Bandh hits Itanagar

By Correspondent

ITANAGAR, Feb 10 � The 12 hour Capital bandh called by All Arunachal Pradesh Border Students� Union (AAPBSU) today crippled normal life in the State capital here. The Union had called the bandh in protest against the State Government�s alleged failure to take up developmental activities for the local people residing along the Assam-Arunachal boundary area.

Though there was no major incidents of violence, the bandh witnessed stone pelting, blocking of NH-52A at various locations by burning tyres and felling trees.

All business establishments and financial institutions remained closed during the bandh, while there was a thin attendance in Government offices.

Barring few State Transport buses and vehicles of security forces, all commercial and public vehicles remained off the road. According to sources, some bandh enforcers have been arrested.

It is worth mentioning here that the Capital administration in an executive order had declared the bandh call illegal.

The Union said that it was compelled to take the path of agitation as the State Government did not pay heed to its demands. The demands of the Union included immediate issuance of land possession certificates free of cost to the Arunachalees settled in the inter-State boundary areas without clearance from the Forest department and construction of permanent police check gates in all inter-State boundary areas.

Meanwhile, Arunachal Pradesh Government has vehemently condemned the Capital bandh called by an organisation and termed it unethical and politically motivated.

The Government has appealed to the people of the State to socially disassociate with such organisations and outcaste its leaders who jeopardise the social fabric. �Until and unless the people voluntarily and vociferously stand against such evil forces, the State can not stride towards its desired goal of prosperity and inclusive development.�

Regarding boundary dispute, the State Government clarified that the Apex Court had already constituted a one-man commission to resolve the boundary row.
