Forest fire in West Kameng

in severe smog. Even areas near the district headquarters Bomdila has been affected
with fire continuously burning in nearby mountains and forests.
Devastating fire could be seen at several areas near Dirang, Bomdila, Rupa, Chillipam,
Gacham, Jigaon, Shergaon and Dahung.
In several places electric and phone lines have been affected by the ravaging fire.
The most dangerous, however, are the stones rolling down from the naked hills and
mountain straight to the roads.
Forest Fire is a perennial hazard in the district, mostly caused by carelessness
of the inhabitants and made worse by dry forests in harsh winters. Wildlife Hunting,
which is one of the favourite sports in the district have often been blamed for outbreak
of fire as hunters are not cautious enough to douse the fire after they set it on.

ITANAGAR, Feb 6: All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) in its strongest term
urged the state govt. to awake from deep slumber and arrest the culprit involved
in attack on Associate Editor of The Arunachal Times Tongam Rina so that the people

Questioning that as to why the district administration and state govt. is keeping
mum on “grenade dropping and extortion note” incident in the residence of an executive
engineer at Gandhi Market area, Itanagar, AAPSU said delay in nabbing the culprit
involved in the heinous crime has created a state of fear psychosis in the minds
of common citizen dwelling in the twin Capital City.
Claiming that non-early arrest of the culprit(s) would encourage criminal activity
in future, AAPSU urged the authority concerned to arrest the culprit at the earliest
or else AAPSU would be compelled to launch democratic movement to fulfill demands.

Taking into account the magnitude of devastation, the speed at which it spreads to
nearby areas, its potential to change the direction and ability to jump roads and
rivers forest fires are completely different from other ordinary fire accident.
Last week a fire broke out at Gano area at Ziro in Lower Subansiri district in which
Bamboos grooves and other valuable trees were burnt down. Forest fires also known
as Bush fire generally occur during winter due to hot and dry climate. It completely
destroys the eco system posing great threat to human as well as wildlife and infrastructure.
The effects of forest fire are more destructive than the beneficial effects.
It may not be correct but in my opinion, forest fires are mainly caused by human
hands. Major cause of forest fires in Ziro and other parts of the state are human
carelessness like throwing burning cigarettes carelessly.
Few steps to prevent forest in or nearby forest land are,
--Attend the fire until it is completely dead or out.
-- Appoint a responsible person or GB to detect such unlawful activity in the village.
--Burn only natural vegetation or untreated wood products.
--Burn at least 50 ft from structures and 500 ft from any forest area.
--Don’t burn if it is too windy.

attended the meeting, informed an official release.
The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) called on countries to
boost efforts to promote agroforestry, a practice involving the combination of trees
with crop or livestock production, stressing it can help millions of people escape
poverty and prevent environmental degradation, making it crucial to ensure food security
in the future.
Agroforestry combines agricultural and forestry technologies to create more productive
and sustainable systems for land use. According to FAO, the agroforestry sector is
a significant source both of local commodities such as fuelwood, timber, fruit and
fodder for livestock as well as global ones such as coconut, coffee, tea, rubber
In a new guide aimed at decision-makers, non-governmental organizations and governmental
institutions, FAO shows how agroforestry can be integrated into national strategies
and how policies can be adjusted to specific conditions.
The guide provides 10 tracks for policy action, including raising awareness of agroforestry
systems among farmers and the global community; reforming unfavourable regulations
in forestry, agricultural and rural codes; and clarifying land-use policy regulations.
In addition, the guide argues policymakers should create incentives to implement
agroforestry. For example, farmers introducing trees on farms should be rewarded
in the form of grants, tax exemptions, cost-sharing programmes, microcredits or through
assistance to develop their infrastructure.
Long-term credit is also key as benefits to farmers planting trees reach them only
after some years. The value of carbon sequestered and other environmental services
provided by the trees could also be applied to paying the interest.
Ensure regular power supply
I, being the chairman of the Education and Cultural Development Society (ECDS), would
like to urge to state govt. particularly power minister to ensure regular and uninterrupted
power supply in Arunachal, particularly in twin capital city. It has been observed
since a couple of month back that the power supply has been totally disrupted in
capital city and others parts of state also.
At a time, when the state Govt is encouraging self-employment venture, many
electricity-based business establishments run by the unemployed youths of the state
such as cyber café, car wash centre, restaurants, bakery and many others remain
functionless due to erratic and poor power supply. The present power situation
also discourage us to run such type of business/institutions where constant power
supply is needed.
As we are in computer age of 21st century, even the working of Govt. offices, banking
sector has badly been affected by irregular power supply. It is not a good sign for
development of state and nation as a whole.
If the power scenario of the state remains pathetic for long time, then the day will
not far when the entire businessmen who mostly depend on electricity to run their
business will run away from state to re-start their business in others state and
for this the blame will go to state Govt only.
