Salute to Haryana IAS officers Parveen Kumar and Ashok Khemka
At a time when most officers of Haryana posted in HUDA and town and country planning departments dealing colonizers are known as their agent - this IAS officer Parveen Kumar has set an example for others.

OFFICERS POSTED in Haryana Urban Development Authority are known for the wrong reasons like for working as agent of powerful colonizers. But Parveen Kumar, IAS, posted as Administrator of HUDA, at Gurgaon, has done what most of his colleagues will not even imagine - if larger public interest is involved. According to media reports, Parveen Kumar has taken the bold step of removing the barricade at the 32-lane toll plaza on Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway where residents were protesting against blocking of the U-turn after a High court order.

Kumar has reportedly taken this step in public interest despite reluctance shown by the private concessionaire managing the toll and the police. He took the responsibility stating that he had enough video evidence to convince the court that decision was in public interest. Earlier, Parveen Kumar has hit media headlines by joining the anti-corruption movement launched by Anna Hazare. Kumar will not get any monetary benefit for his act. Rather, powerful lobbies will make all efforts to get him penalized for his act. Hope other officers will also take a lesson.

They are not supposed and expected to take such a step of defying court orders even in public interest. But at least they can defy the verbal orders of ministers, which are against the pubic interest. At that moment they will be transferred from the prize posting.

Another IAS officer of Haryana cadre, Ashok Khemka is also hitting headlines for exposing corruption. At a time when several officers posted in land consolidation,Town and Country Planning department and HUDA are making  tons of money, Khemka is making enemies by exposing land misdeeds. Khemka has raised the issue of illegal move of allotment of land to a Delhi based builder during the regime of Om Parkash Chautala on the basis of notings on files.

Congress leader Randeep Surjewala has submitted a memorandum to Haryana Governor. But the present government, headed by Bhupinder Singh Hooda, also did not post him on pubic dealing postings. But recently he raised the irregularities being committed in allotment of village land to private builders. Salute to Parveen and Khemka.
