APPSU sponsored Bandh passes off peacefully, reiterates Gamlin’s ouster
ITANAGAR, July 27: The Dawn to dusk Capital bandh call given by the All Arunachal
Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) passed off peacefully without any untoward incident.
The union had called the bandh demanding resignation of Home Minister Jarbom Gamlin
“for his failure in making public the report on killing of late Wangcha Rajkumar
and maintaining overall law and order of the state”.
City SP Hibu Tamang said that the day passed off peacefully.
The message is loud and clear and the “People First” government should read the writing
on the walls and should immediately drop the home minister. The Union said that
if the government did not give into its demand, Union will continue with its democratic
Today’s bandh as well as others that are in the offing as announced by the apex students’
body for the ouster of the Minister from the state cabinet is nothing but the result
of dormant sentiments of common masses and youths of the state that had been suppressed
all these years with the hope that things will change for better.
In spite of so many reminders and representation from time to time by various NGOs
and from AAPSU as well, no substantial progress or approach has been made to improve
the law and order situation thus showing total apathy towards his constitutional
obligation as home minister of the state, the union President Takam Tatung said in
an emailed message.
The law and order degradation is at its zenith and this is because of the casual
approach of the home minister, he added.
The Home Minister being a former president of AAPSU should never underestimate the
sentiments of the students’ community and tender his resignation on moral ground
paving way for new leaders who can handle the home portfolio with more sincerity,
the message added.
The Union further thanked the citizens for cooperating with the Union.

Education provide the sense to the senses
When I was at college one of my friends told us that his cousin sister was working
in U.S.A as teacher & she has done PhD. When questioned teacher?He said yes a primary
school teacher. One of the friend said she could have been a lecturer in India,see
the descrimination. No, said my friends she is highly paid & specialization is a
prerequisite. Now dealing with my own children’s education, I'm always reminded about
that particular discussion.
My son who is in L.K.G would always try to write alphabet exactly the way his teacher
has written in his copy. I have shown him alphabet from alphabet chart, from text
book but when he write down he would always look for the writing of his teacher.
Now I understand why a teacher of primary school be a specialised & highly educated
one. He/she should be able to understand the children’s psychology, he/she should
know the way & method of teaching & giving education to a person who has just put
his/her first step into education or for that matter the challenges of life ahead.
We may have 5 senses physically but education provide the sense to the senses. Any
literate person can teach other but giving Education, can only be done by a teacher.

Working together will speed up development
Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I would like to extend my sincere thanks
to Home Minister Jarbom Gamlin for his tireless work for development of the 27 Liromoba
Assembly constituency in particular and Arunachal Pradesh in general.
Some of the major achievements of Gamlin are -- black-topping from Liromoba to
Tai road, up-gradation of CO post to EAC headquarters, commissioning of Ligo Micro
Hydel and construction of gallery at football ground and under-construction BSNL
mobile tower etc.
Gamlin’s true leadership also attracts senior leaders of the area.
I hope, the development activities of the area will gain momentum if the experienced
and senior leaders work together in greater interest.
