Pithoragarh: 27 July, 2015
Villagers of Gartil village of Thal sub-division of Pithoragarh district today staged a dharna demanding shifting of the newly opened Thal sub-divisional office in deserted buildings of the village.
Villagers said the buildings constructed in the village during the UP rule in 1995 were now damaged and the deserted buildings should be utilised to house the Thal sub-division office.
The then state government had constructed several departmental buildings for daily development in the village, but due to the lacklustre approach of the government, the buildings were not even used for a day and were decaying.
“We urge the government to house the Thal sub-division office in these buildings and use accordingly other remaining ones,” said Puran Singh Bhain- sora, a villager.
The villagers threate- ned to take to streets if the administration failed to utilise the buildings.
“The village is well connected by road and is only at a distance of 3 kilometer from Topwn town of Thal and can house the Thal sub-division office easily,” the villager said.
