Min Atishi gets another portfolio

Friday, 02 June 2023 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

The Delhi government on Thursday allotted Cabinet Minister Atishi another portfolio of the Public Relations department — which was previously held by Kailash Gahlot. There is no change in any portfolios of the  ministers of Delhi government.

Atishi is currently holding nine departments Women and Child Development,  Public Works Department, Power, Education, Art, Culture and Language, Tourism,  Higher Education, Training and Technical Education and Public Relations department.

“In exercise of power conferred under Rule 3 of the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Allocation of Business) Rules 1993, the Lieutenant Governor in consultation with the Chief Minister is pleased to allocate the portfolio of Public Relations Department to Atishi Marlena, in addition to the portfolios she is presently holding,” read a notification issued by the General Administrative Department (GAD).

It is learnt that the PR department has been given to Atishi to improve the government image. 

Atishi and Saurabh Bharadwaj were inducted into the Delhi government in March this year following the resignations of former Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia and minister Satyendar Jain —both currently in Tihar jail in alleged corruption and money laundering cases, respectively.
