Accusing the IAS officer of working for the ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD), the irate BJP workers waving saffron-green flags stormed into the official residence and broke flower pots, damaged a few vehicles parked there and pelted stones.
The protesters also hurled cow dung at the government accommodation.
"Pandian is acting like a 'super Chief Minister'. His favouritism towards the BJD is not acceptable.
"The incident is an unfortunate one and it depicts the mentality of top BJP leaders. Such kind of protests is unacceptable in a democracy. Police should take action against those involved in the incident," said Deb.
"This is a serious matter. Stringent action will be taken against them. We have already arrested some while others involved would be arrested soon," he said.
Pandian has been under attack from BJD leaders, as well. Several BJD leaders, including suspended MP Baijayant Panda have attacked the Chief Minister's private secretary for his interference in party politics.
