AAPSU urges government to solve boundary problem
Itanagar, Sep 14 (UNI) The All Arunachal Pradesh Students' Union (AAPSU) has urged the state government to hold immediate talks with its Asom counterpart for solving the long pending Asom-Arunachal boundary disputes.
Alleging the encroachment of large portion of the state by Asomese, AAPSU general secretary Ojin Tashing said the government had not taken any action to solve the vexed boundary issue.
He also demanded stern action against the illegal encroachers.
AAPSU President Kanu Bagang said the Bordoloi commission, a one-man committee, was not sufficient to demarcate the Asom-Arunachal boundary.
'' It is the responsibility of both the state governments to find a permanent solution to the dispute,'' he said.
He also added that though they were maintaining status-quo but their neighbours were not doing so.
Mr Bagang also suggested the government to include a person with vast knowledge about the entire historical background into the commission adding that the affected people from both the sides should be taken into confidence while holding talks.
Appreciating Chief Minister Gegong Apang's statement on Chakma-Hajong refugees issue in the state at the chief minister's conference at Delhi, the AAPSU secretary expressed his concern over the internal security threat posed by their temporary settlement in the state.
