Itanagar, Aug 16 (UNI) The Nyishi Elite Society (NES) today urged the Arunachal Pradesh government to take necessary steps to do away with the bandh culture in the state, which impedes developmental activities.
Talking to newspersons here, NES president Bengia Tolum said the state government should take initiatives to check frequent bandh calls given by various organisations through discussions.
''Though peace is the prerequisite for overall development, frequent bandh calls would retard developmental activities,'' he said adding that economic growth in Arunachal was the need of the hour and private investors would not be attracted if the bandhs continue.
The NES, the umbrella organisation of the Nyishi community, further appealed to the people to maintain social harmony and tranquility for peaceful co-existence in the society.
Referring to the boundary dispute between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, Mr Tolum suggested that the state government should pass a resolution in this regard in the forthcoming Assembly Session to demarcate Rajgarh Ali as the boundary for both the states which would solve the decade-old imbroglio.
