‘Indianmandarins’ has reliably learnt that Bhagwant Singh Bishnoi (IFS:1983) may succeed Harsh V Sringla (IFS:1984) as Indian Ambassador to Thailand. Sringla is being moved from Thailand to Bangladesh as High Commissioner.
Presently, Bishnoi is posted in New York as Deputy Permanent Representative (DPR) to United Nations (UN), and is, therefore, a fit candidate to replace Sringla as ambassador. Prior to posting in New York in November 2013, Bishnoi had served in Thailand as Deputy Chief of Mission in Bangkok between 2009-2013. He had also served as Ambassador in Ehiopia and the African Union. His career profile also include Madrid, Manila and Pretoria where he served in different capacities.
