All Assam Deputy Commissioner’s conference concludes
Diphu, Aug. 23 (EMN): The two-day-long All Assam Deputy Commissioner’s conference concluded at Arboretum-cum-Craft Centre, Matipung on Monday.
After the end of the conference Chief Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma said, “Starting from 11 am on Sunday till 4 pm on Monday, we were able to conclude the DC’s conference, which was attended by Ministers, Commissioners, Secretary, Chief Secretaries and DCs from all districts of Assam including Principal Secretary and Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council to work out plans for development of Assam”.
“The purpose of the conference was to determine what development works have to be taken and which works need to be completed through strict monitoring in the next six months. Our main concern was what we can do about the land records. Many people have no land documents, many cannot transfer land from father to son. In order to ease the problem, we have come up with a new mission. It is to make it easier for people so that they do not need to go to the DC office or come to the Secretariat office. By portal system the general public can do self certification”, CM said.
CM Dr. Sarma also informed that discussion was done on timely completion of Central government-aided schemes. The coordination of civil administration and law and order was also discussed, wherein it was decided that the police after arresting a drug addict need to provide rehabilitation, which is to be done by civil administration.
The developmental schemes of every department in presence of concerned ministers and high-level officials were properly discussed. The next DC’s conference will be held at Tezpur after a six months interval, DC and SP conference will be held every 6 months and joint conference of DC’s and SP’s will be held in Guwahati, he announced.
On being asked about the peace accord to be signed with the six armed organisations of Karbi Anglong, the CM said, “All necessary arrangements for the signing of the peace accord have been handed over to the Central government. The signing of the peace agreement will be with the Central government”.
Regarding the Autonomous State issue the CM said, “This matter does not come into the peace accord. We are discussing the matter with the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC). The KAAC authority has been submitting a memorandum to New Delhi. This matter is being discussed between KAAC, state government and New Delhi”.
On the matter of ‘give and take policy’ adopted during the Chief Minister’s level meeting by Assam and Meghalaya government in regard to Block-1 and Block-2 areas of Karbi Anglong bordering Meghalaya, the CM said, “This matter has not been discussed in the conference. We have taken up 6 points for solving the border issue with the Meghalaya government. We have not taken Block-2 and Langpih part and those critical areas. We have taken the easier parts in the discussion”.
On the Karbi Anglong-Nagaland inter-state boundary, the CM said, “Everything is peaceful. We need to co-exist and not encroach on each other’s territory”.
