ANSU defers shutdown after govt’s assurances

ITANAGAR, Nov 29: Following assurances from the Chief Minister Office (CMO) in resolving the issues, the All Nyishi Students Union (ANSU) on Monday announced to defer its proposed 36 hours Capital bandh on December 6 next.

The unanimous decision to defer the second phase of bandh, was taken during an executive body meeting of the union, ANSU President Nabam Dodum told reporters at Press Club here.

Chief Minister Pema Khandu has assured to resolve the two point demands of the union in a meeting which is scheduled on December 13 next, Dodum said quoting CMO officials.

He added that the union received a letter from the CMO on Sunday, where Khandu requested the ANSU to defer its proposed bandh.

“If the government failed to fulfill our demand after the meeting, we will go ahead with our 36-hour Capital bandh without further notice,” Dodum emphatically said.

The letter from the CMO informed that the chief minister is keen to resolve the issues of the union. However, due to pre-committed meetings and pre-scheduled district tours, the chief minister would be engaged till December 12, Dodum informed quoting the letter.

The letter added that the bandh culture is not healthy for the development of the state. Moreover, it will adversely affect all the denizens of the Capital region and not in the larger interest of the people.
