Violence not solution to any problem: BJP
ITANAGAR, Jun 19: The Bharatiya Janata Party Arunachal Pradesh expresses deep shock
over the violent attack and ransacking of NRL Petrol pump near Naharlagun on Monday.

society has high hope on the younger generations, the BJP said adding “because of

Pradesh a safe heaven for the miscreants and even hard core criminals,’’ the party

to be blamed for the slip off, however, closer look shows that the ineffective and
rot system is the root cause helping even those of hard core criminals to get away.

the gravity of the deteriorating law and order situations, the BJP said.

Most species at greatest risk from climate change are not currently conservation
priorities, finds an IUCN study that introduces a pioneering method to assess the
vulnerability of species to climate change. The paper, published in the journal PLOS
ONE, is one of the biggest studies of its kind, assessing all of the world's birds,
amphibians and corals. It draws on the work of more than 100 scientists over a period
of five years.
Up to 83 per cent of birds, 66 per cent of amphibians and 70 per cent of corals that
were identified as highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change are not currently
considered threatened with extinction on The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
They are therefore unlikely to be receiving focused conservation attention, according
to the study.
Up to nine percent of all birds, 15 per cent of all amphibians and nine percent of
all corals that were found to be highly vulnerable to climate change are already
threatened with extinction. These species are threatened by unsustainable logging
and agricultural expansion but also need urgent conservation action in the face of
climate change, according to the authors.
The study's novel approach looks at the unique biological and ecological characteristics
that make species more or less sensitive or adaptable to climate change. Conventional
methods have focussed largely on measuring the amount of change to which species
are likely to be exposed. IUCN will use the approach and results to ensure The IUCN
Red List continues to provide the best possible assessments of extinction risk, including
due to climate change.
This is with reference to letter published in your esteemed daily by Taring Mama
acting chairperson of Arunachal citizens Right (ACR). As per his knowledge one individual
can avail both ST and Minority privileges. As per my observation it is impossible.
Through the RTI, we found some interesting information from department of social
justice, empowerment and tribal affair Government of Arunachal Pradesh. We had asked,
constitutionally if an ST converts to any religion will he/she remain ST?
The reply by the department was yes. But a person can obtain benefit either from
ST or Minority and there should not be duplicity. For instance Indira Awas Yojna
house scheme. If a person gets benefit under IAY from Minority status, he/she should
not get benefit of IAY from any other source as a ST. But as per the statement made
by the Arunachal citizen rights Acting Chairperson one individual can avail both
ST and Minority privileges. A big confusion is whether the department or Government
runs ACR. The social organization must always fight for the public service and indigenous
people. They should not work as the government agency. Government has several agencies
to reply the public grievances and we should let them answer our question.
ACR was a strong social organization in late 2004. If we look back, the Arunachal
Citizens Right leader’s fought for public cause and they were the one to file PIL
against the government for Rs 1000 Corers PDS scam. Therefore we respect such type
of strong organization.
In India minority includes Muslim, Sikhs, Christian and Zoroastrian have been notified
as minority communities under section 2(c) of the national commission for minorities
Act 1992. Under article 30(1) of the constitution uses linguistics and religious
believe for identifying minority.
• The four districts of Arunachal Pradesh which have both low socio economic
and basic amenities parameters have been has been selected under Category ‘A’ minority.
East Kameng, Changlang, Lower Subansiri and Tirap districts are part of category
A district. (East Kameng- Christian population is 14550 which means total 26% of
population is minority in district) (Lower Subansiri-Christian population is 24,078
total which means 25 % people are minority, Tirap district has 55% Christian population).
• Another sub category B1 list of District which have socio economic parameter
below national average are Tawang, West kameng and Papum Pare. Tawang District has
buddhist population of 29,083 and Sikhs 420 which means in total 78 percent citizen
comes under Minority, West Kameng Buddhist population is 33,104 therefore total 47
percent people comes under minority and in Papum pare Christian population is 36,574
total which means 33% of citizen are minority.
On the above percentage, who will be called as the minority? Most of Christian believer
are indigenous people and Buddhist follower are also tribal. They all are enjoying
facilities as schedule tribe status.
In Papum Pare, Lower subansiri and East kameng district tribes like Nyishi, Apatani,
Aka and Miji resides. Some of these populations are the believer of the Christianity.
Will they be counted as minority or ST in Arunachal Pradesh? And who are the minority
in these districts?
Arunachal Law Students Union
We all need to unite and stand up together
I am overwhelmed by the response of the public in my fight against the atrocities
unleashed by the activists of AAPSU. This means I am no longer alone in this fight
against injustice. For how long shall we tolerate being bullied and intimidated?
For how long shall we keep quiet and ignore all these atrocities? How they expect
me to give free fuel to them? If they are indeed on real AAPSU duty on behalf of
the State, can`t they have atleast the courtesy to make a request? Many have suffered
the same fate before me and in order to prevent that from happening to anyone else
in future, we all need to rise up, united and peacefully. Everybody has had enough.
If this habit of taking away other’s goods and materials for free is imbibed in our
young Arunachalees, how appropriate would it be to call them “OUR FUTURE”? All that
I have done is raised my voice against the misdeeds of the activists of AAPSU and
they, on the other hand, have resorted to violence. For how long shall the violence
keep our mouth shut?
The matter concerns me individually. However, the issue involved herein has immense
public importance and directly relates to the well-being of our beautiful Arunachal
Pradesh and its residents. It’s me today but it may be you tomorrow. I appeal that
no group, community or regional aspects be attributed to it. If at all any united
move does take place, it should be by the like-minded people of Arunachal Pradesh
and not by any particular group.
I am currently out of station owing to my duties as a father and the incident had
taken place in my absence. I am not in a position to come back to Itanagar right
away as my duty are not yet over but I shall be back very shortly. My properties
have been damaged and ransacked, money looted and records destroyed but my children’s
education, career and future has drawn my priority as the authority shall take care
of the perpetrators of violence as a case has been registered.
I appeal to all the people of Arunachal Pradesh, especially the civil societies and
young students, to raise and keep standing behind me as I take on this resistance
against such atrocity and injustice, not only for me but for everyone concerned and
for the whole of Arunachal Pradesh. We all need to unite and stand up together.
I look forward for your continued support, suggestions and initiatives.

