Haokip, State Adviser and Christina Lalrinpuii, State Executive Member called on State Governor at his office on Date 6th August, 2015 over Chawngte incident, yet-to-held VC election in Sinlung Development area, and state financial problem. They submitted Memorandum to the Governor.
BJP Mizoram Pradesh said in its memorandum that they condemned the unjustly recruitments of CADC employees. “Since the Congress led CADC could not deliver good governance, we demand an immediate dissolution of the CADC and pronounce fresh election at the earliest”, they said.
“We strongly request compensation payment of fare amount to the bereaved family of the deceased person who died at Chawngte during the Bandh protested by the student union”, they added.
Regarding Sinlung Development Council areas, where Council & Local Council election was not held along with other parts of the state Village on 30th April, 2015, due to insurgency problems, they requested the Governor to propose election for the 31 village councils at an early date.
The State Government had dissolved the 31 village Councils and formed an advisory board in which the ruling congress party took the lion’s share, they added.
The state BJP also asked the Governor to help solve the problem of Mizoram by requesting the CPWD to formulate standard working months as per the rainfall conditions of each state, citing that “Mizoram is having around 3000mm rainfall per annum during monsoon season (which is approximately 6 working months in a year) whereas, state and U.T like Delhi and Rajasthan have 9-10 months working season. In general, there is 4-5 months difference in working months in a year.”
Relating to financial problem, PMGSY funds which was usually sent directly to MIRDA is now routed through the state treasury which is a stumbling block to the contractor in bringing delay in payment of bills and completion of works, the state BJP apprised the Governor, mentioning two prominent cases in its memorandum.
55crs was released on September, 2014 to the state treasury and the state treasury then released to MIRDA on February, 2015 keeping a gap of 5 months, and 9crs was released to the state treasury on April, 2015 and the same fund was released to MIRDA only on July, 2015, it stated.
“On examining the above two cases we come to know that the concern departments are forced to delay payment of bills to the contractor due to the long process of state treasure playing the part of delaying the funds for which it was sanctioned to 3-6 months which is hampering the development of the state and its contractors”, it maintained.
