ABK threatens to protest against Apang arrest
AdiSu rejects government clarification
ITANAGAR, Aug 30: Adi Baane Kebang, the Apex Body of the Adis while taking strong
exception to the procedure used in the arrest of former Chief Minister Gegong Apang
has threatened to launch protest in all Adi inhabited areas if the complaint lodged
to the concerned authorities do not yield result within a reasonable time.
It has demanded a magisterial enquiry on whole episode regarding arrest of the former
It further called for equal treatment of all concerned in its meeting held yesterday.
In the meeting, it unanimously condemned the manner and ways the former Chief Minister
Gegong Apang was arrested by SP SIC M.S.Chauhan.
In a press release, it has said that it was ‘brought to the notice of ABK that there
are all together 90 accused in the case out of which some are Legislators, high ranking
Officers and kits and kins of legislators. Many of the accused have not been arrested
and those arrested were not required for police remand’.
ABK questioned the “pick and choose” manner used in detention of Apang.
“As confirmed, Apang was served first police summon for appearance on 15-8-2010 which
was deferred to 20-8-2010 on his request. On 20-8-2010 he appeared but M.S.Chauhan
was away in Delhi but the IO gave 64 questionnaires and next date was fixed on 11-09-2010
but in the evening at 6.30 PM he was served with another summon re-fixing the date
on 24-8-2010. In the summon letter it was alleged that he is not co-operating with
the investigation. On 24-8-2010 he appeared with written statements to all the questionnaires
but he was arrested for non admission of the allegations and non cooperation with
the investigation. He was arrested without Arrest warrant and straightway taken to
Lakhimpur” it said.
ABK further noted that before the police remand the prisoners van was brought.
“Chauhan pulled out the driver of Apang and drove the vehicle himself. Inside the
vehicle he showed his service arm to Apang. After police remand he patted Apang on
his shoulder and said " Mr. Apang you are with me for 7 days. You be good to me I
will also be good to you" before pushing him inside the vehicle’ ABK said.
It further said that Apang refused medical cheek up before production but whole day
from 10 AM to 8 PM he was not given food. A senior citizen in such circumstances
complained of chest pain in the evening. Instead of taking him to hospital he was
taken to Naharlagun and Itanagar Police station. Only after civil society intervened,
he was taken to R. K. Mission Hospital, ABK said.
Meanwhile Adi Students Union (AdiSU) Itanagar Unit has rejected the clarification
given by government spokesperson Jarbom Gamlin in which he had said that government
had no role in the arrest of former Chief Minister Gegong Apang.
The Union asked “If state Govt. has no role in investigating the PDS Scam and SP
SIC M S Chauhan is lonely responsible for the arrest of former Chief Minister, then
who were the authority that appointed him. The fact is that controlling authority
is the state govt and MS Chauhan was appointed by the state Govt”. It further said
that Chauhan was handpicked and is a puppet of the present Congress Govt in the state.”
It further said that the manner in which the former Chief Minister was arrested is
“purely politically motivated, pre-planned and smacks of political vendetta”. If
it was not the case why Apang alone was arrested that too without issuing any notice
or arrest warrant, it asked while wanting to know what had happened of those accused
in the PDS scam.
It further said that the Chief Minister has to clarify to the people of the state
on the whole issue while adding that all needed to be treated equally as per the
It further called on the Govt. to immediately suspend and transfer MS Chauhan and
remove him from SIC for misbehaving with the former CM. It alleged that SP was incapable
to handle such a major case. The Union further demanded that PDS scam be handed over
to CBI for fair and independent probe while adding that SIC is not competent authority
to probe the case as it has become an agency to be used by some men in power.

ITANAGAR, Aug 30: All Arunachal Pradesh Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan Teachers’ Association
AASSATA has served 15 days ultimatum to Govt in favour of its demand for regularization
of SSA teachers on seniority basis.

that it would resort to series of pen down strike from Sept 16 if the Govt does not
pay heed to its demand within given period of time.

Services of many contractual appointments under various departments have been regularized
without re-interview, the Association claimed and demanded that services of senior
SSA teachers also be regularized on similar line without further delay. It said mere

Five Arunachalees arrested in Assam, Union demands action
ITANAGAR, Aug 30: The arrest of 5 Arunachalee youth at Chapakhowa in Tinsukia district
of Assam is turning out to be another matter which is souring the already deteriorating
relation between two states. It is to be noted that five youth were arrested yesterday
after they allegedly got into an altercation with locals.
Talking to this daily, Taba Taku, who had contested Lok Sabha and elder brother of
one Taba Tadhe Goyang, an advocate, who is one of the arrestee, explained in detail
the entire sequence of event.
“Case is related to one Arunachalee woman, who had got married to a local man of
Shantipur, Assam. The family feud had led to problem and for that this hearing was
necessitated. Local hearing was conducted at Roing and finally verdict was declared
in favour of Arunachalee woman. After this the boys who had attended the hearing
were returning to Itanagar, when they were attacked at Chowpakhowa,” informed Taba
He further added, “It was a pre-planned attack. After hearing at Roing got over,
they went back to Assam and planned this attack. Mob of more 200 people had attacked
them with stones, catapult and even looted money. In self defence they took out ‘dao’
and tried to scare them away.” The mob damaged two cars and almost tried to lynch
the Arunachalees but timely intervention of Assam police saved their life. Of the
five, two is reportedly seriously injured. “We appreciate Assam police for their
prompt action. We also take opportunity to thank Arunachal police specially our IGP,
Lower Dibang Valley SP and DIGP East Robin Hibu. Further we urge Assam government
to provide enough security as locals may again try to attack the arrested Arunachalee
boys,” said Taku.
Meanwhile taking serious notes on non release of 5 Arunachalee youth at Chowpakhowa,
All Nyishi Students Union (ANSU) demanded state government for their early intervention
in this matter and take up the matter with their Assam counter part. ANSU urged public
and students organizations of Mishing community of the area to allow Arunachlee youth
to be released on bail from police custody for further medical treatment. It has
been reported that locals are pressurizing authority not to give bail to the Arunachalees.
Union has further requested students union and others NGOs of Assam not to indulge
in economic blockade for even a minor incident. Just to popularize their student
unions and NGOs, the small incidents should not be made into state issue, ANSU said.
Recent economic blockade against people of Tirap and Changlang district by Assam
based organizations is not in the spirit of humanity, the Union added.
All Papum Pare District Students Union (APPDSU) has urged Assam authority to immediately
release five Arunachalee youth arrested at Chowpakhawo. Terming their arrest as unfortunate,
APPDSU has called up on Assam authorities to arrest those people who tried to kill
Arunachalee youth in a mob attack. As whole attack was pre-planned, all the people
involve should be arrested and put behind the bar, APPDSU demanded.

