‘Praja palana’ converted into ‘Adhikarula palana’ by not conducting elections to GPs

RAJANNA-SIRCILLA, FEBRUARY 02, 2024: BRS National Spokesperson Konduru Ravinder Rao has alleged that the Congress government which has promised ‘Praja palana’ (people’s governance) in the Telangana state converted it into ‘Adhikarula Palana’ (officials governance) by not conducting elections to the Grama Panchayats.

“The term of sarpanches ended on January 31, 2024. The government instead of extending the services of incumbent sarpanches has appointed the special officers and diluting the powers of local bodies and the Constitution”, he pointed out.

Talking to newsmen at BRS party office in Sircilla textile town on Friday, Mr Ravinder Rao urged the state government to take all necessary measures for the conduct of elections to the Grama Panchayats at the earliest and continue proper administration in the villages, which are the backbone of the country. He reminded that then Chief Minister of integrated AP N Kiran Kumar Reddy had also not conducted elections to the grama panchayats in 2011 for about two years.

He said that the BRS government after attaining power had successfully conducted the elections to the grama panchayats and other local bodies. He said that the villages have been transformed in BRS regime and won several awards of the Union government for sanitation and other parameters of development.

Stating that the villages have been turned into fertile lands on par with the Konaseema of Andhra Pradesh state with unlimited power and irrigation sources, he said that freshly the farmers of the Medak district have already come on to the roads demanding water for irrigation and release of water into Kudellivagu and also Upper Manair Dam.

He feared that the sanitation and administration would come to standstill in the villages under the special officers’ rule as they do not have accountability and they are busy with their regular assignments. BRS district president Thota Agaiah, Municipal chairperson Jindam Kala Chakrapani, councilors and others were also present.
