Itagar, Sept 17: To highlight the contentious Stapled Visa issue before the people, the Aruchal Civil Society (ACS) on Wednesday released a booklet at Sangey Lhaden Sports Academy (SLSA) here. Chief Information Commissioner Y D Thongchi while releasing the booklet, urged the students of SLSA to keep up their studies at the same track also while practicing for sports events. “For your future achievement you have to set a target and I believe that you being the future of Aruchal will not only bring medals from tiol events, but will also from intertiol events and Olympics,” Thongchi stressed. Dr ni Bath, Professor of Political Science in Rajiv Gandhi University, gracing the programme as special invitee said that it was because of various sport events particularly athletics, Manipur is well known among other states of the country but Aruchal was yet to get its due recognition. While questioning the Centre for not resolving the stapled visa issue, he said that it was because of the stapled visa issue, the sportsperson from Aruchal were not able to showcase their talent though they have all qualities. Entrepreneur Kholie Goyi, while briefing on what she suffered because of the stapled visa, advised the gathering that one should precisely know their own tiol anthem saying that it is the real identity to which country they belong whatsoever may be the prevailing situation. ACS chairman Patey Tayum while stating that sportsperson from Aruchal were treated differently in intertiol events, further questioned the Centre on why it was not coming to a solution on this issue even after 34 long years.
