AAPSU asks people not to succumb to extortion demand
Itanagar: The All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union (AAPSU) today appealed to the people to stop giving donation or succumbing to the pressure of extortion from any quarter.
AAPSU president Kamta Lapung in a statement said the NSCN factions were thriving on extortions and donations which should be discouraged at all cost as giving or demanding donation was a crime under section 7 and 8 of the Prevention of Corruption Act 1988.
Referring to his recent meeting with Union Home Affairs ministry’s joint secretary (Northeast) Sambhu Singh, Lapung said that the Centre was against the donation or extortion culture which was the reason for NSCN factions to flourish in the state.
Responding to an AAPSU memorandum demanding an end to ongoing turf wars between two factions of NSCN (IM) and Khaplang for area dominance though the ceasefire agreement between the Centre and the NSCN had not been extended to Arunachal Pradesh, Singh had assured all possible steps to improve the law and order situation in insurgency-infested Tirap, Changlang and Longding districts.
Lapung, however, cautioned any organization for its misadventure of seeking donation in the name of AAPSU.
If any complaint is received from any quarter, the union would be forced to act legally with the help of law enforcing agencies", he added.
