BHUBANESWAR: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s Private Secretary VK Pandian was on Monday given additional charge as Secretary to the CM’s Transformation and Initiatives (5Ts). A 2000 Batch IAS officer, Pandian has been serving as the Private Secretary to the CM since May 2011.

Pandian will continue to serve as the Private Secretary to the CM. The 5Ts initiatives of the CM are Transparency, Teamwork, Technology, Time and Transformation. The action plan under 5Ts includes a number of new initiatives including creation of a ‘Mo College’ platform in line with the State Government’s ‘Mo School’ campaign to allow alumni and other interested individuals to contribute to the development of colleges.
