Ashok Khemka, the senior IAS officer, who has been transferred more than 46 times in 24 years, has once again been transferred by the Haryana Government on Sunday.
He will now serve as the Principal Secretary in Youth Affairs and Sports department in Haryana Government. He was moved from his post of principal secretary in the social justice and empowerment department.
Khemka has reportedly been transferred by state governments after he exposed corruption in the departments he was posted in.
Following the transfer, Khemka took to Twitter mentioning "vested interest".
So much work planned. News of another transfer. Crash landing again. Vested interests win. Déjà vu. But this is temporary.— Ashok Khemka (@AshokKhemka_IAS) November 12, 2017
Will continue with renewed vigour and energy.
The senior bureacrat had reportedly cancelled a land deal between Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, and realty developer DLF in 2012.
Khemka, who was then served in Haryana revenue department, had also unearthed alleged illegal deals between Vadra and DLF.(ANI)
