Ma­ha­rash­tra CM Deven­dra

Fad­navis de­nied se­nior bu­reau­crat Medha Gadgil an op­por­tu­nity to be­come the first woman chief sec­re­tary by ap­point­ing her ju­nior Di­nesh Ku­mar Jain to the cov­eted post on April 30. Mantralaya buzz has it that she was over­looked be­cause her hus­band Anant Gadgil is a Congress leader. Fad­navis re­port­edly felt un­com­fort­able hav­ing a po­lit­i­cal op­po­nent’s spouse as his chief sec­re­tary. Though the CM can over­look se­nior­ity in mak­ing ap­point­ments, the al­ready dis­grun­tled bu­reau­cracy is not happy with the move.
