Bihar headings towards period of uncertainty
The decision of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to resign has plunge grand secular
alliance into massive crisis. Mr Kumar cited irreconcilable differences with ally
RJD on the issue of corruption charges against his deputy Tejashwi Prasad Yadav for
the cause of his resignation. The sudden development throws the politics of Bihar
into chaos with no party having a majority in the 243-member Assembly. JD (U) has
71 seats, while RJD headed by Tejashwi's father Lalu Prasad, has 80. The BJP has
Shortly after Nitish Kumar dramatically resigned, Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated
him for "joining the fight against corruption." BJP has already decided to extend
support to JD (U) while Nitish himself did not rule out the possibilities of seeking
support of the BJP. The reason for resignation cited by Nitish Kumar is baffling
considering the fact that he was working with RJD Chief Lalu Yadav who has been implicated
in corruption charge in fodder scam. If Nitish was really concern about corruption
issue he had the option of not aligning with RJD at first instance. It looks like
after weighing all possibilities Nitish saw an opportunity to re-align with BJP and
form government in Bihar. This will help him to rule Bihar with the support of central
government. But Nitish has taken huge gamble by deciding to ditch RJD and Congress.
Bihar is heading towards period of political uncertainty which is not good for the
overall development of state.

I would like to draw the attention of APPSC to expedite the process of exam conduct.
I request state government machinery to provide more resources and adequate machinery
to the APPSC, so that it can conduct exam on stipulated time.
Meanwhile, the Commission should start the examination process to recruit Extension
and Economic Investigators without further delay.
We had lots of expectation in recent rationalization and transfer and posting of
teacher on the basis of length of service of teacher in school.
We thought that old teachers will be transferred out and new teachers will be posted
in the schools. Because, when Government employees stay in particular area for many
years, they become lazy and become arrogant.
In Lower Subansiri district, particularly in Ziro-I and Yazali Block, there are many
teachers, both SSA and regulars, who are in particular school for more than a decade.
In recent 1st phase transfer, many of them have not been transferred out rather
those teacher who were in school for 4-5 years have been transferred out.
Here, we would like to inform the concerned authority of that many teachers, both
SSA and regular teacher were trying to change their schools for the last many years
on health and other grounds. But still their requests have not been responded.
Therefore, we appeal to the Deputy Commissioner and DDSE of Lower Subansiri to once
again go through the profile of all teachers and make sure that those teachers who
are in particular school since their first posting are transferred out to other
schools. Because, we the parents come to now from our children that those longest
serving teachers are very irregular in their duty and when we complain, they sing
song of their seniority in the school and they even disobey their Principal/Headmaster.
We hope that concern authority will transfer out those longest serving teachers
from Ziro-I and Yazali block in second and third phase in all. This will be in the
welfare of both students and general public.
Open letter to Chief Minister
This year government talked much about rationalization of teachers by transferring
them on the basis of length of service in particular school. But after seeing
the first and second phase of transfer of teachers, we have come to conclusion that
political influence has played its game whereas government had been claiming that
no politics will be entertain in transfer of teachers. Because many teachers both
Regular and SSA teachers ( who are not at the verge of retirement) have not been
transferred out who are in the particular school since their first posting . Example
may seen in the schools of Lower Subasniri, East Siang , West Siang.
Everybody know that when any government employees stay in particular posting place
for many years, they start neglecting their duty and become arrogant. Negligence
and arrogance in teachers is not good for the future of students.
We common public has lots of expectation that this time government is very serious
to improve education scenario of government schools by transferring out old teachers
and transferring in new teachers thereby pumping in new energy in the school.
Therefore, we appeal to chief minister to treat this letter as complaint and request
of general public and do the needful by transferring all teachers who are in particular
school for last 9-10 years in third phase of transfer.
I would like to request the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission to declare
the tentative dates for the APPSCCE and Assistant Engineer Exam.
Being unemployed, lots of students like me are appearing for any and every exam that
we think we have a chance of cracking. Since APPSCCE and AE exams are tough and very
competitive, it would be very helpful to us if the Commission could declare their
This will help us in drawing up a strategy to ready ourselves for both the exams.
Right now we, especially engineering graduates, are in a confused state of mind as
to how to prepare efficiently for both the exams without a proper schedule.
