Uttarakhand / New Tehri : The protest of the village heads continued

For the past nine days, the village heads sitting on a dharna in Bhilangana block headquarters for the 12-point demands, performed a havan and demanded appropriate action from the government on the demands of the village heads. The village heads held a dharna by locking the main gate of the block headquarters office. Under the leadership of village head organization president Dinesh Bhajanyal, since July 1, the agitating village heads for their demands continued on Saturday as well. The head organization president said that even after a lapse of nine days, no action has been taken by the government on the demand of village heads. He called the priest at the dharna site on Saturday and got him to do a havan-yagya. And demanded the immediate disposal of all the demands from the government. At the same time, the village heads warned the government that their displeasure might overwhelm the government in the upcoming assembly elections. Organization Secretary Veerpal Bisht said that since last one year, the government is giving only blank assurances on the demands of the village heads. Said governments were constantly engaged in weakening the panchayats, which is not proper in the interest of the state and the people. Said the protest will continue till the demands are not met.
