The appeal came in when a delegation of All Arunachal Pradesh Panchayati Raj Coordination Committee (APPRCC) headed by its chairman Sushil Nalo and secretary Sangha Tajik called on him at his office on Sunday regarding devolution of three functions – finance, function and functionaries to the panchayats, official sources said on Monday.
During the discussion, Tuki said that since the Panchayat is a constitutional body, the devolution of power to the Panchayats is mandatory as per Article 243 of Indian Constitution.
The Chief Minister also directed the departments concerned to purchase vehicles for zila parishad chairmen by hundred percent funding from government immediately, besides assuring to provide rupees one crore fund to each zila parishad to meet some urgent development need and fill up some critical gaps, the sources said.
