Haryana IAS officer Ashok Khemka is transferred again, this time by the BJP government. As Mr Khemka tweets his distress, does the BJP which once attacked the Congress for a witch-hunt against the IAS officer have double standards on corruption?

      I have put up your comment because I welcome feedback.But you are agreeing with me.Did Khemka make a plan by involving everyone and did he have a contingency plan in case of strike- thousands of trucks ply overloaded and that fall out has to be factored in.Very unlikely that he had kept the Minister & CM briefed who would have backed him and used political strategies to involve people in representing against such dangerous practices as over- loading.Also by telling all Depts. to give support- your point about inter- disciplinary cooperation.He probably did things on his own and brought a bigger problem at the Government’s doors.

        Respected Maa’m. i am sorry to say, i am unable to digest ur view. u have had more than 3 decade long career in service and i think it is your prospective that he did not approach minister or CM, things may have gone other wise.
        i also think, he might tried to get all stake holder bring together especially all government department but since police department is the most beneficial from overloading, they might have shown dis-interest and this evoked Ashok sir to go alone.
        Government must have handle this case otherwise, government must talk to all stake holder and bring all to corners of table like Ashok sir, police officer, revenue officers, Truck owners, Truck drivers, Labour, business men and moderate it by the help of Chief secretary or any means which had been accepted by all. this could be a great sign to all stake holders that government is serious to solve not only this problem but trying to give good governance and participatory democracy.
        removal of Ashok sir is not a solution and also pointed that government does not have a vision.
        Again this is by prospective.

    madam u r making hypothesis. In a system a problem cause due to something elsewhere. overloading had happen due to some region like, middle man charging more or police man are taking bribe or fuel price is high or many issues. these problems could be solve with interdisciplinary approach or taking people as a stakeholder with interdisciplinary approach. government could solve this issue with approaching all department, which could have been stake holder. removing of Ashok Khemka is totally a wrong step.
