Karnataka plans to scrap taluk panchayats; Govind Karjol,Dy CM
Bagalkote: Inaugurating the Jan Sevak conference, Govind Karjol said panchayat system bought by Ramakrishna Hegde was a far-sight model for India. When Veerappa Moily became CM, the system was over estimated with ignorants. In Hegde’s Panchayat imagination there were 2 systems to develop rural areas, Zilla parishad and Mandal panchayat. He implemented this system in the entire nation. When PM Rajiv Gandhi set a team to study the system, Veerappa Moily destroyed this system. Now it has 3 system. We want to eliminate the taluk panchayat. Final decision to abolish it will be taken soon.
