Breakfast with butterflies

Miao ready to host Butterfly India Meet 2010


MIAO, July 11: The Butterfly India Meet 2010 venue, originally planned at Deban has been shifted to Miao.

The decision was taken after a team consisting of 18 Assam Rifles Col Sandip Choudhory, SEACOW general secretary Phupla Singpho, NSEWC vice president James Jugli, NSEWC programme coordinator and state silver medalist Arif Siddiqui had to return back without reaching the main spot on Saturday following bad road conditions.

The national level 5 day event is jointly organized by Namchik Valley Society for Eco-Tourism & Wildlife Conservation (NSEWC) Jairampur in collaboration with Society for Echo Awareness & Conservation of Wildlife (SEACOW) Miao at Miao from July 19 to July 22 next.

As it was inaccessible by motor vehicles, we decided to abandon the previous venue and shifted it to Miao for the successful conclusion of the event, informed Phupla Singpho.

Except for the change in venue, there are no other major changes, the programme will start as per the schedule and the delegates will be lodged at SEACOWS IB at Miao, Singpho added. Butterfly India Meet is an annual programme organized in different destination every year and India’s revered environmentalists and lepidopterists participate in this meet regularly.

In 2006, NSEWC has hosted the meet in Jairampur which has brought laurel to the state as well as in the map of Lepidopterist worldwide.

A butterfly conservation area at Lalpool (7 Km from Jairampur) was also inaugurated during that time which is one of its kinds in entire India. This year, NSEWC has been able to bag the honor to host the event in Arunachal Pradesh for second time that too in Miao, at the vicinity of famous Namdapha National Park which is considered as one of the best spot for butterflies across the globe.

We are ready to welcome the guest, all the preparations has been completed and the delegates from Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kerala, Kolkatta, Hyederabad will start coming from July 18, said joyous NSEWC vice president James Jugli.

Besides it, the Asian Wildlife Foundation, Hyderabad is sending nine delegates, famous wildlife and nature photographer of India  Suman Sinha who hails from Orissa will also participate along with wildlife photographer, naturalist and tour operator Satyendra Tiwari from Madhya Pradesh who is attending the event to comprehend the potential of nature tourism in the state.

Divulging about the attraction of the programme, NSEWC programme coordinator informed that every evening during the meet, there will be programme of moth sighting; it is believed that thousands of unlisted moths are fluttering across this rain forest since ages, informed progarmmes coordinator Arif Siddiqui.

At the end of the meet, all the sighted checklist of rare or new butterflies, dragonflies, damselflies, and moths will be handed over to the Field Director, Tiger Project Namdapha which will help us to comprehend about the various species available in the park, he added.

On July 22, a programme with the theme, ‘Breakfast with Butterflies’ will edify the students, Panchayat leaders, public leaders, HoDs about the significance of conservation of forest and wildlife.

We hope that this programme will add another feather in the state’s nature tourism as well as help the world to know more about our state, he said


Governor and Chief Minister discuss state issues, reviews PM’s package

ITANAGAR, July 11:  The Governor General J.J Singh has discussed various vital issues relating to the development of the state with the Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu when the latter called on him at Raj Bhawan here this evening.

The meeting dwelt on many issues ranging from law and order in the state, rising and class composition of Arunachal Scouts, development of tourism sector and promotion of rural development programmes, besides review of the projects under implementation as part of the PM’s package.

The Governor informed that during his meeting with the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh at New Delhi on June 15 last, he had impressed upon the Prime Minister for release of funds for completion of Itanagar Water Supply Project and Greenfield Airport project at Itanagar both under PM’s package, the progress of which are being held up due to non release of fund from the Centre. While disclosing that the Prime Minister had assured to look positively into the issues, General Singh told that he has pleaded for 100% grant from the Central government for the Greenfield Airport project for which the Ministry of Civil Aviation is insisting on the state government funding to the extent of 10% of the total project cost which would be difficult to bear for a state like Arunachal Pradesh at present.

