Uttarakhand High Court directs District Magistrate, Nainital to submit a report on block development representatives not given representation in Block Development Council committees

-

Uttrakhand Aug 27(ILNS): The Uttarakhand High Court recently directed the District Magistrate, Nainital to look into the matter and file a report, regarding the elected representatives from certain Block Development Constituencies not being given representation in the Committees constituted by the Block Development Council.

The allegation in the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) is that certain Block Development Constituencies are being subjected to step-motherly treatment in the matter of allocation of funds for execution of development work.

The Division Bench comprising of Justice Manoj Kumar Tiwari and Justice Alok Kumar Verma while considering the PIL observed that Betalghat Block is one of the most backward regions in District Nainital, therefore, the issue raised appears to be of vital public interest.

Sanjay Bhatt, Counsel for the Petitioners contended that the elected representatives from certain Block Development Constituencies are not being given representation in the Committees constituted by the Block Development Council. This, according to the Petitioners, is adversely affecting the persons residing in those constituencies which are unrepresented in the Committees.

“In such a view of the matter, the District Magistrate, Nainital is directed to look into the matter and file a report along with an affidavit within three weeks. List in the week commencing 13.09.2021”, the order reads./ILNS/SS/SNG
