YARP serves ultimatum

Association of Ross Panchayat (YARP) has submitted an ultimatum to the Papum Pare
DC for redressal of it grievances within 15 days failing which it threatened to launch
bandh call at NEEPCO Ltd’s Pare Hydro Electric Project (PHEP) site.
In the ultimatum, YARP demanded for creation of job opportunity to locals other than
the ITI certificate holders.
As the pre-requisite qualification for undergoing ITI course is class VII or X but
there are many unemployed local youths who are class XII pass, Diploma holders, graduates
and post graduates, it reasoned.
It also resented the failure of NEEPCO authorities to adhere to its resolution saying
that in a meeting held on November 16 last held at Shillong to discuss the vexed
issue, it was decided that local/bonafide youths will be offered job but contrary
to what they resolved in the meeting, they have appointed non-bonafide candidates
in those places.
We demand termination of those non-bonafide candidates who have been employed in
the last three years, it further said.

ITANAGAR, Jun 13: The first Governing Body meeting of the State Rural Livelihoods
Mission (SRLM) was held today under the Chairmanship of Chief Minister Nabam Tuki,
who is the President of the Mission’s General body. After a threadbare discussion
the By-Laws and Annual Action Plan for the financial year 2013-14 of SRLM was approved
SRLM, constituted as an empowered body headed by the Chief Minister under Societies
Registration Act, is in line with the Center’s National Rural Livelihoods Mission
(NRLM) or Aajeevika to implement new strategy of poverty alleviation woven around
community based institutions. The objective is to promote diversified and gainful
self employment and wage employment opportunities for sustainable increase in incomes
of the rural poor. The Mission would closely work with the under-implementation Chief
Minister’s Livelihood Mission.
It is perceived that the Mission would work in conjunction with MG-NREGA for creating
sustainable job opportunities in both wage and self employment for rural poor.
Appreciating the officers for coming up with the by-laws and annual action plan for
the Mission to be implemented in the state, Tuki emphasized on focusing on creation
of self-employment avenues rather than provide the poor with jobs. He sought cooperation
and coordination between all allied departments for successful implementation of
The Chief Minister suggested that representatives from the Labour and Employment
department may also be made members of the SRLM for extending the reach of the Mission.
At the moment, representatives from Finance, Planning, Horticulture, Agriculture,
Industries, Women & Child Development & Social Justice & Empowerment, Animal Husbandry,
Rural Development and banks are members of the State Mission. After minutely going
through the annual action plan of SRLM, the Chief Minister also suggested inclusion
of few blocks in Changlang and Lohit districts under the ambit of the Mission. The
Mission would be implemented in all the 17 districts of the state in a phased manner
under a full-time CEO.
The meeting was attended by Finance-Planning Minister Chowna Mein, RD Minister Tanga
Byaling, RWD Minister Pema Khandu, Horticulture Minister Setong Sena, Women & Child
Development Minister N Tingkhatra, Chief Secretary H K Paliwal, Finance Commissioner
Ramesh Negi and other officials.
NABARD deprives local youths of job opportunities, says APPDSU
ITANAGAR, Jun 13: All Papum Pare District Students’ Union (APPDSU) has accused NABARD
authority of depriving local indigenous unemployed youth from taking part in recruitment
process against three posts of Assistant Managers in their Bank by not publishing
advertisement in any of the local dailies.
Informing that three non-APST candidates have been appointed in NABARD in the posts
of Assistant Manager against quota reserved for Arunachal Pradesh, APPDSU demanded
the GM, NABARD, Itanagar to immediately cancel the appointments and conduct fresh
recruitment by floating advertisement for the posts in local dailies afresh.