While discussing the law and order issues in the state, it was felt that induction of additional battalions of Assam Rifles along the Myanmar Border in Tirap and Changlang districts could take place once additional Battalions of Assam Rifle were raised. Regarding raising of Arunachal Scouts, General Singh expressed that recruitment of the battalion should be on the pattern of Ladakh Scouts and all the operational posts should be reserved for Arunachali youth, adding that the recruitment rallies for Arunachal Scouts should be held within the state of Arunachal Pradesh only. The Governor further felt that at least three more battalions should be sanctioned by the Government of India in a phased manner over a period of three years.

Speaking on the tourism sector, Gen Singh called for setting up of state government tourism counters at Kolkata, New Delhi and Gauhati Airports. The meeting also discussed on Adventure Tourism Project at Jote-Poma Village, a model project of international standard for the entire state, promotion of tourism at Ganga Lake and implementation of the PPP projects in each district for promotion of tourism sector in the state.

Discussing on rural development projects, the Governor said that fund for one more project in the line of Poma Bamboo Processing centre has been allocated in the current financial year for cane processing and requested the Chief Minister to allocate funds for extension of road from Bamboo Processing centre to Poma village school for smooth mobility of the people and visitors as well.

Besides other issues, the duo also discussed sustainable economic generation activities for economic empowerment of the people including promotion of organic farming, bee-keeping and horticulture activities in the state and innovative means of developing power through forest waste such as dry leaves and grass.

SIC Arunachal Pradesh’s impressive records

ITANAGAR, July 11: Arunachal Pradesh, winner of the Best Information Commission Award, strictly enforced people’s right to information leading to highest public satisfaction in the country.

It is the first commission to have issued bailable arrest warrant against an officer who did not comply with its orders. It also imposed penalty in every case of RTI violation – these practices ensured more than 90% compliance to their orders – maximum in the country.

The commission was declared the winner because it did not close a case until a citizen reported compliance. This led to a public satisfaction of more than 80%.  This means that if 100 people approached Arunachal Pradesh Information Commission, more than 80 of them finally got the information they were seeking. This is almost three times the national average of 26%.

In 45 cases that it disposed, penalties were imposed on 25 officers in 2006-07. In the calendar year 2008, they imposed penalties in 18% cases.

These were the finding of a study conducted by Delhi based Public Cause Research Foundation, which conducts the RTI Awards every year. In the year 2009, the commission became the only commission to issue bail-able arrest warrants against an officer who did not comply with commission’s orders. During 2008, the commission issued 43 orders, out of which 40 orders were passed in favor of disclosures. On an average, it takes four months time between filing an appeal and getting information after all the hearings in this state.

ANSU calls for govt action to improve attendance in interior areas

ITANAGAR, July 11: Taking serious exception of the irregularity and non-performance of teachers and the Govt. Officers posted in the interior places, the All Nyishi Students Union demands the state Govt. to pass an executive order empowering the district administration to take stern action against them.

In a press statement today, ANSU president Niglar Veo said: “It has been observed that the Govt. officers posted in the interior out posts are discharging their duty from the district Head Quarters or in the place of their convenience on account of which the public do not get their due service from the Govt. functionaries and have to walk hundreds of miles even for a single signature. The irregularity of officers is also one of serious factor for the wanton and rampant migration from rural areas to the towns and as a result, the law and order problem in the towns is deteriorating day by day”. The Union, while observing the performance of certain district administrations, expresses its sincere appreciation to Bidol Tayeng, the Deputy Commissioner of Kurung Kumey district for putting all his effort to streamline the working of the Govt. officers and the teachers posted in their respective places and as result, most of the officers have withdrawn from the district head quarter and working at the out-post areas. The Union urged the elected leaders, panchayat members, local officers and all other sections to join hand with such a commendable officer to realize the need of the common people of such a backward district.

Speaking about officials of East Kameng district, he said that Seppa, the district head quarter has become the transit camp for all official works of the out-post areas. The commoners have to walk by foot for more than 100 kilo meters only for a simple work and sometimes, the officer remains absent even in the district head quarter.

