ITANAGAR, JAN 17:
The Arunachal Indigenous Students Union (AISU) on Friday announced 12-hour capital bandh on 28 January 2020 in protest against the non-fulfilment of its series of demands by the state government including immediate deportation of Chakma-Hajong and Tibetan refugees from the State.
Addressing media persons here at Arunachal Press Club, AISU president Techi Talik said that Chakma-Hajong and Tibetan refugee issue is a decade-long burning issue of the State and the state government continues to give false assurance to solve the matter through Supreme Court where the matter has just got delayed.
AISU no longer trusts the judgment of Supreme Court and the intentions of the state government , he said.
Despite submitting several memorandums, the state government has not fulfilled any of our demands which include cancellation of wine shop and Indian Made Foreign Liquor, inclusion of Arunachal history text book from Classes 3 to 9, monthly stipend for students, renaming of Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU) to Arunachal University and Indira Gandhi Park to Abotani Park, introduction of chopper service to remote areas, erection of street lights within twin capital and 3 percent reservation of job quota for APST artists, the AISU president said.
