New Delhi, Feb 2: Members of All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union (AAPSU) met the
Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, here on Wednesday to discuss the matter of stapled
visa being issued by China.
"We told the Prime Minister about the issue of stapled visa. We are Indians, then
why are we being given stapled visas. So, we met the Prime Minister regarding this
issue and said if we (Arunachal Pradesh) are being given stapled visa, then the Chinese
people should also be given stapled visa," AAPSU President Takam Tatung told reporters
after the meeting.
Tatung further noted that they have also asked Prime Minister to seal the borders
with China, Myanmar, and Bhutan, as the boundaries are vulnerable to external forces,
who may seek refuge in Arunachal Pradesh and other areas of northeastern India.
He said that the Prime Minister had promised to make necessary changes in the foreign
"Prime Minister said that the government would make the necessary changes in the
foreign policy. But we said that after the 1962 war, the Indian Government has not
looked after Arunachal Pradesh and not made a proper policy and that is why China
has made a lobby for us," said Tatung.
"We have a common border with China, Myanmar and Bhutan, so we have also asked them
to seal the border security. When they have sealed the small boundary border with
Bangladesh, then why haven't they sealed the border that Arunachal Pradesh shares
with the other three countries," he added.
Takam Tatung also mentioned that they had sought from the Prime Minster a formula
for speedy and proper implementation of development projects in the remote and isolated
regions of Arunachal Pradesh.
Earlier on January 13, India reacted strongly, saying that the issuing of stapled
visas by China to athletes from Arunachal Pradesh is not acceptable.
"Issuing of stapled visa is not acceptable to the Government of India and we have
already conveyed it to China," said Defence Minister A K Antony. It may be mentioned
that Vishal Nabam, now advisor to state Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu, had visited
China on a month-long tourist visa in 2006. This clearly indicates that China has
expanded its staple visa regime to Arunachal Pradesh.
Though Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and Dr. Singh had discussed the complex relations
between the two Asian giants at a time when both are "celebrating 60 years of diplomatic
ties", the stapled visa issue did not figure in the official talks.
Chinese territorial claims over Arunachal Pradesh-a key component of the longstanding
boundary dispute with India-had come in the way of bilateral interactions, in 2007
with China denying visa to senior IAS officer Ganesh Koyu, who was a member of 107
strong IAS officers" team on a management programme to China.
The study visit to Beijing and Shanghai, part of a programme to learn more about
Chinese economic growth and policies, was cancelled because of Beijing"s refusal
to grant visa to Koyu hailing from Arunachal Pradesh. The official trip was canceled
at the intervention of Prime Minister.
Development has not reached the

ration card is yet to reach the majority in some states, under which they are entitled
to get 35 kg rice.

the rise of the Maoist insurgency.
''Adequate compensation and jobs should be made available to the displaced communities,''
The ABAVP president further informed that it would take up with the government to
create a committee for looking into the interests of tribals of the North East.
''It is our responsibility to preserve and protect the indigenous tribal culture
which is facing a threat due to influence of other alien culture,'' he pointed out.

institution for working for the betterment of orphan and destitute women beside other
social welfare activities.

the people affected by the eviction drive carried out by the district administration,
has appealed to the State Government to provide shelter to those affected families
According to a release by the Church Committee, those families, who have been rendered
homeless after the eviction drive, have been spending sleepless night under the open
sky since their dwelling houses were either grounded or damaged during the eviction
drive. Describing the eviction drive illegal, the committee alleged that the district
authority did not circulate any prior notice to all the residents regarding the eviction
drive. Whoever received such notice from the authority also alleged that the eviction
drive has been carried out before expiry of the given time. Further, there should
be a demarcation between Govt. and private land, it said. The Church Committee appealed
to various NGOs, senior citizens and social leaders to support the cause and help
for immediate rehabilitation of the affected families.

V and they are now reluctant to go back to their respective hostel fearing police
harassment and any kind of reprimand from teachers and management," the meeting observed.

