In a separate message for Ganesh Chaturthi, the Governor expressed the hope that the celebration, which marks the birth of Lord Ganesh, would spread wisdom and usher in prosperity and good fortune in the society.
‘May the auspicious occasion also instill noble values and righteousness in all,’ Gen Singh wished.

He expressed that it is indeed fulfilling to see that initiatives like organization of the traditional festivals like Solung are contributing in a significant manner towards achieving this objective.
“While extending my heartiest greetings to the Adi community and all other communities on the festive occasion of Solung, I personally am very encouraged to see that the vibrant cultural practices of our people continues to get our patronage.

After a decade of anxious uncertainty and torturous wait, finally the Wangcha Rajkumar
Government College formerly called Tirap Degree College and later re-
In fact, the tumultuous and directionless journey of WRG College has been like the
proverbial ‘rolling stone gathers no moss’. The college was neither here nor there
and was heading no where in terms of growth and development. Much water has flowed
under the Deomali bridge ever since the college was arbitrarily shifted to Deomali
one fine morning in 2000 with 68 students and 6 faculty members without the pre-
As a matter of fact, innumerable problems and lack of basic facilities notwithstanding,
the college was somehow running smoothly at Khela before it was suddenly shifted
to Deomali. It is needless to say that problems like lack of proper infrastructure
and other modern amenities are faced everywhere whenever and wherever new institutions
are established. As of now, at Deomali, the boys are housed in labourers’ barracks
earlier occupied by labourers of the Nocte Timber Company Ltd while the girl students
stay in the hostel constructed last year under a central scheme. Many boys and girls
also stay in rented houses. The classes and offices are run in a building earlier
constructed for a TB Hospital. The faculty members and the non-
After that fateful day and unexpected turn of event a decade ago, the WRG College
has today grown in leaps and bounds. The enrolment of students in the College has
crossed 600 and interesting, the ratio of boys and girls is almost fifty-
Let us remember that establishment of the college at Deomali is only a temporary
arrangement with no official sanction whatsoever. Since Deomali is not the permanent
college site, it does not qualify for affiliation to the University Grant Commission.
Little wonder then, due to non-
We all must admit that precious 10 years have been wasted by the state government,
elected leaders of Tirap, intelligentsia, social workers and public by not bothering
to address the issue of finalizing the permanent site of the college seriously. Every
body including even the lay persons say that the college should have been established
at Deomali which has better communication and other required facilities both for
the students and the faculty members. But it is easier said than done. There is absolutely
no doubt that any body would want the college to be established at Deomali but we
must remember that the whole Deomali falls under reserve forest and de-
However, we must also remember that the college site at Khela was selected by the concerned department, public leaders and the people. There was absolute unanimity on that. The Expert Committee also gave a green signal for establishment of the college at Khela. In fact, Deomali was never in the scheme of things of the Expert Committee due to the complicacies involved in acquiring land there. The villagers of Khela, Lamsa and Bunting generously donated land for the college free of cost. Now, it will be sheer wastage of time crying over spilt milk and missed opportunities. We all failed to acquire land at Deomali for the college in the last 10 years. As of today, it has already been officially notified for shifting the college to its original place Khela. So no scope for further debate on this.
Now, the chapter of debate on the permanent site of the college is closed and irrelevant.
The onus is now on the elected leaders of Tirap to create required infrastructure
at Khela on priority to expedite shifting of the college at the earliest to enable
the college avail the benefits extended by UGC. However, till the basic required
amenities are in place, the authorities must not act in a haste to shift the college.
It will mean impeding education. Improvement of the road from Khonsa to Khela, establishment
of a branch post office, posting of a Doctor in the Health Sub-
On the other hand it is learnt that the Donyi Polo Government college at Kamki in
West Siang district which is also situated in a remote place, is doing well thanks
to the local leaders there for creating good infrastructure both for students and
the Lecturers. We can also develop Khele to enable the WRG college grow and create
and niche for itself in the field of higher education. Let us keep in mind that no
place on earth develops overnight. Another redeeming feature at Khela is that a full-
In fact, a satellite town has been created by the army near the college site. The army and students can mutually benefit in near future through educative exchange programmes. The students can also avail the benefits of army civic action schemes. So, the students and faculty members of the WRG college now in Deomali should feel happy that Khela is no longer like it was 10 years ago. All the elected leaders of Tirap must contribute generously for creation of infrastructure at Khela. After all it is the only college in the district where mostly the poor students from the district pursue their higher studies.
They must note that with the increase in the number of students and faculty members, more hostels, class rooms and staff quarters are required which means the task is arduous and more challenging. We must be fully prepared before we shift the college from Deomali to Khela today so that tomorrow we do not repent.
We often blame our students for not doing well in competitive examinations. But we must ponder over as to what we have done for them. We could not even decide on the permanent college site for 10 years. If the colleges can function smoothly in others districts of the state, why not in Tirap? We only need the will to do so. Napoleon said, “There are only two forces that unite men…. fear and interest.” Let our interest for WRG College unite us and let us contribute in whatever small ways we can for the healthy growth of the college.

