Plea for implementation of scheme properly


Dear Editor,

I, on behalf of the  All Papum Pare District Students’ Union (APPDSU), would like to bring into the notice of authority concerned regarding the execution of on going various development works at Sagalee Town including the one for which the Union Minister for Housing, Urban Poverty Alleviation and Tourism, Kumari Selja has recently laid the foundation stone under the Urban Development programmes.

The  Minister has recently laid the foundation stone for Mega Housing Complex and Multipurpose Community Hall worth above Rs. 4 cr each at Sagalee town during her short visit.

Observing all these development activities  and huge amount of fund being poured in for development projects in this area, All Papum Pare District Students’ Union (APPDSU) highly appreciate Nabam Tuki, local MLA of Sagalee who is also the PWD and UD Minister of Arunachal Pradesh. And we hope lots more schemes and development activities will  come up in Papum Pare District in particular and state as a whole through his good experience.

But, now, the major concern lies at executing these schemes/projects effectively. We as an apex student body of the particular area feel that Urban Programme Officer should come up to the expectation to execute the said works properly.

It causes concern that the housing  projects   for Government employees worth Rs. 1 crore under SPA which has been already completed is not up to the mark as per supposed standard.

It  is worth mentioning here that the work for infrastructure development of Sagalee Town involving more than  Rs. 3 crores is undergoing in a haphazard manner. The work which needs great care and attention is paid with little or no attention.

Therefore, it is our appeal to concern authorities to transfer capable and well experiences engineers who can complete the above mentioned project in a successful way.

Since it is a matter of great importance for the development, prosperity and beautification of Sagalee Town, we the All Papum Pare District Students’ Union (APPDSU) request the concern people to carry out the development works properly.


Nabam John

President, APPDSU

APSCW completes 5 years of its existence

ITANAGAR, Jan 18: The Arunachal Pradesh State Commission for Women(APSCW)  has completed 5 years of commitment as a constitutional body working for the rights of women and girl child of Arunachal Pradesh.

While the primary  function of the APSCW is to inquire into unfair practices,  recommendation of the welfare measures to be adopted and implemented by the Govt with a view to ameliorating the conditions for women, the APSCW  has a total count   of  310 no of cases registered with  it as on November 2009  since its inception.

Headed by the eminent women’s rights activist, Jarjum Ete as chairperson, APSCW took up the cudgel of spreading awareness by organizing intensive tour of various places in the state. Advocacy about women’s right was felt to be the need of the hour and familiarizing women with women’s rights was the first of activities undertaken.  

Besides participation in various forums, four mega events were organized by the APSCW during its first tenure viz -- a public hearing on micro credit of SHGS and on women with marginal income besides state level workshop on domestic violence act and sexual harassment at work place and a regional seminar on land and resource right of indigenous women in addition to public hearing of cases at district level. According to records available with the APSCW, maximum cases registered with the APSCW within 2005-2008 pertained to  child / forced marriages (including marital rape) closely followed by domestic violence, violence against women and multiple marriages. Few cases of gender discrimination were also seen. The first body of the APSCW relinquished office on 14th March’2008.

The mandate of the APSCW i.e. protection of women and ensuring progress and development of the women of the Arunachal Pradesh was taken  up by the new body headed by  Komoli Mosang, Chairperson and  Mepung Tadar, vice chairperson another four members Tadar Yadir, Kenyir Ringu, Yater Nasi and Secha Raj Kumar when they  assumed office on 23rd June’2008 .

It was observe red that atrocity against women had been  rising  as marked by the inhuman dual murder of two local indigenous girls on 12th june’2008.(an interim period  when the APSCW was not in office ),     other reported instances like  atrocities against women protestors fighting for water and electricity in Dollumukh on 10th august’2008, rapes of indigenous minor girls, entanglement of a Karge section of women in financial insecurities and social problems arising thereof, were issues that are being addressed.  

Later, a step towards intensive empowerment was undertaken through media advocacy workshops  on rights of the girl child  and organized at sub-divisional level in collaboration with the Gandhi Smriti and Darshan Samiti.

Simultaneously door to door awareness on  gender aspect of disaster management was also undertaken in collaboration with the directorate of relief and rehabilitation and disaster management  throughout the state.

The  experiences of the APSCW with child marriage victims and their rehabilitation have in fact evolved into a project, namely, ‘situational analysis on social context of school drop-out among school children with special reference to the girl child in an endemic area of child marriage’ being taken up with support from the Sarva Siksha Abhiyan Rajya Mission.

While case-related field visit routine hearing of cases  settled through regular hearings held  on day to day basis,  monitoring of cases through concerned  police and district administration to ensure justice to the victimised women and children within minimum time  frame are the day to day activities of the APSCW. The APSCW has left no stone unturned to project issues of importance at the highest echelons .

On 2nd April 2009 the APSCW  submitted a brief submission to the president of India Pratibha Devi Singh Patil  during her  maiden visit with a four point agenda including a demand for a separate sub committee for the North eastern region.

On June 19, 2009 the APSCW met the chairperson of the  National Commission for Scheduled Tribes, Urmila Singh and other  members  and  pleaded  that indigenous land and resource rights of the tribal women of the land should be protected. The APSCW also prayed that parameteres for socio-economic welfare extendable to the tribal women especially in the north eastern region be considered on the basis of topographic difficulties rather than demographic considerations.

Further a consultative meeting with the honorable members of the National Commission for women  Wansuk Syiem ,i/c of the north eastern states was held on  11th Nov 2008.


APSCW calls for cooperation

The APSCW on the morning of its 6th year expresses pain at the rising crime graph of violence against women and the girl child. Echoing the voice of chairperson APSCW Komoli Mossang,  the vice chairperson Tadar Mepong in a press release stated   that  since clarion call to the society for a social commitment towards security of women is not sufficient, it is time for all the stakeholders like civil societies, media and Govt functionaries to work hand in hand for a  gender sensitive society.  

As opposed to parallel bodies in other states which are run with a staff strength of more than 40 employees, the APSCW is sustained on minimal strength with only three  regular staffs.  Inspite of this  meagre infrastructure we have been  striving hard to fulfill the  responsibilities vested upon us and we shall leave no stones unturned in  delivering justice, she said.
