“While upholding its decision taken on 20th December, 2017 in regard to creation of Noklak district, thecCabinet decided that inclusion of Chingmei range villages in Noklak district must first be resolved amicably between Noklak Village Council and Chingmei Village Council before government notification earmarking the boundaries of Noklak District is issued.

“The Cabinet further decided that district inauguration would be done only after the issue was amicably settled,” it informed.
