Maharashtra’s 1st woman Election Commissioner Neela Satyanarayana succumbs to COVID

Mumbai: Multi-faceted personality and retired IAS officer Neela Satyanarayana – who created history as the first woman State Election Commissioner succumbed to Covid-19 at a hospital, official sources said here on Thursday.

An IAS officer of the 1972 batch, Satyanarayana, 71, held many important posts in the state government and finally crowned her 42-years of bureaucratic service with the post-SEC.

Popular as “a people-friendly IAS officer”, she was reputed for her fearless approach, never bending before the political class vis-a-vis public interest during the course of duties across several departments in the state government.

Besides, Neela Satyanarayana made a mark as a prolific writer, poet, lyricist, singer, composer and music director who had composed songs for scores of Marathi films and a couple of Bollywood movies. She had been admitted to a suburban government hospital a few days ago for Corona treatment and breathed her last early today, shocking state political circles.
