Capital bandh evokes mixed response

| Staff REPORTER |

ITANAGAR, Nov 28: The dawn-to-dusk Capital Complex bandh called by Arunachal Youth Organization (AYO) today against the state govt’s alleged failure to address their nine-point demands evoked mixed response with no untoward incident reported from anywhere, barring burning of tyres on the roadside in the morning hours.

Normal activities went on as usual in Itanagar as shops remained open and all kinds of vehicles were plying on the road. The govt offices, financial and educational institutions also functioned by and large during the bandh period. However, markets in Naharlagun were seen closed in the morning hours and opened later.

Meanwhile, according to the officials from Capital administration, around six persons have been detained for allegedly trying to cripple the normal life in the capital.

The officials further claimed that all shops and market remained opened and all kinds of vehicles were plying without interruption.

The Organization has been demanding for continuation of Governor’s office of memorandum order on officiating, functional and “out of turn” promotion, initiation of CBI enquiry into infamous multi-crore PDS scam and abduction drama of SIC chief M J Chauhan at Tipi, eviction drive against illegally encroached govt quarters within Capital and district headquarters, appointment of chairman/vice chairman from among the legislators, early construction of Greenfield Airport, revocation of district based entrepreneurship Act, revocation of Mon and Patkai Autonomous Councils and making late CM Kalikho Pul’s diary public.
