Swearing-in of newly elected Panchayat representatives scheduled
The swearing in ceremonies of the newly elected presidents, their deputies and members of district Panchayats would be held on December 1. Releasing the programme on Monday, the officiating secretary of Panchayati Raj, Ranjit Sinha said that the after swearing in of presidents, Vice President and members on December 1, the first meeting of the district Panchayats would be held on December 2. Similarly the Block Pramukhs, deputy Pramukhs and the members of the block Panchayats would take oath on November 29 and the first meeting of all blocks would be held on November 30. In the villages, the Pradhans would take oath of office on November 27 and the first meeting of the village Panchayats would be held on November 28.
Meanwhile the state administration is also gearing up to hold by election to fill the vacant posts in the three tier Panchayat raj bodies. In the elections of the bodies held on 5, 11 and 16 October, thousands of the positions of Panchayat bodies remained vacant. A staggering 30663 posts of the member village Panchayats are at present lying vacant. Similarly 124 posts of Pradhans and 10 posts of member Block Panchayats are also vacant. It is learnt that the state election commission has submitted a programme to the state government for holding the by election. Though the official programme of the by election is not released, the elections are expected to be scheduled in the month of December. It is worth mentioning here that due to the disinterest shown by the people to file nomination papers for the posts of member village Panchayats 30663 of such posts are at present unoccupied. For constitution of any village Panchayat, two third of the total posts of member village Panchayats should remain occupied. A situation has arisen where in thousand of villages, the village Panchayat would not come into existence due to lack of quorum. In such a condition the village Pradhans would remain redundant.
