No controversy over Lower Siang HQs: DDJAC
LIKABALI, Dec 14: Undue delay in setting up of Lower Siang district HQ (temporary)
at Likabali is causing grave concern among the people of Likabali and Nari-Koyu constituencies,
who have threatened to launch more rigorous movement to register their strong protest
against Govt. inaction.
The members of District Demand Joint Action Committee (DDJAC) with support of various
local organizations called 96-hrs Lower Siang district bandh in support of their
demand for early establishment of the district headquarters of Lower Siang at Likabali.
The bandh ended ‘peacefully’ yesterday evening.
Expressing strong resentment over the state government’s non- responsive attitude
towards their grievances, the members of DDJAC and its allied organizations said
that numerous representations were already submitted to the government during the
past half decade but their demand remained unfulfilled.
Justifying the bandh called by DDJAC and its allied organizations as genuine, the
people have appealed to the state government to declare Sikirima as the permanent
headquarters of the new district and Likabali as temporary at the earliest failing
which it will launch rigorous indefinite democratic movement from January 5, 2015.
Representatives of DDJAC and various organizations, PRI leaders, public leaders,
prominent citizens and Gaon Burahs of eight circles under Likabali and Nari-Koyu
constituencies assembled in a meeting at Likablai Bazar last evening and discussed
their future course of action regarding district headquarter issue.
It was clarified in the public meeting that there was no controversy regarding proposal
on district headquarter. All sections, irrespective of party and organizations have
endorsed the DDJAC move for notification of permanent district headquarters at Sikirima
and Likabali as temporary.
The meeting also unanimously resoled to accept the demands of the DDJAC and GPF as
the voice of people of Lower Siang district and long pending demands of the people
living at foothills. In another decision adopted in the meeting, the DDJAC has constituted
a 'Two-Member Committee' to solve the discrepancy that appeared in the proceeding
of the meeting held on 25 November this year.
“The organizers of that meeting misled the participants to adopt a wrong resolution
excluding the name of Sikirima as permanent HQ of the new district.”
According to information available, Chief Minister Nabam Tuki is willing meet a 10
to 15 selected leaders of Lower Siang district to discuss the headquarter issue and
he reportedly instructed Likabali MLA Jomde Kena to ensure their arrival here tomorrow
for discussion. But, the people of the district questioned as to why the Chief Minister
did not inform other two MLAs representing Basar and Nari-Koyu constituencies.

Tribal languages of Arunachal dying slow death
[ Taba Ajum ]
ITANAGAR, Dec 14: The tribal languages of Arunachal are facing serious threat of
extinction. Altogether 82 tribal languages are spoken in the state and many of them
are on the verge of being extinct. However, worryingly the tribal community does
not seem to have woken up to the harsh reality and no proper steps have been initiated
by either any tribe or government of Arunachal to save the dying tribal languages.
The languages of small communities like Meyor and Bugun face the biggest threat.
Dwindling population along with the onslaught of Hindi and Assamese languages are
gradually giving slow death to the enigmatic tribal languages. According to the year
2009 UNESCO Atlast of the World’s Languages in Danger data, 26 languages of Arunachal
have been identified as endangered. What is worrying is that even languages of largely
populated tribal groups like Adi, Galo, Nyishi too have been categorized as unsafe
by UNESCO due to the heavy influence of Hindi language.
Today majority of young Arunachalee tribal prefer to converse in Hindi, even at their
own home and many of them do not know how to speak in their own mother tongue. If
the present trend continues, linguistic expert believes that most of the tribal languages
will get extinct in the next 50 years. The whole problem started with the Hinduinization
of state which began after 1962 Indo-China war. Having tasted bad defeat at the hands
of Chinese in 62 war and facing rebellion in other NE states like Nagaland, Manipur
the central government under leadership of then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru started
the process of Indianizing the state of Arunachal. Large number of Hindi speakers
along with Hindi teachers was pushed into the state and with that the process of
slow death of tribal culture began. Later years in another major step which contributed
to the worsening of situation, the government of Arunachal in the 80s introduced
Hindi as main language right from the primary school level.
