Patna: Rural Development Department Minister Nitish Mishra has been given additional charge of the Social Welfare Department following resignation of Parveen Amanullah.

DY Patil has been given additional charge of the Social Welfare Department with immediate effect, Principal Secretary (Cabinet Secretariat) Brajesh Mehrotra said in a notification last night.
The Governor had late last evening accepted Parveen Amanullah`s resignation letter after the same was forwarded to him for acceptance by the Chief Minister.
Amanullah, daughter of the former diplomat and Babri Mosque Action Committee member Syed Shahabuddin and wife of retired IAS official Afzal Amanullah, had resigned from the Nitish Kumar government two days ago protesting alleged corruption and lack of transparency in the government.
