People being misled on name of Panchayati Raj: MPEJ

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Sept 14: Movement for Peace, Equality and Justice (MPEJ) today lambasted the State Government for befooling people on the name of Panchayati Raj.
Issuing a joint statement while reacting to a recent news, Kuldeep Kumar Rao and Ram Singh Chauhan, members of Movement for Peace, Equality and Justice, said that on one hand the fate of elections to Panchayats and Urban Local Bodies are hanging in balance and Block Development Councils (BDCs) in the State have not seen the day of light during last 70 years as compared to other States of the Country, and on other hand we find laying foundation stone of BDC complex at Vijaypur.
“We urge upon both Commerce and Industry as also Rural Development Minister to come out and tell people whether Government is really interested in election BDC Chairman for every block of the State and if so, is the Government contemplating to construct BDC complex in every block or it is an exercise in isolation to please a particular community”, they added.
