Arunachal Pradesh: AAPACSU stages hunger strike over "Chinese village"


ITANAGAR: The All Arunachal Pradesh Anti-Corruption Students’ Union (AAPACSU) on Sunday, organised a 24-hour hunger strike at Indira Gandhi Park in Itanagar demanding the Indian government to take back the land in Upper Subansiri, which was allegedly annexed by China.

AAPACSU President Tana Ganesh Tara said that the union's demands are for the country's integrity.

“This is a serious issue and, it should be solved before it creates further tension in the border areas of the state,” Tara was quoted by Arunachal times.

He also urged Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu, Union Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports Kiren Rijiju and Lok Sabha MP Tapir Gao to address the issue with the centre.
