ATSU questions govt for not doing enough to secure the border, seeks early release of abducted youths

[ Karda Natam ]

DAPORIJO, Sep 6: The All Tagin Students’ Union (ATSU), while condemning the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) for reportedly abducting five Tagin teenagers from Nacho area, questioned the government for not paying attention to one of the most strategically important places in the country.

The ATSU said that despite sacrifices made by Tagins, especially during the Indo-China War in 1962, “the government has paid less attention to the growth of Tagins.”

“Sacrifices and other assistance to the Indian Army by the Tagins during the war have never been acknowledged by the government and still today people live under the fear of Chinese aggression,” it said.

Expressing shock over the kidnappings, the ATSU said that “despite repeated attempts made by the PLA, the Government of India has only concentrated on Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir but never focused on the development and security of border areas in Upper Subansiri, especially in terms of road and telecommunication.”

While rendering their services to the nation many army personnel and public have lost their valuable lives because of dilapidated road.

Further, the union appealed to the union government to find a solution to bring back the five and beef-up security in sensitive areas.
