Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh chief minister Kamal Nath on Thursday declared to launch a crack down on the officers and employees of the state government who flaunted their allegiance to BJP.

Talking to reporters here, Mr Nath said some officers and employees of state government used to flaunt their loyalty to BJP during Shivraj Singh Chouhan regime. It was essential to transfer them.

“Some officers and employees of state government were attending their offices keeping BJP badges in their pockets during the previous regime. Such government personnel have to be transferred,” he said.

“Such activities by the state government employees will no longer be tolerated”, he said while justifying the recent mass transfer of officers and employees of the state government.

He also indicated to target the BJP- linked employees of Jan Abhiyan Parishad, a state government-owned organisation working as a coordinator between the state government and NGOs for promotion of its various schemes.

“All the political appointees in the organisation will be sacked,” he said.

He regretted that government funds were used for political activities by a political party through the NGOs, beneficiaries of the organisation, during the previous Shivraj Singh Chouhan regime.

The parishad was established in 1993 with a different purpose, but was turned into a milking cow by a political party during the previous government in the state, he remarked.
