State deprived of benefits of Panchayati Raj Act amendments : Kuldeep Rao

Early Times Report

Jammu, Aug 26: Kuldeep Kumar Rao an active member of Movement for Peace, Equality & Justice, in a press note issued here said that elections to the 3-tier-system of Panchyati Raj are shortly going to be held in the state. The election of Block Development Councils & District Planning & Development Boards is a new phenomena (positive) in the history of J&K, though it has been adopted by many other states of the country. The system empowers the general public in real sense. It had been opposed hitherto only to perpetrate the monopoly of politicians, who are mostly corrupt.
The successive state governments were not sincere in decentralization of power to the hands of public representatives up to Panchayat level in a democratic way through democratic process and have not implemented 73rd & 74th amendments of Indian constitution in the state in toto. The politicians of the state had misused Article 370 & kept the people of the state deprived of the benefits of Panchati Raj act amendments 73 & 74. Now is the Golden opportunity before the public to elect honest men/women without the consideration of party politics, religion, caste and creed. An honest person of any party or creed is highly preferable to a dishonest person of one's own creed.