The Union urged the district administration to take a serious administrative action against such absentees and to lift or ban the transit camp system in the head quarter.

While appreciating the introduction of the RTE in the state with the constitutional enactment as a part of visionary educational policy of the Union Govt. of India, the Union expressed resentment over the failure in abiding by the provision of the enactment by certain Govt. schools in the state capital. The Union urged the education department to investigate into the matter and punish the authority of the concerned schools. Further, the Union, as a reminder to the earlier Memorandum, demanded the Ministry of Education department to streamline the posting-transfer system of the teachers and to immediately implement the state education policy Bill 2010 in letter and spirit.


Khandu advocates for cent percent locals for Arunachal Scout

ITANAGAR July 11: Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu has extended his sincere gratitude to Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Defence Minister A K Antony, Minister of State for Defence Palam Raju, Principal Secretary to Prime Minister T K A Nair, Army Chief Gen. V K Singh and Additional Defence Secretary Sekhar Agarwal for their assurance to rise three additional battalions of Arunachal Scouts which totals to 4 battalions now.

The assurance came when the high level team led by the CM called on the Defence Minister at New Delhi recently.

“The meetings with various Union Ministers, top Army officers and Bureaucrats was very fruitful as after three years the demand for raising of Arunachal Scouts have been addressed”, a seemingly happy and  satisfied Khandu said who landed here in the state capital yesterday evening from New Delhi.

Khandu advocated for recruitment of local youths for the Arunachal Scout including the 1st Battalion of Arunachal Scout, unlike Ladakh Scouts and Kumaun Scouts where a considerable number of recruits are drawn from outside the states. He further disclosed that he had already indicated the ministry that there’s no dearth of fit youths in the state for immediate rising of four such battalions.  “The establishment of Arunachal Scouts would serve the security interest of the country and the state better if suitable candidates are selected exclusively from amongst youths of Arunachal tribes”, Khandu said and had written to the PM and Defence minister in this line. On justifying his stand, the chief minister said that the local youths would be physically more suited to high altitudes hilly terrains and more resourceful as guides and interpreters to facilitate the Army, besides providing the youths, employment and chance to participate in the cause of security of the nation.  

The Union Defence ministry has agreed in principle to all the request made by the state, Khandu informed. (PRO TO CM)


Too many lies

Tom Simai

In fact, too many lies have been told by the Chakma refugees, in order to gain sympathy of international communities and National Human Rights Commission. Time after time, all their deceitful plots against the tribal state has triumphed because of the fact, none of us; the indigenous community ever endeavored to dig the truths or countered their canard allegations.

But then, for how long a battle can be fought, with the weapons of lies and by shrouding the truth. Someday, the truth has to amble towards the lights and I believe it’s time for the world to comprehend about the prevailing prevarications, which the Chakma refugees have fabricated by distorting the facts. And this is one of those truths that will not only expose the baleful approach of the Chakma refugees but also shock and shiver the thought process of every Arunachalee.

On 19 January 2006, while on a routine patrolling at Diyun Reserve Forest (DRF), Range Officer JN Chetia along with his staff and police personnel apprehended a group of Chakma refugees’ who were involved in felling trees and constructing huts inside DRF. As it was a clear violation of Forest Act, all the 22 individuals involved were arrested and produced before the court. On account of their statement, the court released 13 persons out of 22 and the remaining 9; the main culprits were remanded for further investigation. But on January 21, they too were released on bail.

This was the actual occurrence of that day, but Prabhat Chakma, a resident of Diyun circle, twisted the whole event in his writ petition, filed before the Guahati High Court (GHC). Besides forceful eviction, he accused the forest and police department officers of harassing the women sorority, torturing the arrested peoples, destructing the temporary huts and kidnapping of his 10 years old son, Gyaneswar Chakma. Though baseless, it was a grim allegation, an allegation that is known by all and the truth by none, here is the truth.

