The Bharatiya Janata Party-Andhra Pradesh Panchayatraj wing convener Rokkam Suryaprakash on Wednesday asked the State government to scrap the Janmabhoomi Committees with immediate effect, alleging injustice was being done to legitimate beneficiaries in government schemes.

“Members of the committee are involved in large-scale corruption in selection of beneficiaries for all government schemes. The panchayatraj system is being ruined at the grassroots level due to the domination of the Janmabhoomi committees. The Centre is releasing huge funds for the development of rural infrastructure but this is not being highlighted by the State,” Mr. Suryaprakash said.

He said he would submit a detailed report on issues faced by Srikakulam district to the BJP-AP manifesto committee which would be functional soon.
