A strange equation in Varca panchayat

GUILHERME ALMEIDA | JANUARY 10, 2021, 12:34 AM IST

This may seem strange, but true. In strongman Bab Churchill’s home village Varca the panchayat is being ruled by the government and not by elected members. Reason: The panchayat has come under the rule of an administrator after the Sarpanch and the Deputy Sarpanch were voted out of office. It’s now 18 days since the two posts had fallen vacant, but the government is in no mood to hold an early election, even though rules prescribe filling up the posts within 60 days. Is Churchillbab aware of the government’s delay in holding the election for the vacant posts? Wait and watch.
