Chandigarh, July 22

A day after Suresh Kumar, Chief Principal Secretary (CPS) to the Chief Minister, returned his official vehicles and relieved his personal staff, fuelling speculation that he did not want to continue in the government, he met Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh at his farmhouse today.

'He's Done With Cong'

  • The SAD on Wednesday said it seemed that the Chief Principal Secretary was fed up with the Congress government and adamant on resigning.
  • Senior leader and MP Balwinder Singh Bhunder said Suresh Kumar had tried to quit twice earlier as he felt that the government had "failed on all fronts", but the CM persuaded him to stay.

Though Kumar remained incommunicado for the second consecutive day, Secretary-cum-OSD to Chief Minister MP Singh is learnt to have met the CPS, before the meeting between Capt Amarinder and Kumar took place.

Earlier in the day, emissaries of the Chief Minister got in touch with Kumar. Sources in the government said after the appointment of new Chief Secretary Vini Mahajan, certain issues regarding the handling of files routed through the CPS had cropped up. "With the CM's intervention, clarity on the subject will emerge by tomorrow," said a government functionary.

Though none of the ministers raked up the issue in the Cabinet meeting today, some party MLAs approached the CPS and supported him.
