Our Correspondent

Itanagar, July 2: The State government has constituted a two-member committee to inquire into “the alleged issue of false ST certificates in favour of three persons, namely, Dr Sonam Tsoma, Dr Sonam Dolma and Dr Pema Dolma,” in Tawang district.

Chief secretary Satya Gopal had constituted the committee vide an order issued on June 29 last.
Divisional Commissioner (West) Gamli Padu is the chairman and West Kameng Deputy Commissioner Sonal Swaroop is the member of the committee, which will submit its findings to the government.

Meanwhile, the All Tawang District Students’ Union has deferred the 12-hour district bandh it had proposed to impose today under its ‘Operation Clean Drive’, saying it has received assurance from the State government that it would meet the union’s demands.

The bandh was announced in protest against illegal issuance of ST certificates to Tibetan refugees in the district, and to press the demand for immediate cancellation of the illegally issued documents.
The union’s Operation Clean Drive team is scheduled to meet the chief secretary in Itanagar to seek early fulfillment of its demands.
