He told the Lt Governor, from the time Panchayati Raj has been implemented, its benefits have been seen coming to the people. On the ground level, development is taking place at a good pace. The Sarpanch said that this time the power that has been given to the Panchayats by the government has never ever been given before. The representatives praised the government for handling and taking care of the progress of the community. Sheikh Muzaffar, President JKPNF said, the public representatives here attached to the villages understand the problems in their villages. Shri Manoj Sinha addressing the panchayat conference said, the 73rd and 74th amendment to the Constitution of India established the Panchayati Raj system.