“The advertisement should have been published in at least one of the daily newspapers
published from the state as Arunachal Pradesh was very much a part of the target
states. By not publishing the advertisement in local newspapers Arunacha-lee candidates
have been deprived of the opportunities to compete in the recruitment process,” the
release said. It said that only a few people in the state have regular access to
internet and employment news due to communication and other bottleneck and advertisement
in local newspapers would have been the best, APPDSU reasoned. It further accused
NABARD of violating the right to equal opportunity as granted by the Constitution
by adopting ‘discriminating policy’ towards Arunachal Pradesh.
APPDSU further demanded the GM, NABARD, Itanagar to voluntarily shutdown their office
from June 17 next in case it fails to fulfil union's demand.

for many students hailing from poor family.

members. The society stated that success of Taba Tahang once again proves that hard
work is the only mantra to success in life.
Tirap DC to join as Governor’s secretary
KHONSA, June 13: The Tirap Deputy Commissioner Dr Sachin Shinde has been transferred
from Khonsa on 12th June to join as Secretary to the Governor of Arunachal Pradesh.
Longding DC Shilpa Shinde has taken over the charges from her husband for the time
being. A grand farewell meeting was held at the NBF hall, Khonsa to bid adieu to
While thanking all the officers and officials for their unstinted co-operation and
support the out-going DC asked them to work with the same spirit adding that the
government employees of Tirap were working under a very trying circumstance. All
the officers and the staff who shared their views in the farewell function spoke
eloquently and glowingly about the contributions of Shinde. As a matter of fact,
Shinde will be remembered for introducing new and innovative schemes which have
already benefited the people like Tirap District Career Counseling Cell, Biometric
attendance system, CCTV cameras at different locations, rain water harvesting etc.
Though he was in Tirap just for a year, Sachin Shinde left an indelible mark in governance
and effective administration. DIPRO
Who are minorities in Arunachal?
ITANAGAR Jun 13: The Union Minister of State for Minority Affairs Ninong Ering in
an official programme at Pasighat town on Wednesday claimed that 40% population of
state belongs to Christians, Buddhists and Muslims. The Minister believes that on
the basis of above data, Arunachal should seek various benefits extended by the Centre
under minority affairs department. The Minister also urged all the deputy commissioners
of state to create minority affair blocks in their respective districts.
The statement of union minister is creating confusion in the minds of several Arunachalee
citizens. For the tribal dominated state like ours, definition of minority always
bears different meaning. Usually persons or group hailing from smaller tribe are
considered as minority in the state. However Indian constitution categorizes minority
group on the basis of religious practise. Minorities in India include Muslims, Sikhs,
Christians, Buddhists and Zoroastrians (Parsis) notified as minority communities
under Section 2 (c) of the National Commission for Minorities Act, 1992. If we go
by constitutional notification, most of the religious minority population of state,
which minister is talking about, hail from ethnic tribal group. Buddhists followers
of Tawang, West Kameng, Mechukha, Tuting, Lohit and Changlang are all indigenous
tribals. Similarly Christian believers hailing from various tribe’s of Arunachal
are also indigenous citizen of state who all comes under Schedule tribe category.
Under such circumstances, will our respected minister explain to the Arunachalee
people who are minority group in the state?
Also constitutionally a person cannot enjoy benefits of Schedule Tribe and minority
status at the same time. If our minister wants to bring in central fund using minority
tag, it may open up the door for withdrawal of ST status accorded to all the tribal
group of Arunachal. Are we ready for it? The politicians of state have sold everything
including rivers, mountains for the sake of money. Is minority the new buzz word
to extract money from central government?
If government of Arunachal Pradesh is trying to bring fund under minority affairs
department for the migrant Muslim Bangladeshi workers, it will set dangerous trend.
Once these workers start availing benefits under such scheme, they might start looking
for more such assistance. This will seriously compromise rights of the indigenous
tribal communities of state. For a state like Arunachal which is depended on central
grant for development, everyone understands the need for availing various schemes
provided by union government. However receiving fund by compromising with our ST
status does not augur well for the tribal’s of Arunachal.
