A fight has started between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress over post-election transfers of the state government employees for their alleged links with the BJP in the recently concluded elections in the district.

Congress leaders of various gram panchayats of the Badsar area have submitted a list of employees, including peons and clerks, to the local MLA and chief parliamentary secretary Inder Dutt Lakhanpal, who worked for the BJP during elections. They demanded that these people should be shifted out of the Badsar area.

On the other, former BJP MLA Baldev Sharma have criticised the demand of the Congress leaders for shifting the employees.

Sharma said if such transfers were made, the party would resort to an agitation. He added that no one could be shifted only because of his family relations with leaders of any political party.
