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.

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 may go to her parent cadre, Uttar Pradesh, if Samajwadi Party loses the next Assembly Election.

D. K. Shivakumar: Profile, Wiki, Daughter, Wife and Net Asset

D. K. Shivakumar is one of the most powerful politicians of Karnataka. For Congress, he is even more important than that of Siddharamaiah. For BJP, he is the biggest threat. The Congress High Command has deep trust for him. He is the man who has got muscle and money power. Shivakumar can be termed as the ‘deep state’ of Karnataka. Any big deals can’t happen in the state without his approval. A series of IT raids couldn’t do any harm to him.

D. K. Shivakumar has filed the nomination paper for 2018 Assembly Election. In the affidavit, he has called himself a social worker while his wife was termed as a homemaker. But, this social worker has amassed properties worth Rs. 730 Crores (including that of his wife).
The energy minister of Karnataka has got richer by around Rs. 500 crores within 5 years. Needless to say, this is all white money. Now, you can only estimate his real fortune.

Shobha Karandlaje: Profile, Husband, Age, Caste and Boyfriend

She is also known for having strong Hindutva views in political as well as social life.

Shobha came into the limelight when BSY made her a minister in the first ever BJP government in a Southern state. In just two years, she started to have strong influence on the government. Reddy brothers and other senior BJP leaders had revolted. In the end, BSY had to ask her to resign.

Shobha is also said to be in a relationship with BSY. An old ally of Yeddyurappa even claimed that she is married to BSY. However, there is no credible information available on this issue. At best they can be termed as couple having consensual relationship (which is not wrong).
