Union opposes Greater Nagalim demand

ITANAGAR, Aug 6: The All Arunachal Pradesh Border Students’ Union (AAPBSU) has strongly opposed the demand of the NSCN (IM) for a ‘Greater Nagalim’ and termed it “a greater threat to the state’s territorial integrity compared to the often repeated Chinese claims over the state.”
In a representation to the governor, the union on Monday sought his intervention in the matter and said, “If the extremist organizations are not checked in Arunachal Pradesh, this peaceful state may come under the grip of anti-India elements. This would further enhance the gravity of Chinese threat to India. We must understand that, strategically this state is highly significant for India. Government of India must increase the strength of security forces, conduct sustained army operations against this foreign supported terror groups, improve rail and communication and re-establish the authority of the government by dismantling the structure of parallel government run by terrorist organization,” it said.
