Reacting on the arrest of PAJSC members, the Arunachal Pradesh Women Welfare Society ( APWWS ) today stated that “It’s disheartening to see the arrest of PAJSC members”.

In a press statement Kani Nada Maling, President, APWWS stated that “  The  observance of a black day by the PAJSC  highlights the unmet charter of demands which the State Govt. had given them in written”.

Maling said “ Addressing systematic corruption in recruitment processes is needed  to ensure a fair and equitable job environment. It’s disheartening to see the arrest of the members. It is crucial for the state government to reflect on its failure to fulfill commitments made to PAJSC”.

“As a mother organisation, it is heartbreaking to see our own children in such situation ; they are not anti- social elements. Building trust among young people is essential  for a welfare government, said Maling.

Further Maling said that “ The systematic corruption in the recruitment process/job for cash is like a parasite which will damage the whole ecosystem. We appeal for their release and peaceful resolution of their long-pending fiasco , so that the aspirants can prepare for their examination” .
