THE REASON

Because he is the most important bureaucrat in the Modi government. He has the Prime Minister’s ear on everything, from foreign policy and the challenges of terror to negotiations with the Naga rebels.

THE WORK

Following the public announcement of the surgical strikes in PoK last November, he is said to have controlled the flow of information and played a key role in shaping the narrative.

To quickly gauge the Trump administration and work on common areas so that New Delhi is able to tap into the new Washington.

NOTE: Still responds to every single soldierly salutation in his office with a loud and brisk “vishraam, araam se”.
