ITANAGAR: The All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) has reiterated its demand for immediate suspension of Capital Complex Deputy Commissioner for allegedly misusing public exchequer in four-lane highway construction from Chimpu to Papu Nallah including illegal reduction of RoW (Right of Way). If the State government and competent authorities do not comply to its demand within the stipulated time, the AAPSU said it will launch democratic movement.
In a representation to the Chief Minister, AAPSU claimed that compensation amount of Rs 42 crore for beyond the RoW and Rs 8.95 crore for within the RoW released for dismantling of structures was disbursed to the listed beneficiaries after approval of “false and inflated bills for both beyond RoW and within RoW”.
“However, many structures are still standing and still under possession of the beneficiaries. The width of the RoW (30/40 metres) has been drastically reduced to less than 18 to 24 metres which is totally against the Cabinet decision and the government notification 2006,” the apex students’ body said.
Meanwhile, AAPSU stated that it will launch the second phase Operation Clean Drive in the entire districts of the State shortly.
It suggested the government for strict implementation of Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation of 1873, Digitization of ILP system at check gates, installation of CCTV including metal detectors, setting up of additional ILP checking points at various entry points.
The AAPSU also urged for setting up a special court on a permanent basis to try and fast track cases pertaining to ILP violations in the State.
While seeking the government’s attention for blanket ban on “rampant” slaughtering of Mithun for commercial purposes and hunting of wild animals and birds, AAPSU demanded stringent action against the violators under the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972 and other regulations.
