Chidambaram further said that there are other Kuki organizations at Churachandpur and Sadar Hills with their separate demands and so the government could not take decision to implement 6th schedule for Churachandpur, Chandel and Sadar Hills under one administration  unit for the Kukis. However, the government can make necessary arrangement for the creation of Kuki (Khulmi) Development Council under 6th Schedule if the people of Chandel district agree with separate implementation in their district alone for bringing of development peace and harmony among different communities of the state, Home Minister asserted.
