Who will be the next top babu of Madhya Pradesh?

The Chief Secretary, who is the top public servant or the head of all government employees, holds an important post in the administration. Speculations are rife as to who would take over after Rakesh Sahni's retirement.

Names of Sumit Bose and Alka Sirohi were making the rounds. Bose is not too keen on returning to the state. Sirohi is not very popular but her meeting with Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has suggested that she is a strong contender.

Prashant Meha should have been ahead in the race as he is neither arrogant, nor impractical. But there is a lobby against him. There are other contenders inlcluding Ranjana Chaudhary, Avani Vaishya, Satya Prakash and OP Rawat.

As per seniority, Sandeep Khanna and SC Wardhan should have been among the contenders. They are due for retirement in coming months. In the coming days, the picture would be clear whether MP will have another woman appointed at the post of Chief Secretary.
