“Government has failed to protect the threatened Panchayat Members in J&K”: Dr Darakhshan
It is a politically guided mission to derail the Panchayati System in Jammu & Kashmir: SDP President
25 new political workers from other parties from Akhnoor constituency join SDP at a function organised at SDP Headquarters

                     Panchayats in Jammu & Kashmir have been made casualty to the political misadventures. The Operation Fear is a politically guided mission to derail the Panchayati system in Jammu & Kashmir. Unfortunately our state government is a part of this mission as it has allowed the elected representatives to feel insulted by refusing them proper powers and failing in providing them proper security system”, said Dr Darakhshan Andrabi, the President of Socialistic Democratic Party. While addressing the party leaders and newly inducted members at Party headquarters in Jammu, SDP President said that throughout the state the elected Panchs and Sarpanchs are very annoyed with the government as they have not been properly empowered to deliver at the grass root level. She said that they have been made non- decision making bodies subservient to the political workers of the ruling class in their respective areas. “Majority of the Panchs and Sarpanchs are from non-ruling class and hence government has hesitated in empowering Panchayats as promised. This has dejected these elected representatives and it is becoming one more big reason of alienation at the grass root level within the state,” said Darakhshan. She said that the process of threatening and killing Panchs and Sarparchs is a part of that big organized political mission on which many of our political leaders and their groups rely. She asked the state government to take a serious note of this all and immediately take steps to empower the Panchayats as promised and again think of the security of these elected grass root representatives at all costs. She also demanded that a reasonable monthly salary be fixed for these valourous elected  representatives.
