Aam Aadmi Party

A Few hours after Haryana government decided to ask the CBI to probe the senior IAS officer Ashok Khemka's allotment of work order to an Ahmedabd-based company, Aam Aadmi Party has demanded that the government investigation agency should instead probe chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda's 'shady' land deals during his tenure in state.

Lending support to Khemka, Navin Jaihind, national executive member of the party here, said: "AAP stands in support of honest and upright officers like Khemka, who exposed the nexus of Congress government favours done to UPA president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra.”

Terming the decision of the state government as quite ironic, he said: “CBI should investigate as how many builders, land sharks have been 'benefited' from the chief minister allotting them farmers land at concessional rates.”

Calling Khemka a daring officer, he said that he was being made a scapegoat for doing his duty honestly.

He said that if yje state government intentionally harasses honest officers like this, then the party would launch an agitation against it in the near future. He said that party might also take a big decision in this regard after holding a discussion with Delhi chief minister and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal.
