Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) CEM Tuliram Ronghang on Wednesday announced that the council will receive direct funding from the centre with regard to all central schemes.

Briefing the media, CEM Ronghang said that it had been a long-standing demand of the Karbi people that funds should be directly remitted by the central government to the Council to do away with the needless delay in their release by the State Secretariat.
Earlier, the matter could not be resolved at the track of signing of MoU in 1995 and the MoS in 2011. However, the MoS provided for the amendment of Art 280 to bring the council under the purview of the Finance Commission of India. And now, after our relentless efforts, the centre has agreed to provide direct funds for all centrally funded schemes to KAAC.” The schemes include NLCPR, AIBP, MoS package, Niti Ayog, 5th Finance Commission and other schemes funded by the center in the sixth schedule areas of northeast. The CEM added.
The CEM also said an account has been opened to receive the funds as per the direction of the centre.
Attacking the opposition for misguiding the people of Karbi Anglong on imposing of Panchayati Raj system in the hill district by the BJP government, the CEM said that the MIS in the government website maintains a uniform system throughout India including Sixth Schedule areas as “Gram Panchayat (GP)” and its head as “Sarpanch”. However, in the sixth schedule areas, their is a Village Development Council (VDC) in place of GP and it is headed by a Chairman in place of “Sarpanch”.
“The same is the case in regards to other northeastern states like like Mizoram, Nagaland and Meghalaya where the government MIS report is factually incorrect. We have written twice to the Government for correction of the data in the website.” The CEM said.
The CEM also warned those people with vested political interest to refrain from raising such issues with intent of stoking social tension in the hill district of Karbi Anglong. CEM Ronghang later congratulated his team, the members of Team Karbi Anglong and the people of Karbi Anglong on this achievement resulting in the new development in funding of the KAAC.
