ITANAGAR, Nov 26:  The All Nyishi Students Union (ANSU) has served a seven day ultimatum to the state government to fulfil its charter of demands failing which the union has threatened to call a 36-hr bandh in the Itanagar Capital Region as a mark of protest on December 6 next.
Addressing the press conference, General Secretary Gora Rikam informed that a meeting of the central executive members of ANSU was held on Thursday and decision was taken to go  ahead with the demands of the union.
 “We have resolved to go ahead with 36 hours Capital bandh as second phase of our agitation since the government is yet to fulfil our demands,” he said. However, Rikam stated that if the government fulfils their demands, the union would reconsider their decision.
President  Nabam Dodum stated that the union is ready to sit for a round table discussion if the government invites them to resolve the issue. “If they invite us for a roundtable conference to resolve the issue, we are ready,” he said.
ANSU President further clarified that FIR is not a primary concern for the ANSU, however, the union is hurt by the registering of FIR against them despite verbal intimation to the Chief Minister's Office about the minor altercation with the security personnel at the Secretariat gate.
 The ANSU’s charter of demands includes immediate transfer of Education Commissioner Niharika Rai and withdrawal of FIR registered against the union.
Earlier, the ANSU had submitted  fourteen points charter of demands to the Chief Minister that include immediate cancellation of tender for procurement and supply of school uniforms by the director of secondary education, corpus fund for teachers’ welfare for every school of the state, including Nyishi-inhabited areas, to carry out curriculum activities, immediate recruitment of TGTs/PGTs against sanctioned vacant posts, revocation of the DBT system, introduction of uniformity of school fees for various private schools; closure of all zero enrolment schools, and proper utilization of infrastructure for better purpose and regularisation of 400 contractual teachers working under SSA(ISSE).
