In an unexpected turn, the Personnel Department made a departmental error, appointing the individual intended for the role of social media advisor to the Chief Minister as the media advisor instead.
Amid the presentation of the first budget by the Bhajan Lal government in the state, the Personnel Department’s orders stirred controversy. The Chief Minister’s advisor, initially designated for the position of social media advisor, was inadvertently named as the media advisor. A corrected order had to be issued four hours later, officially appointing Dhanraj Solanki as the social media advisor to the Chief Minister.
The role of media advisor to Chief Minister Bhajan Lal Sharma remains vacant, with ongoing speculation about potential appointees. Despite the confusion in the orders, Anand Sharma continues to handle all responsibilities as the media advisor for the Bhajan Lal government.
Recognizing the mistake, the Personnel Department promptly corrected the order, and the amended version was issued. Anand Sharma, currently holding the position, oversees media-related tasks, event planning, and communication strategies for the regional NW department and government initiatives. Congratulations ensued following the issuance of the corrected order appointing Dhanraj Solanki, who is actively involved in the BJP IT department.
