Collector writes to women local body representatives

Staff Reporter

Collector Anshul Mishra has written to woman local body representatives in the district asking them not to let their male family members participate in official meetings and functions instead of them.

In the letter dated February 15, Mr.Mishra said there were complaints of male relatives of elected women representatives participating in official meetings instead of women. “This is regrettable and against the Constitution of India. You should participate in official meetings of your local body, public functions and government functions in your capacity as elected local body representative instead of letting your son or husband to take your place,” Mr.Mishra said.
