Unite against those who disturb peace: MLA

BOMDILA, Jul 21: Addressing hundreds of people, including members of the business community, community-based student and other organizations, and the public of West Kameng district at Buddha Peace Park here on Saturday, MLA Japu Deru called for standing united against perpetrators bent on disturbing the peace and tranquility in the district.
He was addressing the people against the backdrop of student organization SUMAA’s recent ‘Camp Bomdila’ on the Tibetan Rehabilitation Policy (TRP) and related issues which hit Bomdila a few days back.
“However good the intentions may be, no one has the right to take the law in their own hands,” Deru said. “The district administration needs to be taken into confidence to sort out the issues.”
Deputy Commissioner Sonal Swaroop urged the people, especially the business community, to come out of the fear psychosis and help the administration and the police “by keeping the communication lines open.”
Saying that “hiding facts and crimes is equivalent to committing a crime,” SP Raja Banthia urged the people to cooperate with the police by sharing information vital for the upkeep of law and order.
A complaint letter signed by the members of the business community here was handed over to the deputy commissioner for redress.
A mass rally, spearheaded by the community-based organizations of all the six indigenous tribes of the district, the All West Kameng Students’ Union, community-based student organizations, and the Bomdila Town Committee was also staged as a mark of protest against the highhandedness of the SUMAA on the TRP issue, and to press the administration to take strict action against any violation of law and order in the district.
