Proper monitoring is the need of hour
One of the biggest issues concerning people of Arunachal whenever any infrastructure
project is launched is quality of work. Majority of project fails due to poor quality.
Interestingly this is happening despite the presence of so many monitoring bodies.
The nexus between contractors and corrupt government officials is the root cause
of poor quality work. Therefore it’s important that senior government officials intervene
and take control of the situation.
Yesterday Tirap deputy commissioner Ravi Jha expressed his dissatisfaction over the
inferior quality of work on the PDS go-down at Khonsa under the urban department.
Deputy Commissioner asked the executing agencies not to compromise with the quality
of work at any cost. This was a rare instance when a deputy commissioner pointed
out the mistake in public forum. DC Jha deserves appreciation for being bold enough.
Other government officials should take inspiration from him and start calling spade
a spade. For a state like Arunachal which is totally dependent on central government
even for single penny, there is need to ensure that funds are properly used. Misuse
of fund over the years has severely affected the developmental process of the state.
Execution of poor quality work leads to misuse of fund.
Through your esteemed daily, I would like to bring to the notice of all the students
community of Arunachal Pradesh that the present executive of AAPSU has completed
its 3 years term in January 2016.
But till today no notification regarding holding of Conference cum Election has
According to the present AAPSU constitution, it is explicitly mentioned that after
completion of the term, election is mandatory and there is no provision of extending
the tenure at any ground.
The DSU’s being the federal of AAPSU should jointly look into this matter, in order
to preserve the very sanctity of the provisions laid down in the AAPSU constitution.
Therefore, the present AAPSU executive members are requested to conduct the Conference
cum Election as early as possible in a free and fair manner.
Through the column of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the attention of
the Tax & Excise Department regarding the delay in declaring Written Examination
results for Assistant Inspector. Written examination for the post of Assistant Inspector
was conducted on 26th July 2015 but result is not yet declared.
Delay in declaration of result creates doubts and confusion in the minds of aspirant
candidates. On the other hand, there may be some favoritism in the selection process.
Therefore, through the help of your esteemed Daily, I would like to seek the kind
intervention of Governor of Arunachal Pradesh, regarding the delay in declaration
of written examination results.
Seppa, East Kameng
Whether we are under president rule or not it does not make much difference to those
common public who got nothing to do with who forms the next Government but what really
matter us and worries us is lack of Govt institute and its staff. Seemingly, at present
the denizens of Boleng ADC headquarter is surviving without any doctor to look after
the Boleng CHC for a very long time. Boleng town which is surrounded by natural beauty
is relying under God’s mercy for very long time. The people of Boleng has to go all
the way to Aalo district medical or Pasighat District Medical which are 45 km and
95 Km distance from Boleng respectively even for minor checkup. Boleng is also considered
as a populated town with many private and Government schools which is also the educational
hub for peripheral villages in newly created district of Siang.
So, just imagine in such kind of condition, how we are going to handle the situation
if there is any medical emergency. The Common public is more concerned with health
and education and good road connectivity and mobile facility not schemes and mega
projects which are out of their dream. For common men schemes, projects and contract
work are like building castle in the air.
So, the need of the hour is we need a regular doctor and proper medical facility
in Boleng town.
Therefore, I request Governor JP Rajkhowa and the Health department of Arunachal
Pradesh to kindly deploy a good and sincere Medical Officer in Boleng at the earliest
as rainy season has already started out, which is an indication of typhoid, malaria,
jaundice and more diseases.
I just hope with the imposition of president rule the people of Boleng will get to
see a qualified doctor in Boleng CHC very soon without further delay.
I would like to highlight regarding students elections in JNC, Pasighat.
The notification states that each candidate must expend only up to Rs 25000, which
is fair and decent.
But in reality, lakhs are being expended and every-one knows it.
I’ve seen better people with better leadership qualities and really promising but
poor who can’t afford the lakhs.
Where is equality? Rich gets all opportunity and poor although better gets no chance
So, I hope this matter be looked into seriously and everybody gets their fair chance.
