Rendering a tight administrative slap upon the various political parties and NGOs pitching their political agenda intensively much ahead of Legislative Assembly election in 49th Bordumsa-Diyun Constituency in Changlang District of Arunachal Pradesh, the Additional Deputy Commissioner of Bordumsa exercising his judicial power has issued an order putting restrictions upon the parties concerned in conducting any meetings across Bordumsa Circle.
The order categorically reads, ‘some political parties, NGOs, associations and unions are conducting meetings, rallies, in Bordumsa circle without permission from the ADC, Bordumsa’ adding, ‘such meetings and rallies are likely to violate the peaceful atmosphere of this circle and likely to affect the law and order situation of the circle sometimes leading to traffic problems and damage to public property’.
The order though without quoting any appropriate section to this effect has further made it mandatory on the parts of the interested parties to obtain permission from the competent authority at least five days prior to holding any meetings or rallies so that the administrative machinery may initiate and provide security arrangement to thwart any untoward designs and situations as the case may be arising out of any unpleasant situations thereby for common good and overall peace in the area.
It is pertinent to add here that the said Assembly constituency has become one of the hot beds in the entire eastern Parliamentary constituency in Arunachal Pradesh wherein various heavy weight contender ironically almost all under the saffron umbrella have been reportedly pushing hard to build confidence among the voters in the constituency through different formats including meetings and rallies to realize their political end in the next Assembly election slated in 2019.
‘Even the BJP state president Tapir Gao and the Chief Minister Pema Khandu has already smelt the rat among the party leaders and has earlier directed the party high command to decide and declare their party candidate for the same much ahead of the Assembly election to overcome the existing tug of war among the self portrayed candidates ‘, informed one of the BJP high voltage candidates already in the row.
Meanwhile, the said legal restriction has started generating strong reactions among the leaders mostly already in the race and their respective supporters on one hand while a section of politically conscious people lauds the interference of the administration terming it ‘a relief from almost daily monotonous affairs of meetings by different leaders and party workers of the same political is finally assured’.
