Amendment in Panchayati Raj Rules for J&K is highly appreciated: Chrungoo

Jammu, October 18 (Scoop News)- "The required amendment in the Panchayati Raj Rules for Jammu and Kashmir is highly appreciated and is a great step to take democracy to the grass root level. This will open new opportunities of participation in the government by the public representatives with a developmental agenda in focus", said Ashwani Kumar Chrungoo, senior BJP and Kashmiri Pandit leader and Incharge, Deptt of Political Affairs and Feedback, J&K-BJP.

He was reacting to the major pathbreaking step to set up, for the first time, the District Development Councils (DDCs) in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. The J&K Panchayati Raj Rules amended to provide DDCs is a major democratic advance which will also require delimitation of the constituencies & their elections for 14 segments in each district. Thus it will accommodate at least 280 public representatives among the district socio-political activists for participation in the democratic and developmental processes throughout the UT.

"The envisaged District Planning Committees and portfolios in the District Development Councils in the UT are also a big stride in this connection which will give a right to the elected representative to choose the right priorities while planning for his/her district and the constituency he or she represents. It is a revolutionary measure that has the blessings of the PM, Narendra Modi and the Union Home Minister, Amit Shah", added Chrungoo.

He also while referring to the so-called Gupkar activism pointed it out that the 'Gupkar circus' doesn't comprise any non-Muslim or non-Kashmiri in its fold. "It is purely a sectarian and communal agenda reminiscent of J&K Muslim League agenda of 1930s for fulfillment of desires and ambitions to rule J&K again, by hook or by crook. Every single participant knows it well that what they demand is not possible even in dreams".

Chrungoo said, "All leaders of the parties comprisinging the alliance should first of all handover the possession of the huge chunks of land that they have illegally held under the unconstitutional Roshni Act. They need also to furnish the list of the beneficiaries from their respective parties who grabbed costly pieces of land with the help and connivance of the then government and administration".

"It is high time for these parties to come clean on the issue before the public and recognize the right of the public to ask them about their accountability and transparency in this regard. They should also at once leave their high profile government bangalows for which they are not entitled to", he further added.
