Campaign ends for Oct 13 poll officially
Tough challenge ahead for confident Congress
ATNS with inputs from UNI
ITANAGAR, Oct 11: The campaigning for the Oct 13 poll has officially ended this evening.
However, the official deadline will not stop many deals from being clinched.
Unofficially, the campaigning has entered into last crucial stage for the candidates
as the last 48 hours prior to the poll is make or break stage in many constituencies.
No matter what the Election Commission of India says, absolutely nothing stop the
candidates from putting in all efforts to capture power!
With a keen contest on the cards, the Congress in Arunachal Pradesh is leaving no
stone unturned to make the wind blow in its favour for the October 13 Assembly elections.
With the emergence of the NCP and first-timer Trinamool Congress as strong contenders
in the electoral battle, it would not be an easy sail for the Congress to keep its
track record intact.
The party, which won 34 seats in the 2004 elections, is facing a tough challenge
Meanwhile after wrapping up the campaigning, Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee
Nabum Tuki while addressing a press conference said that party is confident of forming
the government on its own.
''The contribution made by the party for the growth of Arunachal cannot be compared
with others and we are confident that peoples’ mandate will be in our favour,'' a
visibly confident Tuki said.
Though political pundits here were of the opinion that anti-incumbency factor would
play a crucial role in the prospects of the Congress with many dissident leaders
contesting elections from other platforms, Mr Tuki claimed that it would not be a
''Despite the anti-incumbency factor, our party will emerge as the party with thumping
majority,'' he commented and admitted that the factor was likely to affect the party
in certain Assembly constituencies but it would not hamper the poll prospect.
NCP seems to have become a headache for the Congress party, at least on the surface.
The dilemma has led the Party leadership to clarify at every given opportunity that
though the both parties are allies at centre, it has a separate role in the state.
The rumours that some section of Congress leadership is supporting NCP and AITC have
not helped either!
State Congress Committee Chief Nabum Tuki said that NCP should stop forcing itself
on Congress. Despite our warning not to pile on us, NCP leaders would not stop, he
said. They have been misleading the voters by claiming that Congress and NCP are
together. This is far from the truth; Tuki said while adding that Congress would
form the next government on its own.
Tuki further dubbed the NCP as a party without principle and commitment for the people
of the state.
On the other hand, Indian National Congress today said that BJP has resorted to its
old tactic of fooling the people. President Nabum Tuki while rubbishing the BJP
“claim” that developmental activities were initiated during its short tenure in the
state, said that BJP has always basked at someone else’s efforts. Tuki said that
it is for the people to see who did what for the state while stating that development
in the state picked up after UPA government took charge at the centre. He further
said that Congress is in its own league and citizens are witness to it.
P/Pare issue stern order to prevent booth capture
ITANAGAR, Oct 11: The 2 District Magistrates of Papumpare and Capital complex Bidol
Tayeng and Padmini Singla, IAS respectively along with their 2 SPs have reviewed
the security preparedness for the poll day. To ensure that the polls are not disrupted
by booth capturing or EVM damage, as happened in the last Parliamentary Election
in April, 2009, the 2 District Magistrates have decided to deal with the situation
with firm hands. The 2 District Magistrates have issued order to the Executive Magistrates
to use police force including lathi charge on any element trying to capture booth
or attempt to handle or damage the EVMs on the day of poll.
If situation demands, the 2 District Magistrates would also not hesitate to issue
firing order to avoid any kind of situation like the last Parliamentary Election.
Meanwhile, the District Magistrate, Capital complex the District Magistrate, Papumpare
have issued Executive Orders restricting the movement of private vehicles in the
Capital complex and the adjoining areas on the day of poll. Police check points /
nakas have been put up in number of locations in Capital complex to check attempts
of multiple voting or attempts to disrupt polling process.
All the check posts of the district at Hollongi, Banderdewa, Gumto and Kimin will
also be sealed on the day of poll so that no bogus voters from Assam can cross over
to Papumpare district.
