Any move for separate state or alternative arrangement warrants in-depth deliberation and on the community’s identity, representation in administration and land ownership rights, he said.
The chairman maintained that discord among communities over their representation in administration, claim over state’s assets and assertion for identity and land ownership rights is the consequence of the colonial government’s judiciary system and policy.
