The All Nyishi Students’ Union (ANSU) has called a 12-hour long ‘capital bandh’ in Itanagar on Tuesday, 23 Nov 2021, in order to put forward their two demands. The bandh has been called from 5 am to 5 pm.
During the bandh the roads of the capital complex including National Highway 415 wore a deserted look as commercial and private vehicles, school and college buses were off the roads. Major business establishments, financial institutions, petrol pumps, shopping mall, markets complex etc remain closed.
ANSU,S two demands are ”Immediate Transfer of Present Commissioner (Education), Niharika Rai from the State and Immediate dropping of criminal case against the Team ANSU”.
Meanwhile, state Home Minister Bamang Felix has urged the ANSU to withdraw the bandh call. He said that the government has already accepted the 14-point demands of the ANSU and hence the bandh call is not justified.
The Administration of Itanagar capital region (ICR) also termed the 24-hour capital bandh proposed by the Union, as illegal and unlawful. But the ANSU on Monday said they would go ahead with the bandh on 23 Nov 2021.
