ATRPFM demands revocation of order constituting Cabinet sub-committee
Source: The Sangai Express

Imphal, August 27 2018: The All Tribal Rights Protection Forum Manipur (ATRPFM) has demanded from the State Government of Manipur to order an immediate revoke to enforcement of the order of August 23, 2018, "vide No.4/14/2017.Hills (Misc.)" with regard to constitution of a new Cabinet Sub-Committee to look into the functioning of Autonomous District Councils (ADCs) in respect of Senapati, Churachandpur and Tamenglong, said a statement of ATRPFM.

According to the ATRPFM, the Secretary of the Tribal Affairs and Hills (TA & Hills), Government of Manipur, issued an order on August 23, 2018 in pursuance of a decision of the State Cabinet to constitute a Cabinet Sub-Committee to look into the functioning of Autonomous District Councils in respect of Senapati, Churachandpur and Tamenglong.

In the statement, ATRPFM said that by virtue of Item No 2 of the Scheduled Matters in the Manipur Legislative Assembly (Hill Areas Committee) Order, 1972 under Article 371C of the Constitution, the power and functioning of district councils in hill areas are absolutely within the purview of the Hill Areas Committee (HAC) and added the formation of a new Cabinet sub-committee to look into the functioning of Autonomous District Councils in respect of Senapati, Churachandpur and Tamenglong is arbitrary, bias and unconstitutional.

According to the ATRPFM, there is Hill Areas Committee (HAC) within Manipur Legislative Assembly to look after the ADCs and the Cabinet has no authority to interfere in the functioning of ADCs in hill areas.

In the statement, it is mentioned that the Chairman and a member that appeared at SI No 3 of the Sub-Committee are non-tribals and they are not qualified to represent tribal people and have no authority to look after the ADCs while adding that the ADC is an autonomous body which comes within the purview of the Hill Areas Committee (HAC).

"However, the members of the Hill Areas Committee remained deaf and dumb in their own statutory rights," the ATRPFM said.

It then "strongly condemned" the alleged action and inaction of tribal ministers and MLAs for their failure to perform their duties and mandated by Article 371C, the Manipur Legislative Assembly (Hill Areas Committee) Order, 1972 and the fifth schedule.

"If the present ministers and MLAs of Manipur tribes do not know their powers and duties, they shall resign gracefully," the ATRPFM said.

It then said that, in accordance with the provisions of Article 371C and the Manipur Legislative Assembly (Hill Areas Committee) Order, 1972 read with the Vth Schedule to the Constitution, "we request the Governor and the Chief minister to consider the above actions as violations of the statutory and constitutional provisions and revoke the order dated August 23, 2018 vide No.4/14/2017.Hills (Misc.), for the ends of justice".

ATRPFM cautioned that, if the State Government fails to revoke the same, ATRPFM along with other tribal civil organisations would take our own course of action, added the statement.
