Rohtak lad felicitated

Rohtak: The India Book of Records has felicitated a local lad, Rahul Sharma, with an appreciation certificate and a gold medal for making a magazine resume consisting of 21 pages using Microsoft. He has shared his skills, hobbies, education, experience, inspiration and role model in his resume by using various photographs in an attractive manner. Rahul used to work at a Noida-based multinational company and lost his job during the Covid-induced lockdown. “I got inspiration from Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, who made a statement about converting a crisis into an opportunity. I used my creativity skills and prepared the magazine resume, which helped me get another job,” he said. The CM has congratulated Rahul for his feat through his Twitter handle. Former Minister Manish Grover also honoured him.

Official’s transfer raises eyebrows

Faridabad: The transfer of the Faridabad Municipal Corporation (MC) chief engineer within days of joining the duty has raised a few eyebrows. Birender Kardam, who had joined here as the chief engineer on November 18, was relieved from the post as per an order issued by the office of Additional Chief Secretary, Urban Local Bodies Department, on Sunday. While this has taken the official circles of the MC by surprise, the authorities have ordered to give the charge again to Thakur Lal Sharma, who was transferred from this post on November 16. Sharma who was posted as the chief engineer of the Sonepat MC has now been given the additional charge of Faridabad. “This action has not only put a question mark over the purpose of the transfer in such a manner, but will certainly affect the working of the Faridabad MC,” says Yogesh Dhingra, a former municipal corporator.
