Taking strong exception to the statement of Congress Legislative Party (CLP) leader Mukesh Agnihotri on transfers, Forest minister Govind Singh Thakur blamed Congress for making a mountain out of a mole.

He said on Monday that the Opposition party was indulging in baseless criticism and making issues over minor things, which itself speaks about the fact that Opposition has nothing constructive to speak against the present government.

The state government headed by Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur is dedicated to fulfill the aspirations of the people of the state and making sincere efforts to perform its best for the welfare of the people.

He said that Agnihotri should speak upon issues which are of utmost importance to the state and its people.

“It is very surprising that such a senior leader who has himself been a minister is speaking irrelevantly on a matter like transfers which is a part of the administrative process for smooth functioning of offices,” he added.

He said that even previous government has ordered transfers and postings suiting to the requirement of administrative functioning then what was the need to create such noise over a similar step taken by present government to bring dynamism in the administrative process.
