“The administration is not giving any ear to the issues raised by elected members of Panchayati Raj Institution and are threatening and harrassing the PRIs. Issue came into light when ACD Kishtwar threatened a lady Sarpanch of Panchayat Pakkalan of Block Thakrai when she rose an issue of payments of watershed in her Panchayat which were physically not some on ground but payment was drawn by the ACD,” a handout.
Also DFO Marwah misbehaved with one of the DDC member of Palmar block and he is not paying heed to any of the issues of general public raised to him. His non serious approach towards the works of general public is creating mess among the public, the handout said.

Few months before also a protest was held by the chairperson regarding this but still no progress is shown.
