Tawang meet says no to hydro projects

[ Tongam Rina ]

ITANAGAR, Feb 14: Hundreds of monks led by the Save Mon Region Federation (SMRF), PRIs leaders, common citizens have said no to the Tawang Phase I and II by the NHPC.

The rejection of the NHPC projects happened during a meeting on Tuesday headed by the Rev.Thegtse Rinpochhe which was convened by the DC Sang Phuntsok to discuss the issues related to NHPC's Tawang Phase-I and Phase-II Hydro Power Project.

The NHPC has already given 3750 Lakhs (37.5 crores) each for Tawang I and II as upfront payment to the Arunachal government in 2008.

During the meeting, which was attended by Tawang MLA Tsering Tashi and Lumla MLA Jambey Tashi,  it was made clear that project should not go ahead without the consent of the citizens.

MLA Tsering Tashi said that a committee will be constituted under the guidance of Rev. Thegtse Rinpochhe to submit a report to the govt. soon on the decision of the people.

President, SMRF Lama Lobsang Phuntsok submitted a report to the MLAs containing the signatures of the land owners who have refused the NHPC projects in Tawang.

The SMRF have for long accused the NHPC of fraudulently taking the signatures of the villagers agreeing to the Tawang projects during the Gram Sabha meetings.

As part of the forest clearance process under the Forest (Conservation) Act, 1980, it is mandatory to also seek prior consent of the concerned Gram Sabhas under the Scheduled Tribes (and Other Forest Dwellers) Recognition of Forest Rights Act 2006. The Supreme Court of India has also emphasized the importance of Gram Sabha consent in its landmark judgement related to the Vedanta mine in Odisha.

Vice President SMRF LT Khom said that Tawang is a peaceful district but if NHPC go ahead with the project, the peace is likely to be disturbed.

After the meeting ended, both the MLAs came to Chamleng ground, Tawang Monastery to address the people, who had gathered in large numbers to pray for those who lost their lives and many other injured in the police firing on May 2, 2016.

Tawang has witnessed severe violence as it erupted against mega power projects with Army called in last year.

On May 2 last year,  two people had died when police fired at protestors demanding the release of Lama Lobsang Gyatso, General Secretary of the Save Mon Region Federation, spearheading the anti-hydro power movement in Mon Region, from Police custody.

At least seven were seriously injured because of the indiscriminate police firing.

21 years old Nyima Wangdi, a monk from the Tawang Monastery and 31 years old Tsering Tempa from Jangda village were shot dead on the sport by the police.

The National Green Tribunal in April 2016 had suspended the environmental clearance given to the proposed 780 MW hydropower project promoted by the Bhilwara group which subsequently led to the state govt crack down on anti dam protestors.

The Tawang Hydroelectric Project-1 ( 600 MW (3 x 200 MW) is proposed on Tawangchu located about 28 Km from Tawang Town.

The  Tawang Hydroelectric Project II- 800 MW (4 x 200 MW)is proposed on Tawangchu river and is located at downstream of Forebridge near Jang.

The meeting on Tuesday happened amidst nervous notifications from the district administration.

On Jan 30, the DC had sent a circular regarding the meeting and in a notification sent out on Feb 6, the DC had restricted the participants of Panchayat Raj Institutions and SMRF to hundred each.




Arunachal and Pul’s Mere Vichar

[ Tongam Rina ]

Barely six months after former Chief Minister Kalikho Pul died, his much discussed note "Mere Vichar" was made public by the web portal, The Wire.  Though there were hundreds of shares on social networking sites, which had made the former Chief Minister a hero, the reaction, otherwise has been muted, a typical Arunachalee reaction, where people go silent when they should be speaking up. Baring few organizations, the job of speaking up has been left to Dangwimsai Pul, first wife of Late CM who has called for a CBI probe into her husband's death.

For months, this daily has been trying to get hold of the note but it was told that the notes were kept sealed.  When the notes were finally published, couriered from Itanagar to various media houses in the country, like everyone else in the state, we were taken by surprise. But it had to come out in the open one day or the other from a different source and not from the government or its police department, because the outcome of the police investigation was going nowhere.

The investigation by the police based on the complaint by the Personal Security Officer of Pul took a little more than two months.  The details were submitted on October 24, 2016. While the police did its job, there was silence and more silence. The government kept mum and even now, it has refused to speak on the issue.

The investigation makes it very clear under what circumstances Pul took his life while the doctors at the Tomo Riba State hospital concluded that the death was caused due to "asphyxia resulting from hanging by ligature and suicidal in nature". The toxicological examination by FSL, Guwahati ruled out poisoning.

There was another complaint by the three wives where they mention that Pul hanged himself because of depression caused by the corrupt leaders. While there is no specific mention about who the leaders were in the complaint, the now published notes has made it amply clear who he meant. The judiciary is not spared nor the All India Congress Committee, Chief Minister Pema Khandu, Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein and former Chief Minister Nabam Tuki, among others.   

It is very unlikely that those named in the notes will ever be investigated or the note itself will have any validity in the court of law. Perhaps, the note will be dismissed as writing by a depressed man who could not cope with betrayal by his MLA colleagues that led him to lose his chair.

While going through the police report and Pul's notes, one thing that stands out is his patience. He knew what he was doing right from ensuring that Mere Vichar was typed in Hindi and multiple copies made and moving a table to the room where he took his life a week later.

This reminds of a press conference that Pul had held more than a decade ago when he was the Finance Minister. Alleged of financial mismanagement, he called the press over to his residence, with a lunch thrown in, to clarify his stand. It went on for more than six hours, complete with a map and power point presentation. In the conference, he implicated everyone while absolving himself, the same as the note. He had the patience as well clarity on the issue in that long press conference as he in Mere Vichar, his last dying statement.

What next? Perhaps there will be nothing. Politicians will sleep in peace, without remorse and nightmares because citizens have gotten over the shock of his death and the content of the notes, without any reaction or demand.  Such is the tragic situation. Pul's death was tragic. Lack of reaction, even after  publication of his notes, by the same citizens who made him a hero, making him forget that MLAs make a chief minister, not the common people and his trusted coterie, ultimately leading to his ouster, makes it much more tragic. The lack of respect for the dead and lack of self respect of those who are alive and can make a difference is the reflection of the society we have become; uncaring, unaccountable and speak out when it serves our selfish motives.

While writing this, yours truly had to ignore the unwritten Arunachalee tribal diktat that one should not talk anything about the ones who are gone forever because they can't defend themselves.
