MARGHERITA, May 10:
On Wednesday, more than 1000 people of Aagbandha Bengali Gaon under Makum Pathar gaon panchayat of 124 no Margherita constituency staged dharna and expressed their anger against Mampi Singh Dutta, president of Makum Pathar village, Margherita for corruption, rude behaviour and arrogance.

The protesters shouted various slogans and the local residents of Aagbandha Bengali Gaon said that Mampi Singh Dutta is a member of ward no 10 and after getting the highest number of votes from this village she could become president of Makum Pathar gaon panchayat. But, since she took charge as a president, her slang words and rude treatment towards everyone who comes to Makum Pathar gaon panchayat office has become a common affair.

A few months ago, Mampi Singh Dutta tried to grab the land of a poor Adivasi man at 3 no Makum Pathar area, but after seeing the public protest, she apologised. Still, her rude behaviour and arrogant attitude has not changed, said a local resident of Aagbandha Bengali village.

Hundreds of families in this village have been deprived of PMAY scheme, ration cards, Orunodoi scheme and other schemes, for which the local residents of Aagbandha Bengali village have demanded the state chief minister and Margherita MLA Bhaskar Sharma to immediately terminate Mampi Singh Dutta from her post at the earliest, otherwise in the coming panchayat and Lok Sabha polls, the locals stated that they shall not cast their votes.

Meanwhile, this correspondent tried to contact the president of Makum Pathar gaon panchayat, but she could not be contacted.
