An all-party meet held under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Nabam Tuki unanimously authorised the Arunachal Pradesh government to take legal and necessary steps with regard to the Supreme Court judgment of September 17 to safeguard the welfare and interest of the indigenous tribes of the state.
The ruling government in the state as well as all political parties of the state are not against the grant of Indian citizenship to Chakmas and Hajongs but objects to their permanent settlement in Arunachal Pradesh and their exclusion from the inner line provisions (ILP), which will be in contradiction to in-force Acts and Regulations like the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation, 1873, the Scheduled District Act, 1874, the Assam Frontier Tract Regulation, 1880, the Assam Frontier Forest Regulation, 1891, the Chin Hills Regulations, 1896 and the Assam Frontier (Administration & Justice) Regulation, 1945 (1 of 1945).
All Parties were also unanimous in denouncing the politicising of the refugee issue by any individual or group. They appealed all not to spread hatred and misconception or target any individual or community particularly through social media.
