Participants in the meeting observed a one-minute-silence as a mark of respect to late Prof. Tamo Mibang, former Vice-Chancellor, RGU who passed away recently.
AFFRC Chairman Taduram Darang in the meeting briefed the gathering about the list of “Unsung Heroes” whose names were submitted to the Chairman of Research and Documentation Committee of Arunachal Pradesh, Rajiv Gandhi University, for acceptance and further submission to the competent authorities for duly recognition. Darang further urged all the participants to gather more oral-histories from their respective village elders so that true and unknown history of Anglo-Abor wars could be forwarded to the Research & Documentation Team of RGU through the AFFRC at the earliest possible.
Many presidents and general secretaries of various organizations and clans participated in the discussion.  DIPRO, Pasighat
