Itanagar, Aug. 26: The All Nyishi Youth Association today served a seven-day ultimatum to the Arunachal Pradesh government, demanding the fulfilment of its eight-point charter of demands within September 3.
The president of the association, Ngurang Changriang, said they would launch a phased agitation, if the state government failed to fulfil their demands.
The first phase will begin with a 12-hour capital complex bandh on September 4.
The demands include the provision of employment for the people of Gumto and Borum who were affected by the construction of the railway line from Itanagar to Harmuti and the immediate shifting of the police checkpost from Gumto I to Gumto II village. Other demands are the construction of circle office headquarters at Gumto under Doimukh circle and a compensation package for the owners of immovable properties and land used by the central government for the construction of the railway line.
The association also criticised the state government for its apathy towards the Inner Line Permit (ILP) issue.
