Bhim demands amendment of 1989 Panchayat Act
JAMMU, Oct 2: National Panthers Party (NPP) Chief Patron Prof Bhim Singh alongwith his senior members, today extended its full support to the cause of Sarpanchs and Panchs of Jammu Pradesh who were sitting on one-day solidarity fast in front of Raj Bhawan Jammu and demanded immediate amendment in the 1989 Panchayat Act in the State.

Bhim while addressing the gathering congratulated the Sarpanchs and the Panchs who have taken a courageous decision to launch the PEC. He also advised the members to launch PEC committees in every block and district to create awakening among the people in the villages against corruption, communalism, criminalization, drugs, illiteracy etc.

He further demanded that district Chairmen, Vice-chairmen and Block Chairmen elected by the members of the Panchayats as is the law throughout the country under 73rd Amendment in the Central Panchayat Act, holding elections to the Local Bodies, Municipal Corporations and bringing them also under 74th Amendment of the Central Law so as to elect the Chairmen of such Bodies by the elected members only, no nomination of Chairmen etc. is authoritarian and undemocratic. All members of the Panchayats should be provided with security cover to protect their lives and their families and the latter should be empowered to deal with local justice.
