Itanagar, Jan 28 (PTI) The All Arunachal Pradesh

Students'' Union (AAPSU) on Thursday staged a protest over

China reportedly establishing a village in the Upper Subansiri

district of the state.

The apex students'' body of the state along with 16 of

its federal units and community-based organisation staged a

sit-in at Indira Gandhi Park here, demanding the Centre to

"act tough" on the issue.

The union, armed with banners and placards, condemned

the nefarious activities of China and slammed the Centre for

remaining "silent" over the issue.

Speaking to reporters, AAPSU president Hawa Bagang

blamed the Centre for its "failure in protecting" the state

from "foreign incursion".

"The AAPSU is ready to fight against the Chinese

military if the central government authorises," Bagang said.

Bagang urged the MPs from the state to be vocal on

such matters, concerning the interest of Arunachal Pradesh and

its people.

He also appealed to the central government for road

and telecommunication connectivity in the border areas,

besides releasing developmental packages and increasing

military deployment in the frontier state.

"The symbolic protest is a message to the Centre that

the indigenous people of the state reject the repeated claim

of China over the state''s territory," AAPSU general secretary

Tobom Dai said.

The people of the state are frustrated against the

lackadaisical attitude of the Centre towards such serious

issues, he said.

Stating that China''s claim over the state''s territory

is an old issue, Dai blamed the successive central governments

led by the Congress and the BJP for not taking the matter

seriously.

Pritam Bhai Sonam urged the government for collective measures

and not to play the blame game when the issue is of national

interest. PTI UPL
