What it means, Pant at the helm

The newly elected BJP government has 20 first time ministers including  chief minister Bhajan Lal Sharma. The government will need an officer like Sudhansh Pant to lead the bureaucracy and governance. His vision and skills will help Rajasthan to enter the next trajectory of growth. The central BJP gave a deep thought on appointing new chief secretary. It was expected that the new chief secretary will come from the centre as the chief minister Bhajan Lal Sharma is not an experienced  hand at governance.
