Jaipur: Exuding confidence that the party
will emerge the winner in the panchayat polls beginning
tomorrow, the ruling Congress in Rajasthan today promised to
devolve substantial powers to the Panchayati Raj institutions
in the state.

All round development of villages, granting funds to
panchayats and imparting more functional powers to them would
be the first priority of the Congress government in Rajasthan,
PCC Vice-President Chandrabhan told a press conference here.

Claiming that the Congress would get landslide victory in
the panchayat polls, he said, the party`s policies and
programmes were strong enough to defeat the rival candidates.
