Upset over the decision of Directorate of Panchayats (DoP) to transfer panchayat secretary Sushant Naik recently, Curti-Khandepar villagers have demanded revocation of the particular transfer order.
Addressing a press conference, on Friday, Roque Dias, Banudas Naik, Salim Mulla and others alleged that the transfer of the secretary within 8 months is politically motivated, and added that sincerity of the secretary was becoming an hindrance to the panch members with vested interests. “After several demands, the panchayat had got a full-time secretary, and he was working sincerely for the welfare of the people. There was no complaint from the locals about the secretary. His bonding with the people and his sincere nature may be the main reason for his transfer,” they said.
“He was studying the matter deeply before clearing the files, and that had become hurdle for many panch members with vested interests, and considering it he has been transferred,”Dias alleged.
In this regard, the locals have written to the block development officer, panchayat director, sarpanch of Curti-Khandepar panchayat and Governor demanding revocation of the transfer order of the secretary within 30 days’ time.
The secretary has been transferred to the panchayat of Tivrem-Orgao.
