Autonomous District Council (ADC), a hill-based panchayat like
Some hill-based organisations had opposed the election to
the members of the ADC some months ago, saying hill areas
should be placed under the provisions of the sixth schedule of
the Constitution. This was opposed by the government of
Manipur saying ADC gave enough powers to its members.
