The latest grapevine suggests that K Kailashnathan (Rtd IAS:1979:GJ), Modi’s go-getter officer in Gujarat, is being considered for a top assignment at centre. The then CM Narendra Modi had re-employed Kailashnathan (after his retirement in May 2013) as Chief Principal Secretary to CM. The officer (popularly known as KK) still continues with his top position in CM Anandiben’s regime.
After Modi’s Gujarat has summaried the grand success of global investors summits (VGIS 2015) the buzz has been gaining momentum that Delhi may be KK’s next destination.
People in position knowing Gujarat affairs well say that KK is a strong believer of ‘his master’s voice’ and may be assigned with some top job; in case he is brought at the centre. Probably the ongoing buzz that a top bureaucrat may be appointed as Governor would have emanated from the anticipated movement of KK.
