Former Union Home Secretary Anil Baijal on Friday took oath as the new Lieutenant Governor of the national capital. Delhi High Court Chief Justice G Rohini administered the oath of office and secrecy to Baijal. 

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

Anil Baijal, a 1969-batch IAS officer of the Union Territories cadre, had served as Union Home Secretary under the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government besides holding key positions in other ministries.

70-year-old Baijal had retired from service in 2006 as Secretary, Urban Development Ministry. 

He had also served as the vice chairman of Delhi Development Authority.

Najeeb Jung had submitted his resignation on December 22, ending a nearly three-and-half-year-long eventful tenure, mostly marked by bitter confrontation with Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP government in Delhi.
