The Delhi High Court has refused to entertain the PIL filed against the appointment of BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra as an Independent Director on the board of the OIL and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC). 

The court denied interfering and rejected the PIL which also sought cancellation of the appointment of Shashi Shanker as ONGC Chairman and Managing Director (CMD).

The PIL filed by NGO Energy Watchdog had earlier questioned the eligibility of Patra’s appointment. It has also sought cancellation of the appointment of Shashi Shanker as ONGC Chairman and Managing Director (CMD) on the ground that he was suspended in February 2015 for six months in connection with a probe into the award of a contract by the PSU.
