On January 11, 2019, CBI chief Alok Verma submitted his resignation from service, a day after he was removed from his post by a high powered committee.
The three-member selection committee headed by PM Modi removed Verma from the post and transferred him. However, he declined the position and submitted his resignation.
Soon after a claim started circulating on the social media that Alok Verma in his resignation said that PM Modi is the most corrupt Prime minister of India.
A post by a Facebook page, I Support Ravish Kumar read” पूर्व सीबीआई निदेशक अलोक वर्मा ने दिया इस्तीफा पत्र लिखकर नरेंद्र मोदी को बताया आज़ाद भारत का सबसे भ्रष्ट प्रधानमंत्री”. At the time of writing the article, the post had more than 17,500 shares.
