ANSU accuses Governor, CM of working against the community
FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT
ITAGAR, Feb 22: Days after Kalikho Pul was sworn in as the eight chief minister of Aruchal Pradesh, trouble is brewing for Pul with All Nyishi Student’s Union (ANSU) alleging him of working against the Nyishi community.
“ANSU will never give up the audio clip issue,” said ANSU president Byabang Joram referring to an audio clip on social networking sites, where a man alleged to be Pul, is heard making derogatory remarks about the Nyishi community.
However, Pul has denied making any comments and cried political conspiracy.
Alleging Pul and Governor JP Rajkhowa of initiating transfer and posting of senior officers on commul lines, ANSU president Byabang Joram demanded immediate cancellation of transfer and posting of senior government officers belonging to Nyishi community and to reinstall them in their respective department with same position, powers and functions.
On February 10, the governor in an office memorandum directed immediate cancellation of all officiating or functiol appointment.
Meanwhile, the apex student’s body of the community has questioned the intention of the state government for continuing with the deployment of para-military forces in Itagar, despite the withdrawal of President’s Rule on February 19.
ANSU also questioned the government over alleged payment of allowances, perks and salary to para-military forces from state exchequer.
Accusing the governor doing nothing in the accidental death of a student Joram Tadir, it said, since the incident happened in Assam, the governor didn’t constitute an inquiry committee.
