Bandi Sanjay Lashes Out at Govt

TRS Govt is Slashing Down Powers of Sarpanches: Bandi Sanjay

Hyderabad, May 31 (Maxim News): State BJP president Bandi Sanjay Kumar said that TRS government is acting contrary to the Constitutional spirit by slashing down the powers of sarpanches.

The Union government brought in a new law strengthening local self governing bodies across the country, he added.

In an open letter to village sarpanchesSanjay said the BJP was committed to the spirit 73rd and 74th amendment Acts and that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has allotted maximum funds for the cause of local self governance, to achieve self reliance as envisioned by Mahatma Gandhi. Sanjay reminded that the TRS election manifesto in 2014 promised strengthening of Panchayati Raj institutions which were weakened and politicized in six decades of incompetent rule.

However, he said such promises were not met even after eight years of formation of separate Telangana State. Instead, the TRS government is yet again on the path to weaken the institutions while the Sarpanches are working towards development by taking loans, he added.

In the letter, Sanjay also said the State government has 2-20 lakh pending bills per gram panchayat. He noted that while it is being said in GOs that funds have been sanctioned, the State government was freezing public accounts of sarpanches and is even threatening to suspend them. Sanjay assured that if they chose to fight for their rights, BJP would support them.

He also said the Centre was providing funds for developmental projects, including Rs 11 lakh for Palle Pragati and constructing Vaikuntha Dhamams, Rs 10 lakh for Rythu Vedika, Rs 4 lakh for Palle Prakruthi Vanam, Rs 2.5 lakh for construction of dump yards, Rs 1.5 lakh for setting up of nurseries in each village panchayat.
