The News Minute| September 9, 2014| 5.44 pm IST U Sagayam, IAS is a famous man; not just because he is an IAS officer but because of his idealistic policy of rejecting bribes and his clean image. Reminiscent of the Ashok Khemka case in Haryana who was transferred a number of times in his career, U Sagayam has been transferred between government departments twice in two days, bringing his total transfers to about 24 in 23 years, said The Times of India. He was transferred from the Co-optex department to become commissioner of Indian medicine and homeopathy. But on Friday he was again transferred to a lower position as vice-chairman of Science City, said the report. Sagayam is well-reputed as an clean government servant and was widely appreciated for his expose on sand Mafia when he was the Madurai collector. Â A Facebook post by the Aam Aadmi Partyâ€™s TN page says that U Sagayam was the reason that Co-optex turned into a profit making unit when he became its director, said the report.
