Take cue from Pakistan
The Panama papers have rocked the political establishment of Pakistan. On Friday
Pakistan's top court disqualified Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif from office after a
damning corruption probe into his family wealth, cutting short his third stint in
power and ordering a criminal investigation of his family. Sharif resigned from his
post shortly after the judgement. Sharif has always denied any wrongdoing and has
dismissed the investigation into him as biased and inaccurate.
The controversy erupted last year with the publication of 11.5 million secret documents
from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca documenting the offshore dealings of many
of the world's rich and powerful. Three of Sharif's four children -- Maryam, his
presumptive political heir, and his sons Hasan and Hussein -- were implicated in
the papers. The Panama paper has also named several Indian businessmen and Bollywood
actors of making offshore dealings. But everyone including media, civil societies
and government has kept mum on this issue. There is a need to properly investigate
into the case. The Pakistani courts have shown immense courage to take such brave
action. Can the courts in India take similar initiative and take action against those
whose name appeared in the Panama paper? People of India will be hoping that NDA
government which claims to be anti-corruption crusader will take cue from Pakistan
and take action against the people named in Panama paper.

A letter to deputy commissioner
As one of the students of Siang district, I am very pleased to know without any excitement
about the recent job vacancy ad for the post of UDC, LDC, and MTS.
This is not the first time that I am appearing for such exams in our district. It
is very sad to know that most of the exam results are predetermined.
From the past record I have experience that:
1. Entire seat belongs to the Elected Leader. Everyone knows it. So the opposition
can take it easy.
2. If the paper is set by someone from Siang district itself, then there is no surprise
that you will find his son’s and daughter’s scoring above 90%.
3. Those 5-6 inches smart phones have always been a source of answer bag to the candidate.
It is a kind request to conduct the exam for the value of the exam. We being from
a poor family do not have any political power or money to buy ourselves a seat. If
you feel that this whole idea of this letter doesn’t make any sense then please
do a check on all the previous recruitment to get a glimpse of what I am trying
This is the voice of not just one candidate but the voice of 95% of the candidates.
This may be our one last hope.
An open letter to CM
Through your esteem column, I would like to draw the attention of Chief Minister,
The way WRD Department has recruited Junior Engineers (Civil) whose examination was
conducted on 13th & 14th August’ 2016, involves corruption, manipulation, favouritism
The deserving candidates were thrown out of the merit list like a thrash of garbage
and undeserved or unworthy candidates were put on merit list by manipulation, favouritism
I would also like to inform you that SP SIC Vide a case No. SIC (VIG) PS Enquiry
No. 41/2016, Dated 30-01-2017 seized all the documents including answer sheets, certified
marks related to the examination. It’s been almost 6 months now but still SIC has
made no progress.
Your dream of corruption free Arunachal is appreciable and not only I, but many people
I, as an aspirant, don’t want this case to be swept under the rug.
So, I urge you to have look into the matter and take necessary action please so
that the deserving candidates be appointed. If you really want to make corruption
free Arunachal, then please begin with WRD Department by punishing the officials
involved in the recruitment process.
As the guardian of the state, we have complete faith that you would deliver the solicited
justice to the deserving candidates.
A deserving candidate
Wear name tags
I would like to request the state police as well as central forces to wear name tag
while on duty. Many law keepers doesn't like when we ask them their names.
I request all to wear name tags as provided.
I would like to draw the attention of State Project Director, SSA Rajya Mission,
Itanagar that the written examination for the post of Accountant which was conducted
on July 23 at Govt Higher Secondary School, Kankar Nallah, Naharlagun was not fair.
In Room No one, a guy entered almost 13- 17 minutes late at exam hall and used a
cell phone. When the examiner told him that the cell phones are not allowed, he ignored
It was clearly mentioned that no candidates, who are late would be allowed entry
to exam hall and there was restriction on cell phones and other electronic gadget.
Why did the examiner allowed him inside the exam hall?
