Atishi, Saurabh Bharadwaj Recommended By Delhi CM For Cabinet


New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal recommended the names of AAP MLAs Atishi Marlena and Saurabh Bharadwaj to President Droupadi Murmu for appointments as ministers in the Cabinet, with effect from the date they are sworn in, stated the Ministry of Home Affairs.
Kejriwal had forwarded the names to the Lieutenant Governor for their appointment to the Cabinet. The development came after the resignation of AAP ministers Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain.

Saurabh Bhardwaj, who is also the party’s national spokesperson, had served the Delhi Jal Board as its vice chairman. The legislator from Greater Kailash was also a minister during the first stint of the AAP government.

Atishi Marlena, who represents the Kalkaji constituency, has been a key member of Sisodia’s education team. She had also contested the 2019 Lok Sabha polls from the East Delhi constituency and lost to BJP’s Gautam Gambhir.
Till Atishi and Bhardwaj are inducted into the cabinet, ministers Raaj Kumar Anand and Kailash Gahlot will take care of the portfolios that have fallen vacant following Sisodia’s resignation.
While Gahlot has been given the additional charge of finance, PWD along with some departments, Anand, who is also the social welfare minister, will take care of education, health and other departments.
