SHILLONG, Jan 27: The KHADC CEM and Chairman Federation of Traditiol Dorbar (FOTD) P. N Syiem announced that the Executive Committee (EC) KHADC will place the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Constitution of Councils of Traditiol Dorbar Bill 2016 during the KHADC session scheduled on February 26.

“We have made some changes to the bill after going through the provisions of the Sixth Schedule and instead of Federation of Traditiol Dorbar we have changed it to Council of Traditiol Dorbar (COTD),” Syiem told newsmen here on Wednesday.

He however said for now it will still be known as the FOTD but after it is passed on the floor of the house and gets the assent from the governor then it will change to COTD.

“There are some things which need to be corrected but we are confident that we will be able to place this bill in the floor of the house on February 26,” he said.

He pointed out that the objective of this bill is to unite all the MDCs, Syiems, Sordars, Hima, Raid and Headmen of different Dorbars and through the bill all stakeholders can sit together and discuss the issues concerning the people of the state.

“We have apprised the FOTD to appeal to all the Hima, Dorbar, Raid and the general public to participate in the black flag protest organised by the District Council to be held at the premises of the KHADC on January 29 to oppose the State Cabinet’s decision to amend the Meghalaya Services Rules,” he said.

The KHADC Chief said the FOTD have also decided to give full support on the decision taken by the Synjuk Ki Nongsynshar Shnong Ka Bri U Hynniewtrep (SNSBH) to set an ultimatum towards the state government to denotify the notification of the Meghalaya Services Rules before Febuary 5.

“We hope the government will denotify the notification since this will greatly affect the functioning of various traditiol institutions,” he said.

According to him, government employees play a vital role in different traditiol institutions of the state in uplifting their respective community.

He further informed that the COTD has two Dorbars one is the General Dorbar which will have around 8,000 members which includes Headmen, MDCs, Sordars, Syiems and one representative from different Dorbars and the other is the Executive Dorbar which will include 6 members from the District Council, 7 members from Dorbar Hima and Elaka, 3 members from Dorbar Raid and 11 members from Dorbar Shnong.
