Heavy rains leave trails of damages at Mirem
RUKSIN, Jul 06: Torrential rain has badly affected horticultural gardens, fish ponds,
water pipelines and damaged a large portion of crop fields at Mirem village under
Bilat circle in East Siang district.
Heavy downpour on Wednesday submerged the Latu Irrigation channel and created havoc
in low lying areas of the village along Pasighat-Koyu PWD road.
Surging water of the channel eroded four fish ponds in the village and also damaged
the water pipelines at several locations besides damaging several hectares of rice
Overflowing water uprooted a number of bamboo bushes at its upstream.
Latu irrigation channel, which was reportedly constructed in 1947, is constantly
overflowing. The villagers are fully dependent on it for wet rice crops cultivation
in the vast area.
Villagers say the natural flow of the channel exerted from Remi river had never triggered
such devastation during the last five decades.
Excessive water of the hilly streams is flowing over Mirem-Mikong-Jonai PWD road
at several portions between Mikong and Mirem. A large portion of the road near Reki
portion is under rainwater which has created hurdles in surface communication.
On the other hand, flood water of Remi river inundated Mikong cornfields and all
irrigation channels are buried in siltation. Strong current of the river also eroded
protection guide wall at both sides and is posing great threat to wire-rope suspension
bridges between Remi and Miglung village. The Circle Officer (CO) of Bilat Toni
Mitkong today informed that surging water of Latu Nalla caused extensive damage to
the village and the crop field as well. Water entered into some houses and store
rooms in Mirem village and damaged 40 quintals food grains and 10 quintals potatoes.
It also damaged around 40 hectares of standing crops at Reki field.
The CO has already reported to the district administration about the disastrous situation.
He informed that ‘Circle Level Relief Committee’ was assessing the actual loss and
damages and the final report would be submitted soon.
Anchal Member of Mirem-II Yalum Mesar has demanded the authority to compensate all
villagers affected by the flood. She also demanded construction of RCC wall beside
Latu Nalla in order to prevent any disaster in future.
Treasure beads, archaic coins unearthed at Oyan village
RUKSIN, Jul 06: Precious metal statues, beads like Dogne, Doksor, Dogpun, Doglee
etc and coins of pre-independent regimes were unearthed from Oyan village.
The presence of precious merchandise came to light when some pearl traders dug out
some precious beads from the soils at Oyan village. Now, digging soil in search of
these precious items has become a regular phenomenon at Oyan.
It is expected that the soil is full of worthy pearls including beads like Dogne,
Doksor, Dogpun, Doglee etc and coins of pre-independent regimes. Besides these, a
number of coins of George V King Emperor and metallic statue of goddess Lakshmi and
parts of decorated earthen pots were unearthed from the fertile soil. The people,
particularly the old women are engaged in this job and they are earning huge money
everyday out of this.
“The contractors pay me on the basis of value of the beads, coins and other goods
unearthed and my earning in last three days is amounting to five thousand rupees”,
said Bhugali Bori, a 60-year-old lady.
Meanwhile, the Sille-Oyan Circle Officer A Perme who visited Oyan village stressed
on exploration of the pearls and archaic goods in a scientific manner.
Leading citizens of the village including Majit Pao, Dr Dhananjoy Pait and Ghana
Kt Pait requested the government’s Archaeology department for conducting a study
on unearthed archaic goods and start an exploration.
Landowners oppose 132 KV Pasighat–Roing transmission line
ROING, Jul 06: Landowners concerned with the proposed route of 132 KV Pasighat-Roing
Powergrid transmission line is opposed to the present alignment that passes through
a 5 km stretch of land in Ashali and Ezengo village in the outskirts of Roing town.
According to some of the landowners, the line will condemn the private lands in this
area on pretext of ‘beneficial’ public projects. The area which is partly forested,
partly settled with some agricultural plots is contiguous to Roing town, and the
landowners view that these lands in future will be an extension for the growing township.
The transmission line is a prioritized project of the state and central government
to improve the failing power scenario in the districts of East Siang, Lower Dibang
Valley and Lohit. It is the extension of Pasighat-Roing-Tezu-Namsai transmission
system that will draw electricity from 726 MW Pallatana Gas Based Power Projects
and 750 MW Bongaigaon Thermal Power Station.
The annoyance of the land owners is also over improper survey of legitimate land
owners in the affected line corridor. In the rudimentary map prepared by Powergrid,
as the locals allege, many of the land owner names were inaccurately marked. They
also complain of company failing to identify all the legitimate land owners.
The Powergrid on the other hand says there is no proper assistance from the local
administration and the local bodies. It had kept the administration informed ‘all
in written’ about the activities related to land acquisition process, it said.
The company also informed on some of the land owners inquiring on the land compensation
rates. On that the company had decided to go as per the state government’s decision
to adopt the present rate of compensation as followed in the ongoing Trans-Arunachal
Most of the opposition to the power line, however, is a strong voice for complete
abandoning of the project. To them the land to be affected is an enviable spot and
meant for the next generation. They also cite safety, disruption to residential plots,
unsightly views, land devaluation and liabilities as concerns.
Pathetic road condition in Upper Siang
YINGKIONG, Jul 06: Road communication to Tuting ADC headquarters in Upper Siang district

