This assurance underpinned that the four hill districts will be conferred the stats of ADCs before the election dates are announced.
The HAS, Hmarram Joint Headquarters, Pherzawl District stated that the organization is concerned about the well-being of the people in the district, and it firmly believes that upgrading of Pherzawl District to the status of ADC will enhance economic development and sustainability, stability and peace.

Biren Singh on January 30, 2021 by the Demand Committee.
