Muktsar, August 30

Even after eight months of the polls, the previous panchayat of Kolianwali village has reportedly not yet handed over the charge to the new one.

Amarjit Kaur, wife of senior SAD leader-cum-SGPC member Dyal Singh Kolianwali, was the sarpanch for the previous two consecutive terms.

As per rules, the previous panchayat has to handover the charge to the new one just after the poll results are announced and the officials concerned are responsible to complete the task.

Congress’ Jagsir Singh, new sarpanch, said: “I have requested the DC, SDM and other senior officials concerned, but the previous panchayat has not yet handed over the charge to me. I have the panchayat quorum too, but still nobody is supporting me. We’re now maintaining the record in new registers.”

“This village falls in Lambi Assembly segment and former CM Parkash Singh Badal had sanctioned huge funds. The previous panchayat seems to fear that the records will unearth some scam.”

However, Amarjit Kaur’s son Parminder Singh Kolianwali said: “We had handed over the record to the sitting sarpanch after the poll. If still there is some record not given to him, we will check it.”

Jaswant Singh, BDPO, Malout, said: “I’ve issued a notice to the previous panchayat.”
