Hyderabad: Former bureaucrat B N Yugandhar, father of Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, died here on Friday. He was 82.

Yugandhar had served in the Prime Minister’s Office during late P V Narasimha Rao’s regime and also as director of the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration at Mussorie.

He died this afternoon, sources close to him said.

Condoling Yugandhar’s death, Telangana Chief Secretary S K Joshi told PTI that “He (Yugandhar) was the doyen of IAS officers and a jewel in the crown of civil services officers.”

Recalling his association with Yugandhar, former union home secretary K Padmanabhaiah said, “He (Yugandhar) was a committed and brilliant officer. He used to inspire young IAS officers. He had Left-oriented ideas… It is a loss for all of us.”

President of Telangana IAS officers Association B P Acharya condoled the death of the illustrious civil servant.
“He (Yugandhar) is a role model for the young officers to emulate in terms of his contributions to the field of rural development. May his ‘atma’ (soul) attain ‘sadgati’ (salvation), he said in a statement.

Condoling the death of Yugandhar, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao said the departed soul was a sincere officer known for simplicity.