Attention Chief Minister
Through your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the attention of our present chief
minister Nabam Tuki about the extortion initiated by AAPSU against Mr. Tony Pertin.
As we know that AAPSU is the most prestigious student body of our state but if they
initiate such vandalism against a single opponent then it is not appreciable. These
matters can be solved in a more mature way without destroying any public property.
AAPSU is setting a very negative image infront of us. I conducted a survey in a social
networking site about the vandalism where 90 percent of the responsi-ble youths commented
that such acts should be avoided for state's peace and harmony and yes, they are
correct about that.
This is not a Tony Pertin vs AAPSU fight anymore, it’s about the peace and security
we feel in our state from such barbaric acts.
Time to bring the change on our own
Through the columns of your esteemed daily I would like to share my view on the burning
issue of lawlessness and corruption of this Himalayan state .After witnessing series
of traumatizing incident over the days, months and years, I feel that seeking justice
from GoAP is like expecting strawberry on a mango tree whether it be a Vandalism
related case, extortion, attack on media persons and manhandling Government employees,
Murder or an Interstate boundary dispute. Sad to say we Arunchalee's are like “Unmindful
mother” who only care when her own child cries. While driving on the road we carry
crabs mentality on a one lane highway as we own the road. In 60-member assembly seat
present Congress Government has 55 MLA's and still no one dares to be the Home Minister
to restrain the ongoing lawlessness wave among citizens. We the citizens of Arunachal
are often infected by disease call "short term-memory loss “cause we vote for the
same leader whom we have been cursing for the last 5year’s and even if we go for
a “wind of change” by electing a new leader, the new incumbent person is already
corrupted long back before joining actual politics, so can we except pro-public initiatives?
Can we expect healthy pro-public debate in the assembly with only 4 opposition MLA
to highlight public grievances? All I can hear is a big “No”. Apart from that “Right
to Information Act (2005 )” though presently “Rusting” which is the only sole mechanism
through which we can nab out the misappropriation of fund by any public or government
servant or an individual are being used as black mailing weapon for earning easy
money by selfish-student leader , NGO's and self proclaim intellect. My question
is –How can we expect transparent and corruption free Arunachal in the years to come
with perpetual trend as mentioned above? The empowered one or so-call torch bearer
are the one busy making money instead of fighting against the injustice made to common
public. I’ll like to highlight one instance “I once asked a Government officer from
Education department long ago about his view on Jan Lok pal bill -when Jan Lok pal
movement under the leadership of Anna Hazare and it was on headline of every leading
news channel - He quoted “ chota bhai yeh Lok pal bill toh ghora (horse) ko gaas
maat kao bolney ka barabar hai.” so what I found was that even some Government servant
were against the people friendly bills like Lok pal along with mainstream politician
who equally looted the Government funds. Nowadays Government officer and engineers
are more powerful than MP's and MLA's because they have more money to influence them
during election period (un-fabricated practical truth). My fellow like-minded Arunachalee
citizen your little initiation in empowering your family ,relatives, friends and
neighbor will make difference in days to come and also by creating awareness in order
to restrain “money for vote “which is the root cause of everything. It’s my sincere
reminder and a hearty request “time to bring the change on our own”.
Arunachal media is biased
The ugly incident of AAPSU member ransacking NRL petrol depot has got huge publicity.
Most of the capital based newspaper has given prominent space to this incident. It
shows the biasness of state media. As it involved wealthy and rich person like Mr
Tony Pertin and powerful organization like AAPSU media is giving it importance. Everyday
small shop owners are bullied in various parts of state by local goons but media
never reports about it. Poor and helpless people are suffering daily but no media
persons highlight their plight. I myself had sent letters to the editor many times
but it hardly get published. Am a poor and unknown person, so may be media person
are neglecting me. Remember Arunachal is not only about AAPSU and Mr Pertin. Do you
media persons ever visit interior place and report difficult situation people facing
there. Arunachal media only cares about capital complex and its citizen. If such
biasness continues, I will stop subscribing local newspaper.
