Speaking with the media, KVPS and AIDWA leaders demanded that the Minister must apologise the sarpanch. They alleged that Minister Ajay Kumar and other officials didn't follow protocol at a government programme and didn't invite the sarpanch as she belongs to Dalit community. The leaders condemned the Minister for abusing a person, who questioned the protocol issues in the meeting. As per the Panchayat Act, every sarpanch should be invited to the meetings, but in the district, this is not being followed, they pointed out.
