New Delhi:Senior bureaucrat Shakuntala Gamlin on Saturday took charge as acting Chief Secretary of Delhi Government despite being asked by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal not to do soThe development takes place a day after Shakuntala Gamlin was appointed to the post by Lieutenant Governor of Delhi, Najeeb Jung. 

Earlier, a senior Delhi government official had said that in his letter to Gamlin, Kejriwal has said that her appointment is against the set rule.  In view of this, she should not take charge as acting Chief Secretary of Delhi. Lieutenant Governor of Delhi, Najeeb Jung gave the additional charge of Chief Secretary to Gamlin, a 1984-batch IAS officer, hours after she wrote a scathing letter to Jung claiming that she was pressurised by a senior bureaucrat in Chief Minister’s office not to be in race for the post due to her alleged proximity to BSES discoms.
