Janmabhoomi only to benefit TDP cadre

Hyderabad, Dec 30: Pooh-poohing the
third phase of Janmabhoomi of TDP beginning January 2, YSR Congress has
said that the State has been belittling the Panchayat Raj institution by taking
away the powers of elected representations of local bodies and placing them in
the hands of committees laden with party cadre.

‘What is the outcome of the first and
second phases of Janmbhoomi should be asked by the people when the officials
and committee members tour the villages in the third phase,’ party MP YV Subba
Reddy told reporters here on Wednesday.

The government has been reducing the
elected public representatives to non-entities by empowering the Janmabhooti
committee members to take decisions and clear applications which goes against
the spirit of the panchayat raj and decentralization of power. Even the MLA
funds earmarked for constituency development are being usurped by TDP local
leaders wherever YSRCP has representation and this is a blot on the democratic
functioning, he said.

There are lakhs of applications pending
but not a single redressal was there. While 10 lkah applications have coming
for house, the government claims that it has cleared some 6 lakh applications
but not single house has come up.

‘The government is more bent on
publicity than on the welfare activity and the Janmabhoomi is an alibi to
benefit the party cadre hoodwinking elected represemtiatives,’ he said and
asked the people to question the results of the earlier two phases of Janmabhoomi
and if the state intends to give the governance as well to the Janmabhoomi

We have posed 100 questions on the
development activities the State claims to have taken up which give s a clear
picture of the malfunctioning of the government, he said.
