Sahai succeeded senior IAS officer Dharam Pal, who was removed as Home Secretary in June 2015 by the AAP government.
SahaI is the Finance Secretary of Delhi and had played crucial role in preparing budget for Delhi government.
Dharam Pal was removed by the AAP government after he signed a notification appointing Joint Commissioner of Delhi Police M K Meena as new chief of Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) following LG Najeeb Jung's order.
Jung on 8 June appointed Meena superseding Kejriwal's hand-picked chief S S Yadav. Consequently, the AAP government challenged the appointment in Delhi High Court.
