The ASU (Apatani Students Union) called 12 hrs bandh from 5 am to 5 pm yesterday, demanding 2 (two) Assembly Constituency for Ziro-I (poster below).
With nothing to do, the whole day I was trying to figure out how the 2-Assembly Constituency for Ziro-I would have affected them? I couldn’t figure out. Wasn’t it the duty of the denizens to demand for the same instead of Students Union? Or was the students union taken for a ride at the behest of political aspirants? Why students did not raise voice against the irregularities in appointment of teachers instead, which would have directly affected them? Well, I guess there are lots of personal stakes involved.
And for God’s sake, would any one make them understand or put sense in them that it would only make the life of a common man miserable by a day or two till such Bandh is imposed and that it wouldn’t affect even the State Government, forget about Delhi. They are just playing into the hands of politicians. Instead, why don’t they concentrate on student’s community welfare activities?
