A group of students hailing from Arunachal Pradesh, studying at Dehra Dun, has urged an action against China for its misadventures in the border region, in a memorandum submitted to the Uttarakhand chief minister. According to a report in TNN, the students of Information Technology Institute for the Tribes of India (ITITI), Dehra Dun, presented a memorandum to chief minister Ramesh Pokhariyal Nishank, demanding creation of an ‘Arunachal Battalion’, to thwart any mischief from China and defend ‘Mother India’. The students’ delegation led by Japken Kena, a Class X student, said, “No youth in Arunachal Pradesh will tolerate any mischief from the expansionist China.” The students said they want to join the Army and show the world that they are and shall always remain Indians. CM Nishank assured them that their requests would be conveyed to the Prime Minister and the President. “Till we have such patriotic students, we need not fear any one in the world,” Nishank said. The memorandum said, “We, the students of Arunachal Pradesh, want to express the concern and resolve of all Arunachal people regarding the arrogant, war-mongering interventions of China that claims Arunachal as its territory. We and our parents want to convey to Chinese people and their expansionist government that there is no India without Arunachal and no Arunachal without India. We are first Indians and then anything else.” The students further said, “We, the Arunachalis, are very patriotic people and will shed the last drop of our blood for defending our mighty India. We are cautioning China that it should not flare up tensions and hurt the peaceful people, otherwise it must remember that 2009 is not 1962 and we are well prepared for any eventuality.” They also made a request for setting up a military training facility in ITITI, so that they could join forces after completing education.
