AAPSU submitted a representation to the Chief Minister demanding for the investigation and ouster of the capital DC, Prince Dhawan.
All Arunachal Pradesh Student’s union on October 15 will organise a protest rally in Itanagar to registered their protest against the anomalies in the disbursement of compensation for the Trans Arunachal Highway, four-laning of NH-415 from Chandranagar-Papu Nallah stretch.
This was informed by AAPSU General Secretary, Tobom Dai in a press conference held at press club on Tuesday.
The Union had earlier, submitted a representation to the Chief Minister demanding for the investigation and ouster of the capital complex deputy commissioner, Prince Dhawan.
Dai informed that under the direction of Chief Minister, AAPSU had a meeting with Chief Secretary but sadly there is invisible progress in this regards.
the student union also supports the voices raised by other forums and unions regarding TAH issue at various places of the state.
“In 2006, GoAP floated a notification which cites that in Township areas, the highway needs to be kept 30/30 and 40/40 metre in others. As per the notice, any government-owned land (Forest, Agricultural, and Horticulture) or property along the National Highway is exempted from compensation scheme.
In 2016-17, Sandeep Kumar, the then DC Capital Complex had also vide a notification which cites the same rule. But later in 2017, DC, Prince Dhawan had superseded previous notification and ordered to provide compensation to all the subjects, even highway width for Capital township area was reduced to 12/12 mtr from government’s kept 30/30 mtr. Even from the 12/12 mtr scheme, we have found that 4 meters of usable space are not there.” AAPSU President, Hawa Bagang claimed.
“We have decided to exert pressure on the government to ensure that the anomalies that have gone into executing the highway project in the Capital Complex be revisited and rectified. Even when the highway roads are being constructed, we do not see a solution to our traffic plight, the reduced width of the road will have no good outcome. The congestion will remain the same as usual. That is why AAPSU feels agitated.
