The newly created organisation, United Arunachal Indigenous Peoples Forum (UAIPF) today staged Dharna and protest against the recent statement of Dy CM Chowna Mein on issue of Permanent Resident Certificate (PRC) as a new year gift for the Non-APST residing in Lekang of Namsai district and Vijoynagar of Changlang district.
The day long dharna and protest was organised here at Tennis court, IG Park today wherein hundreds of indigenous youths took part in protest.
Talking with the media UAIPF Organising Chairman Laffe Paffe said that it is very unfortunate on the part of Deputy Chief Minister Chowna advocating Non-APST instead of several burning issue confronting the society apart of developmental matters.
we may become minority in our own state by taking decision to provide PRC of Lekang and Vijoyanagar and some non APST. Large number of non APST are residing in other parts of state, they may also demand for the same. This is a very sentimental issue which have hurt the sentiment of the indigenous people of state, Laffe added .
This is a political motivated statement ,a and if the Dy CM standstill with his statement, we will not sit idle and continue to fight against, he said.
We are not from any political party but indigenous people and compelled to form platform to fight the issue and soon we will garner support from all likeminded Arunachalees. We will soon hit the street and launched a mass democratic movement on this issue.
