The recent appointment of Durga Shakti Nagpal (IAS:2010:UP) as OSD to Union Agriculture Minister under central deputation has brought Ashok Khemka’s matter to the fore. The formation of BJP government at the centre and thereafter a BJP Government in Haryana last year had together sparked off rays of hope for Ashok Khemka (IAS:1991:HY) to a get chance to work with GoI. Reportedly, Khemka’s matter is still lying with ACC. Sources say that the proposal has neither been turned down by the ACC nor has it been withdrawn by the State Government. Though his bad days are said to be over under M L Khattar’s regime, for GoI assignment he needs to wait for a while.
