Instead of blaming Chanka Village, the chairman Chanka village further called upon chairman Yankhum Village to “open his eyes” and observe the rules set by the government for recognition and derecognizing of any villages, adding that he should not address himself as “chairman of Yankhum village council” as the council was yet to be recognized by the government.
