Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij has stirred a hornet's nest by alleging that some officers were creating misunderstanding between him and Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, impacting departmental work. 

In a statement issued here on Wednesday, Vij said, "Some officers are obstructing my departmental works to 'please' the Chief Minister. If they think that me and the CM are against each other, they are badly mistaken. We both are good friends. Officers playing this dirty game will have to pay a heavy price for this."

The development comes in the aftermath of the Khattar-Vij tussle over extension to DGP Manoj Yadava, who was due to return to the IB earlier this year. Finally, the CM had the last word and Yadava continued to be the head of the police force till he expressed his willingness to return to the IB earlier this month. 

Vij had also written a letter to the CM stating that in the Home and Health Departments, it was difficult to manage affairs with one officer holding both the charges. He had also suggested that one charge be taken away and given to another officer.
