Mr. Sagar said that the government is committed to put in place a 3-tier and vibrant Panchayati Raj System in the state. He said that the government has already ensured empowerment of Panchayati Raj institutions and the subsequent democratic decentralization of powers, which is a landmark step in the political history of the state.
The Minister said that the opposition party has got frustrated by the achievements of the government and now in the state of desperation they are trying to mislead people. He said that it is a recorded history that the developmental projects which that political party left incomplete were completed by the present government without giving any preferential treatment.

Minister of State for R&B, Mr. Javed Ahmad Dar also addressed the gathering and said that the Panchayati Raj representatives should once again repose their faith in the coalition government by voting overwhelmingly in favor of the coalition candidates.
