Centre sends Wattal (Finance Secretary) to J&K as troubleshooter  


R P Watal IAS

Amid the growing uncertainty over BJP-PDP alliance and fate of Govt in J&K the centre has chosen Union Finace Secretary Ratan P Watal (IAS:1979:AP) to handle and settle the issues. After Mehbooba Mufti threatened to review the Agenda of Alliance last week the uncertainty had escalated. Now the senior bureaucrat has been sent to J&K to serve as troubleshooter. It shows Centre’s confidence in the effectiveness of Wattal. Former J&K CM Mufti Md Syeed was keen to bring Wattal to the state as Chief Secretary but the Govt had denied relieving him from Centre.
