The joint survey was conducted in an attempt to know the ground realities of the Chakma-Hajong activities and their status from the beginning till date.
The AAPSU sources alleged that during the survey the team came across many instances of criminal activities of Chakma and Hajong refugees such as murder, rape, dacoity, ransacking of government offices, kidnapping of government officer and indigenous people, encroachment of government land, community area and forest reserved area and so on and so forth.

"The Union has been spearheading the movement against the Chakma-Hajong refugees and will continue to do so in future," AAPSU president Kamta Lapung said adding "the recent survey has revealed many saddening stories of the indigenous people which touched the sentiment of the AAPSU members."
He said "AAPSU is contemplating to go for a rigorous movement against them and would come forward for the talks only with certain terms and conditions on their part."

The union appealed the indigenous people of the state to cooperate with them in their movement against the `unauthorized` elements within the territorial boundary of the state.

It also appealed the people not to be misled by some `unmandated` organizations.
