According to the six ADCs Co-ordination Committee Manipur, the general body meeting of All Manipur Hill Districts Ex-ADC Members (5th Term ADC Members) was held on September 13 at Council House, Chingmeirong, Imphal under the aegis of Six ADCs Co-ordination Committee, Manipur
The former ADC members in its meeting adopted various resolutions after thorough deliberations.
The meeting decided to urge the state government to halt the said recruitment process until the elected ADCs governments are installed in the six ADCs and cautioned that if the state government insisted on going ahead with the said recruitment process, it will be compelled to take any sorts of measures or means as deemed appropriate to uphold the dignity of the ADCs.
Meeting also unanimously expressed its strong resentment towards the Manipur government for its refusal to table the ADC Bill, 2021 in the last Assembly session.
It also resolved to fully support any kinds of movements launched by the ATSUM and other hill-based civil bodies until the ADC Bill, 2021 is tabled and passed in Manipur Legislative Assembly.
While strongly condemning the arbitrary actions of the speaker of Manipur Legislative Assembly in inducting eight valley MLAs to HAC, which is allegedly unconstitutional, the meeting also urged the state government not to redo such unconstitutional moves in the future.
