NGOs in Chakma Council Welcomed the Council’s Term Extension

Kamalanagar, February 11:Four frontal organizations operating for the welfare of the Chakma Community in Chakma Autonomous District Council, the Mizoram Chakma Student Union, the National Student Union of India (CADC Zone), the Chakma Mahila Samiti and the Central Young Chakma Association in a letter to His Excellency, the Governor of Mizoram, welcomed His Excellency’s decision to extend the term of the current Council to 30th April, which otherwise expires on 10th March 2013.

Earlier on January 29, the Governor of Mizoram, in-exercise of the powers conferred under Paragraph 20BB of the Sixth Schedule to the Constitution of India, in a notification extended the term of the Chakma Autonomous District Council to 30th April in the backdrop of the concern for all the students appearing their HSLC, HSSLC and Three Years Degree examinations which are to commence from February 22 to March 25, 2013. Besides, the delimitation process within the Council has been a profound reason contributing to this decision.

The NGOs in their letter to His Excellency expressed their heartfelt appreciation and thanks, on behalf of all the concerned students of the area, for giving due consideration, the welfare of the student community, while deciding to withhold the MDC General Election to the Council.
