ANSU demands proper policy to minimize road blockage & power failure
ITANAGAR, Aug 6: The All Nyishi Students Union (ANSU) implored the State government
to take necessary steps to solve the constant road blockage and power failure in
the State’s Capital Itanagar and its vicinity.
In a mailed press release, ANSU general secretary Arjun Panye said, “The constant
road blockage and power failure have put the life of people of Capital Complex in
utter confusion and disorder. The prolonged rains in the last few weeks have unleashed
a trail of destruction in every nook and corner of the State’s capital and its vicinity.
NH 52A- the lifeline, has been washed away at many points snapping the traffic movement.
Many innocent lives have been lost during trail. Sadly, the authority is simply putting
the blame on nature (rain).”
Natural calamities are beyond our control but we all know which month we receive
maximum rainfall in our State. If we take preventive measures, loss of properties
and human life can be assuaged at the maximum, he said.
Stringent action should be taken against those who illegally and randomly indulge
in earth cutting compromising the life and property of the public, Panye said and
described the district administration a tiger in paper only.
It is high time that Government come out with a proper policy to do away with the
constant road blockage and power failure.
The construction of road should be handed over to BRTF for quality. Further, an alternate
road should also be constructed from Naharlagin to Itanagar, he suggested.

people of the capital complex, particularly after nature’s fury which caused severe

steps for renovation of roads, proper supply of drinking water and electricity respectively.

said that the maximum road damages in the Capital region are caused by earth cutting.
The common people are facing lot of problems due to negligence of a few persons,
the union said adding that the PWD alone should not be blamed for the present condition
of the road.

clear the reported road blockade on Doimuk-Sagalee road.

