ITANAGAR, Aug 30: The All Nyishi Students Union (ANSU) has welcomed the statement made by the Chief Minister Pema Khandu and Union Minister for Law & Justice Kiren Rijiju to relocate the Chakma & Hajong community from the state.
The vexed Chakma & Hajong issue is a long pending unresolved issue of the state, for which many student leaders and others had sacrificed their lives, said General Secretary ANSU- Gora Rikam while speaking to reporters.
"As humans we respect them, and we have offered them our lands and facilities as a guest for last six decades but now they have to leave. Instead of acknowledging the favour, they captured our land and encroached forest lands," he said.
Chakma-Hajong are here temporarily, and people of Arunachal will never accept them as indigenous people. Moreover,it is a good gesture for them to resolve the long pending issue and support the decision for relocation, Rikam added.
ANSU also condemned the recent letter from ULFA (I) addressed to the Chief Minister to grant PRC to Assamese native residing in Arunachal. 
“We can't vouch for the authenticity of the letter but ULFA(I)  shouldn’t interfere in the internal matters of Arunachal Pradesh and refrain from issuing any statement that is not possible to be implemented in Arunachal," said the ANSU General Secretary.
