Arvind Kejriwal blasts at Hooda Govt on official’s transfer

Social activist and India Against Corruption [IAC] leader Arvind Kejriwal objecting the the transfer of a senior Haryana IAS officer saying that he was transferred because he ordered a probe against the allegedly involvement of Rober Varda and DLF.

Ashok Khemka, a 1991-batch officer, appointed as the Director-General of Land Consolidation and Land Records-cum-Inspector General of Registration in Haryana, was today transferred just three months after he joined.

Ashok Khemka had ordered the probe on land deals cases in Gurgaon, Faridabad, Palwal and Mewat since 2005.

Talking to media, Kejriwal said, “Haryana Chief Minister ought to answer to the country why has Khemka been transferred. What is transfer policy for IAS officers in Haryana? Under that policy, can officer be transferred merely because he was investigating Vadra?”

He said, “Ashok Khemka transferred by Haryana Govt because he was probing Vadra’s land deals in Haryana. We strongly criticize that.”

On the other hand, Ashok Khemka had written a letter to Haryana Chief Secretary in which he complaint about his transfer.

Further, Khemka said, “If these problems are brought in sunshine, probably my decisions would appear to be normal and correct. But what happens is, inside, you are guided and directed to behave differently.”

He said, “If you do take an action which you call strong but I would call as correct, and then action is taken against you, it’s very demoralising, dehumanising and you feel ashamed of yourself that look, there must be something wrong with you that these things are happening.”

“You get words like ‘you don’t get along well with others, ‘there are shades of grey in life’ etc. These kinds of euphemism are created to deviate you from the correct path,” Khemka said.

The state chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda told media that Chief Secretary will look into the matter. He said, “As far as the Haryana government is concerned, we have not made out undue favour to anybody.”
