Officer taken to task for not providing proper information


The incident took place in a function organised to distribute cheques to the physically disabled persons at the Zilla Panchayat premises on Monday.

Ms. Nagamani had no answer to a question posed by Ms. Rathnamma. The president asked the official as to the number of beneficiaries in the district under three per cent grants of panchayats.

Zilla Panchayat members Mangamma and Chowdeshwari too were interested in eliciting the information from the official.

However, Ms. Nagamani said the list of beneficiaries will be prepared and submitted shortly to which the president and members expressed displeasure.

“How can the function be organised to distribute cheques without the list”, Ms. Rathnamma asked. She questioned as to why was assistance being given only to a few persons.

Though Ms. Nagamani said that a total of Rs. 20.15 lakh will be distributed to the beneficiaries, she failed to give the exact number of them.

Taluk-wise figures would be provided, Ms. Nagamani said.

The programme was concluded amidst the people’s representatives taking the officials to task.
