In a memorandum signed by ATSUM President Muan Tombing and general secretary Vareiyo Shatsang urged prime minister Narendra Modi to impose President’s Rule in the restive north eastern state.

The students body apprised Modi of the simmering situation in the state which is a fit case for President’s Rule.

The students further stated that the agitation which commenced more than two months ago have affected normal life in the state as a whole and have caused untold hardships especially in remote and hard to access tribal populated areas.
