🔥Shiriyar GP president stages dharna | Mangalore NYOOOZ: Jyoti, president of Shiriyar Gram Panchayat, staging a dharna in front of the Zilla Panchayat office in Udupi on Tuesday.
more-inJyoti, president of the Shiriyar Gram Panchayat, staged a dharna in front of the Udupi Zilla Panchayat here on Tuesday alleging that there was a conspiracy to dissolve the gram panchayat and remove her from her post.
The taluk panchayat and zilla panchayat should press for legal action by SEC against the absentee gram panchayat members, she said.
Instead, the Udupi Taluk Panchayat had recommended to the Udupi Zilla Panchayat that the gram panchayat be dissolved, though the matter was not on the agenda of the Taluk Panchayat meeting.
But some gram panchayat members could not digest the fact that a Dalit woman had become the president.
