Alphons Kannanthanam, IAS: Profile, Politics and Family Details


Alphons Kannanthanam is the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Tourism and former IAS officer (1979 batch of Kerala Cadre). He is widely regarded as one of the best officers in the history of India. In New Delhi, he was nick named as the Demolition Man for his sheer determination to make Delhi free from encroachment and illegal settlement. Taking a look at numbers, while being the Chief of DDA, he had demolished around 15, 000 illegal buildings in Delhi.



He had joined BJP in 2011 when he was already an MLA (had won with the support of Left Front). Interestingly, he had joined the BJP when there was no fortune for the party in Centre as well as in Karala. He worked hard for the party in Kerala and had established himself the ideological face of the party, despite being a devout Christian.

BJP doesn’t have any MP from Kerala. The party is also in no mood of appointing a nominated Rajya Sabha MP as minister. In this vacuum, Modi couldn’t find a better match than Alphons Kannanthanam, the distinguished former IAS officer.



Alphons is also a pioneer of literacy movement in India in general and Kerala in particular. As the District Magistrate of Kattayam in 1989, he initiated an innovative project for literacy which resulted in 100% literacy rate for this district – first in India.

Sreeraj Chennupati (Kishan Modugumudi): Profile and Prostitution Racket Info

Sreeraj Chennupati or Kishan Modugumudi is a failed Telugu film producer who has shifted to the USA for better business opportunity. He is also an active member of American Telugu Association (ATA). The motive for shifting to the USA was noble – to earn money and that is not wrong. However, in the pursuit of more money, he started to do something sinister – to become the master of a sex racket.
While attending an ATA event, he came in contact with Chandrakala Purnima. She was making huge sum of money by sleeping around with rich Telugu NRIs. She was also arranging girls for them. Sriraj or Kishan fell for her. They got married within two months of seeing each other. The marriage was to create a bond of trust – for that prostitution business.

Yathish Chandra G H is widely regarded as one of the most efficient IFS officers in the contemporary times. He is an IPS officer of Kerala Cadre. People recognize him as a man who has the required guts and balls to take on the rampant political violence and hooliganism in Kerala. He had allegedly baton charged hundreds of Leftists on the road just one day before the visit of the PM in 2015. For that, he was severely criticized by LDF politicians. He was also widely supported for that act and many campaigns were launched on the social media where people were asking for more officers like Yatish Chandra in Kerala.
