Arunachal MP Sanjoy calls for nodal cell to prevent another NE exodus
Guwahati, Aug 29 (ANI): A majority of the northeastern students or workers who fled from southern India were from Assam, it became clear during an inter-active session of State Government officers and deputy resident commissioners convened by Takam Sanjoy, the Member of Parliament from Arunachal West.
While there was no impact on students or workers from Meghalaya and Sikkim, there was some impact on students from Mizoram, Tripura, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, and Nagaland with about 100, 50, 200, 150 and 350 students and working people reaching their respective states.
Sanjoy apprised the north east state government officers and DRCs of the outcome of the Arunachal goodwill mission he led to Bangalore, Mysore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune and Mumbai to defuse the situation.
The team including Delhi Arunachal Bhawan DRC KN Damo and Congress leader Likha Maj was the emissary of Chief Minister Nabam Tuki.
Expressing serious concern over the present situation in Assam and the repeated bandh calls, which was having a direct bearing on the people of NE in other parts of the country, Sanjoy called for a serious introspection to pit the house in order, keeping in mind that Assam is considered the face of NE.
He pointed out that the massive exodus of NE people was shocking that jolted the mainland and caught the state governments off guard as it was unexpected and the reason still not known and reminded the 1947 exodus.
Calling for setting up a nodal cell for monitoring the situation while preparing a database of the number of students and working people of the NE region living in various parts of the country, he said none of the students and working people had given any specific cases of threat.
Most of the state governments had set up helpline and their top ranking leaders had rushed to the affected states, Assam principal secretary (Disaster management) Atul Chaturvedi informed that the Assam government had already deputed commissioner, secretary and DGP level officers to coordinate with the respective state governments for the safety of the students, their early return and ensure protection of the jobs of the NE people on their return.
Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Singh Chavan's close aide Ashis Dua also sought a complete data for the government to walk extra mile for the people of NE working or studying in that state.
It was unanimously decided to inform the students as per the advice of Sanjoy that they should report to their educational institutions before September 10 so that they could avail the special dispensation on attendance consented to by the respective state governments. (ANI)
