With the announcement of Panchayati Raj elections, the political arena has become ready in Haryana. The political temperature of the state will remain high for more than a month. The first phase of elections will be held on November 2, while the second phase is also set to be held by November 15. Congress will not fight this election on symbol. INLD and AAP have decided to fight on Zilla Parishad election symbol. BJP-JJP will soon decide to contest the election on the symbol.
This election is a question of nose for the coalition government. The government would like to capture most of the seats of 22 Zilla Parishad chairman. Only the elected members have to elect the Zilla Parishad chairman, so the BJP-JJP would like to win more and more Zilla Parishads. 143 There will be a lot of effort among the parties for the chairmanship of the Panchayat Samiti, even if the parties do not contest the election of the Panchayat Samiti members on the symbol.
The Zilla Parishad, Panchayat Samiti Chairman and Sarpanches play an important role in the development of rural areas. The central and state governments send about 70 percent of the budget directly to the panchayats. Only 20 and 10 percent of the budget comes to the Zilla Parishad and Panchayat Samiti. The Sarpanch influences the rural voters by getting most of the work done in the panchayats. After that, the most association with the people remains with the Zilla Parishad and then the Panchayat Samiti member.
Fire test for rural MLAs
The election of Sarpanch, Panch and Panchayat Samiti member is not contested on party symbol only because it is a brotherhood election. In this, many workers of the same party enter the election. Even brothers and relatives fight against brother. The leaders do not interfere much in this so that the social fabric is not disturbed, because the candidates who are defeated in this election are taken out in the assembly elections. This election is a litmus test for rural MLAs. The condition and direction of his 2022 assembly elections will be decided to a large extent by this. The trend of rural voters will also come to the fore.
