Govt plan to improve quality education
in rural areas
ITANAGAR, Sept 5: “My government is planning to come out with a policy to improve
the quality of education in the rural areas so that the students coming from far
flung schools could compete and pass out the CBSE board examinations with flying
colours”, said Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu today.
He was addressing a mammoth gathering at Banquet Hall here as chief guest on the
occasion of Teachers’ Day celebration.
While consolidating the role of teachers in shaping the society, Khandu said that
the students follow what a teacher tries to teach them. “If a teacher maintains outmost
sincerity and devotional to duties, the students follow the same line”, the chief
“No nation can develop its resources to fullness unless its citizen is educated.
It is the education that opens the mind and enhances the mental development which
breeds civilization and leads the path of progress and prosperity”, Khandu said while
urging the teachers to impart the education putting their heart in it.
Khandu appealed the teaching fraternity to include such social importance topics
in their school curriculum activities like preservation of wild life, HIV/AIDS, drug
menace etc. in order to educate the children in such alarming issues. Reiterating
that education had been a top priority sector for his government, Khandu appreciated
the steps taken up by the education minister Bosiram Siram in improving the standard
and quality of education in the state. He further urged upon all to put hands together
to improve the literacy rate of the state and make it par to the highest literate
states like Kerala and Mizoram.
Dwelling in length on the initiatives of his government especially on education sector,
Khandu made mention on Flagship programme of Central Government and its effective
implementation in the state.
He congratulated the teachers who were recognized for their meritorious job and appealed
the teaching fraternity to follow the suit.
30 teachers from all over the state were conferred with state Teachers’ Award for
their meritorious service in state and for education by the chief guest on the day.
Speaking as guest of honour Education Minister Bosiram Siram termed the students
as a bank and teachers the depositors of most precious treasure- knowledge.
He mentioned about National Foundation for Teachers Welfare (NFTW), which undertakes
a voluntary campaign for collection of funds on this day every year. He further disclosed
that an amount of Rs. 83 Crores (aprox). has been contributed till date which would
be utilized for providing financial assistance for construction of Shikshak Sadan,
financial support for education of school teachers’ children, gratuitous relief to
the teachers in case of serious accident and teachers health insurance etc.
But Siram lamented that not a single financial assistance was availed by our state
despite the fact that the NFTW was constituted way back in the year 1962. He however
revealed that a state working committee of NFTW would soon be constituted so as to
ensure that the benefits under NFTW could be given to teachers in the hour of need.
He also informed the house about enactment of Arunachal Pradesh Education Act, Arunachal
Pradesh Higher education Act and Arunachal Pradesh Technical Education Act. These
efforts will certainly serve the noble purpose for planned and systematic development
of Educational Institution in the state, Siram emphatically said.

Govt announces welfare measures for working class
ITANAGAR, Sept 5: The State Cabinet has given its seal of approval on several welfare
measures worked out for the working class as recommended by a govt-constituted Committee.
Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu informed the house on the first day of three day Legislative
session that from now on, there would be two categories of casual/ contingency employees—skilled
and un-skilled and the category semi-skilled would be merged with the skilled ones.
Accordingly, the wages structure of the contingency employees has been upgraded:
the un-skilled and skilled employees serving from 0-5 years will get monthly wages
of Rs 3,500 and Rs 3,800 respectively, likewise employees working for 6-10 years
will get Rs 4,000 (un-skilled) and Rs 4,300 (skilled), 11-15 years- Rs 5,000
(un-skilled) and Rs 5,300 (skilled) and beyond 15 years - Rs 6,000 (un-skilled) and
Rs 6,300 (skilled), including Rs 250 per month as medical allowance for each category.
The same wages structure should apply to the Auxiliary Labour Corps (ALCs) in the

allowance) of Rs 500 per month will be provided to the contingency/ casual staff
working in Area II (difficult areas).
The total annual financial liability of the above decisions would be Rs 80 crore
(approx). For the current financial year, assuming that the recommendations are adopted
from 1st October 2010, the liability would be about Rs 40 crore, divulged the CM.
He further said the recruitment rules for the group ‘D’ posts like peons, sweepers
etc and for work charged (W/C) employees in case of works departments should be amended
to reserve atleast 25% seats by promotion from contingency employees who have completed
20 years of service, after a qualification test.

should be only with the prior approval of the Chief Secretary and after obtaining
no objection from Finance Deptt (for Non-Plan category) and Planning Department (for

