Deepak Singhal removed from Chief Secretary post
Deepak Singhal has been removed from the post of Chief Secretary of Uttar Pradesh by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav. 
 
 
In place of him, Rahul Bhatnagar who is Principal Secretary of Finance has been appointed as new Chief Secretary.
 
 
According to several reports, Singhal had endeared himself to the Chief Minister; he invited his rage after he attended a dinner with Amar Singh in New Delhi on Saturday. 
 
 
Many believe that the development could trigger a storm of sorts as Singhal was considered close to PWD Minister Shivpal Singh Yadav and Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav.
