ITANAGAR, Feb 24: The Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) on Saturday refused to speak on the PRC issue with APCC president Takam Sanjoy saying he had no comment to offer on the issue.
Addressing media persons at Rajiv Gandhi Bhavan here, Sanjoy offered
condolences to the families of the youths who died in police firing, and termed Friday’s violence a failure of the state government.

On being asked about their opinion on granting of PRCs to the non-APST communities of Changlang and Namsai districts, while Sanjoy said he had no comment to offer, Pario said it was a matter for the government to decide.
