ITANAGAR, Jan 4 - Over 30,000 people today demanded immediate recall of Arunachal Pradesh Governor JP Rajkhowa at the �Arunachal People�s Adalat� (court) organised at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Naharlagun near here today.
�We the people of the State strongly condemn the undemocratic, unethical and unconstitutional act of Governor for trying to destabilise a popularly elected and mandated government, his anti-tribal, anti-development and anti-people approach by encouraging dissident activities within the ruling party through unscrupulous means with malicious intentions leading to chaos and disharmony,� a resolution, read out by organising committee chairman and former MP Takam Sanjoy, said.
The Adalat, participated by Ministers, MLAs and mass-based organisations including All Arunachal Pradesh Students� Union (AAPSU) and All Nyishi Students� Union (ANSU), asked the Centre to recall the Governor within 24 hours for losing confidence of the people as his continuation would demoralise the essence of democracy.
The resolution demanded the Centre to take immediate measures to resettle Chakma and Hajong refugees in some other parts of the country and protect the tribal right and culture of the strategic and sensitive State from outside influence.
The State Government was also urged to take legal action against former Finance Minister and dissident leader Kalikho Pul for creating social disharmony and division through his recent remarks against the Nyishi community. � PTI
