SOME OFF THE RECORD information about “Mr. Foreigner” Secretary (IAS) in Mantralaya..
1. This “Mr. Foreigner” Secretary in Mantralaya is son-in-law to an Ex
Chief Secretary. When the FIL (father-in-law) was the CS, SIL
(son-in-law obviously the foreigner) often mistook FIL’s position to his
own, and harassed a lot of his colleagues that time.
2. But good
things/times had to end. FIL retired. “Mr. Foreigner” Secretary was
left at the mercy of those harassed other IAS officers who always kept him at bay often giving “non performing” departments. Frustration grew like weed!
2. Now comes Devendra Fadnavis
government. This “Mr. Foreigner” Secretary gets plum assignment, you
can say the position of a top boss in IAS cadre of Maharashtra. He
remembers faces of all those who sidelined him. 1st victim Manukumar
Shrivastava. Apparently Manukumar had rejected a file of FIL in Urban
Development Department in those days. Manu gets “demoted”. There are 8
others who have been victimized by this “Mr. Foreigner” Secretary . But
who dares to raise the voice?
3. Now people please find out who some
Lalit Fopley is? Heard he is involved in a lot of financial
transactions of FIL and SIL . Apna Ex “Good looking & dead” CM’s one
of the son also consults him for “transactions”.
4. Apparently “Mr.
Foreigner” Secretary now sits in his office and calls officers who are
8 to 10 batches senior to him by names and addresses the way only CM
can. Latest example was of an IPS officer who was called to Nagpur in
December after a call from “Mr. Foreigner” Secretary at 10 p.m with a
particular file. This IPS officer reached Nagpur with the file.”Mr.
Foreigner” Secretary gave it back to him and said , “It’s OK work is
done, you may go to Mumbai again”…Such is the harassment. Remember
senior-most IPS officer had complained about in-subordination of police
officers to the CM? Who instigated it?? Apna “Mr. Foreigner” Secretary
…CM had to clarify this issue in the Nagpur Assembly.
5. When a
leading “guide” manufacturing company had put tender to serve the tribal
people with notebooks et all, “Mr. Foreigner” Secretary rejected the
file directly. At least this one “guide” company was one of the saving
grace in the otherwise tainted Tribal Welfare department where foreigner
was a Secretary for a few months. Ghor Annyay…
6. Last heard
Father in Law of the Foreigner is now a consultant to many departments
in Mantralaya even after retiring 10 years ago…thanks to the SIL.
