ANSU supports AAPSU bandh
ITANAGAR, July 27: As announced 24 Hours Bandh Call on 28th by All Arunachal Pradesh
Students Union (AAPSU), the All Nyishi Students' Union (ANSU) will support the proposed
Bandh call at full extent till all the demands laid before the Govt are fulfilled.
In a statement ANSU president Niglar Veo stated that the fight is not for the justice
of late Jumchi Nguso only but it is also a fight against the wrong policing of the
men-in-uniform in the state. “The death of Nguso in the hand of police is not the
first of its kind and there are hundreds of cases of custodial death and human right
violations which take place in the interior and rural areas. However due to the lack
of awareness amongst the people and negligence of authority, the cases are gone unrecorded,”
ANSU has further demanded the state government to train the police officers and other
lower rank police personnel to develop public relation for better policing. It is
a known fact that without the co-operation and support of the ordinary citizen, howsoever
the law may be strict, is bound to be a failure. Every citizen has an equal responsibility
to contribute in an effort to stabilize the law and order in the state, but when
the innocent citizens are beaten up and killed in the name of application of rule
of law by the men-in-uniform, that uniform is bound to be disrespected added ANSU
president. ANSU has further urged all the civil societies to join hand in fighting
against the police atrocities and misapplication of “rule of law" otherwise we do
not know who would be the next after Nguso.
Meanwhile All Capital Complex Contract Worker’s Union (ACCCWU) has extended support
to the 24 hour bandh called issued by AAPSU against inhuman death of late Jumchi

for collection and compilation of wide variety of data from different sources. Therefore
the flow of data should be regular and timely as the backdated data often looses
its importance, hence he urged the officers’ participants to ensure correct and accurate
data to be collected and compiled so that they are made available to users well in

department, D. Mukhopadhyay, DDG, Gangtok who is here as the observer and guiding

of the survey first and understand the problems coming from manufacturing, trade
and other services. He further said out of 4 hamlets of NSS non- agricultural is
the biggest enterprise, therefore he urged the participants/ trainees to take full
advantage of the training programme and to understand the concepts, definitions and