Tirap Elections to be telecast live
Khonsa, Oct 11: Following the successful webcast of live feed from a few polling
stations over internet during the Parliamentary Elections 2009, Tirap is all set
to repeat the telecast during Assembly Elections 2009 as well. And this time on a
much wider scale. The live telecast will be available from 7:00 am onwards on the
day of Polling on the District Website – www.tirap.in
Any user who wants to see the live feed can access this website and people worldwide
can see the conduct of polls in Tirap on a real-time basis. Unlike Lok Sabha Elections,
no additional software needs to be installed by any viewer to have access to this
feed which will be directly available over the web.
The polling stations chosen this time are those that have had problems related to
crowd control in the past. Dwelling on the system’s advantages, DEO-cum-DC Ankur
Garg IAS mentioned that this system not only helps keep a complete check on the poll
proceedings but is also a check on the rowdy elements who are likely to disrupt the
poll proceedings. Whereas miscreants may destroy a stationary video camera installed
at a polling station, live feed will immediately relay the photo of the trouble-maker
over the internet and act as a greater deterrent. Further, the feed can also be seen
by media offices and political parties and this would largely erase all doubts that
one could have on the freeness or fairness of polls.
The use of this innovative technology during Lok Sabha Elections had won appreciation
of CEO Office Itanagar and Election Commission of India – both had seen the live
feed in Itanagar and Delhi respectively on the poll day. Additional measures such
as deploying micro-observers and using videographers are also being deployed in vulnerable
It may be recalled that Tirap is a remote District on the Myanmar Border which has
been declared as a ‘Disturbed Area’ and where the Armed Forces Special Power Act
is in operation. Both the factions of NSCN are engaged in a bloody turf-war here
for the last over 10 years which has led to many casualties. Further, the District
has a very tough and challenging geographical terrain due to which physical monitoring
becomes very difficult. Of the 163 polling stations in the District, 66 have been
identified as critical. Some of these problems will be successfully addressed by
the ‘live-feed’ experiment.
ITANAGAR, Oct 11: These days, otherwise quite Menchuka-Tato constituency is bustling
with activities, thanks to election. One of the most beautiful places in the state,
many pockets in the constituency is still inaccessible. However the candidates have
put in all possible efforts to ensure that they reach the people before the d day.
The sheer spread of geographical area is a challenge in itself. There are 36 polling
stations in Mechuka Assembly Constituency spread across four administrative circles
of Mechuka, Monigong, Tato and Pidi. The constituency is a mixed bag of many tribes.
Apart from Membas which are in a mojority, Bokars, Ramos and Pailibos, there is a
considerable Tagin population as well.
Though there are four candidates in the fray, the main contest is between INC’s Pasang
Dorjee Sona and NCP’s Tsering Naksang. Bote Yuto (PPA) and Tako Puning (AITC) are
the other two candidates.
A Congress choice for the constituency Pasang Dorjee Sona, is a lawyer and a keen
photographer. A product of Delhi university he is a member, Task Force, Ministry
of Food Processing, govt of India.
Good delivery of Public delivery system is one of the priorities of the young leader
who started his career with the NSUI. Health, education, road and Air connectivity
and tourism promotion are other in the priority list.
Pasang says that if necessary infrastructure is put in place, Menchuka would be an
international tourist’s destination.
Tsering Naksang quit his government position as district research officer to stand
for the election. A Delhi School of Economics product, Naksang has been involved
in social work and student politics since school days. My aim is to bring about a
success story of all round progress, peace and prosperity in the thitherto neglected
and backward border subdivision of Mechukha, he says.
The people would decide whom they want to send as their representative. Nevertheless,
not only the people of the constituency but others as well would keep a watch what
efforts the elected representatives would put to ensure that Menchuka takes its
rightful place in the world.
Allegation politically motivated: BJP
ITANAGAR, Oct 11: Reacting the news report that workers of state BJP president
attacked somer non-tribal tea garden workers in Pasighat West constituency yesterday,
the BJP today said that the allegations are unfounded, fabricated, politically
motivated and frustrated move by the Congress.
Condemning the allegations, the party said that rather several BJP workers and party
candidates were attacked and attempted kidnap by the Congress leaders in several
parts of the state for which the party had sought strong security arrangement.
The Congress by just throwing false allegation on the BJP candidate and state BJP
president, Dr. Tangor Tapak can not hide the fact of several hundreds of illegal
and bogus voters who were enrolled as the tea garden workers, the party said.
