To deal with "non-performers", the Haryana Government will table the "right to recall" Bill during the Assembly session, which resumes tomorrow after the last session was suspended in view of the rising Covid-19 cases.

INLD proposes Bills to guarantee MSP

  • INLD legislator Abhay Chautala has submitted three private member Bills on agriculture to the Speaker for tabling these in the Assembly
  • The Bills propose punishment of not less than three years' imprisonment and fine for procurement below MSP

Sources say the "right to recall" will be applicable to sarpanches and panchayat samiti and zila parishad members. As per the procedure, 50 per cent of the members of a ward must sign a draft to initiate the proceedings after which it has to be passed by the two-thirds majority. Following this, the sarpanch or the member will be removed.

The sources say the government will also table another Bill, which will grant 50 per cent reservation to women in the panchayat poll. The government is keen on passing the Bill before the next panchayat elections, which are due in February next year. The reservation will be done in wards on odd-even basis.

The Bill also proposes to give 8 per cent reservation to Backward Classes (A) category for the post of sarpanch.
