By the Way

Janus-faced Tripathi

Keeping both the bureaucratic and political bosses happy is a tightroping feat but Praveen Kumar Tripathi, Principal Secretary to the Delhi Chief Minister, is doing it none too badly. Tripathi, a 1977 batch IAS officer of Union Territory cadre, was brought to this post by S. Raghunathan just before the latter retired as Chief Secretary, Delhi. And Raghunathan also helped to induct his successor, Ramesh
Narayanswamy.

Now, while Chief Minister Sheila Dixit considers Tripathi extremely trustworthy, so does Narayanswamy. And staffers in the Chief Minister’s secretariat are at their wits’ end, trying to figure out whose man Tripathi is. Meanwhile, he is a winner all the way, feared alike by the followers of both Dixit and Narayanswamy. But how long he will keep up this balancing act is a matter of conjecture.
