CoSAAP & Seva Dal appeal AAPSU to withdraw 36-hour bandh

 In view of 36-hour state-wide bandh called by the All Arunachal Pradesh Students' Union (AAPSU), the Confederation of Service Associations of Arunachal Pradesh (CoSAAP) has appealed to various organisations of the state to minimise the bandh culture saying bandhs only bring sufferings in all form to common people.

In AAPSU's on-going agitation to fulfill its 7-point charter of demands, the apex sdudent's body has called its proposed bandh from July 9, as part of their second phase of agitation.

On the first phase, the union had given 12-hour Capital bandh on June 25.

In a release, CoSAAP urged the government to provide adequate securities to the employees during bandh calls and issue proper instructions before one or two days of proposed bandh, otherwise, 'employees tend to remain back home due to security reasons.'

Appreciating the AAPSU's concern for release of salaries of government. CoSAAP clarified that employees are getting their monthly salaries on regular basis. 'CoSAAP doesn't authorise any organisation to raise their issues with government as CoSAAP are constantly taking up their grievances with the government.

Therefore, CoSAAP appealed to the Apex Student organisation not to mix up students' grievances with that of the employees.

On the AAPSU's demand for termination of service of SDPO, Bomge Kamduk, CoSAAP said the officer was on bonafied uniformed law and order duty and the incident happened was inside the police station and as such, question of dereliction of duties and termination of service doesn't arise. The officer has only rendered his normal duty, it said.

Discussing other important issues, the Apex Employees Organisation sincerely requested the heads of departments concerned to monitor the public utility delivery systems regularly and constantly reach out to the common man's requirement.

Meanwhile, the Congress Seva Dal has appealed the apex student body to withdraw their proposed agitation as such bandhs were not a solution to fulfill their charter of demands.

The Seva Dal appealed AAPSU that instead of going for bandh, they should find other democratic means to solve their demands.

'Such bandh calls not only hamper the development process of the government, but also affect effect badly to the common people and daily wage earners', it added.
