Tamil Nadu panchayat auctions two posts for Rs 65 lakh



In an open violation of the country’s de ratic principles and oral ethics, a panchayat in Cuddalore district passed a resolution on Monday to give another term to its former presi nt and AIADMK functionary R Sakthivel after he offered to “donate” Rs 50 lakh for the renovation of a temple in the village and for undertaking other development projects.


The Nadukuppam panchayat near Panruti also resolved to DMDK functionary A Murugan, 36, as its vice-presi nt after he promised Rs 5 lakh for the temple, villagers told TOI.


In a video circulated on WhatsApp, a village elder was seen reading out the resolution to unanimously Sakthivel and Murugan presi nt and vice-presi nt respectively of Nadukuppam panchayat “kee in view the completion of renovation of the Sri Draupadiamman temple and for the betterment of the village”.


The village elders, who ‘auctioned’ the two posts in a meeting on Monday, passed the resolution and directed the two functionaries to pay up the money before December 15. The elders, in turn, promised that no one will file nominations for the posts if the two leaders give the money on time. There are 1,900 vers in the panchayat, which comprises eight wards.


Reacting to the villagers’ decision, Cuddalore district collector V Anbuselvan warned of stern action ag inst the “unde ratic practice” of auctioning the local body posts.

作为对村民的回应,Cuddalore地区收税官V Anbuselvan警告称,要对拍卖地方机构职位的“不做法”采取严厉行动。

Denying that he took part in an auction for the presi nt’s post, 42-year-old Sakthivel said, “It is a plot by the opposition camp, which has launched attempts to tarnish my name and image. I am not a zamindar to offer Rs 50 lakh. I hail from a family of farmers. I wanted to garner support of village elders, who gathered on Monday as I planned to file the nomination papers on Wednesday,” he said.


He has lodged a compnt with Muthandikuppam police station seeking action ag inst “attempts to spread false information” to tarnish his image.
