ITANAGAR, Jul 16: All Papum Pare District Students’ Union (APPDSU) appealed to the State Government to respond positively to the demands of various organizations, who had given several bandh calls in State Capital in the recent past in protest against Govt’s lackadaisical attitude in redressing their grievances.
The issues raised by those Union/organizations are of serious nature and Govt need to respond positively, APPDSU said in a release.
Criticizing the Government for remaining a mute spectator to the problems, APPDSU said that first and foremost duty of a people friendly Government is to look after the grievances of common people. But, Govt has utterly failed to do the same. “Today, Arunachal Pradesh, once considered to be the peaceful state, has turned into battlefield because of few people,” the students union alleged and appealed to the Government to resolve the issues for the welfare of people of the state, or else, APPDSU would be compelled to launch indefinite bandh calls to wake up the Government from deep slumber, it added.
