Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit Tuesday evening, Khandu stated that Arunachal Pradesh
is ready to accept investments in Agriculture, Horticulture and Tourism sectors immediately
to begin with.
"Arunachal Pradesh is favourably situated between the huge markets of mainland India
in the South and South-Asian countries beyond its borders," he pointed.
The Chief Minister observed that Arunachal Pradesh remained closed to investors from
outside due to its remoteness and poor market. However, he said the state is opening
up its treasure trove with better communication network like the Trans Arunachal
Highway, Advance Landing Grounds, and extension of railway lines, better bridges,
etc and a more congenial atmosphere of doing brisk business.
"Arunachal Pradesh now means serious business and that's why we are here today,"

NGOs slam India’s human rights situation, shrinking democratic space
ITANAGAR, Jan 11: A number of non-governmental organizations have criticized the
Indian government for its poor record with regard to critical issues such as harassment
of civil rights activists, shrinking democratic space, discrimination against minorities,
and condition of women, children, Dalits and tribal people in the country.
These and many more issues have been highlighted in the Joint Stakeholder's Report
on India's overall human rights situation released by the Working Group on Human
Rights (WGHR) in India and UN at New Delhi recently. The report was submitted to
the UN Human Rights Council for the upcoming third Universal Periodic Review of India
due to take place at Geneva in May 2017, under which India's human rights record,
obligations and commitments will be evaluated by 193 member states of the UN at the
UNHRC. More than a thousand NGOs, lawyers and activists from almost all states in
the country have endorsed the report.
Henri Tiphagne, convenor of WGHR, said various UN bodies and several governments
have expressed concerns on severe restrictions and actions by the Indian Government.
He said that the report endorsed by more than 1000 organizations in the country,
echoes the need for the Indian Government to call for an open dialogue with the civil
society before the UPR plenary session is held in May 2017. He also pointed out "as
India claims to move ahead with developmental agenda, no development can be at the
cost of crushing of fundamental rights of dissent and protest which are the basic
elements of our democracy."
The Co-director of HAQ: Centre for Child Rights Enakshi Ganguly pointed out that
India spends merely 4% of the national budget on children. She said that it is sad
that in a country that claims to have become a global leader in last three years,
the status and condition of children have not seen any meaningful improvement since
UPR 2. She strongly criticised the new Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection) Act
2015 which includes a "regressive provision of waiver of 16-18 year olds into the
adult criminal justice system for serious offences & has led to the lowering of standards
for dealing with children in conflict with the law."
Senior human rights lawyer Vrinda Grover expressed concern over the failure of the
Indian state to honour its pledges at the earlier UPRs and highlighted that despite
assurances to the Human Rights Council, India had still not ratified the Convention
Against Torture, and no law against torture has been passed by the Indian Parliament
to date. Terming this a damning blot on India's human rights record she urged the
Parliament to pass the Prevention of Torture law in compliance with CAT.
Vrinda also said that the impunity for human rights violations by security forces
in zones of conflict continue and further, no heed is being paid to recommendations
by HRC member States, UN Treaty bodies and Special Rapporteours to repeal AFSPA.
The reports from Chhattisgarh are very disturbing where Adivasi women were being
sexually assaulted and men killed in extra judicial killings by police and security
forces; and lawyers, journalists, activists and academics highlighting these egregious
violations are being targeted by the police and administration; She also emphasized
that sexual violence against women remained widespread and systematic and the basic
citizenship rights of half the population were infringed. The government must as
a matter of highest priority ensure conditions where women enjoy their freedoms and
live without fear.
The WGHR Joint Stakeholders report deals with critical issues like social inequality,
homelessness, cancellation of FCRA of NGOs, harassment of civil rights activists,
shrinking of democratic in India as well as Dalit and tribal issues.
Some startling facts highlighted in the report are: India tops world hunger list
with 194.6 million undernourished; has the world's largest number of homeless and
landless persons; the world's highest number of malnourished and hungry children;
56% rural households are landless; 30% of world's poorest people and 10.2 million
working children between 5-14 years. 68% prisoners are in pre-trial detention; Every
third sanctioned post in the higher judiciary and every fourth in the lower courts
is vacant; 5,650 Indian farmers committed suicide in 2014 i.e. 15 farmers a day;
Between 2005 and 2015 more than 40 RTI activists are reportedly murdered and more
than 250 others have been physically assaulted or harassed; India voted against a
UN General Assembly resolution calling for moratorium on death penalty; India refused
to adopt UN General Assembly resolution on human rights defenders in November 2015;
India's longest overdue report to the UN is to the Human Rights Committee last submitted
