APCSU appeals to Arunachal people to ignore AAPSU bandh on August 3

The AAPSU had on July 18 demanded the Pema Khandu-led government cancel all the residential proof certificates (RPCs) of the Chakma-Hajong community.

GUWAHATI:

The Arunachal Pradesh Chakma Students Union (APCSU), on July 28, appealed to the people of Arunachal Pradesh not to respond to the threats of statewide bandh on August 3 from 4 am onwards called by the All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union (AAPSU) over its demands not being met.

The AAPSU had on July 18 demanded the Pema Khandu-led government cancel all the residential proof certificates (RPCs) of the Chakma-Hajong community claiming that it had found at least 500 Chakma-Hajong refugees were issued RPCs at Diyun in Changlang district. They had also demanded the suspension of Changlang deputy commissioner (DC) and extra assistant commissioner (EAC) of Diyun immediately and “seizure of all the benefits and facilities availed by Bordumsa-Diyun MLA Samlung Mossang”.

“The demands of the AAPSU are illogical as issuance of residence certificate to the Chakmas is based on laws of India. The order for arrest under the National Security Act can only be issued by the Deputy Commissioner. Are we expecting the Deputy Commissioner to issue an arrest warrant for himself under the NSA,” asked Rup Singh Chakma, president of APCSU.

“The state government of Arunachal Pradesh must not give in to such demands. Otherwise, the State government will be governed by mob rule and not the rule of law. The bandh causes inconvenience and loss to all the people. The Chakmas and Hajongs shall not participate and everything shall remain open in the Chakma and Hajong inhabited areas,” Chakma added.

The AAPSU had also called for filing of FIR and arrest of Robin Chakma, a contractual worker of the EAC office.
