Arunachal objects to Naga political party
Itanagar: The Arunachal Pradesh government for
the first time has expressed objection to the reported
formation of a Naga political party in the state.
Home Minister Takar Marde, during his whirlwind tour of
the trouble-torn districts of Tirap and Changlang recently,
reportedly denied existence of a regional party by the name of
Naga People?s Party of Arunachal and opposed formation of any,
official sources said here today.
Addressing a series of public meetings in interior
administrative circles of the twin districts, Marde clarified
that the people of Arunachal respect and regard their brothers
and sisters in Nagaland but will not accept any attempt to
create a regional political party based on cultural affinity
between the two states.
He appealed to those divisive forces to refrain from such
activities, the sources said.
In one of the meetings, Marde assured that the central
and state governments are closely monitoring the prevailing
law and order situation in both the districts.
