Itanagar: The Nyishi Youth Welfare Association (NYWA) has called a 12-hour capital bandh on December 12 in protest against what they described as the state government's "failure" to fulfill its demand.

The organisation had earlier served a ten-day ultimatum to the government for bringing to an end the recent stalemate following a deregatory remark against the Nyishi community which was published in two national dailies on May 4 last.

The report evoked strong reactions in the state that witnessed a series of bandh calls and violence in the recent past which even claimed a life on October 11 last.

The NYWA in a release today also threatened to continue its agitation till 'justice' is delivered to the community.

The organisation said that all sort of commercial establishments, offices and educational institutions will remained closed including movement of vehicles during the bandh.

However, media, security forces, ambulance and milk van have been exempted from the purview of the bandh, the release added.
