The All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) has expressed ‘’relief’’ after the withdrawal of the Naga Peoples Front (NPF) from the electoral politics of the state. The NPF had decided to field 13 candidates in Tirap and Changlang districts, the area which the NSCN(IM) has been claiming under its proposed Greater Nagalim. However, the party decided to drop the idea following constant protest from the apex students’ body, besides failure in getting clearance from the Election Commission of India (EC). ‘’The withdrawal of the NPF from Arunachal electoral politics has revealed the sentiments of the people to stand against those forces trying to divide the state and its people,’’ AAPSU president Takam Tatung said in a statement. ‘’There is no place for divisive politics in the state,’’ he added. The AAPSU further thanked the people and political leaders of the two districts for showing their ‘’political maturity’’ in rejecting the NPF, reported UNI. ‘’The NPF professes and propagates a nature of politics based on origin and region posing a real threat to the peaceful social setup of this multi-linguistic and multi-tribes state,’’ the union said. The union, while drawing the attention of all the political parties of the state to the ‘’massive pumping of money’’ in the run-up to the Assembly polls, insisted that they should practice what they preach, and requested the voters to vote and elect true leaders who can work for over all development of the state. It also urged the concerned authorities including the state’s Election Office to strictly implement the regulation of the Inner Line Permit (ILP) at this time even to the people coming for electioneering from outside the state.
