Mr. Khemka had been transferred 40 times in his 21 year service with Haryana government. Mr. Omprakash Chautala, the honorable ex chief minister of Haryana, of girls should be married by age 15 to avoid rape fame, had even removed his official vehicle. Mr. Khemka walked to office. In Bhupinder Singh Hooda government, Mr. Khemka had been transferred 14 times in 7 years. So when he received his transfer order on 11th Oct, 2012 at 10 PM at night at his residence, within 3 days of initiation enquiry on land transfer irregularity, it was no surprise.
There are two schools of thought on the affairs of Mr. Khemka. First group believe, which include Haryana government and central government of India, Mr. Khemka should have complained through proper channel if he had a grievance. Mr Khemka should have never come to TV channel and must not have discussed official secrets. These people also believe, that Mr. Khemka had not right continuing in his office and taking action that he did when he was no longer an officer in the department. Government also claimed that transferring an officer is its prerogative - 40 times in 20 years!!! It was also claimed that Mr. Khemka was an worthless and incompetent. officer.
However, the second school of thought suggest that Mr. Khemka had seen a much bigger crime that was leading to loss to state exchequer. There was evidence of illegal activity, involvement of high officers of government, and undue gain to politically influencial individual and a business house. So it was nothing but his duty to act in the way he did. Mr. Khemka also felt that since he had challenged his transfer and not actually accepted the new posting, he was technically still an officer in the department. Moreover, Mr. Khemka was getting death threat. If he had not come out in the open, he might have been dead by now.
