CM cancels plans to construct Hakha police quarters
03 July 2015 — Hung Ngai, chief minister of the Chin State government, cancelled plans to construct new police quarters upstream of the lake in Hakha.
Siang Mang, chairman of the Hakha elders, told the Chinland Post that the chief minister had made the decision after inspecting the site.
“The Hakha elders informed the police commissioner that we objected to the construction plans although work on part of the area had already started,” added Mang.
He said that the issue had been brought before State ministers for discussion and that the chief minister had been informed of the result.
Police Commissioner Myint Lwin had been criticized for avoiding meeting with the town-elders and community leaders regarding the matter.#
