ANSU bandh call stands
ITANAGAR, Jun 09: Following the failure of the GoAP to meet its charter of demands, including for an independent home minister, the All Nyishi Students’ Union (ANSU) Sunday said it will go ahead with the 12-hour capital bandh on June 11 it had announced earlier.
In a press release, the union said its representatives met the chief minister at his official residence Saturday evening, but that despite a lengthy discussion ‘the CM failed to meet our demands.’
The ANSU said it would resort to clamping a series of bandhs in the capital if the government failed to meet its demands even after the June 11 bandh.
Bandh declared illegal
Meanwhile, Capital Complex district magistrate Pige Ligu has declared the bandh illegal under Section 144 CrPC, and directed the Itanagar SP to take all preventive steps to ensure that no bandh takes place on June 11.
If anybody is found to be violating this order, action may be taken against them as per provisions of law, he stated in an order issued this evening.
The DM also directed the ANSU to refrain from any act that may affect the rights, liberty, safety or security of common citizens, or that may cause disturbance of the public tranquility, or may cause a riot or affray.
