Putting all suspense to an end, Kuniyil Kailashnathan (Rtd IAS:1979:GJ) has been given another extension as Chief Principal Secretary to the Gujarat Chief Minister. Earlier the speculation was doing the rounds that KK might not get further chance to be back at the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO).
KK had retired in May 2013 but the then chief minister Narendra Modi appointed him again by creating a new post of Chief PS to the CM. Even after Narendra Modi paved the way for Anandiben Patel as CM, KK continued to hold this post in the CMO. Now, the seasoned bureaucrat will continue to serve his term under Chief Minister Vijay Rupani too.
