     Haflong :- The fourth Assembly Session of the North Cachar Hills Autonomous Council (NCHAC) was held at council legislative hall today. Addressing all members of the house, Chairperson Ranu Langthasa began the session with questions placed.

    During the session it was unanimously agreed to withdraw the constitutional amendment bill of 2012, regarding the previous EC decision on extension of the village council in Dima Hasao dist. that was earlier proposed and submitted for approval of the governor.

    This decision was recently taken at the Executive Committee meeting held at the CEM’s conference hall stating the ground that this constitution was contradictory to the sixth schedule provisions in the district and reflected the provisions of the panchayat raj in Dima Hasao. The decision taken was placed and passed during the session held.

    Another resolution was passed regarding compulsory outfit for all office employees under the administrative control of NCHAC on every Monday from 4 November next onwards, non compliance of which may even lead to deduction of one month salary.

    Other questions raised by the Haflong MAC Daniel Langthasa included issues on Gaon Panchayat Development Plan, setting up of detention camp for those not registered under NRC, recruitment of the grade III and IV posts under various departments, electoral roll of the village council, shifting of Girls’ Higher secondary school and whether any resolution taken in regards to citizenship amendment bill.

    The queries were attended stating that there can be no resolution adopted in regard to CAB as yet since there has been no clarification from the state or the central government. CEM Debolal Gorlosa stated, “Rest assured that no decision will be taken compromising the interest of the people of this district and if setting up of detention camp risks jeopardize of this land, we shall rebuke it, but there has been no statement from the government about this as it is in discussions only”.
