Ramesh slams Arunachal Govt on PMGSY project implementation
ITANAGAR, Mar 3: The Union Minister for Rural Development Jairam Ramesh who recently
visited Arunachal Pradesh during statehood day celebration has written a letter to
Chief Minister Nabam Tuki expressing his serious concern over the implementation
of PMGSY road projects in the state. In a letter dated 22nd February 2013, a copy
of which is made available with this daily, Ramesh particularly showed his concern
over quality of roads.
It is to be mentioned that during his visit to the state besides being chief guest
at statehood day celebration, the Union RD Minister had visited Vijoynagar in Changlang
district and Bameng in East Kameng district to laid foundation stone for two major
“I am writing to inform you that we have just sanctioned PMGSY proposals for Arunachal
Pradesh amounting to Rs.847.45 crore for 94 road works and 28 long-span bridges covering
1148.96 kms,” the letter read. “ However, I must also bring to your personal attention
three very important issues that have a bearing on the PMGSY programme in Arunachal
Pradesh. While I am all for giving flexibility to the state considering the special
circumstances prevailing there and the special challenges being faced there, I think
we would be doing a gross disservice to the people of the state, for whom PMGSY roads
are being built, if these issues continue to get ignored,” the letter continued.
The Union minister clearly mentioned that the roads already sanctioned are yet to
be completed, including 90 works sanctioned prior to March 2010. “Against required
maintenance expenditure in the last 3 years of Rs.6.65 crore, actual expenditure
is only Rs.1.94 crore. The quality of roads is very poor, with 23 per cent at ongoing
stage and 17 per cent on completion being graded unsatisfactory by national quality
monitors,” Ramesh wrote in the letter.
He urged Chief Minister to devote more attention to these three issues and keep him
informed about the steps being taken by the state to rectify this unsatisfactory
state of affairs.
According to the observer the major cause for delay and poor quality of work should
be attributed to the contractor and public of the particular area. “Many a times
contractors compromise with the quality of road for their benefits. However some
of the blame for it should be borne by the public of the area. They usually disturb
contractors and implementing agencies demanding their share in the work. This leads
to the serious compromise of the work,” said a keen observer.
It’s been observed that areas like Siang belt, Papum Pare, Kurung Kumey, East Kameng
and insurgency infected districts of Tirap, Changlang and Longding are worst performer
of PMGSY projects. Even during his statehood day celebration speech, Ramesh had
stressed on the need for judicious use of fund being provided by central Govt and
emphasized that fund should reach the actual beneficiary.

be stopped immediately for larger benefits of students and society as a whole, reiterated
Biru Nasi, GeneralSecretary, AAPSU.
Parents should also extend their support to school administration in banning sale
and use of tobacco products within the school campus.

Products (Prohibition of Advertisement and Regulation Trade and Commerce, Production,
Supply and Distribution) Act, 2003,' known as COTPA in short as tobacco consumption
rate in Arunachal Pradesh is higher than national average. The union also urged

green economy, particularly in poor communities where many types of such plants are
harvested, says a new study released by the United Nations Environment Programme
(UNEP) in collaboration with the Government of Nepal.
By harvesting these plants sustainably, and improving their value-added activity
so collectors receive a fair share of the profits, the trade could contribute to
social equity, environmental conservation and economic prosperity, said UNEP Programme

eradication were among the themes endorsed at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development
(Rio+20) last June.
As part of turning those themes into action, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged

