NEW DELHI: In a major administrative reshuffle in the Delhi Administration, Chief Secretary S. Regunathan was on Tuesday relieved of the additional charge of Principal Secretary (Power) while Delhi Jal Board CEO Rakesh Mohan was transferred and posted as Principal Secretary (Public Works Department). Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation (DTTDC) Managing Director Ramesh Negi was also transferred and sent on deputation to Goa.
While Principal Secretary (Health) Rakesh Mehta has been given charge of Principal Secretary (Power), Mr. Mohan would be replaced by senior IAS cadre officer, Arun Mathur who had been awaiting posting after his return from deputation.
Sanat Kaul (IAS) would take over from Mr. Negi as Managing Director DTTDC.
The present Principal Secretary (PWD), P.M. Singh, will now hold charge of Member-Secretary, Delhi Commission for Women.
During Mr. Negi's tenure, DTTDC not only organised cultural and festive events but also went on to execute various important projects including the recently approved signature bridge over the Yamuna to replace the present Wazirabad bridge. Known to be a dedicated and officer of integrity, Mr. Negi shifted the focus of DTTDC from selling liquor to taking up developmental projects and also promoting tourism especially Delhi as a major destination.
The decision to relieve Mr. Regunathan of the additional charge of Power Department is being seen as a move by the Chief Minister to placate the dissidents and MLAs within the ruling party who have been extremely critical of the working style of Mr. Regunathan.
It is also learnt that Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) Managing Director, Anaindu Majumdar, is being considered for posting as Principal Secretary (Technical Education). He will be replaced by Director (Social Welfare) G. Narendra.
