DA asks AESDSU to call off proposed June 28 bandh

PASIGHAT, Jun 26: The East Siang district administration has asked the All East Siang District Students’ Union (AESDSU) to call off its proposed 12-hour bandh on 28 June, assuring that justice would be delivered to late Ojing Taying.
The district administration on Tuesday convened a coordination meeting in view of the proposed bandh call, which was attended by Deputy Commissioner TamiyoTatak, SP Prashant Gautam, ADCs of Pasighat, Mebo and Ruksin, and representatives of AEDSSU, AdiSU, NGOs, and senior members of the society.
The deputy commissioner, the SP and other administrative officers and leaders stated that they understand the sentiment of the AESDSU and that justice must be delivered to the victim.
Seeking cooperation, they asked the bandh callers to review their stand and to adopt alternative democratic means of protest instead of calling bandh.
The bandh callers/enforcers were also informed that the Supreme Court has declared any bandh call by political parties, organizations or associations or groups or individuals as unconstitutional and illegal.
AESDSU has been demanding that the state Home department hand over the Ojing Taying murder case to the Central Bureau of Investigation. (DIPRO)
