BJP demands action plan to solve insurgency problem in trouble-torn districts
KHONSA, Mar 14: The State unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today demanded the
Arunachal Pradesh Government to ensure safety and security of the people of trouble-torn
Tirap and Changlang districts.
Insecurity and uncertainty is looming large in most people’s lives due to frequent
turf war between the two factions of NSCN in the districts, including the newly created
Longding, BJP said.
The Centre and the State Government can not and should not remain a mute spectator
of the prevailing situation. They should rise above politics and come forward with
effective action plan and strategies to solve the insurgency problems permanently,
said the party in a press statement. “The ground situation seems very horrible, traumatic
and distressing,” the party said adding that innocent citizens especially the youths
are being victimized due to mistaken identity and wrong intelligence feedback etc.
BJP, however, appreciated Arunachal Pradesh Police for their timely rescue operations
along with security forces during the recent gun fight at Borduria-Bogapani villages
The party also criticized the government for lack of proper developmental initiatives
in those districts.
Pasighat cries erratic power
PASIGHAT, Mar 14: The residents of Pasighat township are frustrated a lot these days
with erratic power supply to the township continuing for the last several months.
There has been no respite from unscheduled power cut bringing the normal lives of
the common people to a complete standstill. The unscheduled power cut is compelling
the consumers to make alternative arrangement at extra cost. It has not only affected
the general public, businessmen and students but also normal functioning of government
offices. It has badly affected the functioning of “Jana Subidha Kendra” and DIPRO
The consumers blame the department’s indifferent attitude towards the present power
“'The department is sincere only in sending bills and disconnection of power supply.
They do not understand the plight of common people. The century-old Pasighat town
has now become ‘Land of Power Crisis,” said Pasighat Public Welfare Committee (PPWC)
president Okom Yosung.
“We met the chief minister, power minister and other top officials last year seeking
their immediate intervention to find a lasting solution to the problem, but nothing
fruitful has come to fore in this regard till date,” lamented Yosung.
Having failed to get any positive response, the PPWC threatened to launch democratic
movement against the authority, if the power scenario does not improve within a week.
“We have decided to launch agitation if the situation is not improved within a week,”
Yosung added. Pasighat Bazaar Committee president Onyok Tamuk alleged that the department
officials, despite their promise, have miserably failed to restore regular power
supply in the area. They become more accustomed to diverse lame excuse like technical
snags at main power supply line for this chronic power problem.
According to sources from Pasighat Electrical Division, disruption in power supply
to Pasighat is due to common circuit breaker at Pangin trijunction point of the 132
kv line which needs to be rectified immediately by installing Minimum Oil Circuit

BJP demands proper measures to save Capital
ITANAGAR, Mar 14: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Arunachal Pradesh has demanded the
state government to find out the actual cause of forest fire and take proper measures
to prevent recurrence of such fire in future.

the BJP in a release said authorities should check rampant setting of winter dry
bush, leaves grasses on fire everywhere in the capital by certain elements and bulldozing
of jungle land which causes landslides and erosion and leads to climate change. Instead
of blaming jhum cultivation being practiced by poor families for livelihood, the
authorities should check unplanned construction of buildings and forceful encroachment
of land in capital area which pose threat to the city dwellers.
Expressing concern over the recent fire incident at Nirjuli in which a mother
and her two minor sons lost their lives, the BJP demanded adequate compensation for
the victim’s family. Proper steps should be taken to deliver justice to the fire
victims, it added.

of potable water to the citizens of the Capital Complex.
Illegal activities on the rise in boundary area
RUKSIN, Mar 14: Anti-social activities including robbery and theft of precious articles
besides rampant use of prohibited drugs at Ruksin area along the Assam-Arunachal
boundary have become order of the day causing great concern to the local residents.
The elite section blames the police and excise department of both the states for
ignoring the alarming situation.
“It is very unfortunate that the administration has no control over those anti-social
elements. Lack of police patrolling during night hours is indirectly encouraging
them to commit such crimes,” they alleged. The local administration, following a
complaint lodged by Deving Village Women Welfare Association had conducted a series
of operations against illicit liquor and narcotic practices during the early month
of this year but without any major achievement.
Inquiry has revealed that most of the shops/vendors at Ruksin gate are involved with
trading of Opium, Ganja and other contraband drugs substances. Moreover, easy access
to cheap Indian made foreign liquor (IMFL) is severely affecting the environment
of the area. These illegal activities are going on unabated in broad day-light under
the very nose of the administration.

