    Former finance secretary Subhash Chandra Garg has blamed a messy stint with finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman for his abrupt exit in June last year. In a blog post, Garg claimed Sitharaman had insisted on his transfer from the north block, a month after she took over as the finance minister. "She has a very different personality, skill-set and approach for economic policy issues and also for the officers working with her. It became apparent very early that working with her was going to be quite difficult," Garg, a Rajasthan cadre officer of the 1983 IAS batch, wrote in his post.