Avail optimum benefits under MsDP: Dabii
PASIGHAT, Jun 13: Minority concentrated Ramle Banggo Block of East Siang district
has already been notified under Multi sectoral Development Program (MsDP) by the
government of India and we should avail optimum benefits with full of dedication
and sincerity for better future of the block, stated the senior Congressman Tako
Dabii. He was addressing a Block Level Committee (BLC) meeting held at Nari conference
hall, which was organized by the CDPO Onyok Panyang under the chairmanship of Nari
ADC T.S. Mibang. Dabii who is also local MLA of Nari-Koyu informed that there are
several schemes of Minority Affairs department (GoI) keeping in view of infrastructural
development in all sectors like roads, forest-conservation, education, agriculture,
horticulture, electricity, drinking water, sanitation, rural housing etc for which
sufficient funds will be provided by the Union Ministry of Minority Affairs. He advised
the committee members to prepare reasonable and need-base schemes and share views
on many innovative projects/works which can be taken up under MsDP scheme in the
block for further submission to the higher authorities.
However, the committee approved various schemes which will be recommended to the
district and state levels through the Social Justice and Empowerment and Tribal Affairs
department to the union ministry for necessary approval and funding. Sincere efforts
of the officers and local leaders will bring bigger change in days to come, MLA Dabii
In his deliberation, Chairman Mibang welcomed the members in the maiden meeting and
expressed his happiness for enthusiastic participation of the BLC Members in the
meeting and urged them for forward meaningful ideas and suggestions for proper implementing
MsDP scheme in the Block.
In his address, the Member Secretary Onyok Panyang presented a brief report on this
issue and informed that Ramle Bango was the first notified block in the district
and in the state 26 blocks have been chosen in total by the GoI till date. All the
head of offices of Nari-Koyu and newly elected Anchal Samity Chairpersons Nari-Seren
and Koyu-Korang, namely Y. Sora and Zirgi Kadu respectively attended the meeting.
Eagle Trophy Invitational Football Tournament from August 3
ITANAGAR, Jun 13: The once famous Eagle Trophy Football Tournament is being revived
from August this year after a gap of 17 years.
While informing this, Arunachal Pradesh Football Players’ Association (APFPA) General
Secretary Kipa Ajay informed that the fourth edition of the invitational football

Travel is not only an effective antidote to ennui; it is a treatment of ethnocentrism.
It lifts the veil of custom from the outside world and exposes the latter to view
with all its wonders, excitement and novelties. Travel is the outcome of insatiable
curiosity of man for knowing and exploring his environment. Travel educates a person
by broadening his or her outlook. So everybody yearns for a quick getaway at the
first given chance. However, for many—this remains a distant dream put away by long
list of things to do and deadlines to meet. Most of the time, specially the journalist
live an entirely circumscribed existence being slave to a dead routine.
Thus, the Government of Arunachal Pradesh through the Department of Information and
Public Relations and with collaboration of Arunachal Press Club (APC), Itanagar conducted
a weeklong trip of 10 member media team to a land of dramatic contours to provide
them an opportunity to transcend the mechanical and trivial existence of their daily
life besides helping them gain firsthand knowledge on flagship programmes implemented
by the Sikkim Government.
Sikkim is a land of dramatic contours and its capital is Gangtok with a throbbing
life. There is an aura about Gangtok that grips every visitor and is a perfect place
to unwind. Gangtok has a strong industrial presence with tourism being its heartbeat
and it does not pull itself away when it comes to hospitality. Just as its unpredictable
weather, there is always something different happening, which wasn’t quite expected.
Visit to this mystic land of Sikkim was truly wonderful. Our journey which commenced
from May 26 finally ended on May 31 after spending 72 hours in Gangtok.
Long car journey is bit arduous and less pleasant yet it can be filled with many
surprises. For all of us too, Sikkim was one of the well known holiday destinations
of the North East and is a source of many pleasant surprises. Its cross-cultural
ethnic diversity, its ancient temples, its rich tradition of handcrafts and handloom
are always tempting enough to draw the discerning holiday maker like us. T. T. Lepcha,
Editor in the Department of Information and Public Relations, provided us all possible
help, accompanied our company and remained with us till the last day of our trip.