While other North Eastern ethnic groups like Mizo, Naga, Manipuri (both tribals and
Meitie), Khasi, Boro, Mishing etc have managed to safeguard their language and culture,
sadly the tribal groups of Arunachal have miserably failed on that account. “Historically
Mizo, Naga, Manipuris and to a certain extent Boro’s have all fought strongly for
their cultural and linguistic identity. Therefore government of India treads carefully
and do not dare to meddle with these ethnic groups. But they seem to have taken people
of Arunachal for granted and therefore is not serious about saving unique tribal
languages,” said Prof Prof Scott C Delancey, head, department of Linguistic, Oregon
University, USA who recently visited Rajiv Gandhi University, Doimukh. Prof. Scott
further added that sense of patriotism towards own culture and language is missing
in Arunachal. “It is great to learn Hindi and English as these are most popular languages
spoken in India. But one needs to preserve their mother tongue and should be proud
of their culture. Too much of outside influence is diminishing the great tribal culture
and tradition of Arunachal,” continued Prof. Scott.
Lisa Lomdak of Rajiv Gandhi University, who has carried out series of researches,
in her finding claims that tribal languages of Arunachal show serious signs of being
endangered mainly due to negligence and faulty provisions of the governance which
have not facilitated the mother tongues of tribal’s to be functional and not useful
outside the home domain.
While Hindi is the common lingua franca, however, sadly the Arunachalee version of
Hindi are also below standard and therefore it does not help them in anyway.
“Once myself and another Arunachalee friend was discussing in Hindi while buying
some stuff at Sarojini Market, New Delhi. All of a sudden the shopkeeper who was
a native mainland Indian asked us, “Bhaiyya aap logon ka basha Hindi jaisa lagta
hain, which language you are conversing?” We both laughed at each other. This is
the problem. We are neither good in Hindi nor in our own tribal languages and seriously
we don’t know whom to blame,” shares a young Arunachalee.
With the experts presenting gloomy picture for survival of tribal languages in the
long run, it is time the community based organizations including their student wings
take steps before it’s too late. The community based organizations can play big role
in this regard. They need to shed their egos and come together to work unitedly to
save the dying tribal languages. Time is running out for the tribal communities.
ATA calls for modification of RR
ITANAGAR, Dec 14: The Arunachal Teachers’ Association (ATA) has called for modification
of departmental Recruitment Rules (RR) by relaxing minimum service experience required
for promotion to next stage so that every deserving individual could enjoy benefit
of promotional avenues.
“Promotion of teachers starting from Assistant Teacher (AT) up to Directorate level
must be made on the basis of seniority,” ATA in its meeting held yesterday said and
called upon both the Directors to obtain photo copy of service books of the teachers
from respective DDSEs of all districts through which exact seniority list can be
arranged at Directorate level to maintain accuracy in seniority list.
ATA opined that the in-serving ATs of 1990 to 2008 batches who have been deprived
of promotional avenues and those having requisite qualification should be promoted
at one go.
To improve the quality of education in state, the ATA members called upon the state
government to implement the provisions of RTE in totality, designing syllabus and
textbooks on regional framework with inclusion of state related subjects in elementary
level, inclusion of new subjects such as Sociology and Education in the secondary
curriculum, establishment of separate institution for in-service teachers who desire
to pursue further studies such as B.Ed., M.Ed. or mandatory reservation of seats
at every government or private teachers training institutes.
ATA demanded for creation of separate Deputy Director of Elementary and Secondary
(DDEE/DDSE) at district level instead of Deputy Director of School Education.
While opposing single window rationalization process of teachers transfer and posting
adopted by the education department, the ATA insisted that the transfer and posting
should be done at Deputy Director level of respective districts with due consultation
with field functionaries and head of the school. It also objected to mid-session
transfers and postings and suggested that it should be carried out during vacation
Further, the Pupils Teacher Ratio (PTR) should not be prioritized for transfer and
posting of teachers rather Classrooms - Teacher Ratio of the school should be considered,
the meeting opined.
