Sahitya Academy awardee Y D Thongchi said that the APLS, headed by him since its birth at his initiative, has been serving as a platform to give exposure to state’s budding writers and creative artists besides sending them to various tiol events to represent the state. Rajiv Gandhi University Hindi associate professor Jamu Binny, noted multi-lingual writer Kaling Borang and prominent Assamese writer Ajanta, all active APLS members, have won laurels for the state at regiol and tiol events.

APLS general secretary Tokong Pertin lauded the tiol Book Trust for holding the annual book fair, which will encourage the reading habit among the youths and help them incline towards the present knowledge era.
