If some top sources in Haryana Govt are to be believed Ashok Khemka (IAS:HY:1991) is heading towards 47th transfer within 15 days after his 46th transfer was effected on April 01.
Khemka was abruptly moved from from the post of Transport Commissioner to a relatively non-descript department Archaeology & Museums Department as Secretary & DG.
Khattar Government’s move had then amazed many inside bureaucracy as M L Khattar was known to have had soft corner for all time troubled Khemka during Hooda Government. Not only his Health Minister Anil Vij had been furious with the move but also CM, Khattar had faced tough questions from media persons during BJP’s National Executive meeting in Bengaluru.
Three factors seemed to have be working favourably for Khemka; one, Khemka met not only to the Governor Kaptan Singh Solanki but also raised his humble voice to Chief Secretary D S Dhesi and further Chief Minister Khattar and thirdly Khemka has numerous silent sympathisers in bureaucratic fraternity who want the government to treat him judiciously.