In corroborating the genuine demands of SSA and RMSA teachers, the ATA appealed for
timely release of salaries of SSA and RMSA teachers and 10 percent state share especially
for salary component should be placed at Annual Operating Plan to minimize the overdue
ATA also demanded the state government to develop ideal mechanism for regularization
of SSA teachers serving in the state. In addition, it advocated for enhancement of
salary of RMSA teacher at par with the SSA teachers and inclusion of vacation period
salary for them too.
To redress issues of retired teachers, a separate pension branch should be created
within the department so that the pension work of the pensioner could be sorted out
at stipulated time, said ATA.
On engagement of teachers in other duties such as Election, Census etc it was decided
to call upon govt. to adhere to the Supreme Court order wherein teachers were exempted
from engagement in other non-academic duties during the academic period.
Lack of teacher quarters is one of the serious concern faced by the teachers, ATA
observed and suggested that the Govt. should provide teacher quarters at every school
of the state.
For effective implementation of midday meal (MDM), ATA called for timely release
of cooking cost to schools, proper monitoring on food grains supplies and providing
separate dining hall at every school.
Re-implementation of teaching allowances such as non-tuition allowances, winter allowances
etc and release of sufficient fund for medical re-imbursement at DDSE level which
would facilitate financial burden of ailing teacher.
Earlier, ATA (CEC) president Tarh Yaku appealed to the teaching community to be practical
in rendering their services and called upon them to revive and improve the ‘Guru-Sishya’
relation. Further, she appealed to the members to work hard and give more focus towards
improvement of quality of education in the state.
Delegates from various ATA district units, AASSATA and ARMSATA CEC members also participated
in the meeting.

Drug addiction continues to be one of the serious problems affecting the development
of Arunachal Pradesh. Many youths have gone astray in life due to the drug addiction
problem. The government as well Arunachal’s civil society has failed to fight against
this menace. In many districts opium is grown illegally but authority concern have
not been able to stop, despite knowing about it. The society also tends to overlook,
thereby, emboldening the illegal opium grower.
However fight against drug menace today went another notch high as Narendra Modi
said society as well as the government will have to work together to fight this problem
and that a helpline would be set up soon to assist those seeking solutions. Voicing
concern over the "devastating" drug addiction menace, Modi, in his third 'Mann Ki
Baat' programme on radio, termed the menace as "national pain." Prime Minister said
a thinking process should begin to ensure that the country is rid of this problem
and added that he will try to involve celebrities from the cine world, sports and
other fields to campaign for a "drug-free India". It is heartening to see PM getting
serious about drug addiction menace. With him leading the charge, the fight against
drug abuse will receive major boost. Hopefully Arunachal will reap benefit of this
new mission initiated by PM Modi.

Ground realities speak different tone
I don't know how the educated people react, when they read about statement like AP
can met the power demands of the country or like the CM's Google global education
initiative. Being a student hailing from a remote village in Kurung Kumey district,
I know the ground realities of our state. Road have been recently constructed and
they are in their worst form. Electricity is like our elected leaders who hardly
visit and develop our village after election. School buildings, furniture, hostels
and teachers are also in deplorable conditions.
I also know that our CM is well aware of the ground realities of our state. I think
the Google also knows or will soon know our true condition. For digital or computer
education, electricity is must. Even capital Itanagar does not have 24/7 electricity
supply, then how can the dream of digital education come true? When we have no proper
class room buildings to keep computers, how can we think of computer education? When
our state with only 1.4 million of population can't be supplied with regular electricity,
how can GoAP supply electricity to the rest of the country?
I hope our CM will emulate PM Modi in this regard. Mr. Modi's claim is not empty
like other leaders. I think these tall statements are empty and just a talk or an
act on our leader's part and on Google's part to show that our leader is taking education
to new heights and to show that corporate are not just a profit making organization
but pro-society. If our CM is really concerned about education sector, then provide
us with basic needs like regular electricity in every village and town, provide drinking
water to every home, provide concrete classrooms and labs, provide good teachers,
and provide more professional courses in our existing colleges.
