CM Yogi had directed the police authority of the state to change the working style in order to maintain the security of people.

They say-“Sulkhan Singh comes from a humble background and has rose to such top post in police because of his hard work and commitment.”



He starts his day with yoga and also some of his pictures in yoga session have gone viral on social media. His house is even more modest than his personality and the name plate at his house is the only thing that creates difference between his house and other semi-concrete houses of that area.

One has to cross farm machines, from the gate and tools and gunny bags that are packed with grain to come across the verandah. In the verandah, it becomes clear that farming is the main occupation of his family.



Sulkhan gained his initial education from the village school till class 8 and Secondary education from Tindwari School. From Adarsh Bajranj Inter College he completed his intermediate and civil engineering from Roorkee. In 1980, in the first attempt itself he cleared the civil services examination.

The new DGP beforehand, made his intentions very clear that he is quite serious about his work and those who violate laws should take it as warning. A Lucknow Police Officer said-“To clearly indicate people about his commitment towards his work, he told officers to take action against the people who would indulge in vigilantism in the of GAU-RAKSHA.”
