The duo alleged that Section 45 of Panchayati Raj Act was sidestepped while passing district CAPEX Budget and openly challenged the decision of delaying formation of district development council standing committees as they challenged that majority lies with them and chairperson is delaying the formation of committees as she do not want to delegate powers to other members of the council.
” Only 25 minutes were given to read 150 page documents to each member which violates the basic tenets of democracy.
They blamed that chairperson is trying to disempower the District development council as she agreed with administration to side line DDC and instead agreed with administration to present district plan in district planning committee. They also blamed that
The opinion of Block Development Chairpersons (BDCs) who are important members in district development council at par with District development councilors (DDCs) wasn’t taken on board which makes the process to smell fishy ” Advocate Tajamul added
