Early Times Report

JAMMU, Aug 23: In a meeting of the Members of Movement for Peace, Equality and Justice said that Jammu and Kashmir people have high hopes from the new governor. They expect that the process of three-tier Panchayati Raj system election will be expedited effectively after quashing all the detrimental amendments made by the previous governments in Panchati Raj Act of 1989.
In the press statement issued here, this step in the interest of general public will go into the history of J&K as great contributions of both the Governors. The politicians of the state had misused Article 370 and kept the people of the state deprived of the benefits of Panchati Raj act amendments 73 and 74.
They further said that the Block Development Councils and District Planning and Development Boards (Block Samities and Zilla Parishad) have never been framed here since independence playing a big joke with the citizens of the state. In fact the release said that successive state governments never wanted to decentralize the powers into the hands of public representatives at the grass root level, duly elected by public in a democratic manner. The release added that these institutions have never been formed here by the successive state Governments as they never wanted to decentralize the powers into the hands of public representatives at the Panchayat level, in a democratic manner for fear of losing the charm of cozy chair and getting irrelevant.
They appealed the masses to teach such forces a lesson in the ensuing Panchayat and local Bodies elections because these forces are squarely responsible for all miseries of the poor masses of the state irrespective of caste, creed and colour. The release emphasized that public of the state should elect their own clean slated candidates instead of spent forces attached to any conventional political Parties.
Prominent among those who attended the meeting included Dr. GS Charak, Ram Singh Chauhan, Kuldeep Kumar Rao, Gurtaj Singh, Om Raj Bhall, Romesh Lal Bhagat, Yog Raj Sharma and Behari Lal Bhagat.
