Declare result at the earliest
This is with reference to the order no. tax (E)-461/2011-82 regarding declaration
of result of constable tax and excise. I on behalf of the appearing candidates would
like to draw the kind attention through your daily esteem regarding the delay of
written test result which was conducted on 02/09/12. The exam/ interview were conducted
free and fair but getting delay in declaration of result.
In this regard chief minister, who is minister of Tax and Excise, had constituted
a Enquiry Board Members for enquiry into the facts under the supervision of IAS officer
and some sub-ordinate officers but there has been no any outcome yet, and the enquiry
is also processing slowly. I want to ask the chairman of enquiry board Committees,
that everything was conducted free and fair under the supervision of IAS officers,
then why it getting late to complete the enquiry.
I on behalf of the candidates urge all the NGOs and pressure groups to interfere
in this matter; your interference is highly solicited for better consequences. Therefore,
I appeal chairman of enquiry committee to kindly submit your enquiry report to Department
as soon as possible to avoid before any miss-conceptions toward the enquiry committee/

I would like to draw the attention of Chief Minister cum Minister, Land Management,
Govt. of Arunachal Pradesh that there is lot of encroachment problems in all Administrative
Headquarters of state including at Circle level. The major encroachment is taking
place in mainly, District Headquarter and in twin capital city. To stop this phenomenon
there is need of bold political decision at govt. level and amendment of some suitable
act and rule.
In this regards I want to lay down following few remedies which needs to be taken
by Hon’ble CM cum Minister Land Management for effective measures:-
1. The Public Premises act itself is found to be defective where there is no
provision for stopping ongoing encroachment as like earth cutting, construction of
OBT houses, Erecting of fencing, arrest of culprit etc.
2. The Arunachal Land Record and Settlement Act itself is found to be defective
where there is no provision of protecting the land where Govt. has already established
Administrative Headquarter, PHC Centre, School Land, Other Govt. Establishment Centre
even at District Headquarter there is claim back of already earmarked land of Govt.
with the help of legal means as there is no proper land acquisition has been done
almost all the land under present occupation of Govt. There is also land dispute
during the time of contract work, the land donors claim the contract work being the
land donor and sometime land donor gets the contract work and the result has been
found ineffective and not satisfactory. As such there is need for amendment of land
record and settlement act in regard to land that has been taken earlier without proper
3. In village level there is land dispute among the land owner in which the
land owner of Village land direct the house holder to vacant the house/building.
This issue is needed to be address properly at Govt. level before occurring of untoward
incident at village level.
4. The Govt. of Arunachal Pradesh has appointed Circle Officer, EAC, SDO, ADC
even AIGP for Police Land and ADC Headquarter for District Headquarter as Estate
Officer of respective jurisdiction since few years back. However, till date there
is no effective prevention on mass encroachment of Govt. Land especially at District
Headquarter including twin capital city which needs special attention of CM. Further,
there is Land Revenue and Settlement Officer posted in every district and they look
after the all land matter but they are working as silence spectator or only reporting
Officer and they have no role to stop mass encroachment.
As such LR & SO should be appointed as Estate Officer with Executive Magistrate only
for land purpose to arrest/book the encroacher under appropriate law of the land.
Continue the good work
Though I have never met Mr. Talo Potom, I have heard enough to write in defense of
him. We may have many honest officers, but very few are both honest and bold. I suppose,
our leaders have rightly recognized it in Mr. Talo Potom. Whatever the issues are,
let us not fail to appreciate those who serve us with such diligence. Such officers
as Mr. Talo Potom can be an encouragement to our younger generation. I appeal to
Mr. Talo Potom to continue his good work. We need you sir for a better Capital.
As Kenya began three days of mourning on Wednesday for at least 67 people killed
in the siege of a Nairobi mall, it was unclear how many more hostages may have died
with the Somali Islamist attackers buried in the rubble. Five militants and six security
personnel died in the four days of fighting.
Sixty-one civilians had so far been confirmed dead. Kenyan officials declined to
say how many of 63 people whom the Red Cross had earlier classed as unaccounted for
may also have died in a showdown with guerrillas, who had threatened to kill their
hostages and go down fighting. The incident is chilling reminder of 2008 Mumbai attacks
in which members of Lasker E Taiba killed 164 people and wounded at least 308 in
well coordinated attacks. Eight of the attacks occurred in South Mumbai: at Chhatrapati
Shivaji Terminus, theOberoi Trident, Taj Mahal Palace hotel Leopold Cafe, Cama Hospital,
Nariman House Jewish community centre and Metro Cinema. The Nairobi incident has
again started to worry Indian security agencies. Several shopping malls spread across
country do not have proper security measures and is vulnerable to attack. Security
agencies should take lesson out of Nairobi incident and beep up security in all the
shopping malls of country.
