Lucknow, 30 August 2022: Shri Awanish Kumar Awasthi, IAS ( 1987 UP) most powerful officer during present Yogi Government, who hold many key positions and responsibility such as Addl. Chief Secretary Home, Confidential, Visa Passport, Jail Administration & Reform and Vigilance Deptt., Religious Affairs, CEO, UPEIDA & UPSA, DG Jail and Energy/Additional Energy. He retirement is due on 31 August 2022 but as per information from our reliable sources, he will continue to hold key position and responsibility beyond 31 August.
Although Central Govt. denied his extension earlier but CM Yogi Adityanath is strongly stood behind to retain him till coming General Election 2024. In fact RSS top leadership too is convinced with CM Yogi for making BJP’s Mission 2024 successful in UP and there is all probability that he will get extension of one year and further extension time to time till 2024.
