ANYA urged to not call bandhs in Xmas season

ITANAGAR, Dec 8: The Arunachal Christian Forum (ACF) has urged the All Nyishi Youth Association (ANYA) to desist from calling bandhs in the Christmas season.
‘Christmas preparations, such as raising of stars, holding prayer sessions, and carol singing have already began from 1 December. The announcement of bandh calls by the ANYA has become a matter of concern for the Christians as the proposed bandhs will interfere with the free movement of the people for Christmas activities,’ the ACF stated in a press release on Friday.
It said its appeal does not reflect any judgment or taking of positions on the political matters raised by the ANYA.
‘Our intention is purely religious as our desire is to have hassle-free Christmas celebrations,’ it said.
