OF­FI­CER’S MESS

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Na­jeeb Jung, who took over as Delhi’s lieu­tenant gov­er­nor this July, has won his first bat­tle: To have his pre­de­ces­sor Te­jin­der Khanna’s of­fi­cer on spe­cial duty ( OSD) trans­ferred. Jung wanted to re­place Group Cap­tain Ran­jan Mukher­jee, a serv­ing

IAF of­fi­cer, with an OSD of his choice but was un­able to do so. Mukher­jee, on dep­u­ta­tion to the Delhi gov­ern­ment since 2007, fre­quently in­voked his clout with Rash­tra­p­ati Bha­van to stall the trans­fer. Jung fi­nally had his way re­cently, but it turns out the OSD is on leave, pre­par­ing for Round 2.
