There are many women panchayat representatives, who are facing problems in the area due to lack of security and vehicle facilities. It has been more than six months since the elections were held, but till now they have not received the honorarium. He said that a gap has arisen between the government and the Panchayat representatives, which should be filled. During this, the Divisional Commissioner-IG and DC-SP were also attached.
Today for the first time felt that the government is serious. His words were listened to seriously. It seemed that the government wanted to strengthen the Panchayati Raj Institutions. It also wants to ensure their participation in development. This is a good sign. -Bharat Bhushan-Chairman, Jammu District Development Council
