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).

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.

Yathish Chandra, IPS: Profile, Wiki, Age, Wife and Family

Yathish Chandra G H is widely regarded as one of the most efficient police 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.
