Arunachal files review plea in SC

The Arunachal Pradesh government has refused to grant refugee status to the Bangladeshi Chakmas and Hajong people who migrated in
1964-69 and urged the Supreme Court to review its judgment. In its recent review petition before the apex Supreme Court, the state government said that the court passed the judgment without hearing the stategovernment. 

It further told the court that out of total 4637 applications, 4213 applications for citizenship do not fulfill the criteria of signing of oath of allegiance, as per the
second schedule to the Citizenship Act, 1955 and police verification of character and antecedents required re-verification.

The apex court in September asked the government to accord refugee status to the Chakma Hajong people directing it to take all necessary steps to protect them
as they are facing hostility from the local population.
