JAIPUR: The state authorities in a surprise move transferred additional chief secretary (home) Rohit Kumar Singh into the panchayati raj and rural development section. Main secretary (planning and information technology) Abhay Kumar Singh was transferred to the home department. Normally, the home division was managed by a senior officer in the amount of ACS.
Abhay Kumar Singh will get house, jail, vigilance and transportation. He’s also been given additional charge of information and public relations division.
Rohit Kumar Singh was moved to the home department just on July 3, just one-and-a-half months ago at a major bureaucratic reshuffle where the then chief secretary D B Gupta was substituted by Rajeeva Swarup at a regular reshuffle. Swarup was subsequently tackling the home division.