Home Minister came, saw and conquered
By Dehang Bosai
The recent visit of Home Minister Takar Marde to insurgency-hit Tirap district was
a watershed in the chequered history of the backward district. The visit was not
a mere routine and cosmetic one that normally associates with VVIP visit.
During his extensive tour from July 26 to 30, the Home Minister visited the trouble-prone
tri-junction Kanubari that shares borders with Assam and Nagaland, remote and far-flung
circle headquarters, Pongchau, Wakka, Lazu where the ultras call the shots and the
district headquarters, Khonsa which was in the news for kidnappings, fratricidal
killings and bloody turf war between the two warring factions of NSCN.
He also visited Deomali, the place where former young MP Wangcha Rajkumar was assassinated
in 2007. Incidentally, the public meeting was held in the very club where late Rajkumar
was gunned down in cold blood. The Home Minister’s visit to Ranglua and Kamku –Russa
wherein a serious boundary dispute erupted between the Assamese and the Wanchos last
year in which an innocent Wancho was killed by Assam police in an unprovoked firing,
was welcomed and appreciated by the villagers who lived in constant fear as Assam
side had always adopted an aggressive posture. His visit, especially to the interior
and border areas, undoubtedly provided a ‘healing touch’ that Tirap badly needed.
Many Home Ministers had come and gone before Takar Marde without leaving any footprints
on the sands of time neither in words or deeds. But the present Home Minister had
not only rekindled the hopes and aspirations of the people but has also endeared
the present State Government to the people. Such euphoria created by Marde’s visit
was missing during the visit of former Home Ministers.
Of course, Union Home Minter P Chidambaram’s visit to Khonsa in 2010 yielded some
positive dividends. Today, people of all ages in Tirap cannot stop eulogizing Home
Mister Marde for the official announcement he made in all the public meetings he
addressed regarding the generous Home Ministry’s packages that include a mass Police
recruitment in various categories of posts and 80 crore central grant for establishment
of new Police stations, up-gradation of existing ones and creation of infrastructure
exclusively for the disturbed Tirap and Changlang districts.
These are a real windfall for these backward districts. These two districts need
a fillip like this to enable them catch up with the other more developed districts
of the state. In fact, this has come as a God-send opportunity for the restive youth
to engage themselves gainfully. The Home Minister’s gift to people of Tirap and Changlang
has brought rare smiles and cheers especially to the faces to the youth who can be
seen grinning from ear to ear. Why not ? After all, this gesture of the Government
will go a long way in weaning away the disgruntled and misguided youth from going
astray. The people of other districts should welcome and laud the sympathetic action
initiated by the Government. They must feel that the problem of Tirap and Changlang
is a problem of Arunachal. The onerous onus is on all the Arunachalees to help the
people of Tirap and Changlang live a life of dignity and honour in their own land.
No doubt, other districts of the state are also facing a plethora of problems but
their problems can, in no way, be equated with the peculiar and serious problems
these two districts have unfortunately been enduring for long, helplessly.
It is needless to repeat here that insurgency is a scourge for any society. Wherever,
there is insurgency in any form, developmental activities come to a screeching halt
because the ultras tend to force the ideologies and orders into unwilling ears, more
often than not using violent means. In such an ambience young people are susceptible
to the tactics and guerrilla war-fare the ultras apply to woo the youth. As of now,
peace is still a wild goose chase in Tirap. However, let us not expect an immediate
solution to this vexed insurgency problem.
Our Home Minister and the Government have no magic wand to do away with the problems
Tirap has been living with for years. Peace is sine qua non for development. Our
Government should spare no effort to create a conducive atmosphere for uninterrupted
deployment in the district.
Today the poor villagers are sandwiched between the ultras and security forces. They
are a confused lot and are reticent. The safest line they parrot whenever they are
asked about the movement of the ultras is, “I have not seen, not heard and don’t
know anything.” Anybody in their place will do the same. There is no protection for
them. They are sitting ducks for the ultras. We must have sympathy for them. They
are ignorant and innocent and so their peccadilloes if any should be overlooked by
the law-enforcing agencies. Most of the villagers don not know what NSCN(IM) or NSCN(K)
means, leave alone their motives and ideologies. They reluctantly carry out the orders
of the trigger-happy strangers not out of love but out of fear.
Now, some one may ask why they don’t inform the security forces?. The answer lies
in the question itself. Scores of precious lives have been lost for daring to defy
the orders of the ultras. Now, was there anybody who came forward to save them? It
is easier said than done. Insurgency anywhere is a complex issue. So it has to be
dealt with utmost care, considering the safety and security of the people who have
nothing to do with the ideologies of the ultras. As I said a long time ago in one
of my articles that insurgency in Tirap is because of its proximity with Janta-ruled
Myanmar and insurgency-infested Nagaland. But unfortunately today, the insurgents
have started interfering in all the matters in Tirap and they have penetrated deep
inside the social milieu, thereby complicating the issue both for the people and
In the light of the saga of never ending insurgency- related tragic incidents the
innocent people have been witnessing, the recent Home Minister’s extensive tour to
the district has come like a breathe of fresh air bringing along with it renewed
hopes for the people.
Today, people everywhere in Tirap are talking about the Home Minister’s meaningful
visit not only in terms of the Home Ministry’s packages he had announced but for
the seriousness with which the State Government has started addressing the insurgency
problem. Home Minister Takar Marde is today no less than a messiah for the ordinary
Tirap’s people. Indeed, he came, he saw and he conquered the hearts of the people.
“May he succeed in his mission” is the prayer in everybody’s lips. (The writer can

ABSU’s demand for revocation of DC’s transfer order supported
ITANAGAR, Aug 6: All East Siang District Students’ Union (AESDSU) has strongly supported
the 24-hr bandh call given by All Bogong Students Union (ABSU) demanding revocation
of the transfer of present East Siang deputy commissioner Onit Panyang.
Taking strong exception to the transfer order of the DC in the midst of the eviction
drive, AESDSU said that present eviction drive in Pasighat township is legitimate
and development friendly step on the part of the administration.
The transfer of present Deputy Commissioner has come up as a great shock for the
people of Pasighat which left us with no option but to protest, AESDSU said.
Pasighat, which is one of the oldest towns of the state, is under serious threat
from illegal land occupants. The massive land grabbing by some individuals has demoralized
the development process of the township, the students union said and described the
act of the state Government very unfortunate and a politically hatched game to derail
the development process of Pasighat township.
The Union felt that the revocation of transfer of the present incumbent Onit Panyang
would facilitate more peace and development in Pasighat township.
The Union also urged Education Minister Bosiram Siram to come clear in this matter.
