School girls taken ill after consuming drug-mixed food stuff

School Mayu-II were found in sick condition soon after they consumed food at a picnic
party here recently. They were immediately rushed to District Hospital and under-going
treatment under close supervision of Dr. A. Yirang.
It is suspected that some of the school boys mixed narcotics in foodstuff which they
consumed resulting in such health disorder.
"We have administered some medicines to the patients. We could not find out any case
of intoxication or any other chemicals that may lead to such health problem. They
might have consumed narcotics without their knowledge in heavy doses," Dr. A Yirang,
who was in emergency duty, said.
Blood samples were collected and sent for investigation, he informed.
Police also echoed Dr. Yirang and said consumption of drugs can not be denied as

Ziro, Dec 15: The team of volunteers of Future Generations Arunachal (FGA) returned
from a field trip to Talle Wildlife Sanctuary today. Sadhana Deori, Deputy Commissioner,
Lower Subansiri District who accompanied the volunteers of Future Generations Arunachal
(FGA) to Pange on December 11, 2009 had sent off the team with the message that the
Talle Valley is one of the last remains of wilderness in Arunachal Pradesh and needs
to be developed as a model of protected areas. She was accompanied by Hibu Tadii,
Divisional Forest Officer (DFO), Ziro and Kalung Bida, Range Officer. Ridi Bui, Range
Officer, Talle Wildlife Range also participated in the program. The field work is
a part of the project entitled “Community-based Conservation in Talle Wildlife Sanctuary
in Arunachal Pradesh” being carried out by FGA with support from Critical Ecosystem
Partnership Fund (CEPF) and Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and Environment
(ATREE). The project aims to document the relative wildlife abundance in the Talle
Wildlife Sanctuary and evolve a model for increased participation of community members
in conservation activities. A wildlife survey based on scientific method using camera
traps as well as the traditional knowledge of the indigenous people is being carried
out. The result will be widely disseminated by a series of workshops and awareness

A circus called ULFA
As we were enjoying the colourful parade at I G park on Independence Day in 2004,
there was an urgent message from a TV network. “There has been a bomb blast in Dhemaji
and we need you to cover it”. As simple as that. A friend offered to drive the crew
there and in no time, we were at the site of the blast. By the time, we reached the
site, the ground had been cordoned off and we were directed to go to the Hospital
if we needed any footage. We kept shooting and occasionally spoke to people. Honestly,
we did not know what to ask and what to shoot.
Somehow, we sent the tapes on time. There was a call to inform us that it was on
air. How professional!
After five long years, Paresh Barua, the Commander in Chief of United Liberation
Front of Asom better known as ULFA issued an apology for 15 August 2004 Dhemaji blast
that left at least 19 people dead and dozen other maimed for life. Many of the dead
were school children who had gathered at Dhemaji Parade Ground dressed in their best
Till now, ULFA had refused to acknowledge this fact.
The apology is a mockery of the pain that families of the dead had gone through.
No amount of apology or compensation will ever make their lives same again.
The man who called the shots in the entire region does not even have the decency
to admit it properly. He put the blame on a company of his own organisation which
has since been disbanded and in negotiations with the government. The drama does
not end there. He said that bombings were carried out without the knowledge of the
top leaders of the organisation. If Paresh Barua was seeking some public sympathy,
he miserably failed.
No amount of apology will ever be enough. ULFA leadership must realise that they
would never be forgiven for what they did on that fateful day. Putting the blame
on others make it worse. It is such a letdown for an organisation that spent thirty
years fighting the Republic of India for a sovereign Assam. More so, for the people
who supported what ULFA stood for.
Paresh Barua seem to have forgotten that ULFA did command respect in Assam and the
region before it went on a killing spree of Hindi speaking people and indulged in
extortions and kidnappings. Even though they continue to have prime time coverage
in media, today ULFA is in a terrible minority because of their own misdeeds. And
the apology is a joke at the costs of those parents who lost their dear ones on that
day in Dhemaji.
Trading ideologies for violence never helped anyone and it is time, Paresh Barua
and his organisation accept this fact. Some fact and truth remains.

