Panchayat union to protest tomorrow against Punjab government

Patiala, September 13

Members of the Sarpanch Panchayat Union, Punjab, today said they would hold a protest against the state government on September 15 in which panchayats from across the state would participate. Union state president Gurmeet Singh Fatehgarh Sahib said panchayats should leave political parties and come together to find solutions to their problems.

The members said MGNREGA payments and development works had been pending in rural areas for long and their demands had gone unheard.

They were forced to spend on development projects in villages from their own pocket, they claimed. — TNS
