Imphal, November 07 2011:
Taking strong exception to the terms of the MoU signed between the State Government and the SHDDC under which it was agreed to create three sub-divisions namely Champhai, T Vaichong and Kangchup Geljang in Sadar Hills West as against one sub-division at Island ad Lhungtin SDC Circle itself, the Sadar Hills East Chiefs' Association has urged the Chief Minister to review the MoU.
In a memorandum submitted to the Chief Minister, the association asserted that Sadar Hills East fulfils all the criteria for creation of two or more sub-divisions with SDC Circles.
The association would not be able to comply with the agreement arrived between SHDDC and the Government to locate sub-divisional headquarters at T Waichong in place of Chalwa, Kangchup Geljang in place of Kangchup and creation of Champhai sub-division which is uninhabited till date.
The association demanded immediate creation of Lhungtin sub-division instead of SDC Circle under Saikul sub-division and creation of SDC circle at Phawoibi under the proposed Island sub-division.
It further demanded to set up sub-divisional headquarters at the existing SDC circle headquarters.
