Itanagar : Five days after massive violent protest broke out in the North Eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh regarding the state government’s decision to provide PRC to 6 non-tribal communities of Arunachal Pradesh, AP CM Pema Khandu has assured that peace is restoring back in the state.
The situation in Arunachal Pradesh was utterly dismal and violent with loot and arson continuing unabated and many government cars and property were burnt by the Arunachalis in protest against the state government’s decision.
The situation turned so violent in Arunachal Pradesh in the recent days that an angry mob torched the official residence of Deputy CM Chowna Mein.
Arunachal Police and armed forces had to resort ot lathi charge, tear gas and firing to disperse the angry mob. Three Arunachali youths died in the police firing while many others injured in the lathi charge.
The mayhem created in Arunachal Pradesh over the PRC turned the entire state especially the capital city Itanagar into a den of loot and arson.
CM Pema Khandu suspects of a political conspiracy behind the violent protests in the state.
Family members of the youths who died in the Police firing have each being given a remuneration of Rs 20 lakhs each as well as one government job to one member of each of the victim’s family.
