The central committee of Young Chakma Association (YCA), the largest organisation among Chakma community in Mizoram, today strongly denied having signed an agreement with its Mizo counterpart central Young Mizo Association (YMA) over the latters plan to conduct Chakma census. According to a press statement of central YMA which was published in national and local media, the two organisations signed an agreement according to which both the community-based civil societies agreed to cooperate with the government, especially the task force on illegal immigrants constituted by the state government following instructions from the ministry of home affairs to detect and deport illegal immigrants from Bangladesh. Following the agreement, the YMA abandoned its plan to conduct the Chakma census. The central Young Chakma Association disclaims of any such resolution with the CYMA which resolved to detect foreigners belonging to only Chakma community, a statement of YCA said. It was the expressed opinion of the meeting held with additional home secretary Lalbiakzama and the CYMA, that foreigners can not only belong to the Chakma community but from other communities living in Mizoram. Hence, it was resolved in the meeting that CYCA and CYMA would cooperate with the State Government in the execution of the orders from the home ministry, Govt of India to set up special task force to detect illegal immigrants from Bangladesh irrespective of their identity based on race. A meeting of central YCA expressed that any deviation in the process of identifying illegal immigrants from the home ministrys order, the CYCA will not cooperate with the process. The YCA further refuted the claims made by Mizo NGOs of Chakmas decadal growth rate being abnormal is not consistent with data available with the government. The growth rate of the Chakmas has maintained a balance with the rest population of Mizoram. If Chakmas growth rate can be termed as abnormal, it should equally apply to the rest population of Mizoram, it said.UNI ZS AKM SB AS2158
