Min urged to help stranded students

ITANAGAR, Apr 7: A team of the Apatani Students’ Union (ASU) on Tuesday met local MLA and minister, Tage Taki, in Lower Subansiri HQ Ziro and requested him to take steps to assuage the problems being faced by the students who are stranded outside the state due to the nationwide lockdown.
“The minister said the state government is collecting data of all the people from Arunachal who have been stranded outside the state, and chalking out plans to help them,” the union said in a press release.
It advised stranded Apatani students to visit the link https://forms.gle/K2LvKFoG3uCKjFeUA, and fill up the form.
