Parida tipped as CS, Delhi; Naresh Kumar also in race

By IndianMandarins- 19 Nov 2018


Indianmandarins has reliably learned that the Centre may pick up Manoj Kumar Parida (IAS:1986:UT) as the new Chief Secretary of Govt of NCT of Delhi. The post fell vacant after the appointment of Anshu Prakash (IAS:1986:UT) as Additional Secretary in the Department of Telecom.


Parida, Prakash’s batchmate, is Additional Chief Secretary, Home, PWD & General Administration Department. He has already served as CS, Puduchhery.


Also in the race to become CS is Naresh Kumar (IAS:1987:UT) who is currently serving as the Chairman of New Delhi Municipal Council (NMDC).


Prakash’s transfer is being described as “not exactly rewarding”. He was appointed Chief Secretary of Delhi in December last year. He hit headlines in February this year when he was allegedly assaulted at the hands of AAP MLAs at a midnight meeting at CM Arvind Kejriwal’s residence.
