Jamshedpur: Panchayat representatives vent ire against DC

Agitation at district collectorate, memo to Guv

Jamshedpur, January 24: Panchayati representative staged a protest against East Singhbhum district administration at district collectorate in Jamshedpur on Tuesday

Leader of Jharkhand Zilla Parishad Sangh Joyce Besra said that even after 12 years, Panchayat representatives are fighting for the powers and facilities given in their constitution, the battle will be fought to protect their dignity. If the arbitrary transfer of public servants is not cancelled, then we will approach the High Court and the panchayat representatives of 24 districts of Jharkhand support this spark that has started in East Singhbhum and further this fight will spread to 24 districts.

Zilla parishad chairperson Bari Murmu said that the officials are taking advantage of the innocence and lack of information of the panchayat representatives.

“The powers and facilities given in the constitution are our rights and we know how to fight for the rights of the panchayat representatives. Proper and respectable honorarium will have to be given to Panchayat representatives,” said Murmu.

A 15-point demand letter in the name of the Governor was handed over to the magistrate appointed in the absence of the Deputy Commissioner.

The memorandum alleges that Deputy Commissioner who is also chief executive officer of Zilla Parishad is violating her rights. Ignoring the rules, she us arbitrarily transferred public servants without the permission of the Zilla Parishad. In this regard, an order to cancel the transfer was sent to all the blocks by the Zilla Parishad chairperson.

The whole controversy has started regarding the violation of the rights of the elected public representatives.

Bari Murmu further alleged that the Deputy Commissioner has not called a Zilla Parishad meeting even once after taking charge as the Chief Executive Officer. Due to this allotment could not be received for the schemes started by the Zilla Parishad. The schemes for which the foundation stone was laid are still incomplete. The bills of the contractors are not being paid.

On December 16, a letter was sought from the Zilla Parishad seeking an appointment with the Deputy Commissioner. It is alleged that the Deputy Commissioner did not give time to meet. On January 16, once again the elected representatives under the leadership of Zilla Parishad chairperson reached office to meet the Deputy Commissioner. The Deputy Commissioner was not present in office. After this, a front has been opened against the Deputy Commissioner in the Zilla Parishad.

A memorandum addressed to the Chief Minister is also being planned to be submitted to the chief minister during Hemant Soren visit to Jamshedpur on January 30 and 31.
