Uttarakhand Three-tier Panchayat Election 2019
Except for Haridwar, the final publication of the Panchayat Reservation List will be done in all the 12 districts today. The process of inviting objections to the districts and hearing them was completed on Friday. Notification will be issued on the final decision on the proposals to be received from the districts.
The state government will make the final list of reservations available to the State Election Commission on September 1. After this, the State Election Commission will send the proposed program of elections to the government. If this is agreed, then the Election Code of Conduct will be implemented in 12 districts with the notification of the State Election Commission.
Panchayat elections have not been held in time even this time. The administrators currently rule in the panchayats, but due to the strict stand of the High Court, now an early election is being held. The government has assured the High Court to complete the three-tier panchayat elections by 30 November 2019.
After this, preparations are going on at the war level. The publication of the reservation list was postponed thrice due to the disaster, but now the whole process is reaching the level of final publication. According to Secretary-in-charge of Panchayati Raj, Dr. Ranjit Kumar Sinha, there is a preparation for holding panchayat elections soon with time-bound preparations. After completing the reservation process, the State Election Commission will be informed on September 1.
One day opposition to objection, the question of transparency
The Panchayat Janadhikar Manch has raised questions on being given just one day to register objections to the proposals for panchayat reservation. Forum convener Jot Singh Bisht has sent a letter to the CM. Bisht has said that the process of fixing reservations has been dealt with quickly.
Only one day has been given for filing objections, while two days have been spent in the hearing. Similarly, regarding the kind of reservation that has been proposed, the situation of previous elections should also be put in front of the people. The old figures should have been displayed at all the major places so that people would be able to register objections. But this has not been done.
He demanded the CM take appropriate steps to bring transparency in the entire process. Objections should be invited by September 3 in this order. On the other hand, Secretary in-charge of Panchayati Raj, Dr. Ranjit Kumar Sinha, says that the motive for holding panchayat elections in time is behind giving a day’s time for objections. The entire process is being completed in a timely manner.
