At the out set the reported resolution taken by the Parliamentary committee of Dima Hasao Autonomous Council held on February 3 at Jatinga to replace the present DCC(I) Sri Nalendra Karigapsa was discussed which was vehemently opposed by the house terming the attempt of replacement of as unconstitutional. They said no parliamentary committee can take any decision against the party. Several congress members express serious concern over the unjust interference of Sri Y L Karna and Sri Rana Khan in Dima Hasao DCC (I) for their personal gains and demanded immediate replacement of both Sri Y L Karna and Sri Rana Khan. Some members did not hesitate to warn that the Dima Hasao DCC(I) would not be responsible, if any thing happen to these duo for their any interference in Dima Hasao DCC(I). The limit of their tolerance has crossed the line so far, the congress men of Dima Hasao are not in mood for any compromise in regards to the congress (I) image in the district.

Talking to the media persons, Sri Hamjanan Langthasa disclosed that this committee has been formed as per party constitution and no body will be spared if found guilty or in any anti party activities, because no body in party is above the party constitution.

Nampui and Moril Massa has been sent to APCC(I) which has no importance as he believes the APCC(I) will never consider their plan since this attempt of so called leaders is unconstitutional.

Sri Depolal Hoaji, Chairman, DHAC appealed to all the members present to extend their co operation and to fight against such anti people forces unitedly so that the Dima Hasao DCC(I) could be strengthened. Some other argued how the newly joined members who have not completed 3 years as congress member could be allowed to claim post of office bearers in congress since the party constitution does not allow any member who have not completed at least 3 years in congress party. Therefore if any such new comer awarded with such important post in the committee will surely destroy the party image as well as party unity.
