Gram panchayat members Surekha Jadhav and Sanjay Mane at Haroli in Kolhapur district were disqualified by the Collector in response to a complaint that they have violated the two-child norm. They were asked to resign as they had third child after getting elected four years ago. As they refused to step down, the matter was brought to the notice of the Collector by other members of the panchayat.
