NES appeals for peace

ITANAGAR, Feb 25: The Nyishi Elite Society (NES) has appealed to the people to maintain peace, stating that the issue of granting permanent resident certificates (PRC) to non-APSTs is a dead issue now.
NES president Bengia Tolum said he had a detailed discussion with the chief minister on the prevailing situation in the capital complex, at the latter’s invitation, here on Monday.
The meeting was attended by representatives of all apex community-based organizations of the state.
The NES urged the chief minister to constitute a committee, to be headed by a retired judge or a sessions judge, to conduct an impartial inquiry into the whole episode that left the capital complex in turmoil in the last couple of days, and to submit its findings in a time-bound manner.
“All the culprits indicted in the findings should be taken to task as per the law, and the incumbent DC and SP must be removed forthwith,” the NES demanded.
It also urged the CM to deliver justice to the family members of those who were injured in police firing without delay.
The NES appealed to all sections of the society, including senior citizens, political leaders, NGOs, CBOs, women, youths, and student bodies, to contribute meaningfully for restoration of peace and tranquility, and to maintain communal harmony in order to bring normalcy back in the capital complex.
It also appealed to the market committees and religious leaders to involve themselves in the peace movement, and urged the senior members of the society to constitute sector- and ward-level peace committees.
Expressing solidarity with the families of the victims, the executive members of the NES prayed for eternal peace of the departed souls and speedy recovery of those injured.
