A warm send-off was accorded to the outgoing Chief Secretary of Punjab, Mr Rajan Kashyap, at a function organised at Sutlej Club last evening. Mr Kashyap, who relinquishes the office on July 31, was felicitated for his credible contribution in different spheres, especially in the field of sports and that too lawn tennis.

Mr Kashyap heads the Chandigarh Lawn Tennis Association. His most valuable contribution has been the lawn tennis stadium in Sector 10, Chandigarh, where a number of international matches have been conducted.

The function was organised by Mr Rajinder Mahajan and Mr Anil Bharti, president and senior vice-president, respectively, of the Ludhiana District Cricket Association (LDCA) in association with some sports lovers and sports organisations which was attended by civil and judicial officials along with prominent industrialists of the city.

Speakers lauded Mr Kashyap's contribution to the nation in general and Punjab state in particular. Mr Inderjit Singh Bindra said that Mr Kashyap's retirement would be a great loss to the government but gain to the sports fraternity.

Dr Kirpal Singh Aulakh, Vice-Chancellor, Punjab Agricultural University, Mr H.K. Mittal, Commissioner, Central Excise, also praised Mr Kashyap for his outstanding tenure.

Mr Bindra, on behalf of the sports lovers of Ludhiana, presented a shawl and a memento to Mr Rajan Kashyap, while Ms Meena Kashyap and Ms Deepika Kashyap were felicitated by Ms Anita Mahajan and Ms Leena Bharti, respectively.
