"The allegations are baseless. There is no witch hunt. We do not question the integrity of the officer. It is prerogative of the government to transfer any bureaucrat. The Chief Secretary will be able to brief about the reasons behind the transfer", party General Secretary BK Hari Prasad told PTI.
Hari Prasad is in charge of the party affairs in Congress-ruled Haryana. Significantly, on the last day of his posting as Director General of Land Consolidation and Land Records-cum-Inspector-General of Registration on Monday, Ashok Khemka also issued an order cancelling the mutation of over 3 acre plot of land in Manesar-Shikohpur that Vadra had sold to DLF. Khemka, a 1991-batch officer, has attacked the decision to transfer him, saying it was "demoralising and dehumanising".
