Itanagar: The issue of granting permanent residential certificate (PRC) to non-Arunachalees has been opposed by several student organizations.
The All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union which will hold a protest rally here tomorrow, has expressed fear that grant of PRC to non-Arunachalees would pave the way for demand for Arunachal Pradesh State Tribal Status (APST).
The PRC would not entitle non-Arunachalees to APST, but to avail education and job opportunities outside the state, Power Minister Jarbom Gamlim, who is the government
spokesman said recently.
Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu has decided to convene an all-party meeting with representatives from student organizations on September 30 on the issue.
