AAPSU urges govt not to heed to CoSAAP’s demand

ITANAGAR, Apr 20: The All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) has called upon the state government not to heed to the demand of the CoSAAP to raise the retirement age bar from 58 to 60 years.
In a release, the AAPSU stated that any wavering on the part of the state government in the sensitive issue of enhancing the age limit from 58 to 60 years and the issue of NOC will not be tolerated at any cost.
“We call upon the state government to take serious note of our repeated request on the issue of CoSAAP’s demand. The government must be sensitive as well as sympathetic to the hopes and aspirations of thousands of youths in the state who are desperately looking out for one opportunity to realize their dreams. However, this demand of the CoSAAP will instead lead to “state of stagnation”, said AAPSU General Secretary Tobom Dai.
Further, the Union said that the proposed state cabinet meeting slated to be held on Friday afternoon must take into consideration the deteriorating academic atmosphere in higher institutes of learning like NERIST and NIT in the state.
“Specific corrective suggestions must be conveyed from the state government to MHRD for appointment of regular directors in both the institutions of higher learning that have been left to fend for itself with stop gap arrangement for many years,” said AAPSU President Hawa Bagang.
Further, he informed that the AAPSU will visit both the institutes to note the prevailing situation.
The Union also reminded the state government to reconsider the decision of winding up engineering wings in Education, Sports and Tourism departments. “Such a move would have an adverse effect on the overall growth of the departments and lead to unemployment of the individuals,” said Bagang.