capital but the capital administration has over-hauled the government directives
and is issuing many statuary pre-conditions for availing land allotment in the capital
complex which has left many genuine families from all over the state in utter mental
distress,” AAPSU said in a release. The AAPSU team also urged the deputy commissioner
to verify all the pending land allotment cases and give equal treatment to both
privileged class and common man while considering the applications for land allotments.

to the problem.

Need of nurses in the state
It's an irony how the government of Arunachal Pradesh has failed to implement the
basic regulation of having 3:1 nurses-doctors ratio in hospitals across the state.
Today, due to shortage of nurses, the hospitals are in mayhem.
According to Government of India norms one nurse is solely responsible for three
patients, but in our state hospitals this is not so.
We did move the administration for creation of posts for staff nurses in the financial
year 2011-2012 after which the administration cleared 52 posts for staff nurses.
The annual operating plan (AOP) and SPB for the same purpose was cleared by the concern
department. But it is a matter of dismay that the file was turned down by the planning
department citing resource crunch.
Waiting for a whole financial year, we had hoped the regularization of the contractual
nurses would be carried out, but this is not so. The administration should be aware
that nurses work relentlessly even when the number of nurses is very low all over
This being a genuine case of negligence from the administrations part, we expect
the government will soon take necessary actions to acknowledge the causes of the
I am strained here to mention that every financial year many posts for the doctors
are created, which we don't refute. But on the same note, it’s astonishing to know
that equal number of nurses posts are not created.
Being a contractual staff nurse (GNM) myself, I do understand all the hardships we
face. Hence I humbly appeal for the kind attention of the administration.
I hope that our cause is pondered upon carefully and hope the administration will
create more posts for staff nurses very soon.
Do not underestimate the sentiments
People of Siang Basin & victims of Lower Siang hydro electric project warns Tajir
Siram not to give press statements without the consent of the public. The above mention
person has claimed himself to be the land owner of Siang basin on your esteemed daily
on 17th June 2012 and remarked that people opposing the project and who are fighting
for the survival of Adi & Galo land are fake.
All the statement of self style president Tajir Siram is totally meaningless. We
request him to recall the sentiment of the people on the day of 17, 18 and 20th April
2012 at Jeying, Rottung and Aalo respectively.
On these days you have witnessed the real sentiment of the project affected people.
If you really underestimate the sentiment of the people then do survey of the affected
area. Know the sentiments of the people instead of becoming president in the paper
& news paper.
Many times the world has witnessed the consequence of the people's sentiment.
People are ready to sacrifice their life for the survival of the Adi & Galo land.
This was witnessed at Jeying, Rottung and Aalo on the days of proposed public hearing
Tajir Siram who is ready to sacrifice his life for the sake of money should refrain
from such statement in future.
Lastly, don't dare to challenge the sentiment of the project affected people.

corruption committed by the people of our State. They deserve public appreciation

evidences against the corrupt minister(s) and top-brass officers.
Instead of supporting them for the greater interest of the people of Arunachal Pradesh,
some organizations has come out to defend the ministers or officers against whom
sufficient evidences are available, and could be convicted in the court of law, if
It is the high time that the whole public must support ARF otherwise they would be

According to a study conducted by the School of Public Health at Imperial College,
London, the developing world has less than five per cent chance of meeting United
Nations’ target of halving the proportion of children who suffer from hunger by 2015.
The analysis further reveals that though the nutritional status in South Asian countries
has improved significantly, one half of the world’s underweight children still live
in South Asia, mostly in India.
It is true that childhood hunger has improved since its peak in 1985. However, insufficient
progress has been made, and only five percent of the developing world is on track
to meet the UN target. One in five infants and children are moderately or severely
underweight, amounting to 110 million children around the world. Further, another
148 million are mildly underweight.
The study found that 61 out of the 141 developing countries are projected to meet
that target. However, in the developing world as a whole, less than five percent
of people have a chance at succeeding. The strongest improvements have been in Asia
and Latin America. The region falling behind is sub-Saharan Africa.
Severe challenges lie ahead. The developing nations should not allow rising food
prices to cause inequalities to increase, or cut back on investments in nutrition
