The exorbitant B.Ed fees
I would like to share some of my views regarding B.Ed colleges mushrooming in our state. With no option left after graduation or post graduation the students opts for B.Ed by paying more than Rs.65,000 in private B.Ed colleges of our state. After paying hefty amounts for B.Ed is it guaranteed that the person will get regular AT,JT and ST in future? Are there any regulating authorities to check the exorbitant rise of fees for B.Ed in private colleges of our state? Is it affiliated with National Council For Teachers Education (NCTE).
If we go through other states where there is less scopes for teaching jobs in Govt. sector like Uttar Pradesh, Orissa, West Bengal etc. the fees for B.Ed is just Rs.3000 to 12000.With the regularisation of SSA Teachers there is a less chance of conducting interview for the post of AT's and JT's especially for the Arts subjects. So, the B.Ed holders has no scopes in Govt. sectors of our state other than private sectors where salary is just Rs.2000 to 3000.The private schools of our state should also follow the CBSE norms or guidelines for the teachers payment. Govt. should issue guidelines for the teachers and should strictly punish who does not adhere to it. Otherwise the B.Ed Degree has no value in our Govt. sector dominated state.
Lastly it is my sincere request to AAPSU and other students unions to raise the voice for the poor students and it is also my request to Jarbom Gamlin led Govt. to check the exorbitant fees of B.Ed colleges and to issue guidelines for the payment of private school teachers so that the poor students can aim for a teaching job.
Did they change the rules?
I would like to draw the kind attention of the Rajiv Gandhi University towards the withheld result where many candidates including me are victims. My result has been withheld for being absent in house test exam whereas I am a late collegian of B A IInd year (pass) from Govt College Bomdila. In my knowledge, there is no provision to appear house test exam under the university guidelines for late and private candidates. Even then the results are withheld for not appearing in house test exam. Has the university authority changed the rules making it compulsory for private and late candidates to appear in house test? If the rules are changed then why it was not intimated properly to all the colleges ?
When I asked the authorities concerned of Rajiv Gandhi university as to why my results were withheld, the reply comes: This is not our problem, ask your concern college principal. Again when I contacted the principal of Govt College Bomdila, he said that he has no any authority to deal with the students result and it is the responsibility of university.
I once again requested the university authority to declare my results as delay in declaration of result may lead to lose of an academic year.
The road condition of the Bage tinali to Doimukh is in very severe condition. The road was renovated last winter even then durability of road is very short. This is all due to poor specification and poor knowledge. If an engineer can't guide labours on road construction then how are they going to be an in charge of mega projects? Any way hats off to Doimukh PWD division for their superb effort.
Whatever the demand is, do not harass public
This is regards to the recent announcement of bandh call. We really wonder what to do what not to do to avoid this frequents ban calls. Annoyed public are sick of these so called organizations demanding on every little issue and try to mend it like they are doing the noble work. Whatever your demand is or will be, please do not harass the common public by calling bandhs. We will really appreciate if it is hunger strike or other means of asking for fulfillment of your demand. By doing so your voice may be ignored by the govt but it will definitely reach us. Your good deeds should be for the people not against the people. so out of my agony I like to request stop calling ban calls.

Concerns of citizens
Aalo, one of the oldest and well known district headquarters which produced so many bureaucrat, technocrats, litterateurs and politicians is in the news for wrong reason. The recent Aalo imbroglio shows immaturity of politicians, bureaucrats and public. The problem could have been handled better had it been dealt with proper way keeping aside their ego. Ego of politicians, DC and public brought the whole district into such an embarrassing position which we never encountered earlier. Although there are so called peace committees but its credibility is also in question as it is believed that they are party to the one party.
Everybody believe that at least DC should have been spared from physical assault but there is some circumstance when one loss its tolerance capacity and become unlawful and draw all kinds criticism from all section and corner of the society.
Ever since respected Amjad Tak joined as Deputy Commissioner Aalo, he has been in the news for wrong reasons only except his Gold medal achievement.
As a concerned citizen we should neither support corrupt bureaucrat whatsoever he may be nor public who take law into his hand as it lead chaos in the country.
Therefore it will be not wise on our part to criticize and support any party rather we should try to refine our system.

We can’t let it go
I would like to give few clarifications regarding the current fiasco which has engulfed everyone in the State.
Some of the readers may find my opinion in bitter taste but nobody is above the community and after that comes organization and then comes individual.
First and foremost, ANSU stands for welfare of entire Nyishi community and students’ community of Nyishi in particular. When person like Pradeep Thakur write bad against the community, ANSU can’t maintain stoic silence and let it go as it is.
Some of the concern citizens have expressed their ire over the movement of ANSU, which we take it with pinch of salt. The writers have little or no knowledge at all on the issue. Before commenting on sensitive issue of high magnitude such as the present one, the writer ought to have complete knowledge on the issue. Their careless comment and opinion may aggravate the matter to worst.
ANSU is a matured organization and do not subscribe to frequent bandh culture in the State but when all options are locked by the authorities, the Union is left with no option but to resort to bandh in order to get justice.
This is very painful to observe that some people with vested interest and ulterior motive are trying to tarnish the image and glory of ANSU in order to divert the main issue. As in other community, there are black sheep in our community too who would go to any extent to achieve their purpose. However, we draw satisfaction from the fact that 99% of the Nyishi community is supporting our movement against the injustice meted out to us.
The concern citizen can write and question the leadership quality of executive members but they cannot question the integrity of the ANSU as an institution. ANSU has solid foundation behind it ever since it started. Hence, I urge all not to attempt to tarnish the image of ANSU as we will not tolerate any kind of destructive criticism. Constructive opinions and suggestion can be exchanged for greater interest of the community and state as a whole.
Let me clarify once again, we are not against the State Government. Our demand is; to arrest Pradeep Thakur for his derogatory remark and revelation of source. We need support and cooperation from everyone at this juncture. We are not against any tribe either. We know that all tribal people of Arunachal have same origin and down the line by insulting Nyishi, Pradeep Thakur has insulted every Arunachalee. We need support and love of every Arunachalee at this hour.
Give them a chance too
I would like to bring to the notice of the Director of Women Welfare and Child Development
Department that like my mother, there are many Anganwadi workers who served the state