I also urge Google that if they are thinking of helping the people of Arunachal,
then they should help us to have these basic needs first, otherwise its global education
program will be a total failure and a wasteful exercise in which vested parties will
achieve their vested interests.
Through your esteemed daily I would like to draw the attention of concern authorities
on the subject of the proposed transfer of MGNREGA scheme from Rural Development
Department to Panchayat Raj Department. On 25th November, 2014 Secretary Panchayat
government of Arunachal Pradesh circulated a circular vide letter No.PR-RGPSA/12/2014
and proposed to held a meeting among Secretary RD, Secretary PR, Director RD and
Director PR in the conference hall of Chief Secretary on 3rd December 2014 last for
transfer of MGNREGA scheme from BDO to Panchayat Technical Assistant (JEs) appointed
under Rajiv Gandhi Panchayat Sashaktikaran Abhiyan (RGPSA) but such meeting could
not be conducted and reportedly it has been postponed to 19th December 2014.
In the same letter it also stated that such pursuance and effects were made and proposed
in the line of the MoPR Government of India videD.O letter No. N-18011/2/2014- DPE.
While going through that letter we could not find any line of instruction for transfer
of such scheme. The Block Development Officers of the state are engaged in this scheme
as Programme Officer since 2008 after MGNREGA scheme was launched in the country.
Now we are busy at Gram Panchayat level conducting Intensive Participate Planning
Exercise (IPPE) after 61 CD Blocks of the state were declared as Backward Block out
of 109 CD Blocks. Panchayat Department is one of the departments of the state whose
functionary are yet to be properly recruited by the government and if such decision
is made and scheme transferred, they will not be in a position to implement the scheme,
the way RD department has been doing. RD department has got 1033 employees and DRDAs
in Arunachal has got 582 employees. All of them are helping in implementation of
this scheme since its inception and it will be against the interest of 1615 employees
of RD Deptt. DO letter mentioned above from Joint Secretary MoPR Government of India
has not instructed any lines for transfer of the scheme to any Deptt. But they instructed
few lines to the implementing authorities like Gram Panchayats etc to associate the
technical manpower sanctioned under RGPSA with the work of MGNREGA ensuring that
they work under the overall supervision and control of Panchayats. Panchayat Technical
Assistant (JEs) appointed under RGPSA are used as technical manpower in some of non
sanction CD Blocks in the state which are earmarked as APCS Block.
Instead of doing all these activities, the state government should go for proper
planning and declare all 109 CD Blocks of the state as Electronic Fund Management
System (EFMS) Block in the line of other states of the country under the same programme
and access the performance or non performance CD Block in the state including DRDAs
On behalf of all employees of RD department in general and Block Development Officers
in particular I would like to appeal authority concern not to transfer the said scheme
to Panchayat Department or any other deptt as this is the lone poverty alleviation
programme of Rural Development Department in the state.

Discrimination against Arunachalee patient
A family seeking benefits under CHIEF MINISTER'S UNIVERSAL HEALTH INSURANCE SCHEME
at B.J Hospital, Tezpur was racially abused and thrown out of hospital by the owner
of the hospital.
One Mrs. Karma a 91 years old lady healing from West Kameng district was referred
to M/s B.J. Hospital, NH-52, Dekargaon, Misión Chariali, Tezpur to undergo operation
under Chief ministers universal health insurance scheme but was duly refused to even
see the documents and provide benefit under the scheme by the B. J. Hospital owner
Dr. Jiten Borkakati. However, with no option in hand due to severe pain the patient
opts to undergo a paid procedure in the hospital. Where the owner of the hospital
allows only two attendees to sit near operation theatre and rest waits at waiting
Meanwhile, when the operation was over the attendants of the patient were summoned
by the operating doctor to brief instruction on how to take care of the patient but
the son of the patient was racially abused and was rather thrown out of the hospital
premises by the owner of the B.J. Hospital Dr. Jiten Borkakati for no reason.
Geographically Tezpur is easily accessible by the three district of state namely
West Kameng, Tawang and East Kameng. However, with state government tying up with
such eccentric and racial owners, it becomes impossible for the native citizens to
avail benefit under the premier health schemes of the state.
