Arunachal Students’ Union stages protest over ‘Chinese village’ reports



The All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) with 16 of its federal units and community-based organisations on Thursday staged a sit-in demonstration at Indira Gandhi Park over reports of China establishing a village in the Upper Subansiri district of the state.

The union condemned the "nefarious" activities of China and slammed the Centre for remaining “silent” over the issue.

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 allows,” Bagang said.

Bagang urged the MPs from the state to be vocal on such matters concerning the interest of Arunachal Pradesh and its people.

They also demanded the Centre to “act tough” on the issue.
