WWF-India research team sight rare mammal
Guwahati, Jul 15: A team of WWF-India officials working in West Kameng district of
Arunchal Pradesh has stumbled upon a rare species of mammals that, till now, was
believed to be endemic to Yunan province of China.
The black pika (ochotona nigritia), a close cousin of rabbits and hares, is a small
mammal with short limbs, rounded ears, a short tail and, as the name suggests, is
covered in black fur. Another distinctive feature of the pika is its high-pitched
distress call, which it makes when diving into its borrow on being threatened by
predators. It was discovered in China in 2000, according to a report in The Telegraph.
The WWF members sighted two black pikas in Pangila and Potok areas at an altitude
of 13,000 feet on June 22 and 23 while they, along with villagers of Thembang, were
conducting surveys in the Thembang Bapu community-conserved forest area in West Kameng
district. The survey was part of a project for development of a management plan of
Senior landscape coordinator for the Western Arunachal Landscape Conservation Programme
of WWF, Pijush Kumar Dutta, said, “We took photographs of the mammals, and after
returning, consulted experts for identification of the species, based on its external
features.”He said though the mammal discovered in Arunachal resembled the black pika
found in China, genetic cross-examination was required to confirm whether it was
the same black pika or a new sub-species.
The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species has listed the black pika under the “data
deficient” category since it is a relatively new discovery and there is still very
little information on its extent of occurrence, status, threats and ecological requirements.
There is also no data on the current population of black pikas in the world.
The herbivorous pikas are members of ochotonidae, one of two families in the order
lagomorpha, the other being the leporidae family (rabbits and hares).
Arunachal Pradesh, with the eastern Himalayan ranges extending into its western part
and its wide range of endangered and endemic flora and fauna, is among the 200 globally
important eco-regions of the world.

of the state as expected.

ITANAGAR, July 15: All West Kameng Students Union (AWKSU) has urged the state Govt
to take immediate steps against illegal appointments in C & D group being carried
out under various departments in West Kameng district.
Alleging corruption in appointments to the group C and D posts in the district by
some top bureaucrats, the union said that the post of a peon which was lying vacant
at Govt middle school, Sangthi, Dirang was filled up without following recruitment
rules. Later the appointee was posted and transferred at Pasighat by the directorate
of school education vide its letter No ED.2/143/2011, Dt April 4, the union added.
The post of the peon had fallen vacant after the death of one Dorjee Khandu, but
the daughter of Dorjee was not given chance though she had applied for the same post
on compassionate ground, the union resented. Thus a bonafide candidate was deprived
from her right to job, the union claimed.
AWKSU urged the Govt to take action against the high level officers responsible for
such appointment and also appealed to all the MLAs of the district to check corrupt
practices so that bonafide candidates are not deprived from their right to job.

Off season vegetable crops encouraged
Aalo Jul 15: A District Level Training on Horticulture and Off Season Vegetable Crops
was held at Sago under Extension Reforms Programme by ATMA West Siang District recently.
More than 150 farmers from the twin villages of Sago and Piri attended the training.
Sago in the Basar circle has a peculiar climate which is suitable for temperate fruits
like Apple and Kiwi and the training was focused mainly keeping in view the above
climate condition and other off season crops.
As resource person Tobom Bam, HDO (Basar) and Henrik Basar, HDO (Aalo) gave detail
deliberation on the importance and scope of Apple and Kiwi cultivation. J. Yomcha
ADO (Yomcha), T. Bam ADO (Basar), N. Riba, ADO (Aalo) and N. Loya, ADO (Aalo) dwelt
at length on package of practices of Off Season Vegetables, Turmeric, Ginger and
pest & disease management of Cereal crops.
My memory flashes back to your newspaper published on 8th August 2009, where it was
published that the cabinet has approved the recruitment of J/Ts and S/Ts through
APPSC, but surprisingly the interview for the S/Ts will be again conducted by the
Department of School Education as it was seen in the advertisement for said post
on your 12th July edition.
It is also worth mentioning that, the cabinet after approving of 75 percent of the
vacant post of A/Ts of school education to be filled up from the serving SSA teachers
on the basis of year wise, batch wise, district wise through written test and viva-voce,
still fails, failed and will fail to implement.
No doubt, regularisation of SSA teacher is much to the delight of said teachers,
simultaneously money involvement in regularisation will definitely speed up the process
of regularisation as there is no tension of conducting a proper and genuine recruitment
policy. Regarding the S/Ts recruitment policy, which I think is a synonym of jackpot,
a platform to extract lakhs from a candidate with fake certificates, and neglecting
the genuine candidates who have acquired their B.Ed degree under RGU.
I earnestly appeal the concern authority to go for thorough scrutiny of B.Ed certificate,
which is available even in paan shops nowadays. The sole purpose of a teacher does
not need any explanation, as even an illiterate farmer understands the value of a
teacher and toils hard to educate his children under the protective wings of a teacher.

