CVYA hits back
ITANAGAR, Sep 27: Standing firm on its earlier Press statement, Chimpu Village Youth Association (CVYA), in a release today asserted that Tapi Mra’s clarification is nothing but an attempt to protect his own reputation.
Narrating the whole episode, CVYA said that the volunteers, after spotting a car which was parked near the road side jungle on that very day, had asked the owner ‘politely’ to come out of the car. But there was no response until the volunteers knocked at the door of the car for several times. Finally, a person came out of the car with a local dao in his hand, who was later identified as Mra, the association claimed. Surprisingly, a woman was also spotted inside his car in a suspicious condition, the association claimed.
It demanded that Mra should be booked for threatening the volunteers on duty with dao.
“Law should be equal for all and Mra should not be protected for being an Everester,” it said.
The association said that the area is becoming a place of unwanted activities since last few years for which volunteers are regularly engaged to check such illegal activities.
It is a matter of great regret that Mra, after committing such illicit activity, has been garnering support through false statement for arrest of the association members who have been helping authority in checking illegal activities within capital complex, CVYA maintained.

Blaming the Congress government for their failure to restore peace and normalcy in the state, he said “Arunachal Pradesh once a peaceful state is now moving towards violence and gun culture and the peace loving people here are living under fear psychosis and the Congress MLAs of Arunachal Pradesh are becoming as if as market commodities just for political mileage of individual in the present tug of war for Chief Minister’s post”.

ITANAGAR, Sep 27: Expressing serious concern over deteriorating law and order situation in the state, All Nyishi Students’ Union (ANSU) urged the Home Minister to wake up from deep slumber and tackle the prevailing situation.
The state has witnessed a number of ugly and serious incidents in the recent past which has infused a feeling of insecurity and fear psychosis among people, ANSU said. Giving a detailed account of such incidents, ANSU said that the attack on Everester Tapi Mra, firing at Sinki View, assault on advocate, vandalization of Itanagar Market Welfare Association office, frequent bandh calls, the reported kidnapping of an MLA from near CM official residence simply indicate State Government’s the incapability in handling even internal security issue.
“Leaders are not remembered for their words but for their deeds and accomplishments, ANSU said and advised the Home Minister to speak less and work more in order to maintain peace and tranquility in state and make people feel safe and secure. Otherwise, the Home Minister would be answerable for all the happenings, ANSU cautioned.
ANSU demanded the State Government to put all security measures in place and deploy
policemen at all the sensitive area of the capital complex, especially during night
time in order to prevent anti-
It also urged the general public not take law in their hand in any circumstances rather they should inform the law enforcing authority in case they find any issue involving law and order problems.

