In response to DMC chief executive officer’s clarification, reported in local dailies, that advisors had issued a circular based on his directive, the DMC allottees’ welfare committee Thursday said his recent statement contradicted to what he had previously stated in a local daily.
According to a statement issued by welfare committee secretary Wilson, the CEO, upon highlighting the issue by the committee members, had maintained that sole authority to issue such circular was his sole prerogative, and that advisors had no authority to issue such circular without his knowledge. The CEO also assured that he would sit with advisors to settle the issue amicably, they stated. The allottees said, to their utter surprise, the advisors replied that there would be no “back show” on the issue.
The welfare committee said that a circular issued by DMC advisors to execute deed of agreement was similar to earlier terms and conditions, agreed upon between allottees and DMC authorities, and contained certain anomalies.
The allottees also stated that upon highlighting the issue, the CEO feigned ignorance about the matter and requested the committee members to refrain from highlighting the issue through the media and also not to submit their representation to the deputy commissioner and other higher-ups as he was totally unaware of the circular being issued by him.
Meanwhile, underlining that the issue of who had the legal authority to issue was not important, the committee said the larger issue lay with the contents of the circular, which, it described, was “illegal, unreasonable and arbitrary.” “Therefore, the stand of DMC’s welfare committee is to see that the CEO revokes the said circular because since the inception of the then town committee, 56 years ago, no drastic change has been forced upon the allottees as the present terms and conditions are valid and still stands,” the welfare committee stated.
