The news of transfer of IAS couple from Delhi, after being accused of sending athletes early from Thyagraj stadium so that they could walk with their dog on the tracks, has taken the whole nation by storm for last few days. The incident was regarded as sheer misuse of power. It wasn’t until a media outlet reported the issue that besides Delhi government extending time for athletes till 10 pm, Union Home Ministry, in a 'knee-jerk' reaction, transferred the husband-wife duo to Ladakh and Arunanchal Pradesh respectively.

Soon as the news of transfer got flashed, social media got divided over the decision of government. Moreover, few started a meme fest over the fate of dog, as the couple got separated and were being posted at different places.

However, another controversy has erupted over Ladakh being called a 'punishment posting'. A section of people, which includes some eminent personalities as well, have now expressed their displeasure over some people calling the decision of government as a 'punishment posting'. They believe the notion generated through the social media outrage, calling the transfer a punishment, portrays Ladakh in bad light.
