BJP expresses solidarity with fasting student
Itanagar: BJP today expressed solidarity with the Ujum Perying, aspirant of APPSCCE (Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission Combined Examination) 2014, who is on a 72-hour hunger strike supported by her colleagues, against the paper leakage episode of September 24 last.
“We express our solidarity to Perying and her supporters who have set an example of non-violent protest to express grievances. Whatever, she is doing is good for our younger generation,” party’s Spokesman R K Khrimey told reporters here.
Referring to the inquiry by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) ordered by the state government to go into the details of the issue, the BJP leader said that enquiry was a different issue but the Commission could take a quick concrete decision so that the future career of the students were not jeopardized.
“We will soon approach the governor to apprise him the matter and to request him to call off the entire members and chairman of the Commission and to re-conduct the entire examination with a fresh set of members and a new chairman,” he added.
Meanwhile, defying all assurancesfrom the government as well as the Commission, Perying continued her fast for the third day today flanked by her colleagues and members from variuous organizations.
