On 22nd May the Hon’ble Governor of Mizoram Dr. Hari Babu Kambhampati had appointed the leader of MNF Legislature Party Dg. Rasik Mohan Chakma as the CEM of CADC. Dg. Abraham Beirazi Khithie, Additional Deputy Commissioner, Lawngtlai administered the oath of office and secrecy.
Dg. Rasik Mohan Chakma expressed his happiness and gratitude to the State Election Commission for conducting the election smoothly although an unfortunate incident marred the otherwise smooth election.
Emphasizing the importance of 11th CADC, he recalled the celebration of CADC Golden Jubilee and said that the newly constituted District Council marked the entry of CADC into another fifty years. He remarked that the outcome of the recently concluded election was a strong message to the political leaders by the public. Two-thirds of the members of the previous term could not get themselves re-elected. This signifies the desire of the people for good governance and that they are willing to change their representatives if they do not perform. He welcomed the new members to work for the welfare of the people and fulfill the aspirations of the people they represent.
He mentioned that a MNF government is a symbol of good governance, development and responsive to the aspirations of the people. Hence, “the first priority of his government shall be good and inclusive governance”.
Another positive development, he mentioned was the election of Dg. Nirupam Chakma, former Minister & MLA into CADC as a member of the district council. He is the senior most politician and a source of vast experience in the field. His experience shall be a boon for CADC if it could be utilized effectively.
