Karigapasa expresses concern over antiparty acts

18 Mar 2012 - 12:38am | Anup Biswas

Sri Nalendra Karigapsa, President, Dima Hasao DCC (I) while expressing his grave concern over the antiparty activities of a section of so called congress man appealed all the Congress members including the leaders to be united and to thwart the evil design of these so called congress man.

Sri Karigapsa was addressing a meeting held at Rajiv Bhawan on Friday in connection with the felicitation ceremony of Youth Congress leaders who have been elected in recently concluded youth congress election.

He said right from 1952 the Dima Hasao DCC(I) formerly known as N C Hills DCC (I) has been committed to the people of Dima Hasao for the all round development of the district and also done remarkable development in all fronts but during last few years particularly this term of Executive Committee of present Dima Hasao Autonomous Council, development has come to standstill. The people of Dima Hasao have seen four Chief Executive Members of Dima Hasao Autonomous Council within this term. This is only because of disunity among the so called congress leaders in DHAC. DCC(I) President said these (without naming any particular person) so called congress leaders are all the time creating disharmony and disturbances among congress party instead of doing any developmental works in the district. He further disclosed that two parties comprising these so called congress leaders of Dima Hasao have left for Delhi and Guwahati to convince AICC and APCC leaders against the Dima Hasao DCC(I) and to dislodge the present executive committee of Dima Hasao DCC(I) this way or that way.

There fore Sri Karigapsa appealed all the congressmen of Dima Hasao to be vigil against the subversive design of such so called leaders and to save the district from further deterioration.
