Contrary to such reports, it is found that Das had requested the State Chief Secretary on October 5 to relieve her from the responsibility of Additional Chief Secretary, Irrigation.
In her letter to the Chief Secretary, Das said, �I would like to inform you that I have been facing some constraints and problems in working harmoniously with the Irrigation Minister, possibly, the problem is mutual.
