Byaling reviews health schemes, seeks cooperation
ITANAGAR, Nov 12: Health and Family Welfare Minister Tanga Byaling today stressed
on the need for change in attitude of doctors and nurses in tackling patients in
Govt. Hospitals. “It is often seen that the doctors and nurses instead of providing
healing words and touch, seen scolding and neglecting the poor patients which further
aggravates the disease” Byaling said while taking stock of the current status of
various programmes of the health department in a two-day review meeting of the health
activities which begins today at DHS Conference Hall, Naharlagun.
While seeking cooperation and guidance from all concerned for full implementation
of the people oriented health programmes, the health minister said to streamline
the manpower positioning, there is a need to follow the guidelines. Every medical
personnel must cooperate to attain universal access to health care services, he said.
On state 15% matching share to NRHM, he opined that the share should be provided
He further said that transfer and posting should be done as per sanctioned post and
not as per convenience. In case of shortage of doctors, the posts are to be created
as per need. He also made a mention of internal fight among the colleagues on seniority
and promotion and requested all concern to refrain from recurrent legal interventions.
Further, he expressed his concern over private practice by the Govt. doctors which
directly affects the patients’ care in the government hospitals. Acknowledging the
less fund allocation to the health sector, he assured that with the cooperation from
health officials, the matter would be taken up with the higher authority at the state
and central level.
The Director of Health Services, Dr. T. Basar, hoped that under the able guidance
and leadership of the health minister, the Health department will further progress.
He also urged all the participants to give correct inputs of various programmes to

NRHM highlighting the genesis, objectives, strategies and ultimate goals of NRHM.
He also dwelled on the importance of ownership of the program at all level especially
at the community level. He further highlighted the different components of NRHM,
existing health facilities, need for rationale posting of existing manpower so that
maximum health facilities are made functional to provide quality health care services.
He impressed upon the participants and the health minster on the mismatch of health
facilities notified by the state government and the health facilities recognized
by Government of India. He also presented on the issue of 15% state matching share
for NRHM from 2007-08 and the data showed that the matching share is required to
implement all the approved activities under NRHM.
Dr. K. Nishing, Jt DHS (NVBDCP) cum Addl. DHS gave a brief presentation on the status
of Malaria cases and the efforts being made in curbing the disease in the state through
IEC activities. He pointed out that though malaria is highly endemic in the state,
the department could reduce the mortality as compared to earlier years through widespread
implementation of vector control activities. He also informed the house on sporadic
cases of Japanese Encephalitis in Changlang and Lohit districts.
Dr. G. Tatu, Dy DHS (P&D) through power point presentation elaborated the state fund
allotment to the health department during the year vis-à-vis previous few years.
It was amply made clear to the health minister that the budgetary allocation of the
health department has not increased as required causing hardship in allotting funds
for different activities. He also informed that few post for District Hospital, Anjaw
have been sanctioned by the state Government during the year.
Dr. M. Jini, Chief Medical Officer, General Hospital, Naharlagun gave a presentation
on the status of General Hospital and pointed out that the hospital needed more sweepers
in order to maintain the cleanliness and hygiene of hospital especially for the new
block. Staff Nurses are required in more numbers if the hospital has to run and provide
quality health services, he added. There is also a need for more and modern equipments
for cancer operation and special fund for cancer medicine, he said. He also expressed
his desire to have a separate wing for eye and cancer patients. He also presented
the almost approved 350 bedded hospital master plan to the Health Minister and the
vision to have a 500 bedded hospital with 50 student capacity Medical College and
50 student capacity Nursing School in near future.
Anshu Prakash, Commissioner (Health & FW) appreciated the progress made under NRHM
with a special mention on the success of PPP model where NGO partners run 16 PHCs
across the state including one CHC at Deomali in Tirap district. He apprised the
Minister on the current status of positioning of Medical Officers in Sub Centres,
ANM in the hospitals which is against the norms thereby depriving the PHCs of having
the services of the Doctors and ANM at the sub centre. He pointed out that the state
has the best doctors, nurses and technicians, the only drawback being lack of proper
work culture and missionary zeal. While appreciating the Minister, he requested
all to work harder under the able leadership and guidance of health minister.

Itanagar, Nov 12: The Arunachal Pradesh government will hold talks with both the
factions of the NSCN at regional level if necessary for establishing peace in troubled
Tirap and Changlang districts of the state, Home Minister Tako Dabi said here today.

so that people could leave peacefully,'' the State Home Minister commented while
interacting with high-level police officials at police headquarters.

outfits active in the region at the national level, should involve all the Chief

the locals in their recruitment drive and extortion bids.
''We must put our sincere efforts to solve the insurgency problem in these districts

in the inter-state boundary,'' he said and hoped that Assam would certainly reciprocate

19 shortlisted in the Citizens Category of the RTI Awards
New Delhi, Nov 12: National RTI Awards has announced the names of 19 finalists in
citizens’ category. These are those individuals who made maximum public impact through
the use of RTI. These have been shortlisted out of a total of 1130 nominations received
in this category.
Take the case of Subhash Agarwal, a cloth trader based in Old Delhi. His RTI request
started a nationwide debate on whether Supreme Court and High Courts judges should
reveal their assets and liabilities. This RTI eventually led to apex court justices
disclosing their assets on the Supreme Court website. Similarly an RTI filed by another
shortlisted citizen activist, Professor Rajeev Kumar, has forced the IITs to disclose
the details of their selection procedure, stating off debate on how to improve the
Some RTI applications have had such a powerful impact so as to awaken the government
from its deep slumber. For example, Prashant Kumar Dubey, one of the finalists, used
the RTI and the media to make child malnutrition one of the most important social,
political and electoral issues in Madhya Pradesh. Another RTI journalist, Shyam Lal
Yadav, used the RTI Act to reveal expenditure incurred by the UPA government on foreign
trips made by its various union ministers. The issue raised many eyebrows, eventually
prompting Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh to write letters to his ministers asking
them to curtail expenditure on foreign travel.
However, the struggle of these activists has been not without their share of troubles.
For example an RTI filed by Akhil Gogoi, a social activist of Assam and one of the
finalists, had exposed a 1.25 crore scam in the Sampoornai Gram Rozgar Yojana (SGRY)
and Rs 60 lakh scam in the Indira Awas Yojana in Gamariguri block of Golaghat district.
This exposure had led to people protest against the corruption in the administration
of government schemes. As the result of this, Gogoi had to face the wrath of those
who had been benefiting from the corrupt practices.
The names of the final winners out of these nineteen would be announced by the jury
in a press conference on November 27, 2009. The jury consists of Actor and Film Maker
Aamir Khan, Indian Constitution Expert and Senior Advocate Fali S Nariman, Former
Chief Election Commissioner J M Lyngdoh, Author and Media Personality Madhu Trehan,
renowned Dancer and Social Activist Mallika Sarabhai, Chief Mentor of Infosys Narayana
Murthy, NDTV Chairman Prannoy Roy, Ace Badminton Player and National Badminton Coach
Pullela Gopichand, Editor and CEO of Dainik Jagran Group Sanjay Gupta, Former Chief
Justice of Supreme Court and Chairperson of National Human Rights Commission Justice
JS Verma and Santosh, a firebrand RTI Activist. The award ceremony will take place
on December 1, 2009. The award consists of Rs. two lakh, citation and a trophy.
