Suhas is a man of steel. He has overcome many challenges to become what he is. As a director, he is known for his honesty and integrity. He has shown a keen presence of mind when making quick decisions. Some of his greatest achievements are managing the Covid-19 pandemic in NOIDA. He was also Prayagraj’s DM during the last Kumbh Mela which happens to be a big responsibility.
Suhas has served Prayagraj and Azamgarh as a district magistrate.
Recently Yogi Adityanath appointed him as the DM of NOIDA. The Chief Minister was deeply disappointed by the performance of the incumbent DM, Mr BN Singh, in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. The contract tracing by the administration left much to be desired.
