ITANAGAR: While condemnations are pouring in against the Joint High Powered Committee’s (JHPC) recommendation for issuance of PRC to the non-APSTs in Namsai and Changlang districts, the silence of the State’s apex students’ body on the issue might turn into its Achilles Heels as the All PapumPare District Students Union (APPDSU) today declared boycotting AAPSU’s activities.
Addressing a press conference at the Arunachal Press Club here on Thursday, APPDSU president Nabam Tado termed the JHPC recommendations as ‘nonsensical and illogical’ and said the report was drafted in haste without proper research and legal counsel.
Referring to the JHPC’s recommendation that the PRC can be recognized and notified as a regular pass under sections 2 & 4 of the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation (BEFR) Act, 1873, Tado questioned JHPC on who gave them the authority to recognize PRC as a regular Inner Line Permit. Stating the PRC has nothing to do with the BEFR Act, 1873, Tado said the commission has totally misunderstood section 2 of the Act or is trying to abuse the Act by wrongly interpreting it.
