NURMAHALDepartment of rural development and Panchayats has directed Jalandhar deputy commissioner (DC) to act on residents application for electing village sarpanch.

In an official communication to DC, the department said Baina Pur village residents’ representation to Punjab minister of rural development and panchayats dated July 17   is sent to you for necessary action.

  In a representation to Punjab minister of rural development and Panchayats Trip Rajindar Singh Bajwa residents had demanded election of village sarpanch at the earliest saying   that the Punjab Election Commission had declared the office of sarpanch of gram panchayat Baina Pur village as vacant which was reserved for schedule caste. Residents had said that they are suffering difficulties in absence of sarpanch.

The Commission had issued a notification notifying the persons elected as sarpanch from block Nurmahal of the district Jalandhar under section 71 of the Punjab State Election Commission Act 1994 . It says that block has 71 village panchayats out of which 70 villages have elected sarpanchs but office of sarpanch of gram panchayat Baina Pur is vacant.

Nurmahal block development and panchayat office has sent a report in this connection to department of rural development. Report said that office of sarpanch was reserved for schedule caste but there is no schedule castes vote as a result no nomination papers were filed and no election was held.   

Jalandhar additional deputy commissioner (development) had said on December 13 that administration had wrote to chief electoral officer Punjab Election Commission to issue corrigendum in respect of the sarpanch seat of Baina Pur village which was reserved for SC women.

Residents said that they face problems in upgrading Aadhar cards and new cards in absence of village sarpanch.
