This is awkward writing overall.
The CAC was anyway meeting ....
is at best unusual, and arguably incorrect.
meeting once in a year or one in two years
is at best inconsistent (if it is not a typo as a comment suggests) and might better be recast as:
The CAC was only meeting once every year or two, so I did not understand the conflict.
But this seems to be reported speech, a spoken interview with a journalist, and may have been delivered off-the-cuff. In such a case a speaker often phrases things a bit awkwardly or loses track of exactly where a sentence was heading. The meanign is clear, which is all that can be hoped for in that situation.
