Kamalanagar, January 26, 2023: Dg. Kali Kumar Tongchangya, Chairman, Chakma Autonomous District Council unfurled National Flag on the occasion of celebration of 74th Republic Day of India, organized in the premises of CADC Secretariat, Kamalanagar.
Accentuating the importance of the day, he recalled Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar the architect of the Constitution of India.
Dg. Kali Kumar Tongchangya in his address appealed to the leaders, senior members and officers to refresh the minds of the youths who are easily swayed by the naysayers and fake news. He urged the youths to make use of social media for productive and beneficial purpose and refrain from such destructive engagement.
He implored the youth that instead of indulging in negativity, to focus on higher studies and target for civil services like Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Police Service (IPS) and Indian Foreign Service (IFS) which are in dire need in our society. The appeal comes in the backdrop of rampant and unrestricted use of social media especially WhatsApp in the recent time to criticize the Executive Committee of 10th Chakma Autonomous District Council.
However, he remarked that despite the unfriendly geographical location of the Chakma Autonomous District Council which has been the hurdle for the pace of development of the Council, it is still making progress in its way. He mentioned that due to road connectivity in the Council, accessibility has become easier. He also mentioned that we have our own religious leaders who otherwise had to come from Burma. There is one meditation centre at Kamalanagar which also signify our progress in the field.
He further mentioned that though the 10th Chakma Autonomous District Council went through thick and thin in this term and witnessed five (5) Chief Executive Members (CEMs), yet the flagship programmes like SEDP and others did not get affected. He also referred many Central Schemes like Jal Jeevan Mission under which free water connection is being provided in remote villages.
He recalled that in the term of 10th Chakma Autonomous District Council, three members of District Council (MDCs) have their lives. They are Dg. Pranab Kumar Chakma who died due to heart attack and Dg. Mohesh Boran Chakma and Dg. Charan Singh Chakma who lost their lives in a tragic car accident recently.
In the closing note, he appealed to the officers to uphold the Rule of Law.
