Itanagar, Feb 2 (UNI) The All Arunachal Pradesh Students' Union (AAPSU) has asked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to intervene in resolving the decade-old contentious Chakma-Hajong refugee issue.

In a memorandum to Dr Singh on Thursday last, the students' body informed that the people of the State were supporting movement against the refugees and it was reflected in the historic referendum rally on September 20 during 1995.

The union added that it has been relentlessly pursuing the matter with the Centre through number of representations and said it had filed a PIL against the Election Commission on the issue.

While negating the alleged claims of the NSCN over Tirap and Changlang districts, the union stressed that the Centre must not bargain with any part of Arunachal.

It also refused to compromise with the territorial integrity of the State on China's repeated claims over Arunachal Pradesh.

Urging the Centre to declare all of the state as border area, it further requested the Prime Minister to include the union in any negotiation with the Chinese authorities.

Rejecting the Bordoloi Committee report on Assam-Arunachal boundary, the students' body urged Dr Singh to settle the boundary row immediately through the Commission constituted by the Centre.
