So today (Tuesday) we observed a day-long Satyagraha Deeksha against the neglect and also a kind of conspiracy against the Congress Local Body elected representatives."
"We have started today, we are going to fight the Government on a serious note on this issue of neglect and weakening of Panchayati Raj Institutions and Urban Local Bodies and their elected representatives," he added.
