Bangla Hunt Desk: The Yogi Adityanath Government of Uttar Pradesh is going to take a big decision regarding the upcoming three-tier panchayat elections. The Yogi government is preparing to make major amendments to the Gram Panchayat, Panchayat Samiti and Zila Parishad elections. It is to be noted that the government is going to ban the candidates from contesting in the panchayat elections if they have more than two children for the sake of population control.
Note that the state panchayat minister himself is in favor of this law. Other leaders, including Union Minister of State Sanjeev Balian, have also written to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to enforce the law. According to sources, guidelines are also likely to be issued on educational qualifications. However, the final decision in this regard will be taken by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
According to sources, the candidates will be required to have minimum educational qualifications for the panchayat elections. In Gram Panchayat elections, the minimum qualification for women and reserved class candidates will be 8th class. It is learned that the minimum qualification for Panchayat Samiti and Zila Parishad will be 10th class. A proposal to amend the Panchayat Raj Act in this regard will be brought to the Cabinet soon.
It is to be noted that this law will be implemented before the completion of the preparations for the proposed three-tier panchayat elections in April 2021. Due to the Corona epidemic, no preparations were made for the panchayat elections in Uttar Pradesh on time. State panchayat elections have been postponed. Elections for December 2020 are now scheduled for April 2021.