ITANAGAR, Sep 27: The Arunachal Law Students' Union (ALSU) while appreciating passing of three major bills during recently concluded assembly session has expressed shock over way state Legislators are not interested in discussing about the separation of judiciary from executives at the floor of the house. In a release ALSU stated that they have reminded government several times through memorandum and media regarding the complete Separation of Judiciary from Executives, immediate establishment of already approved Law College and establishment of Central Jail and Juvenile Home in the State, the government is yet to show any interest in these issues.
ALSU said these subject matters are outmost of necessity for the welfare of Arunachalee citizens. But leaders are busier in fighting for the magical chair and depriving the public of their basic rights, it added. ALSU President Tadar Tarish said, "It is surprising why legislators are not interested in discussing the separation of Judiciary from Executive in the floor of house. If there is no separation of power then how all the govt. organs like legislature, the executive and judiciary will function independently? Here in the state of Arunachal Pradesh legislatures and executive power are exercised by the same man which leads to the vested interest and corruption.”
Meanwhile, the team of Arunachal Law Students' Union (ALSU) visited the Arunachal Law Academy (ALA) and found lots of loopholes and lacunae. It has come to know that the institution does not have permanent infrastructures, no qualified Principal, no proper guidelines and library facilities too. The union has also found that the institution is running without following the rules and regulations laid down by the Bar Council of India and it is also very doubtful whether the institution has been recognized by Bar Council of India and whether it is really run by the LOYALA Trust. According to Bar Council of India's rules and regulations, in order to establish a Law College whether it may be private or govt. there should be permanent infrastructure and as per as possible the principal of the institution should possess Ph D Degree (Doctorate) and their should be an well qualified lecturers with NET Qualification. And as per as fee structure is concerned, it should be reasonable which may be affordable by the poor students. And through some of the reliable sources the union has come to know that the institution is not promoting the students who got back in one paper. And the poor students have to wait for whole one year in order to clear that paper which is violation of Right to Education. Most of the universities in India do not have such rules rather they are promoting their students to next semester and subsequently the students can clear back paper in the coming semester. Therefore, union demands the ALA authority and RGU to promote all those students who got back paper.
ITANAGAR, Sep 27: The Arunachal Pradesh unit of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) today held the Centre, particularly the Congress high command, responsible for the current political crisis in the state leading to ‘worst’ law and order situation in the state.
The frequent bandh calls, violent activities, kidnappings etc. are nothing but just the outcome of the present political unrest and the sole responsibility goes to AICC, said NCP vice president Tad Tana.
“We want to ask the AICC high command, especially the AICC president Sonia Gandhi and general secretary Rahul Gandhi as to why almost half of their Congress MLA’s of Arunachal Pradesh were camping in Delhi for the last three to four months. Were they not aware of the fact?
They should have advised the MLAs to go back to their own state and their constituency in particular to look after and monitor the various developmental activities and also they should have passed an order for the ministers touring at foreign countries to come back to the state and try to solve the crisis. But they didn’t do, Tana said.
It is evident from their attitude that AICC is least concerned for the people of Arunachal Pradesh, the NCP vice president said and criticised AICC for their lack of will power to solve the crisis of this bordering state.
Ours is a democratic country with a state having a system that the political party with majority no. of representatives will serve the state. But when the party with majority in Arunachal Pradesh was divided into two folds over the leadership issue, what was the duty of the AICC supremo, he questioned.
“Many points are there to prove the involvement of AICC in the political unrest here. After the tragic death of Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu, they elected a new leader as CM and now they are looking for an alternate choice. Is it not a drama being played by the AICC?” Tana questioned.
He said that the people of the state including business community, daily bread earners, poor villagers etc. are bearing the brunt of the faults.
It urged the AICC to take measures to keep the Arunachal Government stable in public interest.
Tana added that all the MoU’s signed with various power developers in the state against various Hydro Electrict Project signed by the Arunachal Pradesh Govt. were also undertaken under the supervision of the Centre ignoring the problems and interest of the common masses.
Meanwhile, NCP Legislature Party spokesperson Bamang Felix expressed concern over the recent breach in law and order situation particularly in the state capital complex.
The latest incident of an alleged kidnapping of a sitting minister at gun-
“We, being elected representatives of the people, have been compelled to raise our voice as the allegation of kidnapping and manhandling came from the Congress party itself. If there is any bit of truth in the allegation, it can be assumed that not everything is well within the ruling government. In that case, governance, peace and development of the state would be in stake”, the release said.
The NCP state unit raised objection to the deteriorating law and order situation. It called upon the government to sort out the issues and put its house in order for over all welfare of all.

An open letter to home minister
Your priorities are clear. The safety and security of people of state are not your
business. But the safety and security of criminals, leaders and politicians. The
scenes of violence, atrocities and conduct of the men in uniforms are evident. The
affluent people, criminals and men in uniform (IRBN) are free to commit crimes and
make mistakes and do bad things. Whats your view on the beating up of my two younger
brothers by the frustrated and unwanted IRBN personals? Who has given them the right
to manhandle a law abiding citizen? Not wearing helmet? Is it reason enough to brutally
beat up someone? Is this the way & procedure? Is this how you run your department
hopelessly? A foolish consistency on your part in not able to control the law and
order. As we have no hope and faith on the Police Department, I am to declare that,
the concern troop in-
I strongly appeal for criminal and disciplinary action by the department. Never undermine or force us to speak in a language not warranted by law.
Naharlagun, (on email)
We need you
I would express my view regarding recent kidnapping and man handling of congress legislator in Itanagar.
After reading the news regarding man handling and kidnapping of congress legislator, I feel ashamed to be known as Arunachalee. Well here my thought may differ from other, because presently other congress party are staying in Delhi with an excuse that their life is at risk in Arunachal. We know how much they enjoy privilege here being as a leader. So, for me its kind of joke, lets not forget that legislator who was manhandled and kidnapped might be part of it, because they got high security. It all seems to be planted. So my request is please stop playing with general public and think for the development of people of Arunachal, instead of staying away from native place. We need you.
Citizen, (on email)
Please make up your mind
I love this paper specially so, because we find the space to share our views in the readers forum. I would like to thank N L.Richo, NIT Patna for dispersing such valuable information about ATM and hidden cameras in trial rooms and hotels which am sure is every female's nightmare.
Somehow I cannot conclude my letter without commenting on the highly comical charade of the AVYF lodging an FIR against a minister and withdrawing it after a careful examination. Careful examination? What is that? I am a highly exasperated citizen and want to ask these people to please make up your minds first. Do not portray yourself as crusaders of society when in fact it is quite the opposite. For your kind information we have brains too and in fact better ones. Arunachal is quickly turning into a joke because of you all but I would like to impress upon, that it still consist of a majority of people who are cultured, sane and dignified.

