Itanagar: The BJP in Arunachal Pradesh has
called for adequate deployment of para-military forces along the boundary with Assam till an amicable settlement of the border row between the two states is reached.
Expressing shock over the NDFB killings at Doimara, the
party said that brutality of this type would not get anyone
anywhere and urged the state government to move the Union Home
Ministry in this regard.
In a statement today, BJP demanded revamping of the
Department of Border Areas with necessary fund allocations and
entrust the department with various development activities there.
It also demanded overhauling of the state police forces
to restrain those allegedly taking law into their own hands.
The party said the government must sincerely pursue talks
at various levels with the Assam and Nagaland counterparts and
take up various development programmes and building of
infrastructure facilities in the border areas.
