The Save Arunachal Youth Association demanded the suspension of Papum Pare Deputy Commissioner Pige Ligu for his alleged involvement in the “renaming” episode. Kimin is in Papum Pare district of Arunachal Pradesh.

The association also gave Chief Minister Pema Khandu a 10-day deadline to suspend the Papum Pare Deputy Commissioner or face a stir.

The association also submitted a letter to Arunachal Pradesh Governor B.D. Mishra seeking an inquiry into the Kimin incident.
