Dear, AAPSU leaders, please understand that Arunachal Pradesh will take another 1000 years to be at par with TRIPURA. Come to Tripura and see how harmoniously we are living. You have less knowledge about the basic things in granting citizenship to the Chakmas and Hajong. You see your %%% history and confirm me if it says that you are the original son of the soil. Shame on you, that you have no faith on SC verdict. I have seen your people and your supporter. Most of them are headless and brainless. They know only how to get into unnecessary controversy and arguments. I have seen many Arunachalee students who are very reserved, timid and lawless when they come to study outside Arunachal Pradesh. Please behave in such a way where your head will be be held high throughout the world. Dont be like a frog who is in the well. The world is much bigger than the well. Come on many development things are needs to be brought for Arunchal Pradesh. Just accept the Chakma and Hajongs and become the part of building the nation stronger.
