Departments urged to ensure maximum revenue collection

the state’s coffer.
“Without revenue it is impossible for us to give good and pro-development governance
to the people,” he said in his concluding remarks of the 2-day conference of Deputy
Commissioners, Superintendents of Police and Head of Departments here this evening.
Organized by the department of General Administration (GA) and District Administration
(DA), the 2-day conference, which witnessed a record participation and brainstorming
sessions, concluded today at Banquet Hall. The conference was yesterday inaugurated
by Governor Gen J J Singh in presence of the Chief Minister, Cabinet Ministers and
Tuki, who attended and joined each of the sessions all through the two days, said
that the district administrations and Head of Departments should ensure maximization
of revenue collection while simultaneously seal all means of leakages.
“It may be difficult task but not impossible. If we tighten up our belts, we will
see results in a couple of years. So let’s start working from tomorrow,” he advised.
The Chief Minister also beckoned the officials to focus particularly on education
and health sectors. He said people, especially in rural areas, are being deprived
of quality services and asked for plans to revamp these two sectors.
Especially concerned about defunct and non-performing schools, he suggested that
DCs may identify such schools so that these can be handed over to competent NGOs
with assistance from the government to run them.
Tuki also suggested the DCs to streamline issuance of gun licenses, to ban hunting,
illegal timber felling and fishing by blasting and poisoning, create awareness against
jhum cultivation and maintain cordial relation with their counterparts in neighboring
Another important suggestion he made was that setting up of mobile offices from time
to time at places where there is no administrative offices so that issues, grievances
and official works of the people could be resolved on the spot.
“People in rural areas may find it difficult to come to headquarters for official
works. Why don’t you take your offices to them at their place?” he suggested.

government employees, revenue generation, self-employment and skill development programmes,
CM’s Agriculture Mechanization Programme, CM’s Health Insurance Scheme for BPL families,
law and order, progress of activities under the PM’s Package, ILP, e-governance,

that initially 10 districts had been enlisted for the scheme, the CM assured to take
up the matter for the rest 7 districts. The CM further asked all the officers present

Delhi with the Supreme Court of India regarding 24th general conference cum election
of AAPSU, Tatung cautioned the Govt not to undermine AAPSU. He flayed the state
Govt for not informing AAPSU about the SC petition at the earliest despite the fact
that the Chief Secretary’s office had received the FAX copy of the order on Nov 24,
26 and 29 last. While urging the state Govt to verify the antecedents of Agarwal,
Tatung hoped that the new AAPSU team would fight against the petition filed at

According to latest World Development report brought out by the World Bank India's
medium-size businesses are not growing and the share of informal workers in organized
firms is up from 32 per cent in 2000 to 68 per cent in 2010. A majority of firms
are born small but in India they also tend to stay small, the report said adding
in India, the productivity of a 35 year-old firm merely doubles and its headcount
actually falls by a fourth. As a result, there is a “missing middle” of medium-sized
The report also highlights how the world of work is rapidly evolving. Demographic
shifts, technological progress and lasting effects of the international financial
crisis are reshaping the employment landscape in countries around the world.
Calling for a strong urbanisation policy for India for creating better jobs, the
report also emphasized the need for labour policies that were not too stringent.
With the working age population increasing by 7 million people each year in India,
accelerating urban development and increasing labor flexibility are key to creating
jobs in more productive activities, thus sustaining growth and reducing poverty,

