HAFLONG, June 11 - Debolal Gorlosa has been elected Chief Executive Member of the NC Hills Autonomous Council (NCHAC) unopposed today at the session presided over by Protem Chairman Suanthangjem Hrangkhol.
Talking to media-persons after assuming office, Gorlosa assured that the problems being faced by the employees of the Council will be settled on a priority basis. He also said that there have been leakages in the system of revenue collection, which would be properly monitored from now on.
Asked about the road communication woes in the district, Gorlosa stated that his administration will accord top priority to early completion of the road construction works, which would be strictly monitored.
