Clarification on CADC’s status in dealing with Covid-19

Kamalanagar, 5 June, 2020: In the wake of damage being caused to the reputation of Chakma Autonomous District Council due to some people questioning the lack of activism on the part of CADC in the fight against Covid-19 it is being felt to dispel misgivings so created in the minds of the public.

First of all it has to be understood that CADC’s power and function are limited and defined, within the bound of which it exercises its power and function. As for the matter of dealing with containment of Covid-19, it is a subject matter of the State government by virtue of implementation of the Mizoram Epidemic Diseases (Covid-19) Regulations, 2020 and the Mizoram (Containment and Prevention of Covid-19) Ordinance, 2020. CADC cannot act on its whims and fancies disregarding the above mentioned regulations.

To be specific it has come to the cognizance of the CADC authority that question was being raised as to why CADC was not bearing responsibility to dispose waste of the quarantined centres at Kamalanagar when sanitation was its subject. It has been also pointed out that while LADC was rendering the service in the quarantine centres of Lawngtlai why CADC stayed away. It is being clarified that the district authorities who are the authorized persons as per the above regulations did not make any requisition for such service from CADC.

As regards to the question being raised as to why the staff of CADC being not engaged in the service of running the quarantine centres which has been the case in LADC, it is that no requisition for such requirement have been made by the authorized persons.

Notwithstanding the fact about CADC’s status with regards to dealing with Covid-19 pandemic, it has been putting effort to mitigate distress of people affected by the pandemic and coordinating with stakeholders in their effort for containment and prevention of spread of Covid-19.

The MDCs of CADC have been supporting the VLTFs of their constituencies with financial assistance since the beginning. Rs.50,000 was given to CYCA to help them manage the voluntary services in the fight against Covid-19. Subsequently, CADC has sponsored the NGOs to tour the villages of Indo-Bangla border to sensitize and motivate the VLTFs, for which Rs.1 lakh was sanctioned out of the Rs.20 lakhs set aside for Covid-19. CADC has listed the stranded migrant workers which were forwarded to Ministry of Labour and Employment and to the government of Mizoram for relief and to facilitate in evacuation. Rs.2000, to each stranded migrant workers, was sanctioned for transfer to their account as relief out of the Rs.20 lakhs. The stranded students were also listed to understand the scenario and to facilitate in their evacuation if necessary.