Vibrant cities and economic clusters can invigorate firm dynamics, help fill the
missing middle and result in more productive jobs.
Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I would like to clarify in regards to
the letter published by the outgoing Executive team headed by the Tojum Poyom, Ringu
Kuku, Nabam Tamar and Debia Muj on 18th Dec 2012. Undersigned on behalf of the head
of apex students organization of the state (AAPSU) as a whole would like to state
that the Reader Forum article published by your daily is baseless and without any
constitutional provision from the union constitution. I am also made to believe that
some of the names of my executive members were used without their consent. It is
well known that under the provision of the AAPSU Constitution the total elected Executive
members and federal organs are 46(Forty Six) members. But few members wrote baseless
letter by violating Constitution of AAPSU.
I would like to inform everyone that I as head of AAPSU had strictly maintained the
constitution of AAPSU. As per the provision of the Union Constitution I abided the
constitution and preamble of the union, adopted on 15th October 1967, we do hereby
ORDAIN, ADOPT, ENACT and GIVE to OURSELVES THIS CONSTITUTION. As a head of the Union,
I had never gone beyond the constitution of the AAPSU and till date I always go with
the constitution of the AAPSU. The AAPSU is the not private property of any individual,
I always respect the provision of the union Constitution, and nobody is the above
the constitution of AAPSU, nobody is the above the law. So I always go with the principle
of the rule of law. I also appeal all the candidates to remember AAPSU Martyrs like
Kipa Kache, Tabom Bam, Khyoda Dolo and many other student activists who sacrificed
their life for cause of AAPSU and for welfare of tribal community of state.
I had a joint press conference with the Interim committee recently where everything
was cleared. The election part of 24th General conference cum election to be held
at DNGC College from 21st to 24th Dec 2012 is being held as per rule of law and strict
abides the constitution of the AAPSU. Therefore, I on behalf of the rest of 46 (Forty
Six) executive members and executive organ, term the article published in reader
forum column of your daily as baseless.
I appeal all the primary members and federal members of the AAPSU institution Viz:
DSU, BSU, Postgraduate students, college students Union and School Students Union
to not get confused on scheduled of election process. As per article 21-clause C
of AAPSU constitution, I had appointed election commissioner to hold the election
process at DNG College, Itanagar from 21st of December. I would like to clarify that
entire process for election has been done under purview of AAPSU constitution. I
believe that nobody is above the constitution which was framed by our past great
AAPSU leaders and therefore allegation of me going against AAPSU interest is deeply
Lastly I request all the community Based students Organization/ District Students
unions to maintain the principle of peaceful harmonies and co existence in relation
to all tribes of Arunachal as one Arunachalee.

