He alleged that around 60 per cent administrative officers have been transferred twice or thrice in the last two months.
"Besides 42 police personnel have been transferred. The government is extorting money in the name of transfers," he alleged.
He said that under the transfer policy there was a tradition of maximum 15 per cent transfers.
"After the SP came to power development works have come to a standstill in all the departments due to rampant transfers," he alleged.