Rehabilitation is not against Lisus
Elvin Yobin has written in “Reader Forum” under the caption “ More than that meets eye” that the land identified for Rehabilitation of Lisu settlement of Namdapha Tiger Reserve is the plot claimed by the local people and is disputed area. It is also stated that there has been serious fight in between the local people and Chakmas for the said land. It is to clear before the esteemed readers of your daily that the land identified by the Committee is well within the Miao Reserve Forest and is away from Namdapha National Park. Hence there is no question of claim and infighting as it is Govt. Forests.
Liahey Ngwazah under caption “ Do not displace the people” has stated that the present land under their occupation inside Namdapha Tiger Reserve(Namdapha National Park) is their ancestors homeland but fact remains that some of the Lisu peoples are encroachers in Namdapha National Park as the area erstwhile was constituted as Reserve Forests vide preliminary notification No.A1316/46/23, dtd 7/7/1948. And after going through due processes declared as RF in 1970 and subsequently declared as Wildlife Sanctuary in 2nd Oct/1972 and National Park cum Tiger Reserve during 1983.It is also stated that portion of Namdapha National Park has been identified for the purpose of rehabilitation of Lisu community which is also not correct. The 200ha land identified is well within Miao Reserve Forest and is away from Namdapha National Park. The 200 ha is sufficient for rehabilitation of lisu community who are living inside the National Park(Tiger Reserve) as per norms set by the Govt. of India. “Stop harassing lisu people” by Aphu.A.Yobin of Gandhigram under caption “ Live and let live”, it is to inform your esteemed readers that at no stage Lisu people have been harassed by Park authority except the legal action taken against the offenders who violate the relevant sections of Wildlife Protection Act in force. Moreover, Park authority try to implement the guidelines of Govt. of India for rehabilitation of Lisu community who have encroached Core/Critical area of Tiger Reserve(National Park).
The rehabilitation process for the people who are living in the Critical/Core area of Tiger Reserve(National Park) is not only done in Namdapha National Park but also throughout the Country wherever necessary.
Therefore, Lisu Community should not think that Park Authority is doing something different against them.
In fact elite Lisu people should think for their better future and cooperate with the Govt. for smooth and successful rehabilitation programme as per the guideline and packages announced by the Govt. of India.

Legal remedies are always available
With reference to demand for transfer of West Siang DC as reported in the recent issue of your esteemed Daily, I would like share my views on the issue.
The last few years have seen rapid growth of clan/community-
Whatever be the reasons, the act of assaulting a District Magistrate in his chamber
In is turmoil, it may be worthwhile to ask ourselves some honest questions: Is it desirable to blindly support any movement on the basis of clan or community membership? Should an offender get unconditional support just because he/she belongs to one's clan/community ?

What was it?
I must express my anguish over 23rd September's as well as many other Bandh Calls. Who is Yangbio Takik? What is he? He took an issue out of blue moon and took the entire state for a ride & now he is apologizing stating that the case was already closed. If at all he had to take up issue why didn’t he clear his confusion before bringing it out to media. The damage is already done, tarnishing image of a cabinet minister and taking thousands of people to ransom. Because of his foolishness & stupidity, business community lost more than crore rupees of transaction. Thousands of official documents couldnt be processed.
I request capital DC to arrest the person concerned for risking the life & property of thousands of people dwelling in the capital city. Also it seems that the president of AVYF is incompetent and incapable of running an NGO, he should be impeached from his post and registration of AVYF be canceled. And as for my case, I am a Tempo driver, purchased with a bank loan and every Bandh call makes me go hungry.

I would like to appeal to all the land owners/families and people of Arunachal Pradesh not to be a hurry for any public hearing or to give in with the archaic & 117 years old land acquisition Act of 1894 enacted by the British Raj. The Democratically elected Government of Free India have recently enacted a Bill regarding land Acquisition for the people of India who have elected them. Once passed, the Bill will replace the controversial land acquisition Act of 1894 and will supersede all specialised legislation on land acquisition. Have a bit of patience till the Bill becomes an Act/Law or else everyone of us will be at the receiving end.
The new land Acquisition, Relief & Rehabilitation Bill 2011 clearly have been made for project affected families. It clearly mentions the consent of 80% of the affected families and in case if 80% of the project affected families agree/consents and part with the land of their forefathers the value of the land won't be less than 4 times the original market value in Rural areas and twice that of market value determined in Urban areas. A bit of patience and confidence in your Elected Government will bring us better prospects. Every Hydropower project affected families of Arunachal Pradesh should ensure themselves that they enjoy the "Historic Bill" once it replaces a 117 year old Act.

UN carbon credits for Delhi metro
The United Nations body administering the clean development mechanism under the Kyoto Protocol has certified that Delhi Metro has reduced emissions. It will now get $9.5m (£6.1m) in carbon credits annually for seven years. And as the number of passengers increase, so will this figure. No other Metro in the world could get the carbon credit for the above because of the very stringent requirement to provide conclusive documentary proof of reduction in emissions.
Every passenger who uses the Metro instead of cars or buses helps reduce greenhouse
emissions by approximately 100gm of carbon-
The system, which covers some of the city's most congested streets, is seen as the answer to Delhi's traffic chaos and has helped in lowering air pollution levels.
Carbon credits are generated by a UN-
