Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday appointed 21 members of the Delhi Legislature Assembly as parliamentary secretaries to ministers for “smooth functioning” of the government. Orders to this effect have been issued by the government.
The government has made it clear that the parliamentary secretaries will not be eligible to any remuneration or perks of any kind. This means there will be no additional burden on the exchequer. “However, they may use government transport for official purposes and office space in the minister’s office will be provided to them to facilitate their work,” the government stated.
Those appointed include Praveen Kumar as parliamentary secretary to the education minister, Sharad Kumar as parliamentary secretary to minister of revenue, Adarsh Shastri as parliamentary secretary to minister of information & technology, Madan Lal as parliamentary secretary to minister of vigilance and Shiv Charan Goel as parliamentary secretary to minister of finance.
Sanjeev Jha has been appointed parliamentary secretary to minister of transport, Sarita Singh as parliamentary secretary to minister of employment, Naresh Yadav as parliamentary secretary to minister of labour and Jarnail Singh (Tilak Nagar) as parliamentary secretary to minister of development, among others.