With the campaigning ends this evening the BJP is confident of winning in 13 seats,
the Party said and appealed the people of Arunachal Pradesh to exercise their adult
franchise without any fear.
Polling personnel airdropped!
SEPPA, Oct 11: The polling personnel, security men, videographers and micro observers
for Bameng, Lada, Chayang Tajo and Sawa assembly constituencies in East Kameng district
were airlifted to their assigned polling stations by Pawan Hans helicopter today.
The elections process in Seppa is being carried out peacefully under the supervision
of DEO Pige Ligu. District administration officials and security personnel are patrolling
the streets in order to thwart any untoward incident. Movement of private vehicles,
barring the political candidates’ vehicles and of those with plying permits will
be prohibited on the poll day. (DIPRO)
Voting goes live in Bomdila
BOMDILA- Oct 11: Moving in tandem with the changing times, the District Election
Office have set the mechanism rolling for live coverage of voting, incidentally,
in 13 polling stations on 13th in the district. Undoubtedly, this would facilitate
monitoring of the activities going around the concerned polling stations from the
Control Room set up at Deputy Commissioner’s office. The live coverage would be accessible
through Yahoo messenger at dirang HDEW19, dirang HDWW20, Yewang21, Rupatowneastwing,
Rupa-townww28, Rupavillage29, Tengamarket3, Singchung4, Ubhalukpong38, Upper-bhalukpong38a,
lower-bhalukpong39, lower-bhalukpong39a and at Dahung7 with the password-election
This live coverage of voting process in the selected polling stations is another
step forward in ensuring that
latest technology find place in the district. The voting process in the selected
locations will be observed in the Control Room to ensure that these selected locations
are under the direct supervision of the District Election Office. These locations
have been selected on the basis of broadband connectivity available at these places
and also to serve as a deterrent for any element who wants to disrupt the poll activity
in any manner. The NIC office Bomdila, is burning the midnight oil to ensure that
everything goes well on 13th in respect of the live coverage of voting.
Arrangements have also been made to install Closed Circuit Television with night
vision facility at the entrance of the Strong room where the Electronic voting Machines
and Non-EVM materials would be kept.
The use of webcams for the live coverage of counting during the last Parliamentary
Elections in the district was very successful and widely appreciated. The district
has its own official website ‘westkameng.nic.in’ and all details / matters related
to the Assembly Elections 2009 in the district can be accessed in the profile, titled-Election.
The District Election machinery is leaving no stone unturned to ensure voters turnout
and to let them exercise their Adult Franchise and choose their representative, who
would work for the all-round development of their area.
AITC candidate Laeta Umbrey hits back
ROING, Oct 11: Sitting MLA and candidate of All India Trinamool Congress (AITC),
Laeta Umbrey from Roing constituency on Sunday hit back at Congress and alleged that
under the leadership of former Chief Minister and Rajya Sabha MP, Mukut Mithi the
township and public have largely failed to get actual benefit despite him occupying
top portfolios in various disciplines.
Addressing the last election rally, he told gathered crowd that crucial local issues
were ignored during the reign of Mithi.
He assured public that as a local MLA his prime prerogative will be to manage the
available resources and utilize development funds efficiently.
He further told that he always believed in staying back in his own constituency to
oversee development activities rather than holding up at Itanagar or in Delhi. During
the period of my tenure I have done what I had committed to public and if elected
I will pursue the remaining work left, promised Umbrey.
He added that if elected in the next five year, he could give top priority to peace
& development, opening of new college, streamlining of the PDS, regularization of
casual workers, housing facility to poor villagers, promotion of tourism and encouragement
of games & sport
Young ZPM Anjiti Menjo from Iduli block in his short speech said that promise made
by national leaders of Congress like V Narayanswami and Vincent Pala, during their
visit to town would not solve the problem of town. He further went on to add that
local problems can only be understood by grassroots leader like Umbrey and is hopeful
that he brings in more development to the area. He appealed to the public to elect
right candidate for the all around development, peace and tranquility of the township.