This is in response to one Angel Tamut letter ‘Governed by Political Opportunity’
published on Jan 31 questioning Tabin Taki for quitting NCP and joining BJP.
I being a concerned citizen of 35th Panging constituency nullify such callous writing
under the pressure of some vested leaders because of their political insecurity.
Why the writer did not give his or her real name?
The writer is true that in our country switching of political allegiance by cheap
political leaders has become a routine affair but where was the writer when the leaders
of same constituency have merged to INC from BJP for gaining milestones. Wasn’t that
a political indiscipline? Why not the political observer of Panging Boleng commented
then? Was the illusionary observer hibernating those days? I shall term it as a callous
act with an immature understanding about Panging-Boleng.
May I have the honour to ask the capricious political observer of Panging Boleng
to please find out a single political figure having a clean career.
We appreciate the steps taken by Taki.
While nullifying the statement I also say that Taki is not governed by political
opportunity but the writer is guided by a vested interest.
Though the writer has given pigmentation on Tabin Taki’s political image, I take
it positively crediting that stones and pellets are only thrown on the fruitful tree.
His step is in one way a dawn lit to a new season of progress. Taki is not a decaying
figure but a moon blooming from crescent to full. Almighty will bless him in his
Anchal Samity Member
Recognition will encourage them
Although it is quite late, the State Government has finally recognized the contributions
of Nada Hailang, Police Inspector, APP and Taro Chatung, Chairman, Taro Ope Foundation,
by conferring both of them with silver medal and commendation certificates in recognition
of their commendable services in their respective fields during the 62nd R-day celebration.
Both Hailang and Chatung hail from Hija village of Lower Subansiri district.
We the people of Hija village are proud of them for their achievement and bringing
laurels to the village by winning state awards.
I am in close association with both the awardees since their childhood. They have
a rich tradition of discipline and dedication towards their duties and their recognition
will certainly encourage them to work with more dedication for the welfare of the
people of the state as whole.
Nida Hailang is a dedicated and committed Police officer who has shown his courage
and professionalism in policing while rendering selfless service to the State Police
Chatung needs no introduction. He had earned name and fame when he was the producer
and anchor of “News and Views.” His style of articulating the facts and figure of
the affairs of the state at that point of time is still fresh in the minds of every
viewer. He is a valued colleague whose initiative as producer of “News and Views”
left a lasting impact on the people of Arunachal Pradesh. He is currently Chairman
of Taro Ope Foundation, an NGO working for the poor and disadvantaged sections of
the society. It is this NGO, which sponsored mountaineer Tapi Mra for the Everest
We hope that both of them will maintain their spirit and tempo and bring more laurels
to Hija village in particular and the people of our state in general in the days
Hija Officers Welfare Society,
Provided its not political gimmick
After considerably a protracted slumber State Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP, Aunachal
Pradesh) resolve to fight corruption by launching statewide anti-corruption rallies
from February 2011. It should have been a decision taken much earlier, though, the
stir is an encouraging and welcoming development and serves as a breather for the
Aam Janata caught in the roller coaster ride of scam after scam without a break.
Following the party's proclamation to annihilate the hydra headed monster called
'corruption' one just has to wait and watch how BJP, for Shinning India, use the
fire powers in the party's arsenal effectively with pragmatic strategies to take
on with the might of the ruling Congress as most of those entangled in the corruption
mess are sheltered by people in the helm of the state's affair.
Some early cases of corruption, for instance, the misappropriation scandal of education
department, Pasighat, East Siang during the year 1994,involving Rs 87,85,314/ which
will exceed several crores at present value has been mummified and yet to see the
light of the day even, almost, after 17 years, not to mention the more recent glaring
scams, due to hush-hush affairs and lax Congress ruled state government's outlook.
BJP seem to be the only party, contemporarily, well equipped and determined to dive
deep into the unfathomable dark depth of this mire and unearth innumerable unexposed
prevalent or deceitfully dismissed to oblivion corrupt dealings and scams. Deprived
Aam Janata look forward to the movement of the main opposition with high expectation
and are fully prepared to tender possible cooperation if this is simply not a gimmick
to grasp some political mileage and an effort to make the withering party's presence
Some questions for RGU
I am here to express my confusion created by the RGU authority regarding the advertisement
of JE (Electrical) post on your last edition (dated 2/02/2011). The same kind of
interview has already been conducted by RGU few months ago for JE (Civil) and JE
(Electrical). Now I would like to ask RGU authority that why they are advertising
again for the same post whereas there were number of candidates who faced the interview
there and then.
It is heard that all the posts were reserved for the Doimukh area as being the land
donor and the virtue of RGU being located there. If it is true, then it should have
been mentioned clearly in advertisement that PRC of Doimukh as mandatory from appearing
candidate to avoid unnecessary harassment caused to the other aspirant youths. Such
practice from the highest form of temple of learning was not expected and it is very
unfortunate for Arunachal as a whole. Issue seems be small but it reflect the integrity
and administrational functioning of the institution.
Further, the trend of claims by land donors on the institutions or organizations
in the form of both developmental works and job reservation from generations to generations
is indeed unfair, illogical and should be discouraged by all. Since the establishment
of such institution itself is beneficial for local area for socio economic development.
So they should not ask for extra, which deprives other deserving youths of the state.
I appeal to the Govt. to locate the places for upcoming institutions where such interference
does not occur. They are now become headache for many institution and best examples
are NERIST and RGU who makes headlines for many such cases, even after being central
Do need for sensationalism
This has a reference to one Dr. Kapang Ering's letter dated January 31,.
It is very surprising that attempt to create a new district is sensationalized by
some people. Creation of a district is an usual administrative matter. In the case
of Lower Siang; the expediency is beyond doubt and needs no elaboration. So, giving
it a narrow colour is very unfortunate. People of the two foothill Assembly constituencies
have been facing untold misery.
A senior Govt. Officer should cultivate and promote the broad ideals of brotherhood
and harmonious existence of the masses. More so, a Medical Doctor is supposed to
be a world-class citizen. But, the content of Dr. Ering’s letter does not reflect
Dr. Ering has reacted as if some foreign power or other state is out to invade or
take away the tribal land.
Creating new district(s) will, in no way, deprive anyone of his rights. It is a minor
reorganization of administrative jurisdiction within the same state within the framework
of the Indian Constitution. There is no need to sensationalize the issue.
A Common Man,
Kudos for sports meet
