Arunachal Gov to file curative petition on Chakma Hajong issue

Itanagar- Against the backdrop of Supreme Court dismissing a special review petition on Chakma Hajong issue, Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki on Sunday said the state government would file a curative petition.

Tuki in a statement said, “We are not against the grant of Indian citizenship to the Chakma Hajong refugees, but opposed to their permanent settlement in Arunachal Pradesh and the exemption of Inner Line Permit”.

He pointed out that this had been a long-pending issue on which many political decisions were taken in the past.

“Also, the collective sentiments of the people of Arunachal Pradesh, especially that of the organisations that are agitating for the interests of the state have to be given careful consideration as per the provisions of the law,” he said.
