KLA representative Malsawm Kuki said the decision was taken to follow the true spirit and real meaning of the festival.
He said, ''It is very unfortunate to witness every Chavang Kut celebrated completely devoid of its true meaning. The Miss Kut Contest was stealing the entire show which was not related with Kut.
