Debt-ridden, yet prosperous

Are you looking for a public relations manager for your firm, ministry or company? There is an official in Delhi, who works in a Gujarat-based public sector undertaking and is omnipresent in Delhi’s elite clubs. The PSU has a full-fledged office with a guest house in the capital. gfiles has a list of the who’s who of Delhi who have been beneficiaries of the official’s benevolence. In case you need medical help, his wife is a doctor at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). He has earlier worked with the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC). He was very busy when NarendraModi took over as Prime Minister as his PSU’s cars and guest house were full of guests from Gujarat. His public relations activities are mind-boggling. One is surprised to see his clout—approximately 300 top-ranking personages (gfiles has a list) get his wishes via sms on their birthdays, marriage anniversaries, Holi and Deepavali. Though the PSU in which he works is debt-ridden, with his convincing skills, he managed to get a sanction of around `10 lakh to distribute gifts in Delhi from the CMD’s office, to keep the decision-makers happy. Why a debt-ridden PSU should distribute `10 lakh worth of gifts in Delhi is worth probing. Will Prime Minister Modi act and save the Gujarat PSU from the skills of a wonderful PR official?
