Chakma Council Dismisses The Apprehension Of MCSU and YCA

Kamalanagar, 10 July, 2016: Chakma Autonomous District Council dismisses the apprehension expressed by Mizoram Chakma Student Union and Young Chakma Association for having made about 40 appointments on contractual and MR basis as published in the Vanglaini (Issue dated 9/7/2016).

All the appointments so made so far are either on master roll or contractual basis. Making appointment on contractual and master roll basis, from time to time, according to needs, is a normal practice of any government. Such appointments are very temporary in nature and are done for time being. For instance some 11 persons have been engaged on master roll basis as sweepers for a pay of Rs.3000/- per month to maintain cleanliness of Kamalanagar town. 2 persons have been engaged on MR fixed basis in the ITI and Dawchuni cum Mineral water plant. Labourers under PWD are engaged from time to on the basis of requirement for a specific time period as and when there are civil works. The concerns of the NGOs are all unfounded.

The CEM, CADC Dg. Kali Kumar Tongchangya who have assumed office from 29/9/2015 took over charge with a huge burden from his predecessor because of indiscriminate appointments, regularization of services and promotions done before he took over. Given the circumstance, CADC have been observing austerity with regards to its spending in order to achieve fiscal stability.
CADC deserves appreciation for the so many achievements it has made within this very short time, since September 2015 when the incumbent CEM took over. To name a few, Kamalanagar Town roads are being blacktopped, Kamalanagar College approach road blacktopped, solar power plants installed in CADC offices, Dawchuni cum Mineral water plant being set up, Kamalanagar Town Bus service being introduced, Driving school resumed and Skill Training Programme introduced.
