Kamalanagar, 16 November, 2021: Dg. Lakhi Dhan Chakma, Member of District Council, Chakma Autonomous District Council was elected today as the new Deputy Chairman in an election held today in the CADC Session Hall. He was the lone contestant to file nomination for the post and was declared elected uncontested.
The post of the Deputy Chairman has been lying vacant since Dg. Anil Kanti Chakma, MDC resigned from the post on 4/10/2021.
Dg. Lakhi Dhan Chakma was elected to the 10th Chakma Autonomous District Council from 14-Longpuighat MDC constituency.
The Chairman before dismissing the Session read out the notification of the Governor dated 1st October 2021 setting aside the order of the Chairman, CADC issued on 20th September, 2021 to disqualify Dg. Rasik Mohan Chakma, then an MDC, now the Chief Executive Member, CADC for a period of 5 years while expressing deep regret for the action so taken without any merit and offered apology for the unnecessary harm so caused. He has attributed the cause for such an unwarranted move to a situation triggered by the then political crisis.