Time to stop double standards in the name of people
Ajay K. Tripathy
With the advancement of science & technology, especially the information technology,
now many are not prepared to believe that public memory is short. However, some politicians
need to understand that they can no longer fool people by using that old tactics.
Take the example of congress party’s view on naxalism which is a major challenge
in contemporary society and we find that two senior leaders, Mr. P. Chidambaram and
Mr. Digvijay Singh, have drawn parallel lines by airing the views regarding their
so called solution for the naxalite problem. By doing this they put their party in
safe-side, but not the common people. Likewise, this kind of scenario had been observed
after Babri Masjid demolition or even naming whether former Prime Minister of Home
Minister should be held responsible for allowing Mr. Anderson to leave India when
thousands were suffering in Bhopal.
Now the centre of attention is the rejection of Vedanta’s bauxite mining proposal
at Niyamgiri of Orissa by the Ministry of Environment & Forests (MOEF), Government
of India. In fact, the proposal was submitted by the State Government to the Central
Government which is considered as a formality in a federal system of governance.
And suddenly Jairam Ramesh has become a hero, from zero, which is also recognized
by Rahul Gandhi as he fully took the advantage of present situation and did not lose
time to visit Niyamgiri. After Jairam’s comment at China to seek China’s technical
support for help constructing mega dams at Arunachal Pradesh and mentioning noble
laureate Dr. R. K. Pachauri or his organisation as alarmist for their views on the
melting of Himalayan glaciers; the Minister faced some embarrassment both in Government
& party. Maybe Mr. Ramesh would be a happy man now, as his latest action suits the
congress party to a great extent at least to put the BJD in trouble during next election.
Moreover, Naveen Patnaik’s gamble on rejecting Bt brinjal has virtually become a
boomerang for him which may affect the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Orissa
that are essential for the socio-economic development of State(s) in a globalised
world. As usual Mr. Ramesh formed a committee and took its help to reject bauxite
mining proposal at Orissa; and no one should be surprised if a high-power committee
recommends in favour of Bt brinjal cultivation in India in near future.
The fact of the matter is that an intelligent Minister knows how to get the things
done through committees. Then what about the eight-member expert committee of IIT
Guwahati, Dibrugad university and Guwahati university that categorically recommends
to reduce the height of mega dam which is likely to be constructed in Assam and Arunachal
Pradesh border? Why the same minister informed the Rajya Sabha recently "I can't
become the minister to stop all projects."? Why the MOEF is not accepting the protests
against mega dams seriously when they take place in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh?
More interestingly why Mr. J. B. Pattnaik, present Assam Governor & former Orissa
Chief Minster, is silent?. Can’t Mr. Pattnaik convince Mr. Ramesh to adopt the same
formula as North East is more vulnerable to earthquake, floods, landslide, cloudburst,
etc.? Few activists may be happy now over the Vedanta-mining verdict of MOEF, however,
what has happened to the movements led by Baba Amte, Medha Patkar, Sunderlal Bahuguna,
etc. against the failure of the same ministry to protect the rights of indigenous
and displaced people?
No one should be surprised if one day Mukesh Ambani, or his close companies, gets
the nod of union government for bauxite mining at Niyamgiri, Orissa. In fact, the
internal chemistry of some industrialists and politicians are better than water &
milk. Me and Dr. N. C. Saxena were at Kathmandu in November, 2009 to participate
in a workshop that was organized by the Asian Development Bank and few UN agencies;
so, next time when I would meet him I may put few questions amidst all the things
happening after the MOEF accepted the four-member committee’s report which Dr. Saxena
chaired. I may ask him is he satisfied with the work done by the Governments of different
parties to help protect the interests of the tribes in and around Niyamgiri? Why
Kalahandi, Bolangir & Koraput (KBK) region of Orissa is still considered as one of
the very backward pockets in country? What would happen to the common people in upper
Assam as well as Adi, Nyishi, Monpa, Apatani, Galo, Mishmi, Tagin and several other
tribes of Arunachal Pradesh once the mega dams are built on Siang, Subansiri, Lohit
and Kameng rivers which are the tributaries of mighty Brahmaputra? (The contributor
