GK NEWS NETWORK
Kangan, May 22: Forest Minister Mian Altaf on Sunday said the transfer of administrative power to the public representatives who would emerge victorious in the ensuing panchayat elections would take place soon. The Minister while addressing newly elected panchs and sarpanchs of his assembly constituency here said the elected representatives had to play a vital role in execution of development works in their areas.
He said they will be eyes and ears of the Government and monitor the execution work besides providing proper feedback to the administrative machinery at different levels.
Altaf said that the revival of democratic institutions at grass root level would minimize sufferings of the people.
“National Conference under the leadership of young Chief Minister Omar Abdullah is very keen for overall development of the state, for which a massive developmental programme has been launched for the benefit of the people,” he said.
The Minister said the NC led Government had also “fulfilled the promise” made to the people during last assembly elections of holding free, fair and transparent panchayati elections.
He said people have welcomed the Government’s decision and have participated largely in the ensuing panchayat elections which is a healthy sign in the democratic set up. He said there was no interference from the government in conducting the panchayat elections which were held on non-party basis.
The Minister hoped that public representatives would highlight the problems faced by people with the concerned authorities and get these addressed at the earliest.
He assured the elected public representatives that he would always remain available for them in projecting and addressing the problems of the people.
Large numbers of people including prominent citizens of the area were also present on the occasion.
