Vimukti Charitable trust® organized training on Gram Sabha/ Ward Sabha to the community leaders at VCT center Pothnal on 28th of April 2019 to deliberate and seek a way forward to strengthen and to voice out to get benefits for their respective Gram Panchyath. The Workshop was attended by 122 community leaders from 20 pockets of our working area. Mrs. Jecintha Lok Manch capacity builder welcomed the participants; Mr. Charlie campaign facilitator was the Resource person who enlightened community leader the importance of Gram Sabhas (GS) of Village Panchayaths and Ward Sabhas (WS) of Municipalities are envisaged as for a of direct democracy where citizens directly participate in taking decisions regarding local administration and development.

Further he stressed saying, most of the voters are not aware of the fact that each voter is a member of the GS/WS of the ward in which he or she is registered as a voter. Attendance in GS/ WS meetings is on declared. The forum of direct democracy is gradually getting degraded into a ritualistic meeting to satisfy the legal mandate. In the long run it will erode the faith in decentralized governance and may pose a threat to the basic principles of participatory democratic governance. In such a situation it becomes the unavoidable responsibility of the Central Govt. and State Govt. to strengthen the GS/WS. Finally he briefed the power, functions and responsibilities of GS/WS to the point answering the queries and the doubts of the participants. Mrs. Nagarthna VCT staff nurse proposed the vote of thanks
