Joining the boycott to the election to the Manipur (Hill areas) District Council, the Paomei Naga Union of Senapati district has reportedly served notice to contesting candidates in the area under its jurisdiction to retire from the candidature on or before the June 2.
The notices were served to the candidates as per resolution of a meeting of the union held on May 26 last, the report said.
The union asked the candidates to retire from contesting the election and said the union would not be responsible for any untoward incident to those who defy the diktat.
Mention may be made that after the election in Naga dominated Chandel district was held amidst the boycott and bandh called by several Naga based bodies, civil bodies in Ukhrul and Tamenglong district had already announced district wide bandhs in their respective districts on the day of polling on June 2 next, the second phase of the MDC poll.
State government has decided to use central security forces only in the second phase poll which would be conducted in a total of 184 polling stations extending across 30 ADC constituencies in three ADCs of Ukhrul, Senapati and Tamenglong district.
Meanwhile, re-polling to 21 polling stations of the first phase, one in Chandel district, 14 in Churachandpur and six in Sadar hill district was conducted peacefully without any untoward incident.
On the other hand, with government ready to go ahead with the constitution of the six district councils in five hill districts, a committee of officers to decide on the devolution of power to the ADC which would revive its function has been formed.
The committee of officers chaired by state chief secretary was formed following a cabinet decision held on Friday, official said today.
The Cabinet also thoroughly deliberated on the matter of delegation of power to the ADCs and decided to defer the matter to a committee to recommend the powers to be delegated to the ADCs.
The committee will identify the powers to be delegated to the ADCs and the sectors which can be put under the ADCs control. Commissioners of finance, rural development, hills and planning are the members of the committee.
The committee will also identify financial allocation, rural development programmes and developmental and welfare schemes under the tribal development department to the ADCs, the source added.
