AAPSU slams Governor, demands his immediate recall
FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT
Itagar, Dec 24: Days after Education Minister Tapang Taloh asked state Governor J P Rajkhowa to produce the entire footage of the arguments held between them on December 15 last, the All Aruchal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) has demanded the Governor to produce the unedited video immediately.
“The Governor instead of supplying the ‘edited’ version of the footage to electronic media should have the courage to provide the unedited footage of the entire discussion from the beginning,” AAPSU president Kamta Lapung said in a statement here today.
He said, the video clip had projected the state in a bad manner before the entire tion which was ‘unexpected’ from the Constitutiol head of the state.
“Instead of working for the overall development of the state and its people, the governor is busy in creating political instability in the state,” Lapung categorically said and demanded for his immediate call back from the state.
Referring to the Greenfield Airport issue, the AAPSU chief alleged that the governor in his letter to Prime Minister rendra Modi asking him to scrap off the project has clearly exposed his anti-Aruchal stand. “The governor from the very first day in office has been working against the interest of the state and its people. He even failed to pursue the contentious Chakma-Hajong refugee issues with the Centre,” Lapung alleged.
He said, the governor never bothered to write even a letter to the Home Ministry on the refugee imbroglio nor raised the issue in any platform.
“The people of the state were of the impression that after his appointment the decades-old inter-state boundary dispute between Aruchal and Assam will get a logical conclusion. But all their hopes and aspirations have been defeated by the governor who never raised the issue till date,” Lapung added.
Meanwhile, the apex students’ body has urged the state government to immediately filed the curative petition in the Supreme Court against its September 17 order for permanent settlement of Chakma-Hajong refugees in the state.
