Ruling government fails to bring up the matter at the assembly session on the ground of limited time as they were unable to call meeting for discussion of the proposals.
Showing disappointment, Apabi Devi also said that the state government seems to neglect the movement to protect the indigenous people of the state of both valley and hill areas. Such in-humanitarian act of the state government is agonizing by the people of the state, she added.

The agitations being carried out for the protection of indigenous people and implementation of ILPS in the state is not only for JCILPS members but it is for all the people of the state which includes government employees, MLAs, etc, she added.
Apabi further said that the excess police action against the peaceful agitators is intolerable where many have suffered minor and major injuries due to the use of tear gas and mob bomb against them. Some are still undergoing treatment, she asserted.
