"Awaiting posting on promotion for last 3 months. Holding a lower rank post is humiliating. Like a Lt Gen forced to hold post of Brigadier (sic)," tweeted the senior IAS officer, who currently holds the rank of Principal Secretary of the Haryana government.
The 1991 batch officer was promoted to the rank of Principal Secretary in January by the BJP-led Haryana government.
Khemka had shot into limelight in 2012 when he had cancelled the mutation of a land deal between Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra's M/s Skylight Hospitality and DLF Universal Ltd.
The IAS officer has faced over 40 transfers during his career so far.
