Action against culprits demanded
ITANAGAR, Feb 4: Citing the example of last year’s ugly incident at Daporijo, the
All Collegians Co-ordination Committee of Upper Subansiri district said that the
recent alleged act of firing by CRPF personnel on innocent public leaving one of
them grievously injured, was just reminiscence of the previous horrendous experience.
Incidentally, both the incidents occurred at a same place and within a year.
It seems, the armed forces personnel, who are considered to be the savior of law
are in a rat race to break the law, the union rued. While condemning the shameful
act by the so called para-military forces, the union urged the authorities concerned
to bring the culprit to book immediately and punish as per law.
Meanwhile, Upper Subansiri Galo Students’ Union appealed to the authorities concerned
to look after the injured person, who has been reportedly battling for his life at
a city hospital in Guwahati. It also demanded immediate action against those involved

Governor apprises PM on current status of projects
ITANAGAR, Feb 4: Arunachal Pradesh Governor Gen JJ Singh, who is on an official tour
to the National Capital called on the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh at New Delhi
During the meeting, the Governor briefed the Prime Minister on the progress of work

number. He also stressed on the need to augment the same for effective border management.

allocation of funds for the same. Vijaynagar, he pointed, is the eastern most salient
area of Changlang district, jutting in Myanmar as of now remains air maintained for
its subsistence. This road link when it comes up will also make the journey of Namdapha
Reserve forest complete, giving impetus to eco tourism. Carrying forward State Government’s
effort in border trade, Gen Singh briefed Dr. Singh on the need for operationalising
the Land custom Station at Pangsau Pass to develop trade links with Myanmar.

Do Arunachal require para-military forces?
By Taba Ajum
ITANAGAR, Feb 4: Deployment of central forces in Arunachal Pradesh for civilian assignment
is slowly turning out to be an emotional issue after recent Daporijo incident where
local public clashed with CRPF jawans.
This incident comes in the wake of last year’s Christmas Day experience when CRPF
personnel were again allegedly involved in a brawl with locals at Roing town. Both
these happenings highlight the fact that deep down the line central forces have not
been able to win the hearts of natives of the state.
Circumstances under which both the incidents took place, finger points towards the
attitude of CRPF jawans. Being well trained force, they are expected to set high
standards in dealing with demanding situations but on both the occasions their act
has in fact deteriorated the whole picture. Also in a state like Arunachal, where
numbers of crime rate are less as compared to other regions, deployment of central
forces for law and order situation is like indirectly questioning capabilities of
state police forces. Many of the citizens, with whom this reporter caught up, believe
that presence of central forces in the street of Arunachal is not a healthy sign.
Most of them were of the view that these forces do not understand culture and traditions
of the local people.
“During one of the local festival I was driving down to Nirjuli in my traditional
dress and was carrying a ‘Dao’ as tradition. ITBP forces stopped me near Model village
at Naharlagun and started questioning me as to why I was carrying ‘Dao’? Despite
my explanation they harassed me a lot,” informed one of the residents of Naharlagun,
who wished to remain anonymous.
Another aspect which hurts local sentiment is the foul language used by jawans of
central forces. “Even if we are driving with our sister and mother, these uniformed
men use abusive language not even caring about them,” lamented a citizen.
All the concerned citizens opined that state police should take lead role in maintaining
law and order in the entire state. “Our government should avoid dependency on central
forces and instead use state police for maintaining order in the society. For this
our police force should be better trained,” told Tarak Eha, who is a legal adviser
cum spokesperson of All Papum Pare District Student Union (APPDSU).
If one visits some of the hospitals in capital complex, emergency ward staff will
tell about those people coming with injurious caused by beating at the hand of central
forces. “I myself had handled two cases of patients coming with grave injuries after
they were thrashed by jawans of central forces. Reasons being petty one like wrong
parking of bike or riding without helmet,” informed one of the doctors of a city
There is a growing anger among citizens of Arunachal about the repeated incidents
of central forces troubling local citizens. State government needs to take notice
of this sentiment and make sure that incidents like that of Daporijo and Roing should
not happen again. People of this state are peace loving and had always shared strong
rapport with central forces and army.
Being citizens of border area, Arunachalees truly understand value of these forces
and expect them to respect local sentiments too.
Sporadic bamboo flowering in Changlang district
CHANGLANG, Feb 4: Sporadic bamboo flowering and fruiting in Dendrocala-mus hamiltonii
, a wild species in Changlang, have begun in large patches in Changlang district.
The worst hit areas are in between 10th to 14 mile of Margherita-Changlang road under
social forestry division.
Chimoy Simai, DFO, Changlang informed that the flowering had started during the month
of January 2010 but mass blooming has occurred during last few days. He informed
that the bamboo species like Bambusa tulda, Bambusa balcoa, Dendrocalamus giganteus
etc are also found in Changlang, however, these species are not affected.
Bamboo flowers once in 30-40 years. During flowering of bamboo, it is said these
rodents feast on these bamboo seeds and multiply themselves in terms of ten thousands
in a year. Once the seeds are exhausted, they look for an alternate source of feed
in agricultural crops, thereby causing extensive damage to the agricultural produce,
informed Simai. However, the farmers have at least a little consolation in the fact
that the flowering is taking place in an agricultural off-season when the crops have
already harvested. DIPRO
