Pradeep said that his father, who is a farmer, inspired him to become an IAS officer and he wants to work for the welfare of the farming community.
He had studied till class 7th in a government school at his native Tewri village and later his family had shifted to Sonepat. He did his class 12 from Shambhu Dayal modern school, Sonepat in 2008 and graduation in Engineering from Murthal University, Sonepat in 2012.
Pradeep Singh said that it was very difficult for him to study and do a job at the same time.8“My few friends also helped me in cracking this exam. I have achieved this feat by doing self-study. At one time, I thought to stop preparing for IAS, but my father told me not to lose patience and do hard work. Self-motivation is the best key to achieve any goal. Do not listen to what others are saying, only an individual knows his/her potential”, he added.
“I had told Pradeep to make constant efforts to become an IAS and do not think about where I will bring money for his study. Today, he made every Haryana resident proud. He told me that UPSC has declared results and when I asked him about his result, he came close to me and said he had topped the exam by hugging me. I want to tell all farmers and laborers that their children have more appetite to become an IAS”, his father added.
