New Delhi - An uncomfortable officer has been placed in India for the 45th time. The NDTV Indian TV channel reported that Ashok Khemka got now moved to a simple job in the Department of Archaeology and Museums of the State of Haryana. Khemka is known all over India, because during his 23-years career he has uncovered numerous corruption scandals - and he was removed from his positions by various governments again and again.
Before Khemka has been transport officer in Haryana. He tweeted after the takeover of the position a few months ago: "We have to decide between road safety, protection of the public good and the environment on the one site and private profit on the other side". He said he wanted to tackle license purchase on the black market and make the names of all illegal profiteers public.
It never came. Now he tweeted: "I have taken great pains to fight corruption and enforce reforms in the transport sector, although my room was very limited and many stakeholders were involved deeply. That moment is now very painful."
What can we expect from a country where such a corruption and fraud is already public and nobody is doing something against it?
Why should in such a case the business to be honest?
India is a land of scam?
No! There are after all honest people there too. Don’t throw all into one pot. A good example for a honest person is Ashok Khemka. He leads by being a good example and I hope that many people will follow his example.
