ITANAGAR, Feb 6:  Kra Daadi District Headquarter Restoration Committee (JKDDHRC), Rido Charitable Society (RCS) and Takam Youth Welfare Society (TYWS) in a joint press conference claimed that the shifting of Kra Daadi district headquarter from Jamin to Palin is a political move. They also expressed their resentment over the laying of the foundation stone of the District Secretariat at Diring Hapa, Palin by Chief Minister Pema Khandu on January 30 last.
 Addressing media persons here at the Arunachal Press Club on Monday, Secretary JKDDHRC, Tarh Johny said that the shifting of the Kra Daadi District Headquarters is a sub-judice matter, which is pending in the Gauhati High Court, Itanagar Division Bench.  PIL on the matter was filed in 2022 and hearing is already going on in the case.
“After Jamin was passed in the State Assembly as the headquarters of Kra Daadi district in 2013, more than 100 crore fund has already been invested for the construction of office buildings, land development etc. But after 2019 Assembly election, all the developmental activities of Jamin were stopped and the state government shifted the headquarter to Palin by passing an ordinance in 2021 in the Assembly," added the Secretary.
The land donors have filed a PIL and fighting a legal battle on the shifting of headquarters and the matter is in court and CM Khandu was well informed in advance about the chronology of events through representation letters. Moreover, during the legal proceeding, the Court asked the state government by passing two important orders that ‘whether it is possible for the state government to develop Jamin as well as Palin as a twin city in the concept of the twin cities of Naharlagun and Itanagar, but till date there has been no response from the  government, said Johny.
He claimed that despite all the court orders and events, the CM laid the foundation stone for District Secretariat at Diring Hapa, Palin on 30th January this year which is a complete contempt of the High Court's order.
Meanwhile, he has appealed that before any concrete judgment or permanent judgment from the court there should not be any activities to shift the headquarters of Kra Daadi district.
