ITANAGAR, Sep 24:  The Nyishi Youth Welfare Association (NYWA) has served seven days ultimatum to the state government and submitted a memorandum to the Governor demanding the arrest of one Akhilesh Pratap Singh from Uttar Pradesh for his alleged derogatory remarks against social activist Toko Sheetal.
Following the failure to address the demand, the association has threatened to call a democratic movement or even a bandh call in the state capital, Itanagar.     
The association in a memorandum submitted to the Governor also demanded to clarify if Singh is financially backed by Chief Minister Pema Khandu or if any political support is being provided to him for disrupting the foot march by the team of Arunachal Against Corruption (AAC).  
Addressing the media person at the press club here today, President NYWA Tai Talley said that Singh has been   repeatedly seen threatening and using derogatory remarks on Toko Sheetal through social media since she entered Uttar Pradesh.
He said that Singh should be brought to the state within seven days and a public apology should be conducted at IG Park. Else, he can also release a video apology through any media but it should be satisfactory to the public of the state.
“Singh who has no idea of the state and its political affairs has been disrupting the movement for no reason. This clearly indicates that he is somewhere being supported by the state government, which needs to be clarified to the public,” he said.
Talley also said that Singh has been spreading wrong information about Toko Sheetal being involved in sex racket. His statement is not only tarnishing the image of the state but also the image of a social leader fighting against corruption.
Therefore, we want a proper investigation of the entire information received by Singh over state issues and other personal negative remarks made on Sheetal, he added. 
Singh even went on to threaten Sheetal. Hence, the association now feels that there is political support from the state to create problems in the movement against corruption initiated by the AAC.