Empty show-rooms, courtesy elections
ITANAGAR, Oct.10: Even before the festive season arrived, the vehicle showrooms across
the state are witnessing frantic sale activity ever since elections fever started
gripping the entire state. While election officials may be claiming to strictly imposed
model code of conduct, there is no denying that candidates have been bestowing gifts
to the prospective voters to woo them to their side. Testimony to this can be drawn
from gradual emptying of vehicles, especially in two wheeler segment from showroom
across the capital complex.
While the four wheeler segment has not witnessed any drastic high in sales, it is
the two wheeler section which has seen heavy sale in the last few days coinciding
with rise in political heat. Mr Suraj Kumar Nag, General Manager, with a Yamaha
showroom in capital, says, “I do agree that since the month of September sales have
manifold in our showroom. In this month only we have till now sold more than 30 bikes
and whole October month is left. So, obviously election had some effect in our sale.”
Further proof of bikes sale skyrocketing can be witness from the closing of two brand
showroom as they were running out of stock. While officially they have given some
different reason for closing their shutter, many believe that they went out of stock
as demand increased in the last few days. While bike dealers are laughing all the
way to bank, same cannot be said for four wheeler shops. “For us election has not
brought much change and as such we usually witness heavy demand through out the year,”
says Mr Pranab Kumar Patowary of Maruti Suzuki outlet.
An official from TATA MOTORS informs that initially there was increase in the number
of inquires but gradually it waned down as they follow strict guideline in selling
vehicles to the new buyer.
With just few days more left for voting one should not be amused if sales of vehicles
from all section increase in coming days. It does not matter from which end money
are flowing in as on rare occasion that public get chance to get back at politicians
with their demand.
As of now, nobody is complaining if they are offered gifts and for many people this
is the beginning of early festive Diwali season.
Democracy and we
Nature has its own way of evolution, so as the society and the way of life. We can
not bring forceful changes in society nor do we expect miracle for blissful society.
And hopefully, the happenings in our largest democracy are also going with the time.
The presence of All India Trinamool Congress (TMC), Nationalist Congress Party (NCP),
revived People’s Party of Arunachal (PPA), Janata Dal (U), besides the BJP, ideological
and traditional rival of the INC has given new direction to this years’ Assembly
election campaign. The people of state have been lucky enough to get glimpse of leaders
which include number of union ministers including Prime Minister of India and taste
the sermons of democracy at least this election time.
May be it is the first and last chance for poor villagers in interior areas who barely
can afford to visit Capital Complex to get back at politicians with their demands.
This ofcourse happens once in five years.
Interestingly, a voter through the open letter to this daily, refused to share his
time with the politicians who were making us to believe that they were striving hard
to preserve the sanctity of democracy in election time.
He was almost sure that the agenda inscripted in the party manifestoes are only to
lure voters; nothing more, nothing less.
Of course, if we believe the unconfirmed complaints of the voters, sporadic violence
in many parts of the state has become a regular feature of this election and offering
of ‘gift’ plays an important role in this different kind of festival. It is another
thing that except the political parties, even intellectual groups and NGOs prefer
to keep mum and close their eyes. Responsibility and honesty find little space to
Some observers feel that weather has dampened the spirit of the Congress workers
as their role model and youth icon Rahul Gandhi and AICC chief Sonia Gandhi could
not make it to Arunachal to campaign. But the Congress leaders in the state have
some reasons to feel good, as they got a chance to sing the chorus “PM package” when
PM himself came to campaign in front of thousands of people.
BJP which derives its strength from their ideology and believes in strong ‘cultural
nationalism’, also did not lose its heart after former Lokh Sabha MP and bright young
leader of state Kiren Rijiju deserted the party and joined INC just before the commencing
of assembly election. The party could not field as many candidates as it did in last
assembly election, but is still hopeful of playing a meaningful role and bringing
a change in political dynamism.
NCP and new entrant TMC which are also in the INC list of opportunists have relatively
shown a strong presence with rigorous campaign as many national leaders poured into
the state. On the other hand, PPA with its ideology of strong regionalism has also
left no stone unturned to tighten its belt and to snatch some assembly seats. Besides
these, JD (U) also strived hard to at least make a beginning in this tribal state.
As usual, allegation and counter allegations are making headlines all over. Though
people have nothing to do with mudslinging of political parties, it makes sense for
political parties and their loyalists. After all, every vote counts.
