UDA to approach court over KHADC developments

By Newmai News

SHILLONG, Jan 29 - Former Chief Executive Member of the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) Teinwell Dkhar has stated that the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) would not remain a mere spectator to the current developments in the Council, and would approach the court of law.

Maintaining that the UDA still stands strong with 16 members on its side, Dkhar said, �We will have to take strong steps in the matter because we cannot remain silent when minority rules over majority in a democracy.�

He added: �We are preparing to file a case in the court because we have no other option left to get justice.�

It may be noted that the Meghalaya High Court on Tuesday ruled that the Governor of the State does not have any discretion to withhold appointment of executive members in the KHADC.

The order was passed by Chief Justice Mohammad Rafiq after hearing a writ petition filed by KHADC Chief Executive Member Latiplang Kharkongor.

�A detailed analysis of the Rules of 1951 make it clear that the principles of the Cabinet system of the government are ingrained in its various provisions, especially rule 20, according to which, it is the prerogative of the duly elected CEM of the Council to choose the Deputy CEM and other members of the Executive Committee (EC) of the Council,� the Court noted.
