Chaibasa, Jan. 24: A one-day training workshop on the empowerment of public representatives of panchayat was organized by TAC member JB Tubid at the Pillai Hall here on Sunday.
While imparting training to the public representatives of Jhinkpani block, Tonto block, Sadar Chaibasa and Khutpani block, Tubid said that the government system dominates the weak public representative and the representatives get deluded and do not render public service properly.
He explained that the moment one takes oath as a public representative, he/ she is empowered by the Constitution and they becomes as powerful as Deputy Commissioner or the Prime minister in their respective jurisdictions.
A Zilla Parishad member should have proper coordination with the DDC, while a Block Head needs to have coordination with the block development officer. According to Tubid, the West Singhbhum district will be receiving a huge amount of money from the government owing to its rich mineral resources and to utilize the funds one needs to implement the Yojna Banoa Abiyan.
Tubid distributed four books among the public representatives that will help to bring awareness among them relating to the government system. The class was appreciated by all concerned. The Zilla Parishad chairman Lalmuni Purty said that the training was a historical experience for him and his colleagues as learnt so much from the class and Tubid’s administrative experience.
“We are deeply grateful to Tubid for his class and workshop. This type of class should be organized again and again,” Purty said.
A question & answer session was also organized during the workshop. Those present included Zilla Parishad vice-chairman Chandmuni Balmuchu and all the newly elected panchayat representatives.
