Port Blair, July 13: The Ex-Adhyaksha, Zilla Parishad South Andaman, Miss V. K. Mariyam Bibi met the Director RD/PRI in his office and apprised him about the grievances of DRM's working in various Panchayat Samities.

She stated that due to the recent notification about the abolition of seven Panchayat Samities in the Islands, the staffs working for a long time will become unemployed. This will not only affect them but will have a major impact on their family too.

The workers have been engaged since a long time and have lot of experience in the work. Keeping this in view, Mariyam requested the Director (RD/PRI) to consider the existing staffs working as DRM to be adjusted in various offices under PRI system. The Director assured that he will look into the matter positively.