Defenders of democracy, do something more meaningful
Bandh is basically a strike. Everything is supposed to be closed on a day when a
Bandh is ‘called’ for. If you ask a common man about whether there should or should
not be bandhs, you will surprisingly get mixed answers. It is true because for a
bandh to be successful a lot of people have to co-operate.
I am still not sure most people know why the recent Bandh actually took place. For
those who don't know, it took place as a protest against rampant corruption in our
In our state it has become a norm for political parties and organizations/unions
to call for 'Bandh's (shutdown) when they want to be heard. Often such shutdowns
are called to exploit a political or a sensitive issue and to gain attention. Although
we have learnt to accept 'Bandh' as a mode of protest, it is not. Even though Political
parties consider that it is their fundamental right to call public shutdown, they
cause great hardship and suffering and disrupt normal life. Shutdowns are usually
forced on the people by their leaders and consequently every such act is associated
with violence resulting in loss of public and private property and injury to individuals.
The number of bandh’s in Arunachal is almost thrice the number of national/state
holidays. It is ironic how we blindly follow our leaders, than them consulting us
before resorting to such drastic measures.
Bandh's by their sheer nature are unconstitutional as they interfere with our fundamental
rights. People are forced to support shutdown by fanatic supporters and thugs by
forcibly closing shops and halting public transport. It is especially hard for people
in Arunachal as we are a developing state as compared to other states in India and
many have to rely on daily transport, wages, etc to support families. Try to take
into account about people who have to travel to other state or within the state for
medical treatment or for very urgent work which can result in loss of life or property.
Not to mention the loss of education to colleges and schools students; no wonder
why our students are doing so well in exams!!
Most of the people observe these protests on account of fear. Therefore, the success
of any such protests cannot be attributed to public opinion as it may not have been
Bandh is forceful method adopted by our leaders; it is not only undemocratic but
also unconstitutional. Why not these so called 'defenders of democracy' resort to
legal and constitutional methods such as demonstrating peaceful processions, filing
of public interest petitions, right to information, creating awareness through mass
media, holding fast etc. Most importantly why not use the powerful platform such
as Legislative assembly and Parliament, which is meant for one thing only, to give
voice to people. However, it is quite ironic that unconstitutional methods are also
being adopted inside the house of legislature when leaders stage walkouts and cause
commotion. The loss caused by such methods has been enormous to our economy and above
all to our dignity. These methods are nothing but unlawful and the sooner they are
abandoned, the better for us.
It is also high time that we adopt or rather enforce a common code of conduct for
all political parties/organizations/unions. The house of legislature is a forum for
the elected representatives, and they should debate issues of national importance
in that forum instead of disrupting life by holding public for ransom for anything
and everything that tickle their fancy. At the same time constituents should remind
their leaders of their obligation and demand that their fundamental rights are protected
at any cost.

Clarification on House Test
This is a clarification to one T. Sonam’s query about house test for Late College
and Private Candidates in affiliated colleges of Rajiv Gandhi University. This reply
would remove the confusion among the students.
First of all, after the introduction of Distance Mode of Education, Private system
in regular courses has been discontinued since 2007.
Secondly, appearance in House Test for 10 marks is compulsory for both regular and
late college students. If a candidate appeared all the House Tests but failed in
the main examination, house test mark is forwarded in the next year when the candidate
appeared for second time. But if a student fails to appear the House Test the result
in the main examination is kept withheld and in the next year the candidate can appear
as Late College. Here too, he must appear the house test.
Who is a Late College candidate; a student who has completed prescribed course (75
percent of attendance) but could not appear the examination or having appeared and
At last students are requested to know the minimum rules and regulations of examination
system to avoid losing of years; they must consult their teachers and Principals
of the concerned colleges.
Controller of Examinations
Rajiv Gandhi University,
With reference to the clarification letter dated 13th July by YD Thongchi. It is
good that a concerned officer clarified his role in alleged infamous illegal appointment
and innocent officer like him should not be dragged in controversy by virtue of his
marrying a minister’s sister, however the concerned citizen is confused because the
appointment was said to be done on 1st june 2007 on adhoc basis and put for regularisation
on 3.6 2008. Within one year it was put-up for regularisation, then again put up
for promotion to gazetted post by him. Marrying relative of minister is no problem
but putting up of the file of the relative for regularisation and promotion before
probation period itself has confused me. It will be nice if all the officer in our
state take care of all their employee like that of YD Thongchi and put up for regularisation
cum promotion within short period as many poor employee are still lingering for many
years on adhoc or temporary in many department without regularisation.
Don’t misuse the freedom
This is regarding a letter by Y D Thongchi which appeared on Reader’s Forum in your
daily on 13th of July. I am a daily reader of Arunachal times and truly appreciate
and love to read each column of this daily every morning. While I just want to share
my thoughts as I have noticed and I think many people have noticed it too. Within
these three or four months we have heard of one Sango Lamte Foundation and it has
been coming in newspaper quite often. To be honest, I really liked it and it seemed
that they were doing for a noble cause. However we never understood why SLF is only
after the minister A.Welly. It was sure and clear by reading every time that it is
politically motivated. Now that Y D Thongchi has mentioned and sweep off the dust
from it. It is clear that so called SLF is corrupt and acting under someone's influence
and such NGO's should be banned and discouraged by govt as they are misusing their
power. Tomorrow it may be someone else’s turn. We know India is democratic country
but it does not mean that given power should be misused. It should not set an example.
Guwahati (on email)
This is in reference to my earlier post "A Clarification", dated 13th July on your
esteemed daily. In the 6th paragraph I mentioned that, Chapo Cheda and Bimal Welly
met me at my residence regarding allotment of land within the compounds of ADC bunglow.
I have come to learn that the readers have misinterpreted that Bimal Welly had also
asked land inside ADC's Bunglow. What I had actually meant was that Bimal Welly brought
Chopa Cheda to my residence to introduce him to me. I would like to go on record
that it was only Chopa Cheda who had asked a plot of land within the premises of
official residence of ADC not Bimal Welly.
