Port Blair, May 25: The State President, Shri Rakeshwar Lall and member of Hindu Rashtra Shakti have expressed gratitude to Mr. Jitendra Narain, IAS, Chief Secretary, A& N Administration for proving time and again to be an upright officer who would stand out and go beyond the line of duty to ensure transparent action.

Mr Narain took actions on high-profile cases of corruption when it was an unsaid practice for other officers to let them be as they are. He came in the limelight for the first time when he boldly carried out raids in Chandra Swami's Ashrams during the latter's heydays under the premiership of PV Narsimha Rao. Recently, HRS had requested the Chief Secretary about illegal electric connection in IMFC & removal of encroached area of Govt. Bus Stop, near Hanuman Temple, to which a prompt action was initiated.
