Arunachal killing an act of terrorism: State BJP


Dimapur, May 23: The BJP Nagaland has condemned the assassination of Arunachal NPP MLA, Tirong Aboh and his convoy in an ambush in Tirap District on May 21 where 10 people were killed.
State BJP president Temjen Imna Along said the assassination cannot be termed as personal to late Tirong Aboh, but it is an act of terrorism.
“Such dastardly act is devoid of common sense and cannot be accepted in the present set up of democratic world. Allowing such barbaric acts to continue will only take out civilization back to stone age,” said State BJP president in a release.
Stating that the case should not only be left to the Arunachal Government to tackle, but it should be a joint and concerted effort of State forces and central forces to joint investigate and operate together until justice is served, the party said unless nipped in the bud, it will raise its ugly head and cause serious national security problem.
The party also expressed heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families.
