According to reports, state tribal youth association All Nashi Youth Association CM Pema Khandu has been accused of being involved in a Rs 2,000 crore government funding scam. A petition was also filed in the Supreme Court in this regard, but after the petition was rejected, the association called for a 36-hour strike, which the government declared illegal.
Strike even after it is declared illegal
The government did everything possible to stop the strike. It was initially declared illegal, but the Internet was shut down in many areas, including Itanagar. Despite this the strike took place. More than 100 people were subsequently detained. Police said weapons such as slingshots and daggers were recovered from the detainees. The police say that the strike is the conspiracy to spread unrest and religious violence in the state through protest rallies.