He is a man of great inspiration and dignity for his Lepcha community.
Here is a short sketch of what we did during our short stay in Sikkim:
Day 1 - Oomph of Balutar
Led by deputy director Obang Tayeng, the 10 member team visited 510 MW Teesta-V Hydro
Power project constructed by the NHPC at Teesta River in Balutar, East Sikkim district
and interacted with the authorities there. Later, during the day the team visited
ongoing 96 MW Dikchu Hydro Power project at river Bakcha, which is one of the major
tributaries of the Teesta. The power developer of the 96 MW Dikchu Hydro Power project
is Sneha Kinetic Power Project Limited and the project is expected to be commissioned
by 2014. The state of Sikkim has increased and strengthened its power infrastructures
and is now a self reliant power producer.
Day 2 - Amidst Nathu La Pass
Situated 56 Kms away from Gangtok, Nathula Pass is at an altitude of 14,700 ft. bordering
between India and China in the Tibetan Plateau. It is one of the highest motorable
roads and richly covered by many varieties of Alpine Flora & Fauna. Though the rain
played killjoy on our visit to Nathula but it could not dampen the spirit of our
team as each member had some reason to rejoice amidst Nathula’s grandeur. Nathula
is well known for its scenic beauty and thriving border trade between Indians and
Day 3- Mixed sojourn
Our trip included in Rumtek Monastery, Banjhakari Falls Energy Park, World Class
football Paljor Stadium and Sir Thutob Namgyal Memorial Hospital at Gangtok. Visit
to Ranka Model Village was abandoned by the team due to unavoidable circumstances
which prevail throughout our trip. Yet, the mixed sojourn has its own fairy tale
to be retold later.
Rumtek Monastery-The Rumtek Monastery is about a 45 minutes drive on the hill opposite
Gangtok. It is the Dharma Chakra Center and seat of His Holiness the Gyalwa Karmapa
who is the head of Kagyupa order of Tibetan Buddhism. The Rumtek Monastery is constructed
by XVIth Karmapa in 1962.
Banjhakari Falls Energy Park developed at the outskirts of Gangtok is a picturesque
tourist spot and is constructed by Sikkim Rural Management and Development department.
Paljor Stadium- The world class Paljor Stadium for football was inaugurated by Dr
APJ Abdul Kalam President of India on 22 September 2005. The stadium is equipped
with all the requisite modern facilities.
Sir Thutob Namgyal Memorial Hospital is the biggest government hospital in the state
of Sikkim. The professionalism of the hospital management and cleanliness prevailing
is praiseworthy and appreciable. The 10-member team led by Secretary IPR Mrs Indra
Mallo Jain was received by Dr Yogesh Verma, Medical Superintendent of 300 bedded
Sir Thutob Namgyal Memorial Hospital and other hospital authorities who later explained
about the various health initiatives launched by the Government of Sikkim for improving
the health of people in the state.
That Sikkim is the model developing state in the north east can be gauzed by the
presence of many national and multi-national corporate houses including pharmaceutical
giants such as Sun Pharma, Cipla, Ranbaxy besides health industries including Apollo
Hospitals and five star hotels which indications of its progressive character. The
department of IPR also brings out weekly newspapers in all local languages with an
objective of not only disseminating information to general public but also to promote
and develop tribal languages which are vulnerable to extinction sans government patronage.
The 72 hour tour to the small yet beautiful Himalayan state was a rich and eye-opening
experience for all the team members.
As the world marked the World Day against Child Labour on Wednesday, over a hundred
children were rescued from bondage by Delhi-based child-rights organisation, Bachpan
Bachao Andolan. Millions of children, however, continue to languish, their loss
of rights and dignity exaggerated by sexual exploitation and conditions ranging from
absolute to near-slavery.
