Do not interfere in functioning of PRIs, Shopian Panchayat association tells BDC Chairmen

Shopian August 13:(KNS) The Panch and Sarpanch Association of Shopian has urged the BDC Chairmen of the District no to interfere in the functioning of panchayat bodies.
In a statement issued here, the President of Panch and Sarpanch Association Shopian, Mushtaq Ahmad Khanday and vice president Mohd Yousuf Mir has expressed serious concern over the unnecessary interference of the BDC Chairmen in the functioning of Sarpanchs and Panchs.
The interference in the developmental process by the BDC Chairmen is unacceptable and uncalled for, they said.
They said the interference into the functioning of Sarpanchs and Panchs has the potential to create hurdles in the developmental process, leading to confusion at various levels in the district administration also.
The Sarpanchs and Panchs must be allowed to work and serve the people for which they have been elected. The unnecessary interference by the BDC chairmen shall even undermine their own authority, which will not be in the interest of the Panchayat Raj.
The Association has urged the Deputy Commissioner Shopian to look into the matter and ensure that there is no interference into the functioning of PRIs by the BDC Chairmen, who seemed apparently help bent upon to make PRIs dysfunctional to serve their vested interests.
The administration must strengthen the PRIs in order to ensure development of the people at grass roots level, which is the sole responsibility of the Sarpanchs and Panchs.(KNS)
