ITANAGAR, Mar 14: Renowned social worker and All India Mahila Congress Committee (AIMCC) general secretary, Jarjum Ete today clarified that she never supported giving PRC to non APST populace nor did she spell any words about PRC in her address at Lekang.
Ete’s clarification has come in the wake of the purported video wherein she and APCC president, Takam Sanjoy were allegedly seen supporting giving PRC to Non-APSTs. Consequentially, a controversy erupted wherein BJP, including various sections of society criticized the duo for adopting a double standard on the issue and politicizing the matter.
Ete also said that she would never do something which would be harmful to the indigenous people of the state. As far as the matter of the PRC issue is concerned, she reiterated that as a social worker since the last 30 years, she has been fighting for the rights of indigenous people and women empowerment. Elaborating her clarification, the AIMCC general secretary also said that as a head of Mahila Congress she appeared for the Congress campaign at Lekang and not with a purpose to hurt the interests of the people of the state. Further stressing on the issue on behalf of INC, Ete said “my belief is that the Congress party will never take any anti-indigenous stand nor will work to hurt the sentiments of people of the state.” Later Ete also revealed that she will be contesting the Lok Sabha election from Arunachal West parliamentary seat on Congress ticket.
