Congress-BJP political 'dogfight' continues in Madhya Pradesh
Canines remained at the centre- stage of politics in Madhya Pradesh Tuesday as well with the ruling Congress sending transfer orders of police sniffers dogs and their handlers issued during the previous BJP government to former Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
The Congress and opposition BJP are locked in a bitter war of words since Friday last when 46 police dogs and their handlers were transferred by the state government. The transfer order was issued by the commandant of the 23rd Battalion of the Madhya Pradesh Police.
BJP leaders had mockedthe move, dubbing it as part of a "flourishing transfer racket" under the Congress government which took charge in December last year. The Congress hit back at the BJP Monday with PWD Minister Sajjan Singh Verma saying the saffron party had a "dog-like mentality".
