With BJP demanding annulment of the government's decision to appoint Ranjit Sinha as the new CBI director, Minister of State for Personnel V Narayanasamy today said his selection has been done "in a fair manner following the due process".

Speaking on the sidelines of a CBI function here, he said Sinha was the senior-most officer among the three names suggested by the Central Vigilance Commissioner and so Prime Minister Manmohan Singh decided his name.

"The Prime Minister in his wisdom considered Ranjit Sinha being seniormost 1974 batch officer... The Prime Minister decided the name of Ranjit Sinha in a fair manner following the due process in which CVC recommended three names... Where is the question of unfairness in this," he asked.

Narayanasamy said CVC had to finalise the names and recommended those of Ranjit Sinha, Sharad Sinha and Atul.

"Three names have been finalised, the Prime Minister is the authority to decide... As far as BJP is concerned, they are not behaving as a responsible Opposition and are not allowing the House to function. They want either my way or no way. It is not possible in a democracy," he said.

Criticising BJP for blocking House proceedings, he said people of the country have given mandate to the government to rule the country and take decisions but the BJP is not playing its "role of an Opposition party".
