ATSUM warns govt on ADC election

TMB Report

IMPHAL: The All Tribal Students Union Manipur (ATSUM) has warned of initiating series of agitation along with other tribal civil voluntary organisations if the state government fails to retract its resolution to postpone the Autonomous District Council (ADC) election this year.

Condemning the state Cabinet consent to deferment of the election which was published in local dailies on March 4, a released by General Secretary of ATSUM, Seiboi Haokip appealed the state government to conduct the election in June this year, which is the timing for conducting the last ADC election.

The released also questioned the intention of resolution adopted by the Hill Area Committee (HAC) on January 16 to postpone the election on November while stating that party less system election recommended by the HAC is not acceptable.