ITANAGAR, Aug 31: “Every youth dreams of a brighter future. But you should remember that nothing can be achieved without hard work and perseverance and accordingly you must struggle right from day one to achieve what you dream,” said Yuva Arunachal (YA) president Chombey Kee.

ITANAGAR, Aug 31: The Land acquisition process for construction of 4-
Lambasting the dictatorial attitude of the state Govt while acquiring land for highway project, the Hollongi Land Affected People’s Welfare Committee (HLAPWC) said, “Today the affected land owners of the Papum Pare district are becoming victims of the dictatorial attitude of these implementing agencies and our people’s first government is keeping mum on the cries of the aggrieved people”. The HLAPWC decided that no further grievances would be addressed to the concern authority or state government again and would file complaint to the central Highway Authority and nock the door of the court for justice.
The State Government has engaged the implementing agencies for land acquisition without directing them to follow strict procedure as prescribed by the law under Land Acquisition Act, 1894 (compensation), it claimed.
HLAPWC declared the final assessment made on August 30 and 31, 2011 as illegal and misuse of power and position by the concern implementing authority and appealed to all the land owners to be united to fight against injustice and nullify the way final assessment was taken by LR and SO Yupia and his team at Hollongi on August 30 and 31.
Most of the land owners did not co-
“We demand the State Government for special inquiry into the assessment made as due to the fixation of very low rate of land and assets many of the land owners were compelled to make artificial plantation, fish ponds and tree plantation etc. on the previous nights to makeup the losses going to be incurred by them and which was happily accepted by the visited official team for final assessment,” it said. “Instead of practicing illegal and unofficial methods by the authority to please the selective land owners they could have enhanced the rate officially”, the committee said.
“It is learned that backdoor policies were adopted by few individuals as mediator
to indulge in such illegal activities by public as well as discourage the committee
to fight against the government for the rights of whole land owners. But what they
are not realizing today is Nandigram-
ITANAGAR, Aug 31: Every year thousand of students go through whole lot of confusion after passing out class XII board exam. Majority of confusion centres on what course to pursue after class XII. For state like Arunachal where only medical and engineering degrees are considered as safe career option, students face hard time while choosing their career. To make the matter worse, Arunachalee parents, specially the middle class section always prefer their children pursuing engineering and medical course.
The moment results for various entrance exams for medical and engineering are declared, many families go through trauma. There are students who wish to pursue other courses as per their interests but are compelled to study science only for the sake of parents. So, when they fail to secure good result in various entrance exams the whole problem starts. The office of director of higher and technical education, Itanagar, becomes centre of activity during months of June and July as every parents scramble to get their ward seat in some professional courses. “We have limited number of seats for professional courses. It is not possible to accommodate all the children and many times we have to turn down their requests. We do feel bad for students and their parents but we are helpless too,” informed an official of director of higher and technical education department.
While parents have some other dream for their children, the younger ones have their
own set of dream too. Such clash of dreams does have catastrophic effect. It’s hard
to understand why there is so many clamours for medical and engineering courses in
Arunachal? Few days ago during a group conversation, this topic popped up and a friend
of mine explained to us the reason for this. “Most of big-
Coming back to the main issue, how fair it is on the part of parents to force their will on children? Being parents, it is understood that they care for their children and wish all happiness for them. However children also have their own likes and dislikes. They too have their own dreams and wishes. Many a times we witness the situation where parents force children to study engineering or medical, though he/she may be interested in some other field. After passing class X, children are forced to opt for science stream even though he/she may be very weak in Mathematics. Just that children qualified for science does not mean that they have to study only science. The mistake Arunachalee parents commit is that they don’t look beyond engineering and medical courses. They don’t try asking children what’s their dream is and what course they wish to pursue? Arunachal could have produced many great artists, poets, economists, social scientists, sportsmen etc if children were allowed to pursue their interests.
This journalist too faced similar problem during school days. Though passed class X with first class mark but was always weak in Mathematics and wished to pursue arts in order to study journalism after class XII. However, he had to study science for parent’s sake but after passing class XII when ‘the moment’ came, decided to follow his dream and study journalism. How can the student who wishes to pursue journalism or any other course be forced to study engineering? That will kill the very dream children weaved around their lives. It is time Arunachalee parents look beyond engineering and medical courses and let children follow their dream.

