Bokaro: The way deputy commissioner, Rajesh Singh dealt with the Covid-19 situation, conducted assembly by-election peacefully, and now smoothly taking up corona vaccination drive along with day-to-day affairs is praiseworthy. His skills are now inspiring other physically challenged IAS and officers deployed in administrative posts in the country.
Knowing about DC’s Bokaro performance, a visually-challenged IAS officer of Bihar cadre, Sparsh Gupta has come to take a week-long training from Singh. He wants to learn the way Singh is handling administrative affairs, monitor development schemes, and addressing the grievances of needy people, etc. Gupta is presently posted as an additional collector in Begusarai district of Bihar. He is a native Bulandshahar district of Uttar Pradesh.
Gupta has cracked UPSC in the year 2019 achieving 562 rank and got Bihar cadre to serve. Gupta told that he faced many challenges in his life but with hard work and strong determination, he achieved the success. While serving as an officer in Begusarai, he came to know about Bokaro DC, Rajesh Singh, who is also visually impaired like him, but is performing exemplary well and heading Jharkhand’s one of the important districts.
So he contacted Singh and requested to train him so that he can also perform better. On Monday, Gupta accompanied DC Bokaro in the event organised on 11th National Voters Day at Ramrudra High School, Chas. Gupta said to mediapersons that there is complete no vision in his left eye and can see only a little with the right eye. He lost his vision due to glaucoma when he was a child. But he never gives up and struggled to achieve the objective of life.
He said, every person on this earth has some problem. But those who overcome and achieve their aim in life can only feel the taste of success. He also said that there are very few blind officers in the country. For them, Rajesh Singh is a role-model.
