ITANAGAR, Feb 27: Alleging absolute lawlessness and corruption, People’s Party of
Arunachal (PPA) has demanded the Arunachal Pradesh Governor to dismiss the state
government and recommend for President’s Rule.
In its memorandum to the Governor, PPA working President Kahfa Bengia stated that
holding of simultaneous poll of Parliament and Assembly elections, which according
to him, is inevitable, will save the people of the state and its exchequer from ‘open
loot and curb the double expenditure involved in the two elections.’
“Absolute lawlessness and sense of insecurity is prevailing all around the state
owing to the failure of the state government to contain the rising law and order
situation,” Bengia said. He also said that the skyrocketing and unchecked prices
of all essential commodities have hit the common people hard. “The hollow promises
of the government, the besieging of the border area land and forest resources by
Assam and absolute anarchy arising out of the inapt handling of hydro power and autonomous
district council issues have left the people of this sensitive border state at the
mercy of god and the highest constitutional authorities of the country”, Bengia said.

Announcement of ex-gratia flayed

Government’s granting ex-gratia of Rs 3 lakh each to the families of those who died
in the Taraso incident and Rs 50,000 each to the injured, alleging that the act amounted
to proclaiming that Arunachalees were involved in the incident.
In a three-point representation addressed to CM, while demanding white paper on
ex-gratia announcement, the ACS also said the state Govt’s claim of having written
to the union home minister on the issue was an eyewash. “Being the state’s home minister,
Tuki should call on the Assam CM to bring about an amicable solution,’ it said. It

areas of concerned like health, education, road communications, infrastructural developments,
While suggesting planning and sanctioning fund specific to the districts or taking
up specific project for the district and getting it implemented as other possible
alternatives to solve the problems of these region he assured to extend full support
to get these alternatives done at central level if required. Stating that the Autonomous
District may be solution to the prevailing problems in the region he ensured that
the true feelings of the people expressed will be placed before the Govt of India.
However, he also cautioned that in some areas the councils are proved to be an utter
failure both in terms of developmental works as well as taking people into confidence.
While ensuring that attempts will be made to sort out solutions, Singh urged them
all to be honest and clear in the heart and mind in sorting out the problems of the
Responding to the point raised on poor infrastructures and pending schemes pertaining
to the districts at Centre Singh assured to look into the matter and clear these
works as soon as possible. Reacting to point regarding relaxation of height which

Earlier, Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly Speaker Wanglin Lowangdong while
summing up the views of ministers, MLAs and other public leaders of the three districts
on Autonomous District Council said that the demand was a long pending and the reasons
behind the demand were sense of deprivation, neglect, sense of isolation amongst
the people living in remotest and easternmost corner of Arunachal Pradesh, poor road
communication within the districts, etc. The development factor, the economic forum,
the sustainability of the livelihood and other various issues are comparatively much
lower than it actually should have been and the disparity in development in the districts
of the state is huge, added the Speaker. Speaking on the low literacy rate in the
districts he informed that although districts hail 23 per cent of the total population
of the state but they have only 0.24 per cent population in Govt service sector.
He said that every necessary demand was always rightly placed before the state as
well as central Govt but the fund received was not sufficient to address these issues.
“We need autonomy not for the autonomy’s sake and not only an Autonomous District
Council but we demand autonomy under the 6th Schedule of Indian constitution,” stressed
the Speaker. He said that preservation and promotion of the culture, identity and
religion of the region was also a reason behind demanding the Autonomous council
which are in verge of extinction. He reiterated to consider the feasibility of granting
Autonomy as well as special guarantee on vast available natural resources in the
district the basis of appropriate articles of the constitution.
Agriculture, Horticulture, Animal Husbandry and Veterinary & Dairy Development Minister
Setong Sena informed the visiting dignitaries that the districts of Changlang, Tirap
and Longding has been lagging behind in many aspects especially in the field of education,
health, employment, road communication, etc for many years which compelled people
of the trio-district to demand Autonomous District Council. Geographically & ethnically
also the districts vary from other districts of the state, he added. Stating that
the Autonomous District Council may be right instrument for solving the problems
in the districts he hoped that the grievances of the people and the genuine demand
for Patkai Autonomous District Council will be projected with positive remarks and
the long pending demand will be fulfilled. He lauded the initiatives of central govt
for sending the high level team to pay attention to drawbacks of the people of the
trio-District and discuss the issue of Autonomous district council.

