Mayawati’s Three Musketeers

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati has been UP chief minister three times. And, during the three tenures, three IAS officers became her close aides. The trusted trinity-Netram, Shrikrishna and Kunwar Fateh Bahadur Singh-is once again ready to wait on her if she stages a comeback this time. When Mayawati lost power, they were exiled to Uttar Pradesh officialdom’s Siberia.

Netram, an amiable, low-profile officer, looked after matters relating to industrial development. Though promoted to Principal Secretary, he is now languishing as Member (Judicial) in the Board of Revenue. Shrikrishna suffered the worst setback-bereft of any posting for some time. He managed a six-month study leave abroad. Thereafter, he spent eight months in the personnel department without any work or designation. He is now Secretary (Sports), a post sans any political prestige. Fateh Bahadur was downgraded from the powerful position of secretary to CM to the ceremonial Secretary (Dharmathkarya).
