Both the villages unanimously want to have the status of gram panchayat rather than a municipal committee, he said.The government formed a committee on the basis of public sentiments, while Dadri was given the status of a district and Badhra as a sub-division, and now CM Manohar Lal Khattar has decided to convert both of them into major cities, according to Kamal Gupta, minister of urban affairs.I will alert the CM of Badhra area of the whole situation and try to fulfill their demands if villagers want to have the development proposals submitted by the gram panchayat instead of the municipal commission, he assured.