NEW DELHI, Feb 27: CBI will soon take over the probe into the killing of 19-year-old
youth Nido Tania allegedly by a group of traders in Lajpat Nagar area here last month.
CBI sources said the agency was initially reluctant to take over the probe as the
case was almost solved by Delhi Police but after going through available material
it was decided that there was scope of investigation.
"We have decided to take over the probe in the killing of Nido Tania and a case would
be registered soon after completing the formalities," a senior CBI official said.
The sources said the decision to take over probe has been communicated to Department
of Personnel and Training which would issue the notification. Son of a Congress MLA
from Arunachal Pradesh Tania, a BA first year student in a private university, had
an altercation with some shopkeepers at Lajpat Nagar in New Delhi on January 29 after
they made fun of his hairstyle, following which they allegedly thrashed him.
He was found dead the next day at his residence. Delhi Police has already slapped
murder charges against four persons in connection with the case. PTI

Muk Pertin and ransacking of his chamber/house at Papu Nallah by miscreants at around

all court business in the state on February 28 as a mark of protest.

compound of senior most advocate Muk Pertin and ransacked his chamber/house at Papu
Nallah, the Association said adding that armed with guns, daos and sticks, the
group attacked Pertin, presently CBI and Central Government standing counsel, in
his chamber. However, the advocate narrowly escaped being attacked by the mob, it

into the case. The association threatened to launch indefinite boycott of court business

Expressing grave concerns on the frequent manhandling of legal professions in the
state especially in capital complex, the ALSU said manhandling of legal professions
in the disputes between two or more persons in relation to various issues is highly
condemnable. The role of lawyer is to be one’s legal advocate, that is, to provide
the client with competent legal representation and act in the best interest to assist
the client in the resolution of any legal problem. People, especially the miscreants
need to understand the professionalism of a person, said ALSU president Tadar Tarish
in a release.

