Outspoken Pradeep Kasni, ex Gurgaon's Divisional Commissioner transfered 62 times for speaking out!
The big transfer news, which is making rounds in the Gurgaon Bureaucratic circle about Pradeep Kasni is not without reasons. He was removed from his office after one month of his appointment as the Gurgaon divisional commissioner. This, however, is nothing new for Kasni as he has seen a number of transfers in his life since 2008 when he joined the Indian Administrative Service.

He is known to be courageous and outspoken and one not to be intimidated easily. This time it is being alleged that he has been transfered as a ploy between the revenue department officials and land grabbers in Gurgaon. As was reported by, the land in question, which the commissioner was looking into is a 50 acres of land in the Aravallis hills in Raisena region, about 3-acres Panchayati land in Akleempur and many others owned by individuals having political connections and builders.

He was appointed as the Gurgaon Divisional Commissioner on November 21 and was transfered from his post on December 23. Although he has good relation with the present Haryana chief Minister, Manohar Lal Khattar, he was not able to meet with him. Till date Kasni has been transfered from office around 62 times and each time there was some ploy to remove him.

A famous incident, which has been quoted by many media houses was the time when last year on July 29, he protested loudly against the appointment of new information commissioners by the previous Bhupinder Singh Hooda-led Congress government. This obviously did not go down well with the minister in question SC Choudhary, but this did not deter Kasni from making the ministers threatening SMS public.

The said minister in his message had written to Kasni, ''Good night? please enjoy your new status of being a celebrity? But agar apni maa ka doodh piya ho to mere saare msg press ko dikha dena (if you are a man, I dare you to show my messages to the media).'' Choudhary had to apologise the very next.

Thus, Kasni, who was born in 1956 and has studied literature and LLB, is a man to look out for. His biography also shows that why honest people cannot rise in our country.
