“Reward for honesty is humiliation” says IAS Khemka

(Last Updated On: 29/11/2019)


Well known IAS officer Ashok Khemka, who has been transferred more than 50 times in his career has reacted strongly to his latest posting, saying the “reward for honesty is a humiliation”.

It is his 53rd transfer in 27-year-long career.Haryana government on Wednesday issued transfer order to 14 IAS officers, including Khemka. “Phir tabadla (transferred again),” the 1991-batch officer tweeted.
“Same thing again. Constitution Day was celebrated yesterday. Today, the orders and rules of the Supreme Court were violated yet again. Some will be pleased,” the tweet in Hindi added.

The official was posted as Principal Secretary in Haryana’s Science and Technology Department only in March. His next assignment is Principal Secretary, Archives, Archaeology and Museums Department, according to an official statement.

This was the first major administrative reshuffle ordered by the Bharatiya Janata Party–Jannayak Janta Party government after it came to power about a month ago. The transfers are with immediate effect.

Khemka shot into limelight in 2012 when he cancelled the mutation of a land deal between Skylight Hospitality, which is linked to Congress leader Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra, and major real estate developer DLF.
Over four years ago, Khemka had termed another transfer “painful”. He had then been moved from the state’s transport department.

“Tried hard to address corruption and bring reforms in Transport despite severe limitations and entrenched interests. Moment is truly painful,” he had then tweeted.

Khemka’s tweet was retweeted many times with people expressing solidarity with the 1991-batch IAS officer. A twitter user commended Khemka for his honesty and asked him not lose heart, for he will emerge winner despite odds. Another one commented, “it is not 53rd transfer, but 53rd badge of honour for you”.
