'Acche din' in the offing for upright IAS officers Ashok Khemka and Durga Shakti Nagpal
As far as Durga Sakti Nagpal is concerned, sources say that she would be appointed as OSD of Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh. And even PMO has given green signal to this. When asked about this new assignment, Nagpal reportedly accepted that she has a proposal but said that some formalities is yet to be completed on the front.
Ashok Khemka had faced wrath for speaking against Congress vice president Sonia Gandhi's son in law Robert Vadra in illegal land deals in Haryana, while upright officer Nagpal bore the brunt of Akhilesh government for taking cudgel against sand mafias.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is known for supporting honest officers and at times goes to any extent to give them their due. Modi had proved this from very first day in the Government. He had appointed Nripendra Misra as his Principal Secretary going out of his way.
Reports say that Modi government is determined to change the face of the bureaucracy. The new dispensation wants to appoint young, bright minded officers in the Centre. And for that a list of 24 officers from all over the country has been made. Nagapal is one of them.
It is really praiseworthy that these bright officers are getting their due now which was eluded to them during erstwhile UPA government. But then these officers deserve that.