According to a report by scientists, climate change could lead to huge water shortages
in southern India’s fertile Godavari river basin. The team of scientists used water
flows and soil data in the Godavarai basin from 1961 to 1990 as the baseline and
simulated availability from 2021 to 2050 in the near-term and from 2071 to 2098 in
the long-term. They predicted a mix of excess rainfall and drought-like conditions
in vast stretches of the eastern part of the basin.
The simulations showed rainfall increase in the river basin due to global warming,
but with variations in quantity and intensity in different areas. This would result
in floods and droughts; soil erosion and deposition of soil sediments in river basins.
Scientists say that an increase in soil sediments would lower the capacity of dams
and hydroelectric power stations due to clogging, while higher temperatures would
reduce the availability of soil water, affecting crops, and calling for conservation
The Godavari study is the offshoot of a series of studies on river basins conducted
by the Indian government as part of its national communication project for the 2007
meet of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The present study and the
NATCOM project provide inputs into the national water policy that is being revised
by the Indian government to incorporate adaptation strategies to cope with global
The revised draft of the policy suggested options like more storage reservoirs including
hydropower plants, creating basin committees to decide on local water issues and
pricing of water.
Be true to yourself
It’s true that people of Arunachal Pradesh are agitated and completely not satisfied
with the way our state is governed. Our system is in total mess.
Everyone is aware that the people in power are corrupt from head to toe. But the
truth is we Arunachalees do nothing, only brag about everything. We never try to
mend our own way of living. Our people have the habit of discussing everything but
finally they will land up where they have started and sleep out saying what can we
do. Each and every individual in our state especially the educated lots in some way
or the other are entwined with the corrupt system and no one is willing to raise
their voice. There is lack of sincerity, honesty, will power and determination in
every individual. These words may sound like morale lecture but they are the pillar
to success. Our people are like those fools who wait for the snake to enter their
compound, otherwise they consider themselves safe. But they forget that a snake is
a friend of none. I am not asking our people for an outbreak like in Tunisia or Egypt
or Libya, but to be true to yourself.
Preserve every drop of water
There is every possibility of an alternative for every thing except water. It is
next to impossible to survive without water. Of all planets, our mother earth is
the only planet that has life due to presence of water body. The water content of
the earth is around 70 percent. But if we take the case of water scarcity in Itanagar,
it seems that the water content is in opposite ratio. There is an acute shortage
of water in every sector. It is being supplied once in a week in some sectors, once
in three days in another sectors that too for a very short period of 30 to 60 minutes
and sometimes the supplied water is not at all useable. How the city dwellers are
surviving with these small amount of water that invites a thorough examination and
In metropolis like Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata, concern department makes water available
every moment that too directly drinkable. Many a times, we use to blame rapid growth
of population in the capital complex for irregular water and electricity supply,
but the truth is that the big cities of our country with 100 times more than the
population of our capital are providing potable water to the citizens regularly.
No doubt, the public as a whole is also responsible for the scarcity of water.
There cannot be enough water without forest and thereby preservation of forest is
the need of the hour. As responsible citizens, we can at least plant trees thereby
helping in protecting forest and environment. We should remember that every drop
of water is important for survival of all creatures. At the same time concern department
should take necessary measures for regular and smooth supply of water to city dwellers.
Learn to appreciate
The pathetic batting display in Australia ultimately brought Rahul Dravid to the
realization that he was way past his prime and the wall had got crumbled to pieces.
Thus instead of trying to hang around the team by exploiting his past glories and
achievements, the self-respecting person in Dravid has promptly quit the scene. It
is high time the "God" in the Indian team takes a cue from Dravid and immediately
calls it a day. When will the completely exhausted "superstar" learn to appreciate
the fact that currently he is nothing but a liability of Team India and that he holds
absolutely no right to hurt national interests by "presenting" a consistent series
of atrociously poor scores just to pursue his "century of centuries" -- nothing more
than a personal record and mere piece of statistics?
