ITANAGAR, The All Nyishi Youth Association (ANYA) on Monday announced a 36-hour band call on January 13 after Chief Minister, Pema Khandu twice failed to clarify the allegations of corruption against him and his family members leveled by the organization unearthed through RTI despite the expiry of the two ultimatums.
Earlier, ANYA had given an ultimatum of 15 days to Chief Minister, Pema Khandu to clear the various allegations of corruption. Another 7 days were also served after the expiry of the 15 days ultimatum to clarify but failed to evoke any response from CM.
In a press conference held at Arunachal Press Club (APC) here on Monday, ANYA, President, Bybang Joram said that the 36-hour bandh call was announced due to Khandu’s careless attitude towards the union’s demand.
“We are not against Pema Khandu or any political party. The CM still has two days left before the bandh call if he wants to clarify the allegations of corruption,” Joram said.
Joram said the union waited for more than a month in the hope that the CM would clarify if he was clean or he can clarify in public or in media. he said.
When asked about the pre-board exam coinciding with the bandh call, Joram said, “ANYA’s members enforcing the bandh will escort students who take the exam to examination centers during the bandh period.
The bandh will start from 5 am of January 13 and end on 14th January evening. Emergency services will be exempted from the purview of the bandh call. He said.
We are raising the issue not only for us but for entire community and state as it is related with the entire state and accordingly everyone should support the issue. He said adding that he apologize for declaration of bandh call with a very short duration of time.
