It is said that the elder of the village is the Sarpanch. But the conditions of the sarpanches in Swarashtra are not all the same. The recent events are proof of that. On the one hand, some sarpanches are begging the government for money for the bills they paid. On the other hand, the situation of some sarpanches is so dire that they are going for labor work. Elsewhere, some are directly planning on suicide. Political observers say there are situations where the sarpanches are on the verge of going bankrupt or even unable to meet their daily needs since they spent their personal money on doing the welfare works in the village with the money they took as debts, and the KCR government is barely releasing any funds to fulfill them.
In the villages, the sarpanches are doing every work ordered by the government at their own expense. They are doing whatever it takes to say that they can adjust with that money when the bills come. But in many places, the sarpanches are left in debt. They are worried about rising debts and falling interest rates due to non-receipt of bills. The rebel flag is being flown in this order. Against this backdrop, the BJP is ready to fight on behalf of the sarpanches in Telangana.
BJP state president Bandi Sanjay is preparing to join hands with the non-partisan Sarpanches as they are on the path of anxiety. The protests are all set to begin in June. Bapughat in Langer House, Hyderabad has become the venue of the protest where the sarpanches will be wearing a black badge for 2 hours and just stand in silence. Bandi is going to plan on putting pressure on the government to pay the bills as it is delaying the disbursement of funds to the gram panchayats.
On the other hand, Sanjay has also planned protests backing the sarpanches across the state with the support of his BJP party. The BJP claims that the Center is giving funds for the development of villages, but the state government is diverting them to other needs. However, TRS sources said that the Center was neglecting to provide funds to the 15th Finance Commission. The TRS leaders want the sarpanches to understand this and have some patience until things fall in place.
