Kamalanagar, April 29, 2023: The 51st CADC Day was observed today in the premises of CADC Secretariat. Dg. Gana Chandra Chakma, Education Officer (P/S) who is in charge Executive Secretary, Chakma Autonomous District Council hoisted the National and CADC Flag followed by the chorus singing of the CADC anthem to mark the occasion.
Dg. Gana Chandra Chakma, in his speech, remembered with gratitude and honour all the founder leaders of CADC like Dg. Kristo Mohan Chakma, Dg. Atul Chandra Chakma, Dg. Hari Kristo Chakma, Dg. Mideya Chakma, Dg. Baneshwar Chakma and Dg. Gaur Nitai Chakma who were instrumental in getting a separate Autonomous Council for the Chakmas of Mizoram out of Pawi-Lakher Regional Council.
He also stressed that there are numerous others who had contributed to the creation of Chakma Autonomous District Council from the beginning but remained unsung due to lack of proper documentation and records.
“People from all sections of the Chakma Society including public, employees and religious leaders have contributed in securing the Council. They had a dream of having their own land in the form of Autonomous Council. To preserve language, culture and for all-round development of the Chakmas, they felt the need for a land of their own,” he added.
During the interim period of the first Executive Committee of the Chakma Regional Council in 1972, the then employees along with the leaders of the Council took the onus upon themselves to transform the Council towards the path of all-round development.
He appealed to all the Heads of Departments, Officers, Employees and others serving under Chakma Autonomous District Council to participate in fulfilling the dream envisaged by the founders of CADC.
Now, the remarkable transformation of CADC can be observed how much it has developed in the last 50 years and hence, we all have the role to play toward its development.
