Chakma and Hajong refugees set to get citizenship in Arunachal Pradesh

Official sources said that the Government of India is all set to grant citizenship to Chakma and Hajong refugees, who have been based in Arunachal Pradesh for over 50 years, reports The Indian Express on May 19. Union Home Ministry officials said that while consultations are on with the State Government, the citizenship will not entitle the refugees to rights enjoyed by Scheduled Tribes (STs) in the State, including land ownership. The State Government has been opposing the proposal of providing citizenship to these communities for a long time and since 1990, the All Arunachal Pradesh Studentsí Union (AAPSU) has been demanding their ouster from the State. However, officials said that the Centre may propose that Chakmas and Hajongs be issued Inner Line Permits, allowing them to travel and work but not possess land rights.
