Angrez Singh Rana: News

Angrez Singh Rana is a Kashmir Administrative Service member and was posted as a District Development Officer in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kishtwar district. Kishtwar has been caught in the web of nepotism and corruption for quite some time. After Rana took over as the district development officer, Kishtwar saw a lot of progress and development. Rana, who belongs to a middle-class family, had removed illegal shops in the district that were run by miscreants and corrupt mafia. He had helped a family by arranging a chopper for a child in order to shift him to Jammu so that he could receive better treatment. In 2018, Panchayat elections were smoothly conducted under his guidance and leadership. Before the 2019 Parliamentary elections, Rana conducted several awareness campaigns through live demos, SVEEP express, nukkad natak, and rallies. However, in 2020, Rana was transferred and posted as the Chairman of the Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board. He replaced Bashir Ahmad Dar, who was appointed as the new Deputy Commissioner of Anantnag. Angrez Singh was succeeded by Rajendra Singh Rana as the new Deputy Commissioner of Kishtwar.
