Keep away from unnecessary controversy
I, being one of the conscious citizens of Arunachal Pradesh presently holding the post of President, All Arunachal Contractor Welfare Association, a registered NGO, have been fighting for social and economic uplifment of the common masses and therefore use to file numbers of suit before the legal authority for reddressal of the grievances and to follow the established norms. People benefited out of it in relating to contract works or other development activities in the sectors like road, bridge, building, sanitation, electrification, medical and health care and public distribution System etc.
Regarding the recent press statement in media and FIR lodged in Itanagar PS against
Minister Nabam Tuki by some persons namely Bukhe Flago, Mama Ragam, Jaro Nayu, Guruk
Purdung, who are claiming themselves to be the leaders of All Arunachal Pradesh Right
To Information Activist Organization (AAPRTIAO), I would like to say that the FIR
lodged against Tuki is nothing but purely politically motivated. They are not the

Think twice before applying for jobs
Many NGOs and organizations who claimed to be registered under Society and Indian
Trust Acts are giving advertisements in various news papers inviting applications
for jobs with attractive payment and perk. May be some are genuine but I would urge
my brethren of Arunachal Pradesh to be very cautious before responding to such advertisements,
because two years back I have fallen victim of such one such false organization.
Application form was forwarded from one organization through village panchayat for
the post of education workers with Rs. 10,000/-
Recently one such organization, Bharat Vikas Pariyojana, based in Bihar has advertised (AT 1/8/2011) for various posts for working in Arunachal under some education programme for children. Total no. of post are more than 4000 with alluring pays. I don’t say such advertisement is not believable. But I warn our people to confirm and clarify the genuineness of the organizations before applying for job with fees. Collection of such fees may exceed crore of rupees, who knows they are only after the money?
