AAPSU to oppose Union Government's decision on Chakma-Hajong refugees

All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union (AAPSU) is opposing the decision of the Union Government to grant citizenship to all Chakma and Hajong refugees living in the Northeast, reports The Sentinel. “The decision of the Centre will spark social unrest in the state and we will oppose granting of citizenship to them (Chakma and Hajong refugees) within the territory of the state,” AAPSU ‘general secretary’ Tobom Dai told reporters here. "The Chakma and Hajong refugees will not be entitled to the rights enjoyed by Scheduled Tribes in Arunachal Pradesh, including land ownership. But they might be given inner line permits required for 'foreigners' in the state to travel and work," an unnamed Union Home Ministry official said adds The Telegraph. Chakma and Hajong refugees were rehabilitated mostly in Arunachal Pradesh in 1964-69 by the Centre, following their escape from the Chittagong Hill Tracts in Bangladesh.
