By - 23 Mar 2020


With the comeback of Shivraj Singh Chauhan as MP Chief Minister the state is bound for a top level bureaucratic shake up. Indianmandarins Shivraj Singh's old team may make a comeback in an immediate reshuffle. Though, one should expect that Jyotiraditya Scindhia may certainly bring some officers from his camp. 

If some top sources are to be believed the newly appointed Chief Secretary M Gopal Reddy (IAS:1985:MP) may be changed. Two senior IAS officers Iqbal Singh Bains (IAS:1985:MP) and Radheyshyam Julaniya (IAS:1985:MP) are frontrunners to become Reddy’s successor.

Further, the CMO may witness continuity of Ashok Kumar Barnwal (IAS:1991:MP) as Principal Secretary to CM. After taking over from Shivraj, Kamalnath had surprised one and all by continuing Barnwal as his Principal Secretary.

Top sources say that Shivraj may pick Anurag Jain (IAS:1989:MP) also as another PS to CM. Jain, considered among few brightest civil servants, had a vast experience during his tenure as Joint Secretary, PMO.   

Two of Shivraj’s previous secretaries Hari Ranjan Rao (IAS:1994:MP) and Vivek Agrawal (IAS:1994:MP), presently serving at Centre as Joint Secretary, may also be recalled to cadre state pre-maturely.
