A delegation of the BJP led by Party Vice-President Samir Mohanty in a memorandum to the CEO Surendra Kumar alleged that the four officers were working for the political interest of the BJD misusing their official position.
The activist ransacked flower pots and damaged the vehicles parked inside the quarters and hurled cow dungs and stones.
Stating that the police had taken a serious view of the incident, Khurania said "lawlessness can not be tolerated at any cost and stern action will be taken against those involved in the incident".
BJD spokesperson Pratap Deb said the vandalism by BJP's youth wing speaks volumes about sick mentality of the saffron party's top brass.
The incident was widely condemned by the CM, the Congress and associations of Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and Odisha Administrative Service officers.
Later in the day the state leaders of the BJP submitted a petition to the Election Commission of India seeking the removal of the bureaucrat and four others before February 24th bypolls in Bijepur district.
IAS association secretary Vishal Dev said all the IAS officers belong to the Central Government and such attacks will not be tolerated.
A scuffle ensued between the BJP workers and policemen while the former were trying to enter the officer's house, following which they were detained.
The Odisha Administrative Service (OAS) Association and the Odisha Information Service (OIS) Association also condemned the incident and demanded severe action against the vandals. About 30 activists of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) arrived at the official residence of Pandian at Unit-VI and shouted slogans against him, alleging that he was working for the ruling BJD. "It is shocking and that too from a national party", Naveen said. Pandian is acting as the Super CM, which is not acceptable to people of the state, he said.
