Steps being taken to bring
personnel on right path: Khandu
ITANAGAR, Aug 9: Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu today admitted that something was terribly
wrong with the state police force. He was however quick to add that steps are being
taken to ensure that personnel are on the right path and discharge their duties as
expected by the citzens. His response came after unprecedented public outbursts following
police highhandedness which resulted in deaths of two citizens in as many months.
The latest case came from Longding, where reportedly local residents clashed with
police injuring at least 5 persons including two constables.
In a meet the press prog today at his office, a candid Chief Minister said that benefaction
by political leaders on police personnel was one of the greatest hindrances in maintaining
strict discipline in the force. He said interferences in transfer and postings of
police personnel besides undue favors had psychological effects on the personnel,
encouraging them to misbehave at times.
Without mincing any words, the Chief Minister said that state police was creating
law and order problem in the state.
Chief Minister said that he would soon hold a meeting with senior Police officers
to discuss the issues confronting the men and women in uniform while adding that
in March, the state government would place a bill on workings of the Police department
including transfer and postings. He further promised to take action against erring
Police officials and officers.
The Chief Minister further said he would take a decision on sending the IRBn, out
of the state only after a thorough discussion with his cabinet colleagues and MLAs
irrespective of party affiliations. The IRBn, which is subject to the centre, has
been in news for all the wrong reason in the state for taking law into their hands.
The Khandu government has so far resisted from sending these boys out of the state
as such forces are usually deputed to high conflict areas.
The Chief Minister further informed that state government allocated Rs 4 cr for the
police dept to modernize itself.
Road Infrastructure: There is some good news for the citizens of capital region.
The Chief Minister informed that Rs 43 Cr has been earmarked for maintenance of road
in Capital Complex. He said that after the monsoon the repair work will start.
Talking on wide varieties of issues confronting the state, he said that state was
on the right track of development. He said that thrust is being given on development
of the rural areas of the state with horticulture, agriculture being given the priority.
Urban Posting: The Chief Minister further took a dig on those officials who prefer
urban postings. He said that employees during the time of recruitment agree to go
anywhere in the state but once they get their appointment letters, they are reluctant
to serve in interior areas.
Airport: The Chief Minister further said that centre is reconsidering its decision
on establishment of an airport in Tawang. The centre has shown its reluctance to
build the airport in Tawang, in an effort not to upset the Chinese. Though the centre
has not clarified why it is reluctant to come up with an airport, observers feel
that centre does not want to antagonize the people across the border.
Mithuns: Meanwhile the Chief Minister said that conservation efforts of Mithun, Yak
and Sheep should be stepped up. He appealed the people of the state to refrain from
sacrificing mithun during elections and marriage. Khandu said that his government
is committed to conservation and would take up awareness generation programme.
Hydro project: Despite opposition from sections of society on hydro power projects
in the state, the Chief Minister reiterated that only power projects can bail out
the state from the present penury. He appealed the people of the state to look at
the ground realities instead of being influenced by any forces. Reiterating that
Arunachal is the only state to have its own Relief and Rehabilitation policy, he
said all local concerns are being taken care of. He informed that the earlier earmarked
land compensation rate has been reviewed and now the respective deputy commissioners
have been empowered to fix it according to the latest value.
Khandu also negated the apprehension of downstream people in Assam. He asserted that
the fear of foods in Assam is completely unfounded.
“Dams would control floods instead of causing it,” he said while adding that science
and technology has advanced so much all spheres would be taken care off.
Scores injured at Diyun, AAPSU declares bandh on I-day
ITANAGAR, Aug 9: At least 30 people were injured today after they were ambushed at
Diyun by Chakma refugees as they were returning after attending a claims and objection
hearing pertaining to entry of refugees in the Electoral rolls. At least ten people
are reported to be seriously injured by glass splinters after the refugees attacked
the two busses in which they were travelling.
The EAC, Diyun Dakto Riba when contacted said that hearing had gone off peacefully
and the incident happened as the citizens were on their way to Namsai after the completion
of the hearing for the day. He said that state government has been informed of the
incident and that the Changlang district administration was awaiting a response from
the authorities. The hearing is scheduled for three days starting from today.
An unconfirmed report said that two Chakmas were also injured as the citizens retaliated
after the busses were ambushed. The EAC when queried on this said that the two Chakmas
have been handed over to the families.
Meanwhile, All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union taking strong objection to the attack
has declared 12 hours state wide bandh in its first phase of protest on Aug 15.
AAPSU which has softened its stand on refugees in recent times in accordance with
the prevailing refugee law, angered by today’s incident demanded immediate deportation
of the Chakma refugees and threatened to go on an indefinite protest all over the
state until the refugees are deported.
The Union further demanded claims and objections hearing be postponed till the court
verdict. The Union has filed a PIL against the enrollment of refugees in the electoral
roll. An infuriated AAPSU president Takam Tatung while speaking to this daily questioned
why the Election Commission was initiating electoral process when the matter is subjudiced
in the High Court.
On the other hand, the Union questioned the silence of the state government on the
refugee issue even after the Union had given a memorandum after the MPen attacks.
The Union in its memorandum to the state government had called for verification of
the refugee card holders. He said that if the government had verified the refugee
status, the problem would not have cropped up today. It looks like state government
is working for the cause of the refugees despite the fact that indigenous people
have been repeatedly subjected to attacks in their own land by the Chakma refugees.
The state cannot be a mute spectator to such discrimination, he said.
While referring to killing of ZPM, a circle officer, GB, Forest Officer and other
encroachment of land and law and order problem created by the refugees, the AAPSU
president said that state have had enough of Chakmas antics and it is time for the
state government to act. He further cited an example of the detainment of four students
including former AAPSU Vice President (Admn) Kunang Kri in Katan area in Wakro circle
by Chakmas a year back.
These are extreme example of violations of human rights of indigenous people by the
refugees, Takam said.

the new policies and strategies of the govt. far over all development of child and
