In his message, Oscar said, “The Panchayat Raj system has taken shape in the country. When the late Rajiv Gandhi was the Prime Minister, he upheld the rights of the people in the Constitution and the Panchayat Raj was strengthened by it. The Gram Panchayat system is the foundation of Indian democracy. India is the second fastest growing nation in the world because of the efforts made by former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. Congress brought about 33 and 50 per cent reservation for women in Panchayats and local bodies respectively. Congress empowered women by reserving 50 per cent seats in Gram Panchayats for them.” He urged the members of GPs to make their Panchayat’s people friendly.
