Chi's move to reme towns uncalled for: AAPSU
From Our Correspondent
Itanagar, April 21: Responding to the Chinese government’s move to “standardise’ the mes of six towns in Aruchal Pradesh in the backdrop of His Holiness Dalai Lama’s recent visit to the state, the All Aruchal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) has termed the move as intriguing and uncalled for.
“Chi is unnecessarily interfering in the interl affairs of a sovereign tion. The development is an unwarranted act on part of the Chinese government and is a deliberate plan to create confusion and commotion. We reject outright the reming which has been done without the concern and certification of the indigenous populace of Aruchal Pradesh,” AAPSU president Hawa Bagang said in a statement.
Aruchal was never a part of Chi at any given point of time and such parochial approach and idea won’t have any takers in Aruchal Pradesh who are one of the most patriotic people in the country, he added. Aruchal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) President Takam Sanjoy said that it is without any doubt and confusion an ‘integral’ part of the Indian Union.
“The entire indigenous and ethnic people of Aruchal Pradesh have since British India, got integrated into the Indian mainstream. Some of ethnic tribe leaders even participated during the freedom struggle of Indian Independence. Therefore, Aruchal being disputed as claimed by the Chi is absolutely absurd and beyond and ethnic migratory evidence,” Sanjoy said.
Sanjoy, who was also convenor of “Intertiol Parliamentarians Network for Tibet Cause” during his Lok Sabha tenure informed that the Chinese government should not paint political hype to the Dalai Lama’s Aruchal visit.
