Itanagar: The Arunachal Pradesh Committee of the All Moran Students Union (AMSU) has called for a 12-hour bandh from 5 am on November 8 at Lekang in Namsai district of Arunachal Pradesh.
In a press release, the students’ organization said, “It is hereby notified that the first phase of 12-hour lakang bandh and road blockade by the All Moran Students’ Union (Arunachal Pradesh Committee) on 8 November 2023 till 5:00 am to 05:00 PM on NH-15 has been called in.
The bandh has been called in protest against the Arunachal Pradesh government’s failure to issue PRC and other rights to the indigenous Moran tribe of Lekang.
Therefore, we appeal to All Moran Students Union (Arunachal Pradesh Committee) to cooperate and observe the bandh call for complete protest.
However, the following exemptions are given during the first 12 hours of the closed call phase.
All types of school vehicles carrying students, students/candidates going to examinations or interviews, pharmacy, ambulance and other medical emergencies, movement of arms and paramilitary forces, fire brigade and milk vans.
Earlier in October, the All Moran Students’ Union (AMSU) protested the Arunachal Pradesh government’s alleged baseless decision to issue Permanent Residence Certificates (PRC) to the Moran community living in the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border areas for ages. The attitude was criticized.
The AMSU has threatened to launch a major agitation if the governments of Arunachal Pradesh and Assam continue to adopt a step-motherly attitude towards the Morans living in the region.
Demanding PRC in Arunachal Pradesh, the Moran community organized a massive gathering and rally in Namsai district as well.
