Another hurdle in District Council polls

IMPHAL, Aug 19: As the process of delimitation for the District Councils has been delayed following complaint over the electoral rolls published in January this year on which basis the delimitation was to be effected, the State Cabinet during its meeting today recommended extension of the tenure of the Delimitation Committee for another 45 days.

The Delimitation Committee had been set up for a period of 45 days and during these 45 days, the process of delimitation was supposed to be completed.

However, following complaint over the electoral roll published in January this year as the base for effecting the delimitation, completion of the process has been delayed.

Moreover, as a new electoral roll is to be brought out on August 30 and the already completed delimitation process in Tamenglong, Chura-chandpur and Sadar Hills need to be re-examined, the State Cabinet recommended extension of the tenure of the Delimitation Committee for another 45 days.

Presided over by Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh, today’s Cabinet meeting also recommended convening of the Monsoon session of the State Assembly from October 1.

As to the demand of increasing the ST quota in the Manipur University, the Cabinet meeting decided to exert pressure on the Centre in this regard and amend the existing rules and regulations.
