AAPSU criticises "atrocities"
Itanagar: The All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union (AAPSU) has expressed resentment over, what it termed as "the atrocities committed on innocent Arunachalees", by Assam police in inter-state boundary areas and called for maintaining status quo as per the Supreme Court directives.
A team of the apex students body of the state led by its president Kamta Lapung conducted a three-day inspection of boundary areas of troubled Longding district, including Hase Russa, Kamku Russa and Tanglam Russa villages, from May 30 to June 2 last, an AAPSU statement said today.
Expressing shock at the dismantling of the primary school building and church at Hase Russa village, Lapung said that such acts were inhuman and against the repeated agreements of both the state governments followed by several joint meetings between both the state governments to maintain status quo along the disputed boundaries.
Moreover, such actions also disrespect the Supreme Court directive to maintain status quo as it formed a local boundary commission in September 2004 to identify the boundaries of Assam, Arunachal and Nagaland after the Assam government moved the apex court in 1989.
The AAPSU president called upon the state government to construct permanent buildings immediately at the check gates along the boundary areas for the security of the police personnel and to help them discharge their duties effectively.
Lapung also took a dig at the government officers posted along the boundary areas which were not discharging their duties properly thereby aggravating the boundary problem, and even there was unpleasant atmosphere for conducting the recently concluded panchayat elections in Longding and asked the state government to post committed officers to such problematic areas.
He also requested for rebuilding the church and primary school buildings immediately.
