PM raises stapled visa issue with China
BEIJING, Oct 23: India today objected to the issue of stapled visas by China to residents
of some states over whose parts Beijing has laid claim to, even as Prime Minister
Manmohan Singh pledged his commitment to visa simplification to facilitate travel
of Chinese nationals.
The issue of stapled visas to two Indian women archers from Arunachal Pradesh by
the Chinese Embassy in Delhi recently was raised during the discussions between Prime
Minister Singh and Premier Li Keqiang at the Great Hall of the People here.
Singh told the media after his talks that "I conveyed to Premier Li our commitment
to visa simplification to facilitate travel of Chinese nationals to India and expressed
the hope that China will also facilitate such exchanges."
Ahead of the visit, there were indications that an agreement on a liberalised visa
regime was close to being signed between the countries.
But upset over the issue of stapled visa to Arunachal Pradesh residents, India decided
to defer the issue in a virtual tit-for-tat.
India and China inked a comprehensive pact which commits them not to use military
capability to attack each other today.
Under a Border Defence Cooperation Agreement (BDCA) signed after extensive talks
between Singh and his Chinese counterpart Li here, the two neighbours also agreed
not to tail each other's patrol along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) which has
witnessed numerous incursions by Chinese troops at Depsang Valley in Ladakh.
The BDCA facilitates the establishment of a hotline between the military headquarters
of the two countries and meeting sites for border personnel in all sectors of the
In all, nine agreements, including the BDCA, were signed after restricted and delegation-level
India and China also signed a new agreement to strengthen cooperation on trans-border
rivers that is aimed at allaying India's concerns over new dams on the Brahmaputra
and facilitating the exchange of flood data.
Under the new agreement, Chinese side agreed to provide more flood data of Brahmaputra
from May to October instead of June to October in the previous agreements river water
agreements in 2008 and 2010.
India has been expressing concerns over China's plans to construct more dams which
New Delhi fears could restrict the flows of the Himalayan river flowing from Tibet.
China for its parts assured India that its dams are run of the river projects not
designed to hold water.
The side also signed agreements to strengthen cultural exchange programme, Cooperation
in Road Transport and Highways, Chinese power equipment service centres in India
and agreements to establishing sister city relationships between Delhi-Beijing and
Bangalore and Chengdu and Kolkata and Kunming. PTI
It seems like there is nobody in Arunachal government who read daily newspaper that's
why we have to repeat same thing again and again. This letter may irritate the concern
department but it will continue until or unless frustration of many is relieved.
We only want different govt. department to release the pending faith of many unemployed
youth. At the top of the list, PWD department of AP is determined to create a record
by delaying their UDC/LDC written result. I don't know what they are doing with our
papers? But somewhere it also smells like department may be really interested for
2014 election in other word "BRIBERY ". In another case APP is showing laziness in
declaring the result of lady constable which is really embarrassing. If these exams
were organized in systematic which they claim then who is accountable for delay in
declaring result? In this regard I request the concern ministers to take necessary
actions. Do not play with the emotions of unemployed. I also request concern candidates
to take some initiatives. Because by remaining silent we will get nothing.
Tezu witnessing leadership crisis
With all humility, we the undersigned would like to appraise you with regards to
recent unfortunate incident that took place on the night of 27th September 2013 at
Tezu Township area which had shocked the peace loving populace of the Tezu in particular
and Mishmi Community in general.
We do not want to describe / narrate about that unfortunate incident in details as
it has already been flashed in all the leading newspapers of our state. We believe
that everyone have all the information and news by now. But being the responsible
and dedicated party men, it is our moral duty and responsibility to apprise people
about the events. If we fail to apprise, then we as a party member defy ourselves
from the constitution of our- party which will be against the discipline and principle
of the party line.
The record of our present MLA in his obnoxious activities is well known from quite
a long time until it came to lime light in various news media’s. It's very unfortunate
that person of his stature is, indulging in such criminal and anti-social activities.
In fact it was beyond our belief when we were told by some of our close friends about
his involvement. We were not convinced on this hearsay until we visited the houses
of the victims and heard the horror and terrifying story narrated by them and, we
also have seen the damaged houses and properties through our own eyes, that was carried
out by Mr. Karikho Kri, MLA cum Parliamentary Secretary (PHED and WS).
The recent involvement of our local MLA has brought bad reputation to our party INC.
By these obnoxious activities of his, our strong party organization is weakening
day after day which is of great concern for the Party and a threat to his candidature.
In earlier occasion too before this incident, he has already earned bad reputation
by indulging in all sorts of illegal and unlawful activities which are still fresh
in the minds of populace of Tezu and the audacious and vicious attack on the houses
of the student leaders of All Mishmi Students Union (AMSU) on the night of 27th September
2013 has proved to be the edge of anger for the public.
Due to unlawful activities of our leader, the majority of our party members including
us, are in great bewilder whether to work under his leadership or to demand for alternative
leadership in our constituency. Seeing the present atmosphere, we have tried to apprise

How long we will have to wait?
Through the esteemed column of your daily, we would like to place our views to our
PWD, Minister and head of department PWD, Capital Circle regarding delay in declaring
written examination results for the post of UDC/LDC. The said exam for UDC was conducted
on 27th to 28th April 2013 and for LDC on 1st June 2013. Seven months has passed
but still there is no any news regarding declaration of results.
All the candidates are eagerly waiting to hear their result. Whether pass or fail,
the candidates are ready to accept the outcome of results but it should be declared
first. By delaying the declaration of result PWD Department is compelling the candidates
to file RTI against them and the write against them in various local newspapers.
Through this letter we want to ask the PWD Minister and Head of Department that when
they will declare results. How long we will have to wait for the written examination
result? And who will bear our expenses on paper work at the time of submission of

India needs to understand China’s emotion
China on Tuesday blamed Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama and his supporters for
creating border problems between India and China. In a white paper issued just before
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh landed in Beijing for three-day visit, China alleged
that after the failure of their armed rebellion in 1959, Dalai Lama and his supporters
fled abroad and began to harass China's borders for years.
The paper said the Tibetan leader's main purpose is to "overthrow the socialist
system and the system of regional ethnic autonomy that is practiced in Tibet''. It
added he wants "to rock the systemic foundations that have ensured the development
and progress of Tibet''. This bold Chinese stand has confirm the earlier fear expressed
by section of defense think thank that Beijing carries out incursion activities along
LAC only to show their displeasure against India for giving shelter to Tibetan spiritual
leader. If China really wanted to capture Arunachal Pradesh, they would have never
accepted cease fire agreement in 1962 when Chinese were in advantage having run over
Indian army at Tawang and Kibitho sector. For a harmonious border, China expects
India to curb down anti-Beijing activities by Dalai Lama and his supporters. It’s
time India also understands the sentiment of China and avoids hurting their emotion.
The Tibetan refugees living in India are enjoying enormous freedom. However they
should not be allowed to carry out any activities which may hurt the relation between
