The recently renamed Naga People’s Front (NPF) from Nagaland People’s Front, has met with a roadblock in Arunachal Pradesh where the powerful All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union (AAPSU) has opposed the aspiration of the NPF to venture outside the state in a bid to spread out to Naga inhabited areas. The AAPSU has opposed the reported move of the NPF to expand base in Arunachal Pradesh by putting candidates in Tirap and Changlang districts for the forthcoming Assembly polls, due in October. The apex students’ body, in a statement, termed the move as an attempt to ‘’confuse and compound’’ the already fragile political situation faced by the common people of those districts, according to UNI. “The politics of trying to impose their will and legitimacy in the name of community or tribe will never be allowed to take roots in this state and the union will take all possible measures to prevent such evil design by any outside forces trying to foster mistrust and enmity among the peace loving people of the state,” the AAPSU added. The union called upon the political leaders and senior citizens of the state to disengage themselves from “such political misadventures.” “The claim of the Nagaland-based political party that leaders from Arunachal have also participated in its meeting will only disrupt the existing peaceful political setup in the state and parties that are contesting and putting up candidates purely based on development planks and national integration, rather than in the name of any particular community or tribe as envisaged by the NPF,” the AAPSU stated. “The leaders of the state, particularly of the two districts, need to show political statesmanship by taking recourse from history and enduring the pain of its past political blunder,” the union opined.
