Durga Shakti Nagpal: Profile, Husband and Family

Durga Shakti Nagpal is the epitome of woman power of India. It is rare that you will find a person justifying his/her name so closely. She is an IAS officer of Uttar Pradesh Cadre. She was in limelight in 2013 when she had launched a massive administrative action against rampant corruption and illegal sand mining in Gautam Buddh Nagar – NOIDA. Her action had created a sort of terror among corrupt politicians of Uttar Pradesh and hence the Government had suspended him for demolishing the outer wall of an illegal mosque. There was no doubt in anyone’s mind that the suspension was on flimsy ground and the real motive was the undo the damage done by her to the corrupt system. After a huge public uproar, the Government had to revoke her suspension few months later.

Profile of Durga Shakti Nagpal

Durga was born on 25th June, 1985 in Agra, Uttar Pradesh. Her family is basically from Raipur, Chhatisgarh. Her father was a government servant and has won many medals from Rajasthan and Delhi Government for distinguished services. Her grandfather was a police officer who was killed on duty in 1954 in Delhi. Honesty and dedication to the assigned job runs into her blood.

Durga has been a brilliant student from schooling days. After completing schooling education, she prepared for IIT JEE entrance examination, but couldn’t crack it. She joined Indira Gandhi Technological University in Delhi and completed B. Tech with Computer Science in 2007. She got a job offer from an IT Consultancy company, but decided to stay back in Delhi and prepare for Civil Services. She appeared in the UPSC Civil Services in 2008 and cracked it. Unfortunately, because of low rank she could get IRS, her third preference of services. She again appeared in the next year and cracked UPSC Civil Services with All India Rank of 20. She easily got IAS and was allotted Punjab Cadre.

Her first posting was in Mohali on probation – a part of IAS training. During this phase also, Durga had shown courage and unearthed a huge land scam. She was here for fourteen months and people still remember her for some of the life changing actions she took.

She married Abhishek Singh, an IAS officer of UP cadre, and requested for change in the cadre owing to marriage. The Government allows and hence she was given UP cadre. In her second posting as an SDM at Gautam Buddh Nagar she showed the world what an Indian woman can do.

Husband of Durga Shakti Nagpal

As mentioned above, Durga is married to Abhishek Singh who is also an IAS officer. Abhishek and Durga met while preparing for Civil Services in Delhi. Abhishek took three more years to crack Civil Services. They got married after Abhishek completed his IAS training.

It should be noted that Akhilesh Yadav Government had also targeted Abhishek Singh to teach Durga a lesson. He was also suspended on a flimsy ground where he was accused of inhuman treatment to a dalit teacher. The government could never say publicly about the inhuman treatment. In fact, entire drama was scripted to convey a message to Durga that she should remain under the limit imposed by the corrupt political and business system of Uttar Pradesh.

Current Posting of Durga Shakti Nagpal

Durga is currently working as an Officer on Special Duty in the Union Agriculture Ministry. The Ministry led by BJP leader Radha Mohan Singh decided to relax some rules to let her work on this crucial assignment. She has been appointed in the Union Agriculture Ministry in January. 2015, and since then she is working there. She may go to her parent cadre, Uttar Pradesh, if Samajwadi Party loses the next Assembly Election.

Mukhar Abbas Naqvi and Ashok Singhal Relationship

Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi is Minister of State for Minority Affairs to the Government of India. He is a prominent BJP politician and widely regarded as the Muslim face of the party. However, the dirty IT departments of Congress and AAP are sharing news over the social media about relationship between Naqvi and late Ashok Singhal. They are saying that Naqvi is the Son-in-Law of Ashok Singhal.

That being the Son-in-Law of a powerful VHP leader may not be a problem. But, through this fact they want to say that Naqvi is associated with the BJP because of his marital relationship, not because of his ideology of nationalism and belief in the Idea of India.

Is Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi Son-in-Law of Ashok Singhal?
The short answer to this question is NO. There is no relationship between Naqvi and late Ashok Singhvi.

As a matter of fact, Ashok Singhal remained unmarried till his last breath. While pursuing Engineering from the prestigious BHU, he came in contact with the RSS. He became a pracharak and took …

Nishant, Son of Nitish Kumar: Profile

Nitish Kumar is currently making constant appearances in the national media. It is because of the upcoming Assembly election where he is directly challenging Narendra Modi. This is not the first time when he has challenged Modi. His previous attempt was a dismal failure during the last Lok Sabha election. However, this time the situation is little bit different. He has allied with Lalu Prasad Yadav and Congress party and hoping to stop the Modi juggernaut.

This article is about the son of Nitish Kumar.

Nitish Kumar is a widower, as you might know. He has only one son named Nishant Kumar, a media shy married man who is an alumnus of the prestigious BIT Mesra.

Profile of Nishant Kumar

It is quite surprising that the son of Nitish Kumar isn’t covered by the media. You will hardly find any news item related to him. Unlike other regional politicians like Lalu Yadav and Mulayam Singh Yadav, Nitish’ son has least interest in the politics, at least as of now.

It is quite surprising, indeed. The ma…
