the transfer order issued to Deputy Commissioner Onit Panyang.
Criticizing the Government for transferring the DC, who had courageously started
the much awaited eviction drive against Government land encroachers in Pasighat town,
AAYA in a release said that he should not be transferred at this juncture and let
him complete the eviction drive.
The encroachers have left no space for any developmental packages to be started at
Pasighat. All the Govt. land donated by the indigenous people of Bogong Banggo has
been occupied illegally by few officer and public, it said.
AAYA said that the Chief Secretary should initiate legal action against those erring
officials, who being government servants, have intimidated to occupy public land
illegally, as the names of those officers are with the deputy commissioner’s office.
It also expressed shocked to see that all the illegally occupied plots are well
electrified and connected with proper water supply. It questioned the DC, Executive
Engineer Power(Electrical), Executive Engineer PHED, Pasighat division that under
what schemes/project the essential services to the illegal occupants have been provided?

given exemplary punishments by the Government of Arunachal Pradesh so that no officer

being faced by the students.
Tana Tamar highlighted the problems of the students due to lack of infrastructure
like insufficient class rooms. He said sometimes the students had to come out from
the class as the classrooms can not accommodate all the students. Out of 380 students,
only 100/150 students attend classes due to shortage of classrooms which ultimately
hampers the academic career of the students. The need of the hour is to increase
the number of class rooms and post additional subject teachers. Tamar also highlighted
the school land encroachment problems due to which the school land is being reduced
every year and the accommodation problems of the teachers.
The officials team after visiting the school realized the need of proper and sufficient
infrastructure to meet the growing numbers of students in the school and assured
the school authority to take up the matter at the appropriate level, the union said.

FSD opposes draft land acquisition, RR Bill-2011
ITANAGAR, Aug 2: Forum for Siang Dialogue (FSD) has vehemently opposed the Draft
Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Bill 2011, which ‘favours companies,
legitimizes private acquisition and ignores community concerns.’
The proposed draft is not a comprehensive one but mere combination of the earlier
proposed two bills, it focuses only on one concern which is to facilitate land acquisition
and serve the land needs of private and public corporations and facilitate urbanization
as ‘inevitable,’ the FSD said in a release and demanded for enactment of a Comprehensive
Development Planning Act which will protect the land, resource and livelihood rights
of the communities.
There is no concerted attempt to fulfill the task of land reforms and protect the
land and livelihood rights of the communities across the country, FSD said. The current
draft of the Bill allows state governments to acquire land for private projects -
provided that 80 per cent of the affected people consent to the project.
“Proposed provision of consent of the 80 per cent project affected people is required
only wherever the private entities are involved in the process of acquisition whereas
all the acquisitions for the government requires no such consent, keeping intact
the ‘eminent domain’ principle of the state,” FSD said.
The Bill provides the much needed legitimacy for the acquisitions for the private
companies, since today only by violating the existing Land Acquisition Act 1894 State
governments could acquire land in POSCO, Noida, Dibang Project in Roing and eventually
eyeing for the 2700MW Lower Siang Hydro Electric Project (LSHEP) or many other places
for the private Dam Developers in Arunachal Pradesh.
“Unless and until the Bill tries to address these concerns and take into account
the Constitutional status of Gram Sabhas, Block Sabhas (Banggo) / Municipalities
under the 73rd and 74th Constitutional Amendments which mandate the formulation of
district and metropolitan level development plans for public purpose by them, the
Bill itself will serve no real ‘public purpose’, it said.
The Bill is high on rhetoric but low on content and is many steps backward in the
overall debate over the land conflicts in the country today. It will in no way quell
the ongoing conflicts across the country, armed or otherwise; but will surely facilitate
acquisitions in any of the States in India and Arunachal Pradesh being one of the
states in India, promote Money and Power Hungry, Dam Builders,real estate and make
corporations rich, happy and unruly.
“Although the Bill contains some necessary provisions such as “under no circumstances
should multi-cropped, irrigated land be acquired”, it does not address the challenge
of large scale diversion of agricultural land across the country for non-agricultural
purposes and the consequent impact on the nation’s food security and pauperization
FSD, meanwhile, appealed to State Government, especially the Pollution Control Board,
not to announce or invite any Public Hearing for any Dam/Project in the state till
the Govt. of India enacts a competent and new Land Acquisition Act along with Relief
and Rehabilitation package.

of the legislators & public leaders. The movement could be kept up only by he generosity
of donors like the Surajmal Jalan Charitable Trust, Dibrugarh, which has been supporting

The mChip is a cheap and portable device to diagnose infections through speedy blood
tests. This will expedite detection and treatment of HIV and syphilis in remote areas,
says a scientific study.
The mChip is about the size of a credit card and can diagnose infections within minutes,
according to a study in the journal Nature Medicine.
Prototype tests for diseases such as HIV and syphilis in Rwanda showed almost 100%
accuracy, it said.
The US-developed device has a projected cost of $1 (60p). This would make it much
cheaper than the lab-based tests currently used.
The plastic chip contains 10 detection zones, and can test for multiple diseases
with only a pinprick of blood.
Results can be seen with the naked eye or with a low-cost detector.
Hundreds of tests using a prototype of the device were carried out in Kigali, Rwanda.
They showed 95% accuracy for HIV and 76% accuracy for syphilis, the study says.
Researchers hope to use the mChip to help increase testing of sexually-transmitted
diseases (STDs) in pregnant women, particularly in Africa.
Appeal for immediate advertisement
Everybody knows that senior teachers are badly needed in all the higher secondary
schools of the state because of newly up-gradation of some secondary schools. Many
of the higher secondary schools in the state are running by SSA (JT) due to shortage
of Senior Teachers in all subjects. But concern authorities keep blank for the geography
and commerce subjects in its previous advertisement while there are 14 numbers of
vacancies still remaining to be advertised. One wonders, why the authorities are
overlooking the PG with B Ed holders of Geography and Commerce subjects. Are we not
qualified for that post?
The authorities told us that they have already appointed in 8-9 and 5-6 PGT (ST)
posts for geography and commerce subject respectively in 2009-10 without conducting
interview against the 100 numbers of PGT (ST) posts before Cabinet approval. It's
a confusing appointment procedure as the aspirant candidates were appointed before
cabinet approval of the posts.
Therefore, I on behalf of depressed PG with B.Ed holders of both subjects strongly
appeal the concern authorities to immediately re-advertise for both the subjects
against remaining 14 numbers of vacancies.
