB CEO R M Meena was recalled to CRPF on June 1, the day the order was withdrawn, “owing to administrative reasons”. It added that CRPF DIG Rajiv Ranjan Kumar shall function as the CEO for three months in place of Meena, with immediate effect. TOI had reported on Tuesday (June 2) that Meena would be replaced.
Signed by Meena, the order split products into three categories — those purely made in India, those manufactured/assembled in India with imported raw materials, and purely imported products.
