Odisha-Born PK Mishra Assumes Charge as Principal Secretary to PM Modi

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2019-09-11

Odisha-born bureaucrat Pramod Kumar Mishra (PK Mishra) today assumed charge as the Principal Secretary to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

 

A 1972 batch IAS officer belonging to Gujarat cadre has served as secretary to the Union Ministry of Agriculture between December 1, 2006, and August 31, 2008, under Sharad Pawar. Mishra was credited with the implementation of the National Agriculture Development Programme and the National Food Security Mission.

 

Back in 2001 when Narendra Modi was first sent to Gujarat by his party to take charge of the state, PK Mishra was his top aide in the Chief Minister’s Office and stayed in this post for the next few years. In this role, senior officials recall that it was PK Mishra who had introduced Narendra Modi to the intricacies of the bureaucracy and government.

 

An alumnus of Delhi School of Economics, PK Mishra had specialised in development economics from the University of Sussex. He later also picked up his doctoral degree on the same topic.

 

Earlier, Nripendra Misra was serving as the Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister.

 

After the latest round of appointments at the PMO, Principal Secretary PK Mishra, National Security Adviser Ajit Doval and Principal Advisor to Prime Minister PK Sinha will form PM Modi’s core group at the PMO.