The never ending agony of DRDA employees
Through your esteem daily would like to share few things in regards to DRDA employees.
The All India DRDA Employees Association, West Kameng District Unit appraised R.T.
Khunjuju, Parliamentary Secretary, Hydro Power Development on 1st March regarding
the poor service conditions of the employees since the inception of DRDAs in Arunachal
Pradesh. I along with a delegation appraised the following to take up the matter
at Govt. level:
The Govt. letter No. CD-47/82(IRD)PT/121 Signed by A.K. Ahooja, Chief Secretary,
Govt. of Arunachal Pradesh has not been implemented fully. Wherein, Para 2 of the
Govt. letter states that the rules and regulations and provisions of FR, SR, CSR,
GFR etc will be applicable to the DRDA staffs under Government of Arunachal Pradesh.
(not implemented in case of DRDA)
Para 4.2 of the DRDA Guidelines (Govt. of India) states that The state Rural Development
Department should draw 3-5 year plan for absorption of the staffs into the line Department.
In addition, there are number of reminder letters from Ministry of Rural Development,
Govt. of India addressed to Ex Chief Minister Lt. Dorjee Khandu as well as the present
Chief Minister, Nabam Tuki and the minister of Rural Development, Govt. of Arunachal
Pradesh, Tanga Byaling for absorption of DRDA employees into the line Department.
The DRDA employees in all the districts of Arunachal Pradesh are not getting their
salaries starting from 6 months to 1 year at a stress which is a regular phenomena
in all the DRDAs of the state which is a gross violation of article 39 (equal pay
for equal work) under Indian constitution and also the violation of article 23 of
the UN’s universal declaration of human rights which states that everyone who works
has the right to just and favourable remuneration ensuring for himself and his family
an existence worthy of human dignity, and social protection. 85% of the DRDAs in
all over India have already been absorbed in the state cadre line Departments. There
are number of correspondence letters from Ministry of Rural Development, Govt. of
India reminding the state Govt. for absorption of DRDA staffs into the line Department.
Since Govt. of India is allocating 90% of the fund for staff salary there shouldn’t
be any backdrop of pay disbursement to the employees.

We have waited too long...
It is very much well known to everyone that Lower Siang District creation demand
has been an issue so dear to the hearts of the Public of 28 Likabali and 36 -Nari
-Koyu (ST) ACs since 1994.
Almost two decades have gone bye but the light of hope to see a district of the foothill
people of this neglected part of Arunachal Pradesh has eluded us so far. A flicker
of hope came with the cabinet meeting held on l2th January 2013 and subsequent declaration
clearing the way for creation of Lower Siang District. We heartily welcome the public
welfare oriented decision of the Govt, of Arunachal Pradesh. But we the people of
28 -Likabali and 36 -Nari-Koyu (ST) ACs would like to request the decision makers
not to commit a blunder by inclusion in the almost two decades old dream of Lower
Siang District with that of the newly born demand for Leppa rada District creation
issue of Basar public.
The Govt of Arunachal Pradesh must be practical in its choice of decision. The Lower
Siang District demand is an outcome of the government welfare programmes not being
able to reach this far flung Assembly Constituencies. The need for creation of LOWER
SIANG DISTRICT is due to the geographically contiguous landscape of this both assembly
The Govt, of Arunachal Pradesh must also recognize the serious problems faced by
people of two assembly constituency. The boundary problems created with neighbouring
state Assam and the law and order problems associated with it. Both this constituency
remains cut from their respective headquarters namely Pasighat and Aalo during rainy
These are the reasons for demanding of LOWER SIANG DISTRICT by the foothill people
of 28-Likabali & 36- Nari-Koyu (ST) ACs whereas Basar which is jut 40 Km away from
present Headquarter Aalo whereas, the furthest village under 28-Likablai is more
than 270 Km approx. from Aalo.
Last but not the least we the people of 28- Likabali and 36-Nari-koyu (ST) ACs once
again thank and send our heartfelt gratitude to the present state Govt, for giving
the cabinet nod for creation of LOWER SIANG DISTRICT. And also request for listing
of Lower Siang District creation demand bill in the activities of the assembly session
that begins this March. If it will not be introduced this Assembly session then this
will be the greatest injustice committed to the district demand creation of both
the assembly constituency, because we have witnessed many other newly born demands
for district creation being created into new districts by the govt. Justice delayed
is justice denied. However if justice is truly given to us then all of us who have
lived everyday with pain and sorrow are ready to welcome it.
