APCC seeks Govt intervention
Meanwhile, the Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) today expressed serious
concerns over the controversy surrounding the alleged leakage of question papers
of the APPSCCE (Mains)-2013-14. The Party appealed the State Government to intervene
and resolve the crisis immediately and re-conduct the examination immediately for
the benefit of the youths.
While conveying solidarity with the aggrieved civil service aspirants, the INC, as
one of the major political parties of the country and the state, said the grievances
of the aspirants, who are the future of the state, must be resolved immediately by
the Government and the authorities concerned.
The APCC, however, appealed the aggrieved aspirants to maintain restraint and not
resort to agitation like hunger-strike. At the same time the party also requested
the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) not to remain mute spectators
to the ongoing agitation. "Continuation of the confrontation will only take the crisis
deeper and ultimately deprive hundreds of qualified and eligible youths who had been
preparing for the prestigious examination for years," said an APCC release issued
by Spokesman Hayeng Mangfi.
The party suggested that the incumbent team of APPSC may voluntarily tender their
resignations and diffuse the tension, lest it turns into a major law and order problem.
The Party feels that tendering resignation will in no way lower their dignity but
instead keep the sanctity of the Commission in place. Keeping the faith of the youths
on the Commission should be the top most priority at the moment, the party said.

democratic movement of the aggrieved aspirants of APPSCE for justice and sanctity
of the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission.

responsibility for the crisis and voluntarily resign from their respective posts,

manner. The Union is of the view that prolonging the issue is not going to benefit

society. There may also be chances that people may politicize the issue and hijack
it for political mileage. Therefore, the union demanded voluntary resignation of
the Commission's Chairman and Members for the good of all, paving way for a new Commission
to conduct fresh exam. The Government should also give one-time relaxation of one
year in age eligibility for benefit of those aspirants who may go over-age without
getting a chance to sit for the examination due to the controversy.

ROING, Jan 07: The Enjalu Menda Women's Empowerment Forum (EMWEF) submitted a written
appeal to the Central Reh Celebration Committee to ban selling of alcohol in stalls
during the three-day Reh festival celebration from first week of February. The appeal
was submitted in an informal meeting at the Cheta Rheko hall here today.
"The EMWEF had successfully put a ban on selling alcohol in stalls in the Rheko campus
last year, which resulted in a much peaceful celebration environment, especially
for women and children", informed GS EMWEF Rakhi Linggi.
"We received positive feedback from doctors who said that last year was the only
time there were no casualties in the hospital during the festival", added member
EMWEF Rima Meto.

against alcohol abuse through this platform", said member EMWEF Desai Linggi.

Masked gunmen shouting "Allahu akbar!" stormed the Paris offices of a satirical newspaper
on Wednesday, killing 12 people before escaping. It was France's deadliest terror
attack in at least two decades. The Charlie Hebdo weekly had frequently drawn condemnation
from Muslims for publishing satirical cartoon about Prophet Mohammed. France raised
its security alert to the highest level and reinforced security at houses of worship,
stores, media offices and transportation. Top government officials were holding an
Those killed include Editor-in-chief Stephane Charbonnier, known as Charb, and the
cartoonists known as Cabu, Tignous and Wolinski. The incident has drawn condemnation
from across the world. Muslim community has also strongly condemned the incident
and stated that Islam does not support such barbaric act. This incident is direct
attack on the freedom of press. People have right to differ with content of news
or cartoons published but they have no right to kill someone. In Arunachal too media
houses and journalists are always at the receiving end of the goons who tries to
muzzle down press freedom. Paris incident once again remind us how unsafe journalist

Still awaiting justice
Through the column of your esteemed daily, we the family members of Late Bengia Yame
who died on 8th January’ 2014 at Arunachal State Hospital (ASH) Naharlagun following
a knee cap surgery would like to lay down few points for consideration. Late Yame
was operated after she accidentally fell down from a chair while trying to fix the
light bulb at home. And she was operated on 6th January" 2014 and was undergoing
treatment from the doctors of ASH. She later died within 5 minutes of after being
given injection by the Sister Incharge. Thereafter we the family member lodged an
FIR against aforesaid staffs and the case was registered. Now one year has passed
but still we have not got justice. So, we would like to ask authority concern the
following point as mentioned below:-
1 Why the case is still pending?
2. Why Post-mortem Report is delayed till today?
3. What is the outcome of enquiry committee set up by the Government?
We have enough evidences that our mother was killed in the hospital. She was a healthy
person and was not suffering from any medical problem which was known from medical
examination prior to the operation of knee cap. We, the family members are still
waiting for the justice.

Declare results at the earliest
Through the column of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the attention of
the Chief Conservator of Forest Department, Western Arunachal Circle, Banderdewa,
towards delay in declaration of written test examination result for the post of UDC,
LDC and Forest Guard. The result of other circle has been declared on 30th Dec’2014.
But the results of our CCF, Western Arunachal circle have not been declared yet.
The rumour of unfair attempt has been spreading like wild-fire. I, being one of the
poor candidates, request the concern authorities to declare the result as soon as
possible to avoid any misunderstanding.
Let us pass on rich culture to gen. next
Through the column of your esteemed daily I would like to share what I feel the concerned
departments should take note of. Just recently on my way back from village I happened
to come across a very well made bamboo fence by the roadside and the first thought
that hit me was ‘Wow! Now that’s Arunachal’ almost instinctively. And that had me
thinking, what if that same thing was done not just in cultural exhibitions but also
in places the public pass by on a daily basis- furnitures in offices, how about elegant
bamboo-crafted stands at traffic points? Some obvious plus points:-
1) Promoting and thereby preserving our culture.
2) Employment opportunities for both the able youths and the aging populace even
from the very remote corners of our state
3) Zero advertising cost. A single Facebook post can reach thousands and there’s
Instagram, twitter, WatsApp, you tube etc. It will be a huge asset for the tourism
sector. And by the time I was pondering over these endless possibilities I am suddenly
an Arunachal fanboy all over again and that in itself is something worth celebrating.
Not that I am some rich foreign investor but because I constitute a part of a whole
generation of youths who very unfortunately, in more ways than one have grown tired
of ‘almost anything local’. At this rate in a decade or so, the traditional wears
that we so proudly present the chief guest in every other major occasions today will
later end up in some museum with the tag- Last One, Though Up For Auction, No Historical
I apologize if I am (as we’d say) ‘line cross kr dia’ but I earnestly would like
to call upon one and all esp. our ‘parent’s generation’ to act now. I am probably
not quite yet fit to be saying this but I sincerely believe it’s our shared responsibilities
to come up with innovative ways to acquaint the coming generation with our rich tradition
and culture. That being said I on behalf of all like-minded fellow Arunachalees,
would like to make an appeal to our leaders and concerned departments of the Govt.
of A.P. with the hope that my above mentioned points are taken into consideration
if not as a suggestion but as a mere feedback would suffice.
