Gracefully accept verdict of SC
Arunachal's political battle has finally reached Supreme Court of India. Yesterday
Apex Court referred to a Constitution bench several petitions arising out of certain
orders passed by the Gauhati High Court in the ongoing political battle in Arunachal
Pradesh. Matter is now being heard by a five-judge Constitution bench. The hearing
is expected to continue for some days which will be followed by declaration of judgment.
Earlier Gauhati high court gave contradicting verdict in this regard. While Justice
Hrishikesh Roy came down heavily on Governor JP Rajkhowa over his decision to preponed
assembly session and accordingly stayed all decision taken during the assembly session
held in a community Hall which was attended by rebel Congress and BJP MLAs. However
another Gauhati high court judge BK Sharma issued a verdict in favour of Arunachal
Pradesh Legislative Assembly deputy speaker TN Thongdok's application for vacation
of December 17 court order of keeping in abeyance of Arunachal governor order to
advance the legislative session. The two completely different judgments on the same
case have baffled people of Arunachal. It's hard to make out which judgment is correct
as per the constitution. Therefore the decision of Supreme Court to let five-judge
Constitution bench settle this complex case has given ray of hope to the people.
The entire state will be praying that finally politicians will gracefully accept
the verdict of apex court. Developmental process has been severely affected by the
ongoing political turmoil. In the interest of people of Arunachal the present turmoil
should end at the earliest.
Constitutionality & Legality: Governor passed twice, the protesters failed twice
Having convened an Assembly session on 16th December and the same action being upheld
by the Hon’ble Gauhati High Court on 13th January, the Governor passed the test of
Constitutionality legality on both instances. What the Supreme Court rules in the
matter will tell the merit but at that point of time only. So, democratically, constitutionally
and legally, the Governor has proven himself to be a highly talented and proactive
one ever who has been trying the best of solve the avoidable political stalemate
infused and driven by huge discord amongst the elected representatives themselves.
Then there are the anarchic mob who have been protesting against the above said actions
of the Governor, they seized the highways, especially the one leading to the Raj
Bhavan on 17th December & 14 th January and blocking it by unlawful assemblies, butchering
Mithun, burning tyres. The public highways are not the designated place for democratic
protest especially the one leading to Raj Bhavan. The unlawful assemblies and their
activities are not permitted by law and so, these illegal protesters utterly failed
in every aspect of Constitutionality and legality.
And going by these persistent and serious unlawful activities, the protesters are
endlessly tarnishing and irreparably damaging the dignity and image of the hitherto
peace loving and law abiding people of the state in front of the whole world.
There is absolutely no regard for Democracy, Constitution, Judiciary & Rule of Law
and the involved individuals are misguided to set an extremely undesirable trend
and make a laughing stock of themselves and simultaneously earning the same ignominy
for their youngsters.
Social harmony is seriously disturbed and economic & developmental activities are
It regressive that the people of the state should be lead by such examples. People
misguiding and instigating these unlawfulness and disharmony should reform their
mode of leadership.
Democratic governance and the rule of law should not be allowed to be subverted by
such unlawfulness. There is a serious need of time to enforce Armed Forces Special
Power Act and other tough laws in the Itanagar Capital Complex for few months to
secure rule of law and social harmony.
Give the job to the deserving
As most of us knows that in Arunachal Pradesh the selection of government official
are very doubtful, as rumours are in air that most of low Grade government jobs comes
with a certain price and those are auctioned in market. So, to avoid such corrupt
practices in bureaucratic process Prime Minister Narendra Modi on December gave a
New Year gift to the youth of the country by announcing that from January 1 onwards
there would be no interviews for the candidates who cleared written exams for Grade-III
and Grade-IV jobs. The announcement was made to benefit the youth who despite the
capability do not get government jobs due to bureaucratic hurdles.
The rumours are still in air that the recent Grade III job which happened in recent
past months have already been auctioned in market. By such rumours, the enthusiastic
youth in our state are already discouraged and hopeless towards getting a job in
government sector by genuine and fair practices. I don’t know whether such rumours
are true or not but if it is, then the concern authority must look into the matter
because if the enthusiast youths who are determined and deserve a good job are discouraged
then, what more will be there in the state for development?
This is an appeal to concern authority of Arunachal Pradesh to remove this interview
system in the selection process of Grade III and Grade IV jobs for the good of enthusiastic
youth of the state and also to avoid unfair practice that take place during the selection
process. The job must be given to the deserving candidates rather than to the brainless
and lazy people. One should know what hard work is.
Sub standard Miao (Nampong) – Vijaynagar road work
We would like to draw kind attention of concerned authority through your esteemed
daily about substandard and unsatisfactory work on the Miao (Nampong) – Vijaynagar
road sector 103 RCC under 752 BRTF of project UDAYAK in Arunachal Pradesh which is
under progress from Nampong end.
The BRO is using local available cheapest RBM in place of specified materials to
be procured from the authorized quarry in Tinsukia, Assam in all their PMT/Cement
work whereas procurement of standard materials have been tendered in the name of
one Sanjay Aggarwal. Without bringing the specified material on site, they are only
bringing the duplicate challans/entry papers and using the local river bed materials.
This will surely result in a poor quality road in future.
In addition, the village tribal laborers have been expelled from the work on the
pretext of their delinquency. In fact, it is not the case. It is thereby, giving
a growth impediment in the locality.
Though ongoing work is being supervised by Dhirender Tiwari (Officer-in –charge)
A.E. (Civil) and Vinode Kumar, JE (Civ) personally but they are purposefully allowing
the substandard quality of materials and misusing the public money.
The innocent people are unable to see through their nefarious design. These ruffians
must immediately be removed from the particular site of work. It will be very unfortunate
if this evil is allowed to grow unchecked. Thus there is an urgent need of their
removal from the project site as early as possible.
Through the column of your esteemed daily, I would like to convey a message to Mr.
kalikho Pul, leader of the dissident party.
I’m not against Mr. Kalikho Pul, but the viral audio clip defaming the Nyishi community
which was credited to Mr. Pul and which he refuses to accept and subsequently for
the same reason a FIR has been registered against him by ANSU.
If he really thinks that he has been victimized, he must give a lie detector test
to prove his innocence.
Lastly, I would like to request the supporters of both the ruling and the dissident
parties not to fight among themselves because there is no profit in fighting within
