BJP accuses Pundibari Gram Panchayat Pradhan of corruption and holds protest

Cooch Behar (21 June) : The BJP has accused the Pundibari Gram Panchayat Pradhan of corruption in different schemes and development works against the Pundibari Gram Panchayat, and held a protest. The BJP alleged that many memorandums were handed over to the Panchayat, but there was no benefit out of this.

Meanwhile, the Pradhan has denied all charges. This morning, the BJP workers gathered in Pundibari Gram Panchayat office and surrounded the Pradhan. Police had been deployed at the Pundibari police station to avoid any untoward incident as a result of BJP’s actions.

Ajit Pal, BJP’s convener of Uttar Vidhan Sabha, said that several times the Pradhan was approached with resolving issues such as employment for 100 days, Job Card, etc but no attention was ever given to this. He alleged that corruption has taken place in road construction work in many places and that if no step was taken at the earliest then they would resort to a bigger opposition.

Meanwhile, Pundibari Gram Panchayat’s Pradhan Noor Islam said that he will inform the Block Officer about BJP’s demands and that the allegations of corruption are all baseless.
