AAPSU has also sought CBI enquiry into the whole episode and action.
Briefing the media, AAPSU President Hawa Bagang informed that what has made to deface the name of Arunachal Pradesh with white paper at Kimin during the inauguration of Kimin-Potin road at Kimin on June 17 wherein Union Minister of Defence Rajnath Singh, Assam CM, Arunachal Pradesh CM, Union Minister of state (Sports & YA), local MLA and others were present is beyond the imagination and understanding.
It is made to know that a letter was served to the Papum Pare administration on June 12 wherein it was written that a programme will be held at Bilgarh in Assam but actually it was held at RTC, ITBP Kimin which is well within in Papum Pare district, Arunachal Pradesh and motive of BRO behind is not understand by anyone and the act is highly condemnable. As per information all the places where Arunachal Pradesh name was there was passed by white paper and the reason is best known to them. Bagang said.
The Kimin-Potin road connect several China bordering district of state and others which include Kurung Kumey, Kra Daadi, Upper Subansiri, Kamle, Lower Subansiri and others and the act of pasting white paper on the names is a matter of concern and need to unearth and the whole episode need to be enquire by CBI. As it is a matter of greater concern why the name of the state was missing on the inaugural day and the premier agency of the country can unearth the episode and action should be taken as per law. Bagang said.
A team of AAPSU has been to Kimin to study the issue and we will sit on Tuesday and make a decision. If the BRO chief engineer does not apologize to the people of state and country the AAPSU will launch a statewide movement against the BRO. Bagang said. at the same time the BRO offices in the name of the state operating inter-state boundary should immediately shift to its designated location/district of state. Bagang added.