Assam contemplating to establish poll stations in Arunachal: Wangham
ITANAGAR: Asom is contemplating to establish a polling station at Kamku Russa, Tanglam
Russa and Hasse Russa of Tirap Dist, alleged Parliamentary Secretary, Trade & Commerce
These villages are integral part of Tirap Dist and ironically, Assam is accusing
Arunachal to have encroached over their land, he said.
He requested the Chief Minister to immediately talk to his counterpart in Assam to
bring an amicable solution to the problem and to make security arrangement to thwart
any untoward incident.
Wangham further said that host of NGOs from Assam like AASU and Assam Jatiyavadi
Yuva Chatra Parishad is planning to conduct a meeting on Dec 22 at Nagahat supposedly
to solve the boundary problem.
Village authority and Panchayat Leaders of these three villages have been served
summon to attend the meeting. Under such circumstances, the villagers are apprehensive
of the sinister design of Assam and it fails to comprehend if any NGO can solve the
inter-state boundary problem without the knowledge of the State Government concerned,
Stay with the public
With the new ministry and many MLAs occupying the vital posts it is to be seen how
far they would meet the aspirations of our people as promised during the Assembly
elections. Some top brass senior leaders losing battle in the elections has exposed
the maturity and realization in the minds of our voters that they want works & developments
and cannot be further lured by paying money and keeping them in dark about financial
sanctions & grants by the government for development in the area.
Only one independent candidate winning in the assembly election is also a clear message.
There have been instances of Independent Candidates switching to the party in power
for their petty interest without the knowledge and consents of their voters.
Instead of switching to the ruling party, the political parties can play a vital
role by raising the issues jointly & united on all parts thereby checking misuse
of public money and bring such affairs before the public.
No Sundays please!
I would like to draw the attention of Market Welfare Committee of Capital Complex
regarding opening of Markets on Sunday.
I on behalf of all the government servants who are working in capital complex would
like to request all the Market Welfare Committees to close the market on any other
days instead of Sunday as all the government servants are busy in official works
right from Monday to Saturday. There is no chance to enjoy marketing along with family
members in those working hours.
Therefore, I earnestly request the bazaar committees to open market on Sunday and
close the market on Monday or any other day as per convenience of all.

Confusion over negative marking
We on behalf of APCS aspirants, would like to draw the kind attention of APPSC Itanagar
toward the doubt on the minds of aspirants, regarding the negative marking in
prelim Exam Jan, 2010.
Many a times the APPSC had to take different advice and suggestion from the legal
expert forgetting its discretionary power that is provided. In the recently conducted
APPSC examination, there were chaos and confusion in the cut off mark in English,
whereby the commission compelled themselves to agree with the few aspirants resulting
in the further delay of examination process.
This time there is again a confusion in the minds of most of the aspirants, that
the much talked about the negative marking in the prelim examination is really going
to be implemented or not. It was published on the commission‘s advertisement on various
local dailies of the state whereby commission mentioned that by this time negative
marking in prelims examination will be implemented however, it is very much worrying
that such changes or modification in the examination system is nowhere mentioned
in the prospectus. Such confusion will further create hue and cry after the declaration
of results of prelim examination.
Therefore, we would like to request APPSC, to make it very clear on its stand on
negative marking system. On the other hand, is there any change in the system?
Hope commission will respond to our request and it may be published through official
communique at earliest possible time.

