JAMMU, July 5: All Jammu Kashmir Panchayat Conference (AJKPC) State president, Anil Sharma today announced the names of block-level coordinators of the organisation in Jammu region.
While appointing block-level coordinators, Sharma, said the new coordinators will further expand base of AJKPC at the grassroots level and intensify the outreach programme launched by the organisation to strengthen the Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs) in the region.
He said Pawan Sharma has been appointed as coordinator of block Pouni while Akram Choudhary will be the coordinator of block Mahore in Reasi. Kewal Singh will be the coordinator of block Arnas and Raj Kumar of block Reasi.
For different blocks of Udhampur, Sanjeet Sharma will be the coordinator of block Jaganu, Sudesh Kumar of block Chenani, Hans Raj Thakur of block Moungari, Kuldeep Kumar of tehsil Panchari, Kartar Singh of block Panchari, Rajesh Kumar of block Majalta, Manoj Verma of block Khoon and Ramesh Gupta of block Khoon,
For various blocks of Jammu district, Sharma said Avtar Singh will be the coordinator of block Satwari, Kishore Sharma of block Nagrota, Romal Singh of block Dansal, Pawan Raina of block Miran Sahib, Jatindar Singh of block Bishnah, Kuldeep Raj of block Arnia, Rohit Sharma of block Maira Mandrian, Des Raj Bhagat of block Akhnoor, Pathan Singh of block Khour, Ram Saroop Sharma of block Pargwal, Anil Kumar of block Sunderbani, Suresh Kumar of block Samoua and Anita Verma of block Khara. Ram Lal Kalia has been appointed as coordinator of block Hiranagar in Kathua district.
Meanwhile, the AJKPC again reiterated its demand for constitution of BDCs and DDPBs before holding Assembly elections in the State.
Anil Sharma sought separate Finance and Election Commissions exclusively for Panchayats if the Government really intends to empower the people at grassroots level. He said State and the Centre should devise a mechanism under which the Sarpanches and Panches are paid monthly salary rather than honorarium.
“Each Sarpanch should be paid a monthly salary of Rs 25,000 while an amount of Rs 10,000 should be paid to each Panch every month so that they are able to smoothly carry out development activities in their respective Panchayats,” he demanded.
