Dimapur, August 1 (MExN): The Dimapur District GBs Association (DDGBA) has objected the “sudden and unceremonious transfer” of Dimapur District DC, Anoop Khinchi (IAS) during these precarious and unfortunate times, where public, government agencies and CSOs are all engaged in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
While joining the demands of the Dimapur Chamber of Commerce & Industry (DCCI), Dimapur District Citizens’ Forum (DDCF), Dimapur Urban Council Chairmen Federation (DUCCF), Naga Council Dimapur (NCD), Dimapur Naga Students’ Union (DNSU) and other CSOs and NGOs, the DDGBA affirmed and declared that the Union does not holds no grudges against the new DC nor are they interfering with the working system of the Government.
“Yet it is only too fair on our part to view that replacing the incumbent DC, who has in fact hold office just for only few months appears too haphazard, absurd, farcical and very uncalled for,” the Union stated.
The union asserted that “It is crystal clear to every right thinking citizen that such steps will only weaken and aggravate our grounds and composures, since all the earlier strategies, plans and battle lines drawn will have to be re-drawn again from square one, which will only give space and advantage to the advancing threat. Besides, holding meets, discussions and re-strategizing the defense mechanism appears too unfeasible and impractical.”
The DDGBA also justified that the incumbent DC Anoop Khinchi leading the DTF (District Task Force) and other frontline workers has continued to withstand and has hold the ground, with undaunting statesmanship and unwavering spirit and who rather deserves accolades and kudos.
The DDGBA therefore requested the Government's competent authorities to re-consider and immediately revoke the order and retain the incumbent DC.
