Jammu, July 7 All Jammu and Kashmir Panchayat Conference (AJKPC)—a frontline organisation of elected Panchayat members—on Tuesday strongly criticized the administration for not taking elected BDCs, Sarpanchs and Panches into confidence while finalizing development plans in rural areas. The AJKPC also censured the officers for not giving due respect and protocol to BDCs and Sarpanches which has downgraded the real spirit of Panchayati Raj Act in Jammu and Kashmir. “The elected Sarpanches and Panches and even BDCs have complained that the officers at district level don’t take them on board while finalizing development activities in rural areas. They also don’t accord the protocol to which they are entitled for under the Act. It defeats the basic purpose of Panchayati Raj Act in true sense,” Anil Sharma, UT president of AJKPC said while addressing a meeting of Pachayat members in Ramban. The meeting was organised by the district president AJKPC Ramban Mohd Iqbal Katoch. Sharma said the Panchayat also complained of corruption in Rural Development and Panchayati Raj Department who even claimed that no development work could be executed and completed without greasing the palms of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj Department.
