Gurgaon, Oct 30: IAC activist Arvind Kejriwal Tuesday challenged the Haryana government to hand over the charges of two of the state’s urban development departments to IAS officer Ashok Khemka for two months.
Attacking the nexus of IAS officials and the ruling Congress, Kejriwal demanded that Khemka be given charge of Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) and Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA).
Khemka was transferred a fortnight ago after he ordered scrutiny of United Progressive Alliance (UPA) chairperson Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra’s land records with real estate major, DLF.
Khemka has been transferred 43 times in his 19 years of service.
Addressing the Kisan Mahapanchayat at Manesar, Kejriwal said that during the tenure of Om Prakash Chautala as chief minister, Khemka had opposed the government’s decision to hand over 19 acres of land in Nathupur village to DLF.
The Punjab and Haryana High Court recently quashed the deal saying it was illegal, Kejriwal said.
