A senior Haryana IAS officer has accused the state government of punishing him with frequent transfers for what he says is ‘exposing scams’ and hinting at an alleged corrupt nexus between politicians and bureaucrats.

The officer,Dr Ashok Khemka,has strongly hit out at the state government in a letter sent to chief secretary P K Chaudhery on Friday,a day after he was transferred from his job of Director-General (Consolidations) under the revenue ministry and posted as managing director,Haryana Seeds Development Corporation.

Khemka was DG (Consolidations) for about three months. Before that,he was managing director of state government electronics firm Hartron for about 50 days. The 1991-batch officer has been transferred more than 40 times in his career.

In his letter to Chaudhery,Khemka has called his transfer as “deliberate and malafide” to punish him “due to some vested elements in the political-bureaucratic hierarchy affected by the exposure of the scams in consolidation under the garb of exercise of powers under section 42 of the Consolidation Act”.
