Who will be the Cab Sec?

sept14-img-27By the end of October, the Narendra Modi government has to select a new Cabinet Secretary of India. If the current Cabinet Secretary–Ajit Kumar Seth–does not get an extension, the government will be on the lookout for a competent and efficient replacement. Sources disclose that two prominent names are being circulated in the corridors of power. PK Mishra, Secretary, Power, a 1977-batch IAS officer of the UP cadre, is the most prominent name. Another officer’s name that has surfaced for the coveted and prestigious post is that of Anil Goswami, Secretary, Home Affairs, a 1978-batch IAS officer from the J&K cadre and an experienced bureaucrat. Both senior officers have acclimatised themselves as per the needs and culture of the new dispensation. We will have to wait and watch to see who emerges as the new boss of the bureaucracy.
