ITANAGAR, Aug 11: The All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union (AAPSU) has blamed the state government for poor health and water facilities that led to the death of 12 minors in Pongkong and Longliang villages of Tirap district due to diarrhoea outbreak.
Speaking to the media, President AAPSU, Tana Dozi Tara slammed the state government for its failure to provide basic amenities to the poor villagers.  "AAPSU condemns the state government policies and blames it for the incident that led to the death of 12 innocent children just because of diarrhoea. This is the complete failure of the Heath Department, and  we also blame the District administration, local MLA for their negligence," he said.
There are many schemes like Jal Jeevan Mission to provide water facilities but sad to say that till now people of villages like Longliang and Pongkong are deprived of such facilities. The PHED Department has failed to provide potable water to the common public, the union said.
"AAPSU takes this incident very seriously and we urge the state government to immediately provide basic facilities to the villagers and also in every school," Dozi said.
The AAPSU President also urged the Chief Minister and Health Minister to establish health facilities in the interior areas of the state. In this era of digital India, not having basic facilities for health and drinking water is shameful and a complete negligence. The state government should immediately look into the matter and confer the required compensation to the victims, he said.
