According to news agency ANI, Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena on Saturday approved the Delhi government’s decision to give Public Works Department Minister Atishi the charges for the service and vigilance departments.
A day after the Rajya Sabha approved the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Bill, 2023, which replaced an ordinance released by the federal government on May 19 to give the LG authority over bureaucrats in Delhi, the AAP government announced its decision to assign additional fees to Atishi.
In June, Saxena gained additional responsibilities for the revenue, planning, and finance ministries after accepting the suggestion to reorganise the Cabinet. Kailash Gahlot, the former minister of transportation, once oversaw these three departments.
Atishi will now hold 14 portfolio
Atishi will now hold 14 portfolio, including education and power, the most of any municipal government minister. Atishi is a member of the Kalkaji constituency.
The Delhi Cabinet has made several changes to ministerial positions in recent months. Saurabh Bharadwaj and Atishi were sworn in as ministers in March this year, following the resignations of Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain, who are now in jail on money laundering charges.