Why is govt meting out preferential treatment?
I take this opportunity to reveal the saga of Arunachal’s hydro power projects and
preferential treatment of the private players by the State Govt.
The state is estimated to possess hydroelectric potential of over 50,000 MW and public
sector undertaking and private players are eying it to get a share of the profit.
Arunachal Pradesh has been identified by NHPC and NEEPCO as a key state to develop
several medium and large-sized hydroelectric projects. These organisations have
been asked to prepare detailed project report (DPR) of various projects, but it has
not had much success when it came to getting the projects. Even after preparing DPR
of various projects, the state government has later preferred the private players
to carry out execution of projects.
The saga began with award of Siyom project to Relience power Ltd., Siang lower to
JP Power Ltd., Damwe in Lohit to Athena groups, Kameng basin to GMR power Ltd., Namjangchu
in Tawang to Bilwara Etalin 4,500 MW to Jindal power Ltd, and recently Subansiri
middle project on Kamla river has been allotted to joint venture of Hydro Development
Corporation of Arunachal Pradesh and Jindal power Ltd.
There are many more which is beyond the knowledge of common people, even though none
of power project was develop by these private sector players in India except JP power
Ltd that developed Baglihar project in J&K which took 17 year to complete though
the target was 6 years.
What is the reason behind state Govt favouring private sector players? state Govt.
have to reply if it is asked. As one of its kind in state, 405 MW Ranganadi Hydroelectric
project was built and run by NEEPCO. As we all are aware that CPSU’s is guided and
entrusted by Ministry of power, Govt. of India with lots of corporate social responsibilities
towards the host states with time bond agreement. Even the secretary power, Govt.
of India has said that it would be better if project agreed upon between state and
CPSU itself and not hand it over to a private sector player as per the Economic Times
of Nov.29 issue.
The state Govt. should come up with a pragmatic policy on awarding hydropower projects.
This will not only ensure transparency but also for faster implementation of state’s
hydro potential for better Arunachal.

Choice is yours
This is in response to the collective decision taken by the Panchayat leaders of
Kurung Kumey regarding SSA teachers in which they had decided that teachers will
be transferred inter circle/ inter constituency and salary of teachers may be withheld
We are appreciative and impressed by the way the present panchayat leaders for thinking
seriously about the problem of the education sector unlike earlier leaders. As education
is only the vital and most important sector which needs especial attention. Involvement
of Panchayat leaders in policy making deserves appreciation from our SSA teachers
in particular and whole right thinking people in general but it is our sincere request
and appeal to our responsible grass root panchayat leaders not to hurt the struggling
teachers sincerely devoting their time and energy in nation building in remote part
of Arunachal Pradesh in spite of meager salary without TA/DA, Medical Re-imbursement,
teachers quarters, ration supply, timely disbursement of salary and other benefits
being enjoyed by regular service holders under government of Arunachal Pradesh.
Instead of harsh policy against SSA teachers, support and cooperate our demand for
regularization of services in place of raising issues like inter constituency/ inter-circle
transfer policy to SSA teachers which actually goes against the agreement being signed
by respective teachers with government of Arunachal Pradesh.
Our sincere appeal go to government of Arunachal Pradesh specially Minister Education
not to comply with the Panchayat leaders of Kurung Kumey District.
In case if it is to be accepted by the government than we will demand for benefits
enjoyed by other regular services holders in accordance to service norms since as
per agreement copy of appointment letter there is clear cut guidelines and directives
that SSA teachers is no-transferable as there are no other benefits beyond fixed
salary. Teachers will have to serve in same school until regularization is made from
the Govt. other than mutual transfer cases.

Space for select few!
I have observed that your paper gives space to only prominent people and what they
say. The actual happenings and genuine concerns of the people of the state are hardly
given a place.
This I say from experience. I had earlier on written on shortage of teachers at our
village but you chose not to publish it.
Now again, I want to draw the attention of the authorities regarding shortages of
teachers in Debing Village under Ruksin circle. If we expect quality education in
the state, it is necessary that sufficient teachers are posted in the schools.

A welcome move
Initiative taken by the Parliamentary Secretary Law, Legislature & Judicial Mr. J.K
Panggeng, to bifurcate the judiciary from executive is a welcome move. It should
have been done much earlier. Better late than never, it is hoped this would bring
about good change in judiciary system. Judiciary system in our state is still in
infancy stage and this initiative of separation of judiciary from executive would
bring maturity to both the wings.
