State govt testing patienceof capital denizen
Capital administration and Highway authorities are virtually testing the patience
of the people of capital complex. Because of the washing away of portion of road
along NH 415, traffic between Itanagar and Naharlagun has been made one way. Those
coming from Naharlagun are diverted to Jullang road in order to reach Itanagar. But
the condition of Jullang road is in horrible condition. Commuters using the said
road are facing torrid time. Now it takes almost 3 hour to reach Itanagar using Jullang
road. The horrific traffic congestion is becoming unbearable for the commuters.
There was hope that capital administration along with PWD highway will speed up the
work for repairing of NH 415. But to the utter dismay of capital denizens so far
no concrete steps has been initiated to start the repairing work. The weather condition
has also improved and it has opened up window of opportunities for the department
to carry out the repairing work. The worsening traffic situation is deeply frustrating
the citizens. Government of Arunachal should be sensitive towards problems affecting
its citizens. The way they are keeping mum on this issue, it seems like govt is least
bother. Though the state is facing difficult time due to monsoon fury, Deputy CM
Chowna Mein who also holds PWD portfolio is touring Thailand. There is not a single
word from Chief Minister Pema Khandu regarding traffic chaos engulfing capital complex.
The political bosses and bureaucrats are behaving as if nothing has happened. This
callousness attitude hurts the sentiments of the people of capital complex.

When is road going to be repaired?
Through your esteemed daily, I want to have the kind attention of Executive Engineer,
Highway and the Capital Complex adminstration. It has been almost two weeks that
NH 415 is made one way.
Public has cooperated with the department with a belief that restoration of NH 415
will be done at earliest and small comfort we get in driving in NH will be returned.
But to our dismay, we do not find a single machinery or men working on road restoration.
Are they waiting for more damage so that they can claim more money?
If it is going to be delayed further, allow us to take NH 415 for travelling to
Itanagar. As Jullang road is at its worse, we are at receiving end in terms of fuel
expenses and vehicle maintenance cost.
Misuse of Power
In the Childhood, I enjoy Musical Chair during the Independence and Republic Day.
Now, musical is being played in the department of health, Arunachal Pradesh.
The Govt cannot determine the senior and Junior among the doctors. Newly promoted
to the post of SMO has been appointed as DRCHO. The SMO (SG) is deprived. What is
Now, department has seen appointment of many fake nurses.
The authority knows very well but did not take any drastic action against the erring
officials and officers.
Fake doctor has been arrested immediately than why the fake nurses has not been
It is clearly known that department is involved in the matter.
So, I request the Chief Minister, Govt. of Arunachal Pradesh to take immediate action
against the erring officials and officers who are involved and save life of people
of Arunachal Pradesh.
Unaffordable tuition fees
Through the columns of your esteemed news paper, i would like to request the concerned
authorities to kindly intervene in the overcharging of tuition fees by the government
Few days ago, it was brought to my notice when my mother came back tired in the
She told me that she paid all the money that she had for the month for my sister's
tuition. The tuition fees was woofing Rs 1000 per subject. These are not just fees,
these are atrocities commited by the teachers in such a gruesome and terrible ways
to the family of student.
When i happened to be the student of class 11th science, there used to be a teacher
who took fees in advance. Further, he used to threaten us that if anyone does not
pay the fees in advance he should not have the audacity to come to tuition.
One day to my utter surprise, my friend was asked to pack his bag and go back to
his home just because he didn't pay the fees in advance.
There are lots of such incidents that mentally frustrates the student and makes them
focus on the money rather than studies.
The GoAP pays them salary that is enough to live a lavish lifestyle, then why do
they deliberately want so much money?
These are people that fracture the economy of the state and lure the innocent tribal
from poverty to extreme proverty.
My point here is not to criticize the teachers but to make them understand not everyone
can afford their fees. Make teaching a hobby not business.
Therefore, i would like to request Students organisation, parents and other concerned
authorities to kindly look into the matter so that the fees are affordable.
A concerned citizen,
Some suggestions for teachers recruitment
Through your esteemed daily, I would like to suggest some of my views regarding the
regularisation of SSA Teachers.
As a concerned citizen of this beautiful state, I would like to see the concern department
to recruit the most qualified and deserving candidate in education sector.
So as a concerned citizen of Arunachal Pradesh, I would like to suggest Education
department to find out a mechanism to regularise all the in-service SSA Teacher on
certain terms and condition.
Firstly, TET passed should be a minimum criteria to become a teacher as per present
NCTE norms. Secondly, inservice SSA Teacher serving under govt of Arunachal Pradesh
should be provided special age relaxation to appear for APTET.
Thirdly, strictly follow the TET Paper, such as paper-I and Paper-II.
Lastly, I request the concern authority to speed up the regularisation process and
adopt a fair means to recruit teachers.