The official record clearly delineates Prabhat Chakma’s statement as false and fabricated. Firstly, all the arrested people were adults, there was no minor in the group and were released within a couple of days. Secondly, they were arrested on the spot while felling trees at the DRF so there is no question of harassing the women group or carrying out illegal eviction drive. Finally, there was no report of forceful arrest because the culprits capitulated themselves and accepted their crime, thwarting the theory of torture.    

Furthermore, the protagonist of the episode, Gyaneswar Chakma, alleged of being tortured and kidnapped by the civil police was recovered, a year later from the residence of Relief and Rehabilitation (Rtd) Director SP Talukdar, Mizoram House No 41, Chandan Nagar, Beltola, Guwahati, Assam. Interestingly, the movement of the kid in the entire episode divulges about the existing nexus of Chakma refugees.

Immediately after filling of writ petition at GHC, the kid was shifted to Itanagar from Diyun, where he was kept for about four months, and then he was taken to Kokilla in Papum-Pare district to work under Thomas Chakma. He was transferred to Guwahati by Deboranjan Chakma after 7-8 months, to work at the residence of R&R Rtd Director SP Talukdar and again 3 months later he was taken away by Montu Chakma of Diyun to New Delhi to work for Talukdar’s daughter Anjelika Chakma, an advocate at Noida.  He spent 3 months there and returned to Guwahati on the third week of October 2007. Fortunately, the police team apprehended him on 25 October 2007 from Talukdar’s residence at Guwahati.

The entire episode was stage managed, and a successful attempt to divert the focus from the original issue. It signified about the vile intention of Chakma refugees’ to create sympathy waves for their community in national and international arena by maligning the tribal state and its diligent officers. Meanwhile, the pessimistic response from the state government and inability to protect has discouraged the officers to perform their obligations properly and due to this reason the Chakma refugees has been able to spread out from their allotted blocks by defying the norms and conflicting with the local communities.

Moreover, it seems Arunahcal has become a dumping ground of refugees, and the state’s softer corner for them has elevated the timidity of locals becoming a minority in their own land. This is not only a lone case but there are uncountable cases that reveals about the strong Chakma lobby monitored by handful of Chakma refugees residing in Delhi and the state government’s inefficiency to deal with this decades old problem by bowing down to their demands, time after time.

They are no robots!

Dear Editor,

Doctors and Teachers! Amongst the ones posted to the remotest part of any land. Born to serve and never to complain. Come on folks ! They are humans, not robots ! They have a life, family, children! And most probably they joined the profession, more out of the need to provide their families, than serve humanity.

Demand of posting of doctors and teachers are genuine, no second opinion about that. But where are the quarters? Where will the children stay?

Did they forget to demand proper accommodation for these doctors and teachers from the concerned authority? No ! The contractor built quarters out of materials of inferior quality and the quarters is in shambles.

Let the doctors and teachers fend for themselves, they have no right to complain for they are being paid!

Raise age limit

Dear Editor,

Upper age limit to appear the APPSCC examinations is  28  for general category, 33 years for APST candidates and 38 years for APST in service candidates whereas in other states  like Assam  upper age limit is fixed at 42 for ST and SC candidates for such examinations. Even in UPSC too, it is 35 years for SC/ST candidates.

The civil service examinations in our state have been conducted after a long gap, as a result many deserving candidates could hardly avail one or two opportunity to write this most prestigious examination due to age bar. It is a loss not only to career of deserving candidates but the state also.

Therefore, I would like to request the state Govt and APPSC to re-consider the age bar and raise the upper age limit upto to 40 years for APST candidates and  up to 45 years for APST Govt in-service candidates.

Please put advertisements

Dear Editor,

I am a regular reader of online edition of Arunachal Times either from the net service at CIC or the NIC as I stay in a flung area of a border district of Arunachal Pradesh.

Since, as an IT professional I have to serve at different part of the state where there is no telephonic service and other facilities of information, I have to rely on Arunachal Times for gathering information.

However, I would like to request you to please publish advertisements which would greatly help those who reside in far flung areas of the state.

Our patience is running out

Dear Editor,

I would like to express  my views through your esteemed daily regarding the progress of road restoration works which are going on in a snail space in between the Anini - Roing road.

