youths passing out from six ITI's from various districts of the state, PPA president

of locally available raw material based skilled manpower” is extremely dangerous
and harmful not only to the youths and their family households but to the state as
“In absence of factories, industries and other employment avenues such as private

Unions, Fronts and Forums to ventilate their grievances.”

in 18 different trades produce hundreds of frustrated souls. “With Govt department
reaching a saturated point to absorb any further staffs and to add salt to the wounds
of the unemployed youths, the RR policy of every Dept leaving no especial provision
for such skilled man power, the youths are left with no option but to either involve
in antisocial activities or become jack of all trades but master of none.”

backed by adequate resources to set up few dozens of small, medium and heavy industries
within the state and also expedite few hydro power and thermal power projects and
also open up the trade routes with neighboring countries to engage the youths in

AAPSU expresses shock over ‘dissidence activities’, calls for introspection
ITANAGAR, Mar 01: All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union (AAPSU) expressed surprise
and shock over the ‘dissidence activities by the power hungry politicians in the
state’ when the state is facing plethora of problem starting from inter-state boundary
dispute to racial killing of Nido Tania in New Delhi.
AAPSU said the elected leaders, particularly the state cabinet should rise to the
occasion and stand together to find out solution to every problem confronting the
state and its people.
“Shockingly, few power hungry politicians instead of working for the greater interest
of the people and the state, are reportedly lobbying in Delhi for a change in leadership.
It is for them to reply whether they are interested in the cause of the people or
only in their vested interest,” said AAPSU in a release today. While pointing out
the recent Tarasso incident, boundary dispute, week-long economic blockade on NH
52, death of Arunachalee boy Nido Tania in National capital, increase in corruption
cases and law and order problems which are cause of concern, AAPSU also raised question
on timing for dissidence activities. “It is time for the Arunachal leaders to plan
strategy for enactment of anti-racial law, strengthen the Border Affairs department
with adequate manpower to deal with recurring inter-state boundary problems, expedite
the process for the Union Home Ministry to act on the report submitted by the Local
Boundary Commission constituted by the Supreme Court.”
The AAPSU further said that the state government should make all out efforts to clear
the pending bills, particularly local contractors so that they do not suffer and
the money goes back to the market.
“It is surprising that at this juncture, elected leaders have the guts to fly to
Delhi and lead a lavish life at the cost of the state exchequer” AAPSU said and advocated
that there should be a mandatory provision for the ministers to make details of their
trips to Delhi public. They are answerable to the people as people’s representatives
and their expenses are borne by the public exchequer, it said. AAPSU further calls
for introspection before it is too late as the “Arunachal leaders seemingly have
crossed all limits.”