Thanking your Daily in heaps and bounds, for abridging and letting the Mango People
alias the Poor Farmers of East, West and Upper Siang district, voice out and let
reach their cry to the concerned authorities and individuals through your esteemed
Readers Column. I would further more like to give certain clarification to the "Clarification
to open letter to PWD & Finance Minister" by the Executive Engineer, Pasighat Highway
Division, PWD Pasighat published in your daily on 15th December.
How easily have you (most respected Executive Engineer, Highway PWD, Pasighat Division)
thrown off your responsibility to Delhi MoRTH for maintaining the Pasighat Pangin
Road and especially for maintaining the breached Wing walls of Sideng Bridge. It
is a point to be pondered and even after best attempt, could not digest and accept
that explanation in all means and ways.
How callously you have intended to say and write on record that, Minister PWD & Finance
does not have the liability to look after the welfare of the poor people of the state!!!
How abruptly you have tried to imprint that even if the said road is not under the
control of the Minister PWD & Finance, Minister has sympathized upon us and released
the sanctions for maintaining the same bridge. But, I suppose, we the people are
not asking for any illegitimate favours and sympathy from anyone or even from the
supreme God. If it's the reason for the sanctioning of the funds for the maintenance
of the bridge, we would say “Please do keep your sympathy and favours with you",
because, we are demanding our own rights and as per rules the National Highway should
be maintained in a way that heavy vehicles can ply throughout the year. But, we have
been deprived off that facility since last six months, wherein only VIP SUVs and
Small cars only can pass through the NH 229, depriving buses and trucks, the common
transport of the Mango People. What we are asking for is not a VIP road, but a common
What use will it be, this season for the road to be open to common man transports
after the harvests are over? After the crops have rotted away just like that? After
the Agriculture Market Produce Committee (APMC) have taxed us unnecessarily and meaninglessly
without any services or a minimum support price? What use and benefit will it be,
after all the middle men the so called "dalals" or agents have sucked our blood and
sweat without any sweating and hard work?
What I would really want to suggest to Minister PWD & Finance by an appeal and to
redress our grievances in the easiest and fastest way is that, as your benign self
always proclaims that this Government is a People First Government, and in order
to practically prove your slogan, we the Poor Farmers of East, West and Upper Siang
do welcome you to visit some of the Agriculture and Horticulture Farms and Gardens
by travelling in a Common man's Transport, either in a Truck, a Tractor or a Bus.
And I bet, the concerned departments will surely see to it that the Bridge is Communicable
by that Aam Admi transport even in a single day.
So, Minister, we are your people and we do believe in your words that you will deliver
to prove your people first slogan and see to it that people are really benefited
first and encouraged to pursue further more into growing Cash crops and earn more.
In order to solve the long pending woes of the poor farmers, we really welcome you
to our farm and gardens by travelling on a APST Bus or a Truck. Because we have seen
Madam Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi also travel in buses (Aam Admi transports) and
both of them always profess austerity and shout out loud "Hamare Haath AAM ADMI ke
Saath". Sir, we sincerely believe that, your one visit to any Garden just above Sideng
river on a public transport will let the respected Executive Engineer, Highway, PWD,
Pasighat division, camp at Sideng Bridge and see to it that the wing walls are restored
in a day or two and that will be really helpful in letting us earn a Re. 1/- (Rupee
One) more on a Kilo of Ginger and a piece of Orange. We, prostrate before minister
with folded hands to accept our invitation which will bring us joy and even profits
for our hard works by a rupee more.
On behalf of all Farmers of East, West and Upper Siang.
Niba Hospital offers better treatment than outside hospital
Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I would like to ventilate few grievances
of those Arunachalees, who are suffering from ailments like back pain, shoulder
pain, leg pain etc. I am one of the such back pain patient since last many years
and my doctor from GMCH and GNRC, Guwahati has referred me to CMC Vellore or Apolo
Hospital Delhi, for further treatment. Before leaving to Vellore, once I visited
at Niba hospital, Pappu Nalah for counseling and doctor advised me to take physiotherapy
counseling in same Hospital. Now I am doing daily exercise under the guidance of
few qualified physiotherapy Doctors at Niba hospital. My health has improved tremendously
after a weeklong treatment. As per my experience "Niba hospital located at Pappu
Nallah in between the twin beautiful city of Naharlagun and Itanagar is one of the
best hospitals in India where all treatment facilities are available and cost of
treatment are also very cheap. Any poor person can bear the treatment and will save
money from going to outside places like Apolo Delhi, CMC, and Vellore. Please don't
waste your time and money. Every patient needs better treatment for their health,
not the name of the reputed Hospital and Doctors which will help them. Thanks to
Niba Hospital Authority and my Doctors.
AAPSU should be for genuine students
Through your esteemed daily, I on behalf of the student community of Arunachal Pradesh
would like to raise few questions regarding the ongoing All Arunachal Pradesh Students
Union (AAPSU) conference & election.
The said election is meant to be a student’s election which should have been very
calm and peace in its conduct but here it is opposite. Even the assembly election
in our state is being conducted very peacefully. My next question is, are they (candidates)
really the representatives of the student body because in my knowledge and from the
hoarding advertisements I came to know few of them. Many candidates are married and
having children, moreover few of them may be having more than one wives and it is
shocking to know that few candidates have just joined various courses simply to be
called student and few of them were employed under Arunachal Pradesh Govt. or others
and just to contest they resigned temporarily or permanently. In my view there must
be age limit for all the candidates so that a genuine student can take up the charge
and serve the student community.
Miti Hunn, Itanagar
In the news item of Arunachal Times dated 18.12.2012 under the headline “BBK CONVENTION
CONCLUDES” in page no 3, my name has been mentioned with designation as Chairman
of Adi Ao Tosina Kebang. I would like to clarify that I am not holding any such portfolio
and there is no any such organization exists in Adi Community. However, I earlier
held the portfolio of Secretary General of Adi Baané Kébang, being the founder Secretary
of Adi Baané Kébang. Therefore, I would like to clarify the said news item at earliest
to avoid any controversy within the community.
