Miffed ZPTC, MPP, MPTC members grill Etala

Mild commotion prevailed when the ZPTC members, MPP and MPTC members of both ruling and opposition parties grilled Minister for Finance Etala Rajender regarding their powers in the ensuing Grama Jyothi programme.

The Minister had conducted an orientation programme with the elected representatives on the implementation of the Grama Jyothi programme in Karimnagar on Thursday.

Stage protest

Suddenly, the ZPTC members, MPPs and others rushed to the dais and raised protests demanding their rights in the implementation of the ambitious programme.

Stating that the government was only talking about the grama sarpanches for the effective implementation of Grama Jyothi, they asked “what is our role and what are our funds and duties in the programme”. Later, the Minister pacified them by stating that he would take the matter to notice of the government. The Minister added that they were taking measures to strengthen the local bodies as per the constitutional amendment.
