3rd party cables will work.

1. Turn on USB power.
2. Plug in Lightning cable to iPad.
3. Dismiss any warnings.
4. Unlock your iPad.
5. Dismiss any remaining warnings.
6. Now with the screen turned on, unplug the Lightning cable.
7. Plug it back in.
8. Dismiss warning again. It should now charge.

Your milage may vary.

Hey thank you guys for the replies but maybe I did not rephrase my query properly.
If we use OTG cable, can we somehow either transfer or view the files that is attached to the USB drive on the OTG cable? If cannot transfer, at least view is also not too bad...

I guess you are referring to this item.

Lightning to USB Camera Adapter - Apple Store (Singapore)

It looks like it can connect to USB drive...
