Ashok Khemka gets Central deputation: Twitteratis congratulate the honest officer
Ashok Khemka, the whistle blower IAS Officer of Haryana Cadre is making news again. One would think that after more than 40 transfers, the man would not make news with another transfer, but that is not the case. He has been again transferred, but this time on his own request. Khemka is given Central deputation, which is cleared by the Cabinet Secretary today.

All the allegations against him of misusing official duties, by the previous government at the Centre, has been cleared. He had to face a lot of troubles, since he was the one who raised fingers against Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra, for his alleged involvement in various controversial land deals. 

Khemka, who is 49 years of age, applied to be transferred from Director General, Archive, in Haryana to Central deputation this month. This IAS officer, who took on the big names of Indian politics had been transferred more than 40 times already. This 1991 IAS officer had in the past cancelled some shady deals between Robert Vadra and DLF, which landed him in trouble.

He was also charge-sheeted by the Haryana government on various counts. As reported by, in the charge-sheet it was alleged that the IAS officer went beyond his jurisdiction to cancel the land deals between DLF and Vadra. The charge-sheet had also stated that Khemka tried to defame Vadra.

After the announcement of his deputation, a number of eminent personalities took to twitter to share their happiness on how at last the honest officer has been given what he deserves. His post is yet to be decided.
