The demand for change of nomenclature of North Cachar Hills district of Assam raised by militant outfit Dima Halom Daogah (Jewel faction), currently on ceasefire, is being seriously pursued by the state government. A Cabinet sub-committee to look into the matter has been already formed and will submit its report within a month, state government spokesperson Dr Himanta Biswa Sharma said after a Cabinet meeting here yesterday. According to a UNI report, the sub-committee will evaluate the merits and justification of changing the nomenclature of the district, Dr Sharma said. The DHD (J), also known as Black Widow, had included the demand for change of name of the present North Cachar Hills district in its charter of demands while entering into ceasefire with the government last year.
