‘Sanc­tion pros­e­cu­tion against guilty prad­hans’

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Uttarpradesh -

LUC­KNOW: The state gov­ern­ment has di­rected dis­trict mag­is­trates to sanc­tion pros­e­cu­tion against all the vil­lage prad­hans/ deputy vil­lage prad­hans who have been found guilty of mis­con­duct as pub­lic ser­vants dur­ing vig­i­lance or other in­quires. A cir­cu­lar sent by sec­re­tary, pan­chay­ati raj, Ma­hen­dra Kumar a few days ago in this re­gard tells DMs to ar­range ini­ti­a­tion of court pro­ceed­ings against guilty vil­lage chiefs. “This has been brought to the gov­ern­ment’s no­tice that the DMs are not able to take a call on sanc­tion for pros­e­cu­tion,” the cir­cu­lar says. The cir­cu­lar has quoted a num­ber of pro­vi­sions to drive the point home that DMs could sanc­tion pros­e­cu­tion.