The situation echoes in a report released by the International Labour Organisation
in Geneva highlighting how an estimated 10.5 million children worldwide - most of
them under age - are working as domestic workers in people's homes, in hazardous
and sometimes slavery-like conditions.
Six and a half million of these child labourers are aged between five and 14 years-old.
More than 71 per cent are girls, the ILO report says.
According to the latest figures in a new ILO report, Ending Child labour in domestic
work, they work in the homes of a third party or employer, carrying out tasks such
as cleaning, ironing, cooking, gardening, collecting water, looking after other children
and caring for the elderly.
Vulnerable to physical, psychological and sexual violence and abusive working conditions,
they are often isolated from their families, hidden from the public eye and become
highly dependent on their employers. Many might end up being commercially sexually
The report is particularly scathing on India, a country on the path of enterprise,
commercial and industrial development unseen anywhere else in the democratic world.
Providing a picture of helplessness on the part of impoverished families, the study
says that nearly a third of families had no idea where their children, mostly daughters,
were working, and 27 per cent admitted they knew that they were being beaten and
Upload govt job advertisement in department website
Through the column of your esteemed daily I would like to draw the attention of concerned
authorities to a matter because of which students are suffering. Today due to non
availability of any kind of information online regarding Govt. job advertisement,
the students staying outside the state are facing problem. The job advertisement
in the online website of departments is not maintained. It’s the responsibility of
the head of the department to maintain such information in their respective website.
As we all know that newspaper is the only medium for getting any information on govt.
job advertisement. Otherwise we have to go to the offices to gather information.
How can a student studying outside the state of Arunachal Pradesh get time to go
and collect information. If department publish such information in their website
it would be very easy for the student communities studying outside the state or in
some remote areas of Arunachal Pradesh to get the information positively. Almost
all the Government Dept. of Arunachal Pradesh has launched their official website
but it’s not updated. It must be updated every day with new information and new ideas.
Lastly, I would like to request the concerned authorities to look into this matter
and work out a solution at the earliest possible for the betterment and welfare of
the Students of Arunachal Pradesh.

Law should be equal to all
Our ADM cum Estate Officer Mr. Talo Potom has done a lot of complimentary works for
beautification of our one and only Capital Complex. For his tremendous work State
Govt, has already awarded him and I personally, thank our ADM and hope far better
future for him.
Let me narrate you one incident, an incident which is always in my mind and still
echoing in my ears. Few months ago when eviction was being carried out by team led
by our dynamic and energetic ADM near Bank Tinali against shop likes Gumti, Saloon,
vendors etc I was also witnessing the whole episode. I asked ADM regarding eviction
process, he without hesitating told me that all the shops whether small or big buildings
and without discrimination on the basis of caste, status and religion along ROW of
the National Highway will be demolished for making way for construction of four lane
highway. Naturally hearing his reply I was very much happy thinking that one day
our capital will be like other metropolitan city. At the same time, I saw a women
standing nearby tree and crying helplessly. I came near her and asked the reason
for crying. She told me that she was the owner of unfortunate shop that was demolished.
She had constructed the shop by taking loan from a friend on interest basis. How
can I look after my family, how can I refund debt, this was only source of my family
income she continued. After hearing her plight tears came out of my eyes. But at
that moment I thought our ADM is doing it for the betterment of our Capital Complex.
But alas! Now I am realizing my assumption was wrong. Days have passed, month gone,
there is no sign of eviction drive against big building whose owners are high profile
people and still standing. Only poor men were targeted. As a concern citizen of state
I am putting up few questions to our ADM. Why you carried out eviction drive against
only poor men who constructed building by taking loan on 10% interest? Did you ever
realize what happens to those persons who rent the shop to earn little bit of ROTI
& KAPDA for his family? These people are suffering.
Now, I realize that medal awarded by govt, for your good deed has became meaningless.
Our hope from you for better future has shattered!