As per report a seven bull dozers were deployed for road restoration works in between Hunli -Anini to the Anini-Roing sector road. But till today, there is no any tangible progress of the work as per man - machine ratio.

Our people have carried out survey of the road from Anini to Hunli and to our utter dismay, it is noticed that actually the 90% of bull dozers are old and outdated and remains defunct most of the time. That is why the progress of the work remain slow. As per our observation, the manpower is also very less.

While the nature has played a cruel joke with us, on the other hand, the BRTF authority’s lackadaisical attitudes knows no logic. Three months is a long and enough time to restore the road, if not fully but at least half of the damaged road.

At the very beginning of the calamities, the District administration have moved all concern to impress upon the BRTF authorities for quick mobilisation of men, machines and equipments for early restoration of road communication. And several correspondences have also been made with BRTF authority and to concern higher authorities of state govt. by the district administration.

Long ago, we heard that bridge components will be air lifted upto the washed out bridge point. But till today, not a single part of bridge has reached the spot.

We feel that even if the road is restored upto washed out bridge point, the people can travel somehow on transshipment basis. Miseries of our people are increasing day by day and patience is running out. The district administration is bearing the brunt as even for the minor matter, the people under desperations, constantly put pressure on them.

Therefore, I would like to request both MLAs of Anini and Roing and Rajya Sabha MP to keep in constant touch with the BRTF authorities and put pressure on them for early restoration of road communication.

I would also like to appeal the state Governor and the CM to give proper direction and put adequate pressure on the BRTF authority for early restoration of road communication.

The reason why there is no power in Pasighat in summer and in winter!

Dear Editor,

Pasighat, is reeling under the curse of darkness since last 5 days.

During summer, ask the JE, Power Department on what led to the power failure. The response would be “Kya karega pani zyada ho gaya”.

Come winter, if the same question is asked, pat comes the reply, Kya karega Paani kam ho gaya!

When I meet shopkeeper friends and enquire about their wellbeing, their response is “Kaisa Chalega yaar, Pasighat mein Jyada dhup degi tab bi current nahin, zyada barish ho tobi current nahin, Pasighat ke liye cloudy mausam hi tikh rehegi”.

As was the case with me, every football lovers of the district missed Semi final matches of FIFA World Cup due to Power failure in the district. May few of them were lucky enough to afford to DG set might have watched the game.

And fear is that we may miss the final match also!

We have a Yembung Mirco-Hydel that is almost defunct after 2000 flood. Why doesn’t the Power Department renovate and revive it and make it functional completely since it can satisfy the power needs of Pasighat town?

Peoples of Pasighat are all set to celebrate 100 years of its existence by this year-end. But unfortunately, Pasighat does not have 100MW of power of its own even after 100 years of its existence of!

The town is compelled to depend on NEEPCO, Ranganadhi that seems to take a long road to reach Pasighat and sometimes it fails to reach, due to some or other reasons.

Indeed, best weather for best power supply system in Pasighat is cloudy weather. After all, according to JE there is no power supply in summer because there is too much water gushing out or if it is winter the hydel refuse to work because there is no shortage of water!!!!

Don’t waste the services of specialized doctors

Dear Editor,

I would like to draw the attention of authority concerned and the enlightened denizens of the state that unlike other states, Health Department of Arunachal Pradesh is neglecting and ignoring its responsibility by appointing clinical specialized doctors in the post of nodal/programme officers like DRCHO, DTO, DSO, DML,O and even as State level Programme officer, causing great losses to the peoples of the State as once these specialized doctors are appointed they do not attend to the patients in the govt. hospitals. Whereas, the Government of Arunachal Pradesh spends huge funds and sponsors these doctors for specializing in various subjects. On the other hand, everyone wish to go to the specialized doctors for better treatment but in vein as they have been engaged for programming and management subject.

I therefore, like to implore the competent authority to revise the current policy. If the present trend of appointing pattern is continued, there will be no single specialized doctors in the government hospital in future.
