The political crisis in the State has apparently been resolved with Congress agreeing to submit the report of cabinet sub-committee on formation of new administrative units in the next cabinet meeting, scheduled on Feb 1. Deputy chief minster has also said that the coalition government will complete its full term.
“The cabinet sub committee has almost prepared its report. It would be submitted to the cabinet ahead of the cabinet meeting," said Dy CM Tara Chand on his arrival from New Delhi.
Tara Chand along with three Congress ministers had gone to New Delhi to discuss the political crisis with the party high command.
He said that it was during the chief ministerial tenure of Ghulam Nabi Azad, eight new districts were formed and the committee headed by SS Bloria, on formation of new units couldn’t complete its task as government had fallen.
“Another committee headed by Mushtaq Ganai was formed and it was found that some of the areas were not represented and there were certain gaps. Then the government decided to set up cabinet sub committee, which visited all the 22 districts and received more than 2500 representations to ensure equitable distribution of new units in all three regions,” he said.
“The government will complete its full term and there is no threat to it,” said Tara Chand.
The hectic paralyses on submitting report started latter in the day. The committee headed by Tara Chand, had a detailed meeting which was also attended by all three members from the NC.
The CSC discussed in detail various issues to be taken under consideration while deciding creation of new administrative units in different regions and sub-regions of the state. It was decided in the meeting that regional imbalance, area discrimination particularly in hilly and tough terrains as well as issues left unattended by the Ganai Committee would be taken under deliberation before finalizing the report.
The committee would present its final report before next cabinet meeting.
He instructed the revenue secretary to submit before CSC the set of norms and minimum parameters to be followed for creation of new administrative units at different levels in the next CSC meeting.
