ITANAGAR, Aug 19: After detecting 2,205 inner line permit (ILP) defaulters in just two days, the ILP issue committee of the All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) has decided to temporarily suspend its phase-1 of “Operation Clean Drive” from Sunday.
The AAPSU launched the state-wide “Operation Clean Drive” against illegal immigrants and ILP violators from August 17.
Informing this in a statement, the AAPSU said that the two-day operation saw detection of 2205 ILP violators all across the state as per reports submitted to the Union by its various district units.
Stating that some of the area incharges and DSU’s are yet to submit their reports due to communication problems, the AAPSU said once they submit their reports the number of ILP violators would go up.
These violators should be immediately deported from the state and necessary actions should be initiated under the laid down provisions of BEFR 1873, the statement said.
There are also apprehensions and reports from various districts that ILP violators caught during the “Operation Clean Drive” are being let off without any action. The authorities concerned should look into it with the right earnest, the AAPSU said.
A consultative meeting with all the district unit has been scheduled on August 23 whereby further consultations and discussions shall be held. The phase 2 of “Operation Clean Drive” shall be announced after the consultative meet, the statement said.
Representatives of the ILP issue Committee, AAPSU shall meet the state government representatives on this issue. “It has also come to the knowledge of the Union during the drive that various shopkeepers and brokers (mostly non APSTs) were involved in issuing fake ILPs,” the AAPSU claimed adding that stern action should also be launched against them.
The AAPSU and the entire OCD team would also like to acknowledge the support and cooperation of the administration and the police including the citizens who had wholeheartedly rendered support to the AAPSU during the “Operation Clean Drive”.
