DIPHU, Nov 11 - The Chief Executive Member of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council Tuliram Ronghang informed the House that the executive committee of the Council has approved cancellation of 150 appointments in the Forest Department.
The decision as above was taken as the appointees under reference were engaged by flouting official norms, i.e., without the mandatory approval of the Council and without publishing any advertisement.
CEM Ronghang also stated that the Council had received Rs 10 crore for the Greater Diphu Water Supply Scheme under the Non-Lapsable Central Pool of Resources (NLCPR). Further, another amount of Rs 16 crore is due from the Centre. Work would commence as soon as the funds are received by KAAC, he said.
