At a time when unemployment problem has surfaced as a burning question in the state and no sincere effort of the government has come to sight regarding the solution of unemployment of the highly educated youths of the state, some officials are given charges of more than three offices in the district of Dima Hasao who cannot attend or address the public at the same time in all the offices resulting to public harassment and encouragement to corruption.

There has been a longstanding a demand of the people of Dima Hasao district at least in some important posts like Deputy Commissioner and Principal Secretary of N. C. Hills Autonomous Council should not be given to one person but the government never pays any heed to their demand.

Now also the Government of Assam has given the charge of Deputy Commissioner and Principal Secretary, NCHAC to Sri Dilip Borthakur denying the public demand.
Therefore it has become the need of ho
