Congress politicises PRC, says Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein
Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein on Wednesday squarely blamed the opposition Congress for the violence in the state in February this year over granting of Permanent Citizenship Certificate (PRC) to six non-tribal communities in Changlang and Namsai district. The State capital on February witnessed large scale violence over the issue resulting in loss of three lives besides damage to public and private properties. “The PRC is a social issue but the Congress politicised it to gain mileage which did not worked. The people of the state has now realised who was the mastermind behind creating the situation,” Mein said while addressing an election rally here. “When properties of BJP leaders were damaged why not a single property of any Congress leader was under attack during the violence?” Mein questioned adding, it was an open secret now who have hatched the conspiracy to dislodge the government. The Deputy Chief Minister added that the intention of the Congress was to dislodge the BJP government in the state and to come back to power through evil designs and by disturbing peace and tranquillity in the State. “People will give a befitting reply to the party this election,” Mein added.