The meeting had threadbare discussion on mushrooming of Nyishi based organization and its impact on the whole Nyishi community. After detail discussion, the house unanimously resolved to discourage formation of any Nyishi based organization. However, already formed Nyishi based organizations, namely, NES, ANSU, NFC, NWA among others are to function by maintaining the prestige, honour and dignity of the Nyishi community. They also called for discouraging all Nyishi based organization from involving in active politics.
The house further discouraged the frequent bandh calls called by ANSU and other Nyishi

Millions of people without citizenship
Some 12 million people around the world do not have citizenship of any country and are being denied basic human rights as a result, the UN has warned.
The organisation is calling for more countries to sign up to two conventions on statelessness. It says the issue is becoming worse as stateless children are born to stateless parents.
The problem is most widespread in South East Asia, Central Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Due to their lack of nationality, stateless people can face a whole range of problems including issues owning property, opening a bank account, getting married legally or registering the birth of a child.
Some even face long periods of detention, because they cannot prove who they are or where they are from.
Only 66 states are signed up to the 1954 Convention entitling stateless people to minimum standards of treatment while a mere 38 are party to the 1961 Convention which provides a legal framework to help states reduce statelessness.
However, in recent months Croatia, Panama, the Philippines and Turkmenistan have all signed up to one or both of the international conventions, the UNHCR said.
People can become stateless for a variety of reasons, including the break-
Stateless people include the Rohingya in Burma, some hill tribes in Thailand, some Roma groups in Europe and the Bidoon people of the Gulf States.
An appeal to Govt
In view of proposal to enhance the Grade Pay of the Ministerial staff (LDC), I would like to put forward the following points in your esteemed Daily for consideration of the Govt.
Is it observed that the authorities always accede to demands of some sections of employees just because of numerical strength overlooking the other equivalent employees working under the same Government. Earlier the state Govt. enhanced the pay scales of ministerial staff despite the fact that adequate promotional avenues already exists for them. Except where RR are changed and CPC fixes higher scales; retention of equality is most desirable. A LDC of the Civil Secretariat can reach up to Gazetted post of Under Secretary and above. And those of the Directorates are promoted to Superintendent or Administrative Officer. Means, one is sure to get at least one or more promotions.
But what about those posts having no promotional avenues at all? Exclusion/deprivation of the equivalent posts from up gradation is very demoralizing. In fact, those lacking promotional opportunities should be preferred for upgradation.
I, therefore, appeal that the authorities take the above facts into consideration and adopt a comprehensive policy so far as upgradation of any category of workforce is concerned so as to ensure that the pay parity is maintained.
A Concerned employee, Itanagar

It is very unfortunate that oldest town of the state Pasighat remains cut off from the capital for last many days after massive flood that occurred in neighbouring Assam. Everyone knows that Siang valley remains cut off from rest of the state during rain season, but this time the situation of the Siang valley get worsened due to snapping of road link for almost a month. The people are facing difficulties to manage their day today expenditure due to sky rocketing prices of essential commodities.
It is worth mentioning here that not only Siang Valley but other parts of the state

I also request the prominent NGOs including apex students bodies to think on this issue seriously, otherwise days will not far when we will have to produce outer line pass to neighbouring state to get reach in our own district.

This is in connection with the news items published in your esteemed daily under the caption “PR leader demands completion of PMGSY road” on Aug 31.
Being an educated soul of the same village I also appreciate Tali Dong for bringing out such important issues before the authorities.

Therefore, I request our authorities to look into the matter and take up step for immediate completion of road. I also demand stern action against the contractor who left the works half done.
