Umbrey calls for upgradation of Mehao sanctuary to National park
ROING, Feb 9: Roing MLA, Laeta Umbrey in a recent statement called for up-gradation
of Mehao Wildlife Sanctuary to National Park with re-demarcation of its present boundaries.
The present wildlife boundary, which includes several villages within its territory
might give rise to conflict situation in the future, he said.
Several important Govt offices and residential areas in Roing town also fall under
the Mehao Reserve Forest area.
Putting forward his solution to such ‘arbitrary demarcation’, Umbrey called for re-demarcation
of the present boundary to make way for villages and town, where people have settled
much before it was declared as Wildlife Sanctuary and Reserved Forest.
Such steps, he said, will also facilitate building of a small dam in the upstream
of Eze River with a capacity of 2-3 MW electricity power, which will solve the perennial
crisis of power shortages in the Roing town.
The present Eze intake channel, which is the source of water for 750 KW phase-I and
500 KW phase-II Deopani Hydel, falls within the boundary of the wildlife sanctuary.
In addition to making way for sustainable solution to developmental works, Umbrey
who comes from Idu tribe that follows strict wildlife conservation rules, has also
said that up-gradation of Mehao WS to National Park, was a ‘priority’.
“Mehao Wildlife is one of the last habitats of Hoolock Gibbon, Mishmi Takin, Tigers
and other highly endangered wild species”, he said, “which needs special protection.”
Expressing ‘pride’, with a sense of gladness, he said that it is the strong taboos
in Idu tribe against hunting wild animals that have resulted in several wild species
being relatively common in the area, which he claims are rare even in other wildlife
sanctuaries of the state.
The Idu Mishmi tribe follows strict ritual practices related to hunting; for example,
after a wild animal is hunted, the hunter is not permitted to have intimacies with
his wife for a week. In this period of gena (prohibition), he is supposed to stay
separately in the house and follow strict dietary prohibitions.

BJP express concern over ‘politics of instability’ and corruption
ITANAGAR, Feb 9: While lauding the ability of state leaderships in mobilizing the
developments fund, especially Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu for coming up with infrastructures
like the Civil Secretariat complex, Legislative Assembly Secretariat, MLA Hostel,
CM’s Bungalow besides welfare steps like enhancement of labour wages, doubling the
figures of state budgetary allocations, liberal steps initiated in the Corpus Funds

within the Congress-led state Government, which it said, would indirectly hamper

Maintaining that what is happening within the Congress party is an internal matter
of the party, the State unit BJP, however, said ‘unless there is a fire how can smoke
be there.’ It further said since rumours doing the rounds at regular intervals,
the party in power needs introspection and reassurance to the people of progressive
politics than the politics of instability in the larger interests of the people.

mechanisms for successful implementation of the various important projects. The political

projects in the state and also exposed the credibility and performance of the state
government which is committed to people first, the party said.

State Coop. Apex Bank, hand over the multi-crore PDS scam to CBI probe, investigation
into the alleged irregularities in the various other resourceful institutions like

transparency in implementing various schemes including MGNREGS, Mid-day Meals, construction

not make lip service if the required fund worth Rs.500 Crores is received from the

The recent crackdown on the timber mafia by the Department of Environment & Forest
at Lohit District is a laudable step. It seems that, the custodian of the forest
has finally woken up from slumber to perform its moral obligation. Unfortunately,
the department had in the recent past turned a blind eye towards the misdemeanor
of the illegal timber dealers. Numerous illicit band saw mills had mushroomed in
the district headquarters and adjacent areas. Ironically, the office of the Chief
Conservator of Forest & Divisional Forest Officer is located here. Timber worth crores
of rupees was smuggled out of the state during the past one decade, thus, depriving
the state exchequer of its revenue. Sissoo (Dalbergia Sissoo), a precious species
is now on the verge of extinction. The inability of the department to curb deforestation
in the past was appalling.
In retrospect, timber business boomed during the 1980s till mid 1990s, which literally
led to the prosperity of the Marwaris, who after the ban diversified their business,
whereas the majority of locals, who thrived on the timber business, were back to
square one. The obvious reason was, their means of livelihood was unsustainable one.
They’d got used to easy money thereby ignoring other sustainable source of income,
eventually leading to their impoverishment. Several government employees & students
had left their jobs & studies to make a fortune in the timber business. With the
ban on timber activities, they suffered a major setback. However the ban proved a
blessing in disguise, because post 1996 we’ve witnessed a substantial increase in
the number of graduates and job holders among the local population, which is a welcome
One should learn a lesson from this and refrain from committing the same blunder
by indulging in timber business, which is illegal and unsustainable. One could opt
for sustainable means of livelihood such as Agriculture, Animal husbandry, Horticulture
and other avenues, which if pursued diligently would prove fruitful and they could
be passed down to posterity. Its time to realize that long term ecological gains
can’t be sacrificed for short-term economic gains of few unscrupulous people. Forest
once destroyed takes hundreds of years to regenerate. So it could act us non-renewable
resource if overused. Our ancestors regarded nature as mother, forest was considered
sacred, forest cleans up our air and act like sponge that can hold water for the
dry season. Just imagine a world filled with skyscrapers, cars, gadgets and other
luxuries but devoid of fresh air, clean water and greenery. Would it be livable?
This imagination might turn into a reality if deforestation is not checked.
Mahatma Gandhi had deep insight into the need to conserve nature. He’d opined that
“Man’s needs, but not his greed can be supported by our earth”. Of course, we need
timber for construction of our houses, godowns and cattle sheds. To cater to those
needs, appropriate mechanism could be evolved by the government by using the forest
resources judiciously rather than ravaging it. Today the whole world is concerned
over the looming threat of global warming, climate change and other disastrous consequences
of deforestation. We, being a part of the global village can’t be callous towards
this concern. So it is expected that the Department of Environment and Forest will
intensify its battle against deforestation and to achieve this noble goal, the cooperation
of the public is equally important.

Need of fire Station at Kamba
The recent fire incident at Kamba, near Donyi Polo Collage could have been controlled
if there would have been a fire station in nearby area. Kamba is one of most populated
circle in West Siang dist. The establishments of Govt. Hr. Sec. School (1948), Govt.
Donyi Polo Collage Kamki, ADC Office and other development infrastructure resulted
in rapid growth of population with increase in dwelling houses. Due to insufficient
hostels in both Hr. Sec. School and Govt. Collage there are more than five hundred
huts built as private hostels to accommodate the growing number of students in the
area. The present fire brigade station is situated at Aalo, 21 km away from Kamba.
So, there is no hope of fire brigade to prevent fire mishap.
Large number of villages including Kato new, Kato old, Nomuk, Karbak, Libu Bane,
Boye, Karga, Dego, Ruyi, Kambu, Kamki, Likar, Tali, Faram, Pari, Keak, Gamo, Kerang
will be benefited if a fire station is established at Kamba. As I am born and brought
up in Kamba, I have witnessed fire incident every year in one village or other,
but we are helpless due to non-existence of fire station in nearby areas.
Therefore, it is my earnest request to the concern authority to establish a fire
bridge station at Kamba for the betterment of public of the Kamba and nearby villages.
At the same time I would like to appeal KKSU, HHSU and other organizations to raise
their voice for the same.
