Congress hopeful of victory in 3 poll-going states
New Delhi, Sept 14: The Congress today said it would win the forthcoming Assembly
elections in Maharashtra, Haryana and Arunachal Pradesh on the strength of the good
governance provided by the incumbent governments of the party.
"The choice of the electorate in the three states is stark and clear," AICC Spokesman
Abishek Manu Singhvi told mediapersons, pointing out that there was indeed a pro-incumbency
factor in all the three states.
"We have given good governance at all levels," he said.
In this context, he claimed that the special Unique Selling Proposition of the Congress
in the three states was its approach of inclusive governance and growth oriented
and non-divisive approach.
During the Congress-led rule in Maharashtra, the state had achieved the rare distinction
of retaining high per capita income which is higher than the national average.
Citing the state's achievement in education and literacy, Dr Singhvi said the government's
rural electrification programme was a success story.
"The choice of the people of Maharashtra is stark - one between the parametres of
a good governance and the other of the divisiveness of the parties which lived in
middle and stone ages, whether it is BJP or Shiv Sena," he added.
On the party's poll prospects in Haryana, he said the Congress had turned the state
into one with the second highest per capita.
"In a sense, it is Bangalore of the North," he said about Haryana, adding it was
the third largest exporter of software.
Dr Singhvi said the Congress government at the Centre had announced one of the largest
packages to Arunachal Pradesh to strengthen and augment the border areas. UNI
ITANAGAR: Reserve Bank of India is in its 75th year of existence and is in the process
of spreading awareness among common citizens about banking habit and banking facilities.

received from Q J Naqvi Deputy General Manager, Reserve Bank of India.
Relief for victims
ITANAGAR: Naharlagun-Nirjuli Kargu Gamgi management committee handed over a sum of
Rs. 15,000.00 towards the fire victims of Nyigam village, Basar, through Additional
Deputy Commissioner, Basar.
Union calls for clean politics
ITANAGAR: Arunachal Youth Democratic Forum called on the citizens not to be lured
by money during the electioneering process while urging the leaders to avoid monetized
politics. It said that deserving candidates should be sent to the Legislative assembly.
Teachers reiterate demands
ITANAGAR: Upper Subansiri CoSAAP unit and Arunachal teachers Association in a letter
to the Chief Electoral Officer reiterated that teachers should not be deployed for
duties during the forthcoming legislative assembly election. It said that Sept-Oct
is cruicial time peak academic process. If teachers are engaged in non academic duties,
this could adversely affect the teaching learning process, it stated.
The promise of Women's Reservation Bill in 100 days was clearly a hoax played by
the INC and its allies.
Far from executing the bill within the promised time frame, the INC and its allies
have not even tabled the bill.
The citizens had some hope that women would be given preferences as the Congress
is headed by a woman. This is the same party that gave us a woman president and a
Speaker. But this looks just symbolic gifts from the party.
Many instances have shown that INC does not actually believe in promoting women leadership.
In the recent Lok Sabha elections, out of the 443 candidates declared by the Congress,
the party pitched only 40 women candidates.
And for the coming assembly election of our state, less said that better. INC has
announced only two women as its candidates in the first list of 56 candidates. Of
the four remaining seats, there is only one woman contender.
In the state like ours where people are extremely loyal to ruling Government, INC
shouldn’t have had much difficulty in implementing policies and ideas they say they
Let us wait and watch what women voters got to say in the coming assembly election.
An appeal for change
A change we need, a change we crave for, a change that was shown to us by some leaders
quite some time ago, a change that would mould the future of every Arunachalee in
days to come, a change that come only through the youth of the state, a change which
every youth should realize that they are the future torch bearer of the society.
If they realize this, they are to come out of the shadow to show the paths and lead
We are tired of the fact, the society is now stranded and the politics is going on
as usual. Though the change has already started, but in minute and too narrow to
The kind of change we crave for will come if the youth of the state are ready to
take the charge, ready to motivate, guide the masses.
We are leaving the destiny of the Capital Complex in the hands of the youths to speed
up the process of change, so that we can have a better capital and a better Arunachal.

The news item published in your esteemed daily on Sept 8 last regarding prohibitory
order U/S 144 CrPC in Hapoli township by district magistrate following a group clashes
between the supporters of two political parties was false and fabricated. In fact
it was clash between the members of 32KM NLCPR Contractors Association, Ziro and
the supporters of a prominent political leader Padi Richo for objection to LOC demand
as well as the payment of the contractors. The Association requests the innocent
peace loving people not to be misguided.
The Association in a meeting held on Sept 6 had adopted many important resolutions
and done accordingly. All contractors resolved to remain unified till payment/completion
of above project.
