Mystery man BaldevBeri

img-june14-33Is the Haryana Government facing a human resource crunch? If not, then why are many officers in the Chief Minister’s secretariat being given extensions? Either Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda does not know how to run the administration or he is under unknown pressures to keep certain people in posts. If not, why has Hooda given an extension to his Officer on Special Duty, Baldev Raj Beri, even after retirement? Why is Beri so important to Hooda? Beri, who hails from Kanher village, is part of every ruling system in the state. He is a simple administrative officer but managed to get inducted in the Haryana Civil Services. He was first associated with BhajanLal’s Principal Secretary, LM Mehta. He was looking after the allotment of the plots in different sectors at that time. He is still doing the same job of land allotment. There are unaccountable allegations against him regarding residential as well as industrial plots allotment to his relatives and wife at Panchkula and Gurgaon. He retired three years ago but has managed to get an extension every year. Other senior officers are perturbed as several requests to Hooda for his removal have yielded no results.
