IPS officer Abhinav Kumar has been made Additional Principal Secretary to Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami. Let us tell you that for the first time after the formation of the state, the post of Additional Principal Secretary has been created. Abhinav Kumar, who holds the post of Additional Director General of Police, is considered a sharp officer.
SS Sandhu is the new Chief Secretary of Uttarakhand
Earlier, as soon as he took charge of power in Uttarakhand, Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami removed Omprakash, who was posted as Chief Secretary. In his place, 1988 batch Uttarakhand cadre IAS officer Dr. Sukhbir Singh Sandhu has been made the new Chief Secretary of the state. Sandhu is taking charge as the 17th Chief Secretary of the state.
Major reshuffle expected in bureaucracy
After replacing Chief Secretary Om Prakash, now there is a possibility of a major reshuffle in the bureaucracy of the state. Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami has also indicated this. It is believed that in a few days there is going to be a major reshuffle in the bureaucracy from the secretariat to the districts. The DM and SSPs of many districts might get changed.
According to sources, there was a possibility of a major reshuffle in the bureaucracy even before the exercise of change of leadership was carried out in the state. There was no major change in the bureaucracy during Tirath Singh Rawat’s government but now with the replacement of the Chief Secretary, the bureaucracy is likely to be shuffled like a pack of cards. Sources are telling that the government will first change the departments of some key officers posted in the secretariat and after that, the district magistrates and SSPs will be changed.
