A delegation led by sarpanch Gurmej Thapar met the ADC and claimed that authorities had made a false claim that Dalits registered under job-cards number 1, 12, 21 and 35 were given payments."The government should issue job-cards and assure 200-day employment for poor residents in villages. An inquiry is warranted into the entire incident," Thapar said.
Later, a delegation of Jamsher village residents also met the ADC and asked to arrange employment for people having job-cards else to assure disbursement of unemployment allowance with effect from April 9, 2013.
ADC (development) Harminder Singh said, "We have asked the block development and panchayat officer to inquire into the matter and submit a report. Action will be taken against those found guilty."
