Anil Baijal has succeeded Najeeb Jung as the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi and NCR.

At 11 am, Baijal walked in with the CM and Delhi high court chief justice G Rohini, who administered the oath of office and secrecy.

A 1969-batch India Administrative Service officer of the Union Territories cadre, Baijal was removed as union home secretary when the UPA government assumed power in May 2004, media reported. I don't know how the relationship will improve.

"I am very hopeful that in the future, we all - MLAs, Delhi Government, people of Delhi - will work with the L-G for overall development of Delhi". In September, Jung set up a committee to review over 400 files related to decisions taken by the Delhi government.

Attorney Jay Richardson said prosecutors have a list of about 38 potential witnesses to discuss the impact on victims in the case. On Wednesday, Roof told federal judge Richard Gergel that he would not be offering any witnesses or evidence in his defense.

Presently, Baijal is associated with the Vivekananda International Foundation. Delhi is a huge megapolis with problems like infrastructure, women's safety, law and order and pollution. In the last few months, a lot of work was stalled.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, National Security Adviser Ajit Doval, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and New Delhi MP Meenakshi Lekhi attended the oath-taking ceremony.

Baijal's family including his daughter and son, now living at their Greater Kailash residence would shift to Raj Niwas with him.

Earlier, President Pranab Mukherjee had appointed Anil Baijal as the next Lieutenent Governor of Delhi following sudden resignation of Najeeb Jung.