Round applause for successful conduction of Arunachal festival
Through you esteemed daily I would like to lay down few points regarding just concluded
Arunachal Festival. As a layman and an optimistic spectator I had the privilege to
witness work culture of various Govt. Departments during 28th Statehood Day Celebration
2014 and gathered experience regarding their works. In this connection, I would like
to express my view and appreciation and thankfulness for making our State Festival
so colorful and attractive.
Firstly, I would like to extend my gratitude to the Department of Power, lead by
the Executive Engineer (E), Dept. of power, Itanagar, without which the colors of
celebration would not be seen and I appreciate the workers of dept. for delivering
such a good job. Hope they will keep this working spirit always not just in special
occasions but each and every day and make every household free from darkness.
Thumps up to PWD department, Itanagar, for their hard work and dedication. The design
and the construction of each and every stall were praiseworthy. The PHE department
deserves appreciation for uninterrupted water supply. I am very grateful to the Department
of Art & Culture and thank each and every member of the Department for such a wonderful
and colorful program that they presented during the festival and enthralled entire
Itanagar with showcasing of culture, tradition of the state and other parts of NE
Amidst all the celebration, the police department has done tremendous job during
this 28th Statehood Day Celebration. I specially extend my gratitude to them for
proving a well planned security and maturely handling the task. Because of your hard
work and dedication the celebration ended with good note and we felt secured during
the festival, thanks to you all.
At the end, I shall be failing in my duty, if I do not record my gratitude to the
District Administration, Headed by the Deputy Commissioner, Itanagar Capital Complex,
for his supervision and directions without which the celebration would not have been
such a success and also to the Organizing Chairman & his team of Arunachal Festival
2014 for shouldering such a huge responsibility and for completing the task with
success and up to the mark.
In conclusion, Government of Arunachal Pradesh deserves some patting on back for
success of Arunachal festival 2014. Hope to see such enthusiasm and dedication every
Likabali sub-division witnessing major encroachment activities
Through your esteemed daily, I would like to inform all the responsible people and
state Govt in particular that after the boundary commission's statement, Assam govt
is trying to encroach more Arunachalee land. They very well know that Arunachal Govt
won’t do anything in advance to protect their land. Only after Assam police encroaches
the land, they would rush to the spot and place police personnel inside the villages.
The Assam Govt is grabbing Arunachal land as if there is no tomorrow. If they have
to return back 70-80 % land to Arunachal then it would be this newly / recently occupied
lands and not the earlier encroached land. Beware! In the last Assembly election
in 2009 when Arunachal Govt. was busy in election process, Assam occupied Mopin Ground
This time during parliamentary and assembly elections they may try to occupy the
whole foothill area of Likabali sub-division as the Govt. machinery will be busy
in election duty. Prevention is better than cure and therefore, I would like to request
all the civil societies, intellectuals and Govt. in particular that all the foothill
areas should be well protected with adequate force with B.O.P. in all the areas.
Only waiting for a miracle won’t serve the purpose. It is a sad thing that the earlier
DC of Aalo, M.K. Sahoo who was a good officer and always quick in action regarding
the boundary dispute was transferred out from West Siang. Hope the new DC being a
local Arunachalee would take up the matter at the most urgent and protect the people
and the land of Arunachal.
Parents should be aware of their children’s activities
I feel astonished seeing some of my friends enjoying their whole academic session
roaming freely, with no academic tensions while we are overloaded with studies and
other activities. I feel so sorry for their parents who think that their children
is studying hard and hoping that bright future is awaiting them. But where else,
truth is that his/her son is actually befooling him/her. I ask those parents did
he/she ever visited their sons/daughters college...!! If not then I request you kindly
have yours children’s academic information especially those studying in private colleges.
I have seen children lying to their parents for loved ones or to go to friend’s party
but now it have crossed the limit of lying. They even lie about their studies that,
“Dad I have passed exam and now I am in third year," but the real fact is that he/she
never appears for the exam.
I would like to request those students that please if you don’t want to study, then
don’t go for it, unnecessarily wasting your time and your parent’s hard earned money.
And to those parents “PLEASE BE AWARE YOU ARE BEING CHEATED"
The crime rate has been rising at an alarming speed in the state. About three weeks
ago, the capital complex saw death of a young boy Habung Loder. The police have of
course been carrying out the investigation but the results have not been satisfactory
as all the families, relatives and friends are looking forward for the result. The
death of our own child of the state who has died under mysterious circumstances has
not been getting the desired result. It's been almost a month since the death of
late Loder and yet the authorities have not provided the family with information
about the course of the death. I would like to express an opinion of my own. If I
may be, so humble, as to ask the authorities that what would they have done if young
boy who died was one of their own, would they have been satisfied by just assuming
that it was a suicide or would they have done everything they could to find out truth???
All email and surface mails must be accompanied with contact numbers and full postal
address. Do keep writing but please make sure that letters are short and to the point.

National interest should not be above politics
With general election nearing political parties are using every tactics to woo the
voters. However some of the methods adopted by them are against the interest of nation.
Recent decision of Tamil Nadu govt. to release four convicts involved in assassination
of former prime Gandhi is one such wrong steps taken by AIADMK leader and Tamil Nadu
CM J Jayalalithaa. Everyone is aware that these four convicts were member of terrorist
group LTTE and participated in assassination act knowing consequences.
In this context, the decision of Jayalalithaa govt. to release them just before general
election to woo hardcore Tamil voters has set wrong trend. The supreme court of India
today finally intervened and stayed the release of four, ordering status quo on a
plea by the Centre challenging the Tamil Nadu government's proposal to release them.
Political parties should not compromise with national interests while pursuing their
political dream. Citizen of this country are fed up with corruption and mis-governance.
The political parties should concentrate in addressing these issues instead of including
in high voltage drama.
