ANYA seeks action against encroachers

ITANAGAR, Apr 11: Condemning the jhum cultivation reportedly being carried out by encroachers on a plot of land belonging to Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU), the All Nyishi Youth Association (ANYA) has requested the Papum Pare deputy commissioner to initiate quick action against the encroachers.
Terming it an “illegal activity upon nation property,” the ANYA stated in a press release that properties of the sole central university of the state should be protected at any cost.
The university is producing human resource for the state and the nation, so everyone should cooperate with the district magistrate and the university authority in protecting the university’s land from encroachers, it said.
The ANYA said it had submitted a representation to the governor on 23 October, 2019, to reclaim the missing 64 acres of land allotted to RGU and to conduct a judicial inquiry for the missing original sketch map. It claimed that no suitable action was taken by the governor.
The association had served a 30-day ultimatum to the RGU vice-chancellor on 27 November last year to “reclaim the 64 acres of missing land; draw map of the university according to the original map of 1986 which contained 306 acres of land, as claimed by the vice-chancellor in the media on 29 October, 2018; and evict all land encroachers of the university.”
Since “no tangible action has been initiated by the VC,” the ANYA said, it “directly indicated that the university authority is not cooperating with the district magistrate to solve encroachment problem of campus.”
The association said it would decide on the future course action at an appropriate time.
