Kisan union seeks removal of Udhowal sarpanch

Jalandhar, June 10

A delegation of the Kirti Kisan Union along with panches of the Udhowal village met BDPO Mehatpur and demanded removal of the village sarpanch.

They demanded a high-level inquiry into the alleged irregularities being conducted by the village sarpanch. They said the residents of the village had been opposing the sarpanch for the past two days. While the residents have been protesting against the conversion of a village spot used by Dalits into a sewage pond, they have also been resenting the raising of the height of a street where a villager, who is close to the sarpanch, resides. On the insistence of the kisan union, BDPO Surjit Singh also visited the village on Wednesday.

Village panches Sandeep, Harman, Jagtar Singh, Bibi Sarbjit, Bibi Sukhwinder and Balveer SIngh said the sarpanch had lost his majority. They said the panchayat did not hold a single meeting after March 2019. — TNS
