The Nyishi Elite Society (NES) has condemned the “character assassination campaign” against its youth organization, the All Nyishi Youth Association (ANYA), “by some unscrupulous people on social media”.

In a press release, the organization has urged the administration and the police to take suo moto cognizance and initiate stringent action against antisocial elements misusing social media.

NES said it took strong exception to “those who painted wrong caricature of ANYA President Byabang Joram without any iota of truth and logic attached to it.”

It said that “the ANYA displayed a high degree of maturity by calling off the (proposed 36-hour) bandh” as “the common people might have faced the hardship coupled with unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic situation and the state assembly session was considering one of its demand of amending the Arunachal Pradesh Entrepreneurship Act, 2015, for restoration of Rs 50 lakhs on work order system.”

The NES pointed out that, apart from this, there was no reason for the association to go ahead with the bandh when all the demands raised by the ANYA were resolved by the state government.

The society said that issues regarding autonomous regions were placed in the legislative assembly on August 27 and a resolution was passed for recommendation to enforce the 6th Schedule in the entire state.

“With all the demands addressed by the government, there was no rationale to go ahead with the bandh call,” it said, and informed that “the NES would initiate social actions against such person(s) misusing social media to defame the institution of ANYA and its incumbents.”