Wrong ratio of candidates
The recently declared APPSC (mains) exam result has created much confusion and has
compelled me to put my queries before the commission. First they took more than two
years to conduct mains exam and another few months to declare its result which shows
inconsistency with govt. norm of selecting 1:3 for viva voice against vacant posts.
As per advertisements, there are 50 post in all total for which 150 candidate must
be selected for viva voice complying established norm of 1:3. But commission opted
for only 132 candidates for viva voice and physical test which show gross violation
of norms. The act of commission has deprived as many as 18 candidates of their right
of equal opportunity. Commission must come out with clarification if there is any
changes in the selection procedure for viva voice and if not they must declare the
mains result with exact number of qualified candidate against 50 vacant posts.
This is high time commission stop playing games with careers of deserving candidates
and culture of deprivation.
Once we heard a statement of Lt. Lummer Dai, writer and former Director of IPR spoke
in a Convention of All Arunachal Pradesh Tribal Employees Association held during
seventies at Ziro “If 80% of Group C and 100% of Group D employee are reserved for
APST, who will hold the office key to open and lock the office “.
The statement of Lt. L Dai is seen today.
The word obedient in government employees are completely wiped out. Now a day, Chowkidar
assigned for opening and locking the office as per own convenient; Casual workers
organising rally against own department undermining their appointment terms and conditions;
group C employees skip from official duty in the pretext of urgent of works and officers
avoid office for the sake of pleasing their political godfather expecting promotion
out of turn and choice posting. Right from top to low grade, staffs rarely attended
office in full working hours. The ultimate sufferers are public and visitors. Any
government servants are duty bound and all are come under CCS Rule and can be punished
as per Conduct Rule.
The root causes of negligence of duty of government employees in Arunachal Pradesh
are corrupt system of governance and weak administration of ministers, bureaucrats
and technocrats. Here, some steps to improve work culture of Arunachal Pradesh govt.
All govt employees should be recruited through competitive examination. Back door
appointment for the exchange of cash and favour should be completely be stopped.
Here in AP education qualification is for sitting in examination whereas political
favour and cash are criteria for appointment.
1. Appointment on functional basis should completely be banned. Morality of any
employee shall come down when junior starts dictating and writing Annual Confidential
Report of a senior by virtue of illegally acquired chair. In reality, functional
Officers/officials has no gut to lead his subordinate staffs rather he/she would
try to prepare fishy and flimsy activities to secure his position thereby encouraging
the corrupt practices. Generally, functional appointment is done to bridge the gap
for limited period and is filled within six months. Here in Arunachal functional
appointments are more than regulars. Functional appointment system is the safe method
of the ministers and bureaucrats to extract public money through functional officials/officers.
2. Regularisation of Adhoc and casual Services should be done on seniority-sincerity-cum-merit
basis. In present practice, regularisation of a casual employee having no political
and bureaucratic patronage seems a distance dream.
Rotation of transfer and posting. All govt employees should have equal opportunity
to be posted one-third service length in their town/district hqtr, Area-II/interior
area and other districts. The system prevailing in Arunachal is that the employees
of kiths and kins of MLA/MP/Ministers or party workers remains in home posting throughout
their service period whereas those who are doing duty impartiality remains away from
home and family. Consequences are that all govt employees are better servants of
The entitlements of government employees should be provided so that heart and soul
of govt servants could be drained toward public service.
Proper In-service training on Involvement & Limitation of Government Employees in
political affairs and Unions/NGOs should be imparted to all appointees. Likewise,
high ranking officers should give logical guidance to honourable ministers, MLAs
and MPs in service matters.
It is the President Rule (PR), so to say Purity in Running the government under leadership
of His Excellency, Governor of Arunachal Pradesh and respected Chief Secretary,
Arunachal Pradesh from whom common people considered as beginning of clean administration.
The present system of governance of Arunachal is credited to corrupt elected leaders.
