Rivalry of women officials catapults Chandra as law secretary



The recent appointment of Suresh Chandra as Union Law Secretary seems to be a fallout of the battle between two senior women officials of the Ministry. After reports started doing the rounds that a woman officer had emerged as the frontrunner for the post, another senior woman officer approached Law Minister D V Sadananda Gowda with a complaint against her. Not ready to take any chances, the government preferred to chose Chandra for the post. One of the two women is likely to be posted as Member-Secretary, Law Commission of India.
