Alirajpur (Madhya Pradesh), Dec 22, (ANI): The District Collector of Madhya Pradesh's Alirajpur district was transferred just a few hours after a newly-elected legislator from the Congress party, Kalawati Bhuria, threatened him about changing his place of service.
An elected Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) from the Congress party, Bhuria, while attending a public meeting in the area, told the bureaucrat, "You have few days to stay in Alirajpur, enjoy as much as you can, after this, I will make sure you pack your bags and leave."

Going further, the lawmaker, comparing the district collector to an elephant and other officers to mosquitoes, said: "The collector is an elephant, let me deal with him first then I will switch to the mosquitoes (block level officers)." (ANI)
