ITANAGAR, Jan 28: All Nyishi Students’ Union (ANSU) president Toko Takam called upon the members of the Nyishi community to work for peace, prosperity and progress of the community and the state.
Addressing the 37th foundation day of the union here on Monday, Takam said the union has since its inception been working for the betterment of the society and would continue to do so.
He said the ANSU has been playing the role of the guardian of the students of the community and is working for their betterment.
Highlighting the achievements of the present ANSU team so far, Takam said most of the demands of the union which were placed before the state government, especially on the education front, have been fulfilled.
“Textbooks are reaching every school on time after constant persuasion with the government,” he said, adding that “27.71 lakh textbooks procured directly from Delhi have been distributed since 1 June, 2018.”
Takam said that, following the union’s demand, the state government has created 1130 teachers’ posts, and that examinations have also been conducted for their recruitment.
He said regularization of various upgraded secondary and higher secondary schools, creation of the divisional commissioner’s office in Yachuli, earmarking places for establishing Sainik Schools, and establishing agriculture and horticulture colleges in Nyishi inhabited areas, as demanded by the ANSU, were some of the major achievements.
The ANSU president also said that the union would pressurize the state government for early creation of Keyi-Panyor district.
“The ANSU will endeavour to fight against the drugs menace, as well as money culture in elections,” he said, and sought cooperation and suggestions from all concerned.
