Haryana will soon become the first state in the country to empower villagers with the right to recall non-performing members of the panchayat. A Bill in this connection would be tabled in the Assembly soon, Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala told the media here on Tuesday.

“Former Deputy Prime Minister Devi Lal had a dream that there should be a ‘right to recall’ public representatives if they lose people’s confidence and fail to come up to their minimum expectations,” he said.

The Deputy CM further said the Bill to reserve 50 per cent posts in the Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs) for women would also be tabled. “Once this Bill is passed, it will not only open doors for rural women in politics, but also give them a platform to prove themselves.”

A Bill to give 75 per cent reservation to state’s youth in the private sector would also be tabled.

“Soon, sweeping changes will be made to the Urban Local Bodies, Town and Country Planning Department and Sports Department,” the JJP leader said, adding that online booking of land registration in urban areas would start next week. — TNS
