HAFLONG, Jan 29 - Following the resignation of Subrata Thaosen, Chairman of the NC Hills Autonomous Council yesterday, the emergent session of the Council, scheduled for today, to move a �No Confidence Motion� against Niranjan Hojai, CEM, NCHAC, was called off.
Meanwhile, 16 MACs met Governor PB Acharya, who was here at Haflong to attend the 55th general assembly of the Hmar Students� Assembly, and submitted a memorandum to him today.
The memorandum stated that the resignation of Thaosen on the eve of the emergent session of the Council clearly reflects mala fide intent, given the timing of the resignation. It was clearly intended to derail the democratic process, it stated.
The memorandum stated that as the appointment of a Protem Chairman of the Council is of utmost importance for conducting the business in the emergent session of the Council, and since even the MACs of the ruling party are also seeking appointment of a Protem Chairman, there should not be any difficulty from any other quarter in doing so. Moreover, as the agenda of emergent session is of serious and urgent nature, such an appointment cannot be delayed further.
The memorandum also suggested the name of Ngamrothang Hmar, MAC and former Chairman of the NCHAC, to act as the Protem Chairman.
Talking to media-persons, the Governor assured that the crisis would be solved at the earliest. When asked about the future of the NCHAC, he said the Council would be functioning very soon and pending salaries of the Council employees would also be cleared soon.
