In a cabinet reshuffle, the Delhi government on Thursday allotted cabinet minister Atishi another portfolio of Public Relations department – which was previously held by Kailash Gahlot.

“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 Ms Atishi Marlena, in addition to the portfolios she is presently holding,” read a notice accessed by news agency ANI.

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.
