The All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) has expressed concern over the reported recruitment drive of the NSCN (K) faction in Tirap district and urged the government to act immediately. The apex students’ body of the state, while condemning the reported recruitment of 18 youths from the district by the outfit on November 19 said, of the total, 16 were from Pongchau village and 2 from Bonia village under pongchau circle. ‘’The unlawful act of the outfit in the state where already an elected government is more disturbing as the youths involved are between the age group of 18 and 25 years,’’ AAPSU president Takam Tatung said in a statement, adding that the state government and the Centre needed to act immediately so that the youths were brought back to the mainstream. Tatung further stated that it was appalling to note that the “unfortunate” incident once again has exposed the dismal law and order problem in the district. The union, while referring to the resolution passed in Nagaland assembly recently to give due recognition to Naga outfits struggling for ‘Greater Nagalim’, urged the elected members of the state to take cue from Assam assembly and pass resolution for protecting the territorial integrity of the state, reported UNI. While reciprocating to the appeal made by the Arunachal Chamber of Commerce and Industries (AACI) to extend the period to the traders for disposing of the Chinese products available in the market, the AAPSU decided to extend it to one month. The union, however, reminded the traders’ body that the onus for successful implementation of the proposed movement of the union after expiry of the given time period shall solely lie in their shoulder. The union also ‘’welcomed’’ the concern shown by the leaders of BJP in the Lok Sabha with regards to Chinese claim over the state of Arunachal Pradesh and extended gratitude to Opposition leader LK Advani and his team for the ‘’spirited query they raised on the issue’’, and also endorsed the statement made by Takam Sanjoy, Lok Sabha member from the state, for granting of another developmental package in the backdrop of Chinese claim over the state. ‘’Development package as envisaged by the MP for developing road infrastructure along the 1080 km Sino-India border will negate the Chinese claim over our state in a big way,’’ Tatung added. The union, meanwhile, has decided to conduct a cricket tourney from December 18 at Basar in West Siang district in memory of late Tabom Bam, who sacrificed his life in the union’s ‘Delhi Chalo abhiyan’ in 1994 protesting the presence of Chakma-Hajong refugees in the state. An organising committee under the chairmanship of Boge Riba, assistant general secretary, has been constituted for the successful conduct of the tourney, the statement added.