We as voters are in the threshold of maturing democracy. Let us hope for new dawn
with vibrant and charismatic leaders in the helm of affairs.
Elect spiritual people
On the eve of voting in Arunachal Pradesh, spiritual guru and founder of Art of Living
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar reveals his take how our elected representatives should be.
The goal of politics is to bring good governance and increase material, emotional
and physical comfort of people. Similarly, the aim of spirituality is to boost morality
and human values. Both politics and spirituality need to go hand in hand.
For good governance, spirituality is necessary. Only spirituality can invoke commitment,
care and confidence. Spiritual people live the values, which are absolutely essential
for those in governance. A leader has to be a samadarshi, one who sees everyone as
being equal; satyadarshi, who moves with the Truth; paradarshi, who is transparent
in action; doordarshi, being broad-minded and a visionary; and priyadarshi, embodying
love and compassion.
Ideally, one fights an election to serve the people, not to take pleasure in power.
When a seat of power is used for pleasure or prestige rather than a means to serve,
the whole society becomes infested with corruption, lacks growth, and undergoes a
moral degradation. Fear and insecurity grip the society and paralyse the humanness.
Often you hear ministers threatening to resign if they don’t get their way. It is
foolish to take pride in resigning from one’s post of responsibility as though one
is doing a sacrifice. Ministership is not a luxury which you can take pride in renouncing.
Similarly conferring a ministerial post on someone is demanding their best service,
not conferring a reward.
Most political leaders lack education in true service. Few are above the boundaries
of race, religion and nationality. Being stuck, they do harm to themselves and others.
Like any other profession we need to have a system for educating politicians. A certain
level of social education and maturity is needed to shoulder responsibility. Every
minister must be able to ignore the sycophants around him or her and learn to listen
to their own inner voice, their own divine guidance, what they innately know to be
right and wrong.
We have to get out of the politics of hate and mistrust. True politics is to care
for all people and not to hate a section of the society on the basis of caste, religion,
ideology, or language. When service for the people become the main aim of politics
and not power or pleasure, any country will develop much faster as everyone will
be competing to serve better instead of for personal gains. Unfortunately that has
not always been the case.
My heart aches when I see the distrust and hatred among the people and their leaders.
Today when parties come together, they do so because of common enemies rather than
common goals. Much time is wasted in mud-slinging and undoing what the other has
done. Opposite parties must work together for the progress of the country. Satyuga
(golden period) will be when opposing parties work towards one goal - making the
poor self confident, the rich a generous giver, the educated not crooked, and the
innocent not foolish.
The need of the hour is a prejudice-free political system. Consensus can emerge only
when politicians learn to drop prejudices of religion, caste and gender. To be able
to drop prejudices, politicians need to widen their sense of belongingness. This
can happen only when they are free from stress and gain a spiritual perspective.
Spirituality makes people honest and committed and this is necessary to create a
corruption and crime-free society. When spirituality and politics don't coexist,
then you have corrupt politicians and pseudo-religious leaders. At a time when society
is divided on the lines of political ideologies and religions and moral values are
denigrating, spirituality can unite the hearts and minds of our people. Today, both
religion and politics need reform. Religion has to become more spiritual to allow
freedom of worship and broader to encompass all the wisdom in the world and politicians
have to become more righteous and spiritual.

NCP regrets wrong information
ITANAGAR, Oct 1I: The Nationalist Congress Party(NCP) today clarified that only
Toni Ribu, INC president of Old Deka village had actually joined NCP along with his
supporters. The INC panchayats have not actually joined NCP as reported in NCP
press release which was published on Oct 10 last.
Regretting the ‘inadvertent mistake’, the party said that it occurred due to communication
gap between the village level workers and district level team. The fault was on our
part, the NCP said.
Environment V/s Development
By Ipra Mekola
Activism of environment & wild life protection are always considered to be a job
of social workers, sporting Shabanam bag and beard. Developmental agencies never
take environment protection as inclusive to development. “Addressing environment
issues is somebody’s job. We are for development” say the people with contracts of
construction of buildings and roads. Sometimes even organisations like BRO and Govt.
agencies have such views.
