New Delhi: The demand to implement panchayati system in Delhi’s rural areas is on the rise again. It has come to the fore as the government is mulling over to set up five municipal corporations in the state.

Villagers have slammed the ongoing activities of the government by saying that governments corporation is unable to fulfill their promises and therefore they want their own panchayati system.

Farmers said, “It is an irony for us that we don’t have any agriculture ministry like in other states. There is no assessment for the ruined crops in calamities like floods”. They further accused the government for eliminating the post of Gram Sewak.


Earlier Gram Sewaks used to guide farmers over issues like, production, yield, crop seasons and prevention from diseases. They also used to recommend the government to compensate farmers in case of production loss.

The Chairman of Akhil Bhartiya Kisan Utthan Samiti, Vijendra Yadav, said, “What can be more sadder than this that Panchayat elections have not been held after 1983”.
However, rural committees have placed a demand for elections to end their problems.
