NPP demands President’s Rule in Arunachal

ITANAGAR, Feb 24: Expressing deep concern over the present volatile situation in the state, particularly in the capital, the Arunachal Pradesh unit of the National People’s Party (NPP) has called for imposition of President’s Rule in the state.
In a press statement, the NPP said the party had taken a stand against granting of PRCs to non-APSTs through its legislature party leader Tanga Byaling prior to the commencement of the assembly session.
Describing the state government’s decision to scrap the PRC issue as “too little, too late,” the NPP urged the government to “heal the wounds they have caused and give justice to those who have sacrificed their lives in these altercations.”
“The NPP has always defended the rights of the indigenous, be it through the CAB or against the PRC. The indigenous people cannot be made to part an inch of their land or their sole rights within the state,” the party said, reiterating its stance on the PRC issue.
