Hot seat

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is in a bind; he is not getting the right kind of civil servants to administer the Capital. Sources revealed that he once asked Parimal Rai, former NDMC Chairman during the Commonwealth Games, if he was willing to be the Chief Secretary of Delhi. Rai’s response was that he desired to serve the central government. The answer didn’t go well with Kejriwal, who retorted, “You seem to be corrupt since you are not with us.” The strained relations between Vijay Dev, Advisor to the Administrator of Chandigarh, i.e. Governor of Punjab, came as a godsend opportunity for Rai. He immediately moved the wheels using his close relations— developed while working in Goa—with a powerful cabinet minister. Lo and behold, orders were issued overnight and Rai was in Chandigarh the next day. Dev was transferred to Delhi but he has not joined, as he too is reportedly trying to get a central deputation. Meanwhile, Kejriwal is anxious that Dev joins because of his good record as Chief Election Officer of Delhi.
