Haryana IAS officer shifted twice in 48 hrs

Two days after he was posted as the Sonepat deputy commissioner, the Haryana government has transferred 2001-batch IAS officer Vijay Singh Dahiya and posted him as director and Special Secretary, Local Bodies and Project Director, Swaran Jayanti Shehri Rozgar Yojna and State Urban Development Society. This is Dahiya's fourth transfer in the last four months.

Dahiya, who is known for his campaign against the polythene bags while being posted as Deputy Commissioner, Panipat, was first transferred as Gurgaon Municipal Commissioner on November 26, last year. Within two months, on January 23 this year, he was shunted out and posted as Joint Secretary in the Haryana Finance department at Chandigarh.

Interestingly, Dahiya who is known for his proximity with certain Congress stalwarts and top bureaucrats in the state government, was soon given the plum posting as Deputy Commissioner, Sonepat, for which the orders were issued on Tuesday (February 12).

However, on Thursday, Dahiya was again shifted out of Sonepat and posted as Director and Special Secretary, Local Bodies and Project Director, Swaran Jayanti Shehri Rozgar Yojna and State Urban Development Society. Another IAS officer Pankaj Aggarwal was asked to continue as Deputy Commissioner, Panipat.

While the senior officers in the Haryana government have terming it "routine transfer process", reliable sources indicated that Dahiya's abrupt transfers in the last few days, including his removal from the post of Gurgaon Municipal Commissioner and then Sonepat's Deputy Commissioner, were result of his questionable conduct at a plush hotel in Gurgaon last month.