It is the need of the hour to understand our close association with nature. Can we
balance both the balance of nature and the progress of human race? Nobody can exist
disassociated from nature. The selfish attitude of ours creates the wall of separation
between humans and nature. Nature will withdraw all her blessings and turn against
man. Unimaginable will be nature’s reaction, if we continue to be adamant for the
development “exclusive of concerns for the nature & wild life”.
It will be appropriate to site one such case (of locking horn) now going on at Mayodiya
in Lower Dibang Valley. Mayodiya, is a growing tourist hotspot, which falls under
Mehao Wild Life sanctuary and where during winter, one can even find red Pandas apart
from Mishmi Takins and black bears. The BRO was considering construction of additional
resting structures at Mayodiya. Being a Member of State Advisory Committee of Wild
Life, I raised issues related to massive man made changes to the wild life habitat.
The issue was discussed in long meetings with officials of BRO and district administration
and the work was halted.
However, now BRO going to extreme, purposefully delaying the maintenance of present
road, (the only road leading to Anini via Mayodiya) saying that environmentalists
This is the time and place where it is possible to chart a new path in economic development
avoiding the ecological devastation. Nature does not wait for anybody for our deeds
to correct, nor does it deviate from its own law “the law of nature”. Let’s not forget
the nature, amidst all our diverse views.
In our country, each time whenever the development like tourist complex, road broadening,
housing complex, business establishments, factories, IT parks, marketing complexes
etc. are thought, environment is always sidelined. At the very outset, the first
and foremost casualty is the trees on way, without a thought of relocating or substitute
planting. And even if it is done (for the sake of shouting environmentalists), many
a times it is just names’ sake. Here are some of the examples, what we lost;
Since 2005, in Delhi 38,000 trees have been cut in the capital by MCD, NDMC, DDA,
the Public Works Department and the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) for various
The Northern Railway has recently given permission to cut 3,000 trees to facilitate
the expansion of Anand Vihar Railway Station.
In Mumbai suburbs, at least 100 trees around the Powai Lake have been sacrificed
for a jogging track.
As part of a Bangalore road-widening project, 91 roads leading to the new Bengaluru
International Airport have lost up to 30,000 trees.
The Uttar Pradesh Government has come up with “environmental” reasons for felling
6,000 old trees and converting existing local parks into a BSP statue complex. The
State claimed grandiosely in an affidavit that “60,000 trees will be planted in and
around the park.”
The Forest Department in Punjab has said 1.11 lakh trees in the State would be cut
under phase V of the National Highway Development Programme (NHDP) in four districts,
including Patiala, Fatehgarh Sahib, Ludhiana and Jalandhar.
(Compiled from various news sources)
We take plantation for granted, not knowing that such magnificent trees cannot be
created overnight and take decades of hard work, care and patience. There is no
surprise that in Arunachal, the Supreme Court imposed a blanket ban on all timber
mills taking into account the rampant cutting of trees for more than two decades.
When we woke up, Arunachal had already lost many tree species.
We are not only cutting the trees but also cutting very survival and dependence of
various species, birds, animals, reptiles, ants, earthworms, insects and.....the
list is very long. Even a dead log is full of live activities and a home of many
species. In UK, US and Australia, there are specialists to save the trees. They are
called “Tree Surgeons”. The people there have developed a lot of environment sensitivity
and treat the trees as human beings.
We definitely lack this sensitivity, the vision, management skills and governance.
By building tourist complexes in the midst of wild life sanctuaries, in the guise
of development, we forget, we remove the wildlife from the wild, promote man-animal
conflict and pave the way for poaching and to add to this, a great loss of a host
of other species of flora and fauna. The loss is constant with each single specimen
pushing the dreaded word - “extinction”.
Development can be achieved with environment sensitivity, we call it Holistic development.
The BRO needs to consider the environment protection issues raised are not against
the development but to trigger thoughtful thinking on Holistic development. Stoppage
of maintenance work of existing road has nothing to do with issues raised for new
construction in the area. Hope, the concerned authorities will wake up before the
people and nature lose their patience.
While going for the development in such places, it is necessary to take into account
the busy visitor’s traffic, unrestricted vehicular movement, unimaginable amount
of garbage and plastic dumping by visitors and easy access to wild life without the
presence of law enforcement agency on spot. If not, in the name of development, what
we will be called “protectors or predators” of wild life and environment?
