Lt Gen Tajinder Singh Shergill (retd), a war veteran and close associate of Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, is set to be appointed as senior adviser in the office of the Punjab Chief Minister, signaling the start of process by the CM to make political appointments.

A former chairman of Punjab Public Service Commission during the previous Capt Amarinder Singh government, Lt Gen Shergill has been closely associated in the election campaign of Amarinder. He has also co-authored a book ‘The Monsoon War” with Capt Amarinder Singh.

Sources in the government said though the CM has given formal approval to the first political appointment, the formal orders are expected in a day or two.
