"The only agenda of the state government is 'Badla-Badli' and institution of false cases. Mass transfers and suspension of elected representatives of Panchayati Raj Institutions owing allegiance to BJP has become the order of the day," BJP leader and former HP chief minister, Prem Kumar Dhumal, said at a rally in Shimla.
    
Alleging that the Congress government was victimizing its political opponents and indulging in a game of 'transfers and revenge' (Badla-Badli), Dhumal said that those indulging in politics of vendetta would be paid back in the same coin.
    
He also said that the government has failed to provide ration under the Public Distribution System and no steps have been taken to generate employment.
    
The law and order situation in HP has deteriorated as well, he said. Addressing the rally, state BJP president Satpal Singh Satti said that there is ‘goonda raj’ in the state and warned the police and administration against hobnobbing with Congress leaders who are bent upon fulfilling their political agenda.
    
Referring to the phone tapping row, Dhumal said, "It is strange that Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh himself has become the complainant, investigator, prosecutor and judge and is blaming one person or the other for alleged phone-tapping."