Lower Siang projects debate continues
ITANAGAR, Sept 5: Expressing doubt over the selection process of participants in
the proposed official meeting on Lower Siang Hydro Electrict project at Itanagar
on Sept 7, Mebo Area Bachao Committee said that selection was done by the East Siang
deputy commissioner and a few delegates selected by Govt cannot be true representatives
of the project affected people.
The committee in is emergency meeting held at Pasighat yesterday nullified and rejected
the proposed meeting and also appealed the MLAs of project affected area in general
and Mebo MLA in particular to abstain from participating in it.
The committee unanimously condemned the Govt attitude towards the anti-dam people.
Instead of coming up with convincing points, they are in hurry in declaring anti-dam
people as anti-development, the committee said.
Meanwhile, expressing unaware of any conspiracy or political implication in the
proposed official meeting on Sept 7, Abor Hills People’s Forum has said that it
will represent the feedback of people of Siang belt and use the meeting as platform
to enquire about the details about the project including pre-feasibility report,
geological study and development initiatives etc.
If the project is feasible after preliminary investigation, the Forum will endorse
the project, said a release. The Forum will look into the fact that the project commence
only after the effected people both upstream and downstream are compensated and their
interested are looked into.
The Forum said, it will shoulder the responsibility even if it is a non-descript
as the people of Siang deserve a better tomorrow.
Lower Siang Project Affected Welfare Society while welcoming the meeting called by
the Chief Minister said that AdiSU should have registered its protest when the DC
has called a meeting in August for selection of delegates. The Society said that
representatives will attend the meeting.
Students need to exhibit political skills
ITANAGAR, Sept 5: With new academic session starting, colleges across the state will
witness frenzy activities to elect new student bodies.
Positions like general secretary, assistant general secretary and numerous others
posts will be vied by many students. Often it is said that student politics is the
first step towards entering the world of politics. Some of the famous universities
of world like Oxford, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Osmania University, Delhi University
and many more are considered to be centre of student political activism.
They have witnessed many famous students movement in their illustrious history. Many
of the present day politicians are product of these universities.
Even the 1989 infamous Tiananmen Square protest saw participation of larger number
of students from Beijing University. During my days at Delhi, I had opportunities
to interact with student union leaders of Jawahar Lal Nehru University (JNU) and
Delhi University (DU). In these two universities, all the major political party’s
student wing is very active. They vigorously oppose each other’s political ideology
in public and always indulge in heated campaign inside university campus.
Despite their political differences, like seasoned politicians, they do respect each
other’s political principles. There is a sense of maturity in the way they conduct
themselves and many attribute this to their political training gained by being affiliated
with one particular party. Some of the politicians like Sitaram Yechury, Prakash
Karat are product of JNU and leaders like Arun Jaitly, Kapil Sibal are from DU school
of political education.
In Arunachal majority of current politicians has come through rank of student bodies
like All Arunachal Pradesh Student Union (AAPSU), All Nyishi Students Union (ANSU)
and from numerous tribe and district based student bodies. However there is a lack
of proper political activity in all the colleges of state and also at Rajiv Gandhi
University (RGU). There is a need to channelize and bring the student bodies under
certain forum where they can exhibit their political skills in true sense. Often
we say students are the future of country and if we want to groom future politicians,
then colleges and universities is the best place to do so.
There is certain lacuna in present system of student union activism in Arunachal.
Most of the present student bodies are being used as puppet by few select politicians.
There is an urgent need to change this trend. Certain professionalism need to be
inculcated to student unions. Also our colleges and university, besides providing
academic education, should encouraged students to take part in other curricular activities.
Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU), situated at Rono Hill Doimukh, apart from being education
hub should also become centre of political activism. Being the highest intellectual
group of state, people expect RGU students to have a say in every matter which can
change the fate of this state. There should be extensive political debates at university
level on various issues and our authorities should also offer them all helping hands.
Being the future citizen of this state, everybody look forward to student communities
to be more vocal on those subjects which directly or indirectly can affect their
It is the duty of student communities to enlighten the poor and uneducated public
of this underdeveloped state about all the important subjects. For example at present
there is huge debate going in state regarding dams. Why can’t student group organize
debate on such issue?
History speaks that whenever student community has intervened in any burning issues,
a new chapter is always written. Time has arrived for our students to be more vocal
on all issues and if they keep silent now, may be one day they have to pay heavy
price for their silence.
