On his maiden visit to the circle administrative centre bordering Dhemaji district of Assam, Tuki assured all out assistance in infrastructure development and welfare of the people of the area.

The Circle Office and staff quarters constructed on a hillock could not be connected with water supply since last 16 years and therefore remained almost abandoned. People, through a public memorandum, had pleaded the Chief Minister to sanction funds for shifting of the offices to the foothills.

On the other hand, a police station had been recently sanctioned in the area by the state government. Though land for establishment of the same has been earmarked by the administration construction works are yet to start.

Kangku in Likabali Sub-Division is a foothill region with 26 notified villages along the Arunachal-Assam boundary. Despite its nearness to Assam the region is yet to be connected by a road from Likabali interlinking all the villages within the territory of Arunachal Pradesh.

Addressing a huge gathering, Tuki informed that the road linking Likabali, Kangku and Durpai has been proposed under PMGSY. He said the Government has already submitted the project costing Rs 47 crore to the concerned ministry and earnestly pursuing for its sanction.

Moving around the school premises, he expressed surprise over the dilapidated condition of the school building. Saddened that the future generation of the state were studying in such a dilapidated building, he assured a grant of Rs 10 lakhs immediately for renovation works. He called upon the people to own responsibility of government property as their own and maintain the same.

“People will come and people will go but these assets should be maintained forever,” he said.

To the plea for flood protection works, he assured Rs 20 lakhs in the first phase so that the works to save the school compound could be started immediately. He also assured to discuss and consider the trifurcation of the 9-Likabali-Kangku anchal samity as requested by panchayat leaders of the area.

Tuki called upon the people to maintain brotherly relations with neighboring Assam and maintain the age-old cordial relations.

“Assam-Arunachal…we are brothers. In fact the whole of North East is one. We have to develop as one unit through helping each other, maintaining peace and harmony,” he said in chaste Assamese to the convenience of a large section of people gathered from the other side of the boundary.

The Chief Minister was accompanied by Parliamentary Secretaries Gojen Gadi and Padi Richo and State Youth Congress Vice President Nyamar Karbak.

Earlier, on their landing at the make-shift helipad in the school compound, the Chief Minister’s entourage was given a traditional reception by hundreds of women dancing Ponung.

Govt, market committees oppose bandh

ITANAGAR, Dec 15: Taking serious note of the 36 hours capital bandh call proposed by All Arunachal Pradesh Youth Organization (AAPYO) from Dec 17 on the airport issue, the state Govt today directed all the commissioners/secretaries to ensure that all the offices within their  jurisdiction  remain open as usual with 100 per cent attendance on the bandh days.  Govt staff if found absent without prior permission during bandh  days would face strict disciplinary action, an official release said. All the state transport buses will ply as usual and all Govt school and other establishment like  hospitable and health centre,   anganwadi centre etc shall remain fully function, the release said.

Earlier yesterday,  office bearers of the Bazaar Welfare Committees, transport federation/ association and petrol depot association  in a meeting conveyed by Capital DC unanimously decided that  all the business establishments and Petrol Pumps in Capital Complex would remain open and vehicles keep ply on the road as usual during the proposed 36 hours capital bandh on Dec 17.   The members present in the meeting were also informed about the security measures taken by the District Administration and Police authority, according to an official release. City SP Surendra Kumar, ADC Bokar Basar and  other Govt officers were present in the meeting. The office bearers of all Market Welfare Associations of capital complex have agreed to cooperate the District Administration and requested for sufficient security to be provided during the bandh, the release said.

 Meanwhile, opposing the All Arunachal Pradesh Youth Organization’s 36 hours capital bandh  from Dec 17, Itanagar Market Welfare Association (IMWA) and Naharlagun Bazar Welfare Committee (NBWC) today asked its business community and shopkeepers to keep open  their shops during the bandh hours since the bandh has been declared illegal by the district administration.  

The bandh calls badly affect the normal life, particularly the daily wage earner, business community and emergency patients,   both IMWA  and  NBWC said in separate  press releases.

Meanwhile, the IMWA warned the shopkeepers  of  stern action if  they fail to comply with  the  order of the market body. It also requested the authority to deploy adequate security forces to thwart any untoward incident during bandh.

Describing the proposed 36 hours capital bandh call as uncalled for and it is without having valid issues on state interest,  the Arunachal Pradesh Youth Congress (APYC)  today urged people of Capital Complex to co-operate with the administration to defy the bandh.  “Few misguided individuals cannot dictate the popularly mandated Government on any of the State  issues’, the APYC said adding since the construction of airport is a State’s ambitious project, it cannot be dictated.

Pointing out the heavy financial loss of both business community and state Govt during bandh, the APYC appeals the agitating organization to refrain from ‘unnecessary interruption’ and pressure tactics on Govt policies. APYC also urged the Airport Authority of India to expedite the construction of ambitious Airport project at the earliest.  



AASSAC demands early establishment of Sainik School in Arunachal

Gyati Kacho

ITANAGAR, Dec 15: Reiterating the need to come up with a separate Sainik School for the state, the Alumni Association of Sainik Schools, Arunachal Chapter (AASSAC) made a fervent appeal to the state Govt. to take steps to establish the school at the earliest in the interest of children of Arunachal Pradesh preferring to take up armed forces as their career.  

Highlighting various hardships faced by parents including entailing substantial expenses to educate their children in other Sainik Schools in the North East, AASSAC appealed the state govt. to take up the matter in right earnest and set up the school preferably in a cold and hilly area like Ziro, West Kameng or Tawang for better training of the cadets and ensuring their success in entry to National Defence Academy.

Drawing out an anomaly in the admission prospectus issued by Sainik School Punglaw, Nagaland where the seats are reserved for cadets of Arunachal Pradesh, AASSAC pointed out that there was a discrepancy in the age factor for cadets from domicile of Arunachal Pradesh compared to other cadets from the northeast. This factor was depriving many aspiring cadets to try their luck in the entrance examination of the school. During the day-long deliberation at a city based hotel here today, members discussed in threadbare several issues pertaining to Sainik School and its related social welfare activities, setting up of a Sainik Welfare Board and welfare measures for ex-servicemen, framing of by-laws for the association among others.
