25 Sikhs elected as Panch, Sarpanch in Valley: APSCC
Srinagar: As many as 25 Sikhs have been elected as Panches and Sarpanches in the ongoing Panchayat elections in Kashmir reflecting communal harmony and secularism in the Valley, All Parties Sikh Coordination Committee chairman Jagmohan Singh Raina said on Thursday.
Thanking the majority community for showing faith in Sikhs in the recent Panchayat polls, Raina urged the elected members to work for the upliftment of the people.
“We urge Sikh members to work as per the expectation of the masses so that next time they are elected unopposed,” he said.
He hoped that the Panchayats would ensure empowerment of people at grass-root level, besides accelerating the pace of development of rural areas.
“Panchayat elections have after a long period opened a new window in the development process and public representation, as the grass root levels would be actively involved in the launch, implementation and monitoring of schemes at Panchayat level,” he said.
