GUWAHATI, April 26: After a massive demonstration by Aruchali students at Itagar on Monday, a patriotic forum ridiculed the Chinese Government in Beijing for, what it said, its ‘unwanted exercise’ against India.

The Patriotic People’s Front, Assam (PPFA), in press a statement, asked the People’s Republic of Chi (PRC) to rethink its policy towards Tibet.

Thousands under the banner of the All Aruchal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU), the apex student organization in the State, demonstrated against the Beijing administration for claiming many places of the State of its own and even unilaterally reming them.

The demonstrators hit the streets in the morning hours holding banners and placards, chanting patriotic slogans such as ‘Vande Mataram, Bharat Mata Ki Joy, We’re Indians, Down with Beijing’ etc. They also burnt an effigy of Chinese President Xi Jinping during the demonstration.

Addressing the gathering, AAPSU president Hawa Bagang condemned the Beijing administration for having the audacity to reme six places of Aruchal Pradesh as a mark of protest against the 14th Dalai Lama’srecent visit to the frontier State. He asserted that Aruchal is an integral part of India.

“The people of Aruchal hold strongest patriotism for India. We are neither Chinese, nor were under Beijing’s rule. Moreover, we don’t want to be under the Communist Chi regime. We are Indians by heart and will remain so,” declared Bagang.

Strongly criticizing the Beijing authority for its illegal occupation of Tibet and also greedy eyes on Aruchal Pradesh, the PPFA urged the Union Government in New Delhi to take legitimate actions and also extend support to the Free Tibet movement. The forum argued that Chi was never an immediate neighbour to India, but to Tibet, and an independent regime in Lhasa would be safer for the country as a whole. Chi becomes India’s neighbour after occupying Tibet in the late fifties, added the PPFA statement endorsed by Rupam Barua, Jagadindra Raichoudhury, Ujjal Saikia and others.
