APCC condemns Mechukha incident
The Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) has vehemently condemned the incident, where three persons were attacked by a group of ‘local’ youths during a tourism promotional event at Mechukha on 25 November.
Describing the incident very unfortunate, APCC said such incidents not only affect the tourism sector but also bring bad name in the reputation to the state as the festival was participated by thousands of domestic and foreign tourists.
The party demanded the district administration to bring all the culprits involved in the incident to book without any further delay
The APCC also criticized the local MLA for remaining mum on the incident, stating that ‘he might be shielding the culprits.’
