Panchayat Elections

The Arunachal Pradesh Youth Congress (APYC) on Friday submitted a copy of its signature campaign to the governor, demanding that the panchayat elections be conducted in the state.

The APYC had carried out the signature campaign across the state’s rural areas from 23 April, demanding the governor’s intervention to conduct the polls.

The panchayat elections were due in May this year, but the Pema Khandu government postponed it, citing forecasted inclement weather across the state.

The postponement of the elections drew flak from the Congress, which described the decision as “an attempt to put the panchayati raj institution on its death bed for selfish interests.”

In a representation that accompanied the copy of the signature campaign submitted to the governor, the APYC claimed that that the majority of the people in the rural areas wanted that the panchayat elections be conducted this year.

Seeking the governor’s intervention, the APYC condemned the Pema Khandu government for “attempting to buy time and taking the rural mass for granted on the pretext of working on the two-tier modalities.

“It is mere delaying tactic by Pema Khandu government for selfish MLAs’ interests,” the APYC said.

It said the delay in conducting the panchayat elections showed the state government’s incapability to provide financial support and manpower for the elections.

The APYC also demanded that the chief minister resign on moral ground for his failure to conduct the polls on time.
