Members of Maharshi Valmiki Yuvakara Seva Samiti Trust staged a protest by locking up the gram panchayat office at Rammanahalli, Kasaba hobli, on Monday.
The protestors claimed that the gram panchayat was baised and had provided all basic facilities to a neighbouring village but did not make any effort to provide basic facilities to Rammanahalli village.
Members blamed the gram panchayat for not responding to public grievances and for not providing pure drinking water facility to the village.
“There is no proper drainage facility and due to this there is a raise in jaundice, typhoid and dengue in the village. Even the roads are completely damped. Then for what do we need the gram panchayat for?” they questioned.
Vice President Siddu, Secretary Shankar, Aalappa, Raghu, Manju, Madappa and others took part in the protest.
