How many speak in our
This is in response to news item under the heading "Siram urges centre to include
Arunachal languages in Bharat Bhasa Vikas Yojna" which is a good idea.
The languages of Arunachal are endangered and who is responsible? We are!!!! It is
the time to do something to preserve our languages. Today if our languages are endangered,
it’s not because of anyone but because of ourselves.
How many of us use our tribal language to communicate among your fellow tribe friends?
Answer would be only few. Today how many of the parents of urban areas use own language
at home with their children?
Again the answer would be few. Now how many high school or college students speak
their own language with people of the same tribe? Again the answer would be few.
The reason-they are shy to speak their language as if they were born at some western
countries. The other possible reason is they dont know because since childhood their
parent taugh them Hindi or Assamese. No one will teach us our own language unless
parents start at home.
If the same trend continues, the time is not so far to read in history syllabus the
names of Arunachal languages. Dear parents, you can bring a change.
Messages far detached from
Through the column of your esteemed daily and with a begging of an apology to the
concerned people this article is directed to, I would like to express my hard-lined
view, as I feel it may also be the true perception of any common person of our state.
Like every year, this year too, on the occasion of the World Environment Day, the
Governor, the CM and the Environment Minister relayed to the state the message of
environment bounty of our state, the commitment towards its protection and the harnessing
of its resources in a sustainable manner.
The messages, with an irony, under the symbol and the motive ‘satyameva jayate’,
are far detached from the truth around. Detached, I call it so, because, the messages
of biodiversities and sustainability are invalidated long back when the irresponsible
people have sounded the death knell by allowing reckless mining of natural resources,
signing of hydro power MoUs, logging of virgin forests, mindless collection of river
boulders, etc. without ever addressing their devastating consequences on the environment.
Take a trouble by stepping down from your vehicle when you see some dark foot prints
by the side of the road while ever travelling to district headquarter Changlang,
follow them and you will find a cleverly hidden coal depot by some bamboo grooves.
That is how our environment caretakers are committing themselves to papers, faraway
from the ground realities.
Kharsang the treasure trove of the black gold-coal and petroleum, if you would have
had visited recently, you would have had a sore eye seeing the plundering of the
natural covering of the mountains that used to be covered with green forest. I wonder
how sustainable are the planners and the profit makers going to make the environment
for the poor villagers there.
Not to mention of the several timber saw mills packed in a single stretch of compound
that are working full time on the other side of the Namchik river. The verdict of
the supreme court of India failed to make any impact beyond the huge gates of the
mills’ compound. Consequently, the felling of trees is same or even worse not sparing
even the few years’ old immature trees.
True to our position in the top of the ecological pyramid, we are outright consumers
that know only to gather and consume and hardly able to provide anything to our environment
back. The greedy planners and the profiteers are as good as the owner in the story
‘the golden egg laying chicken’. Out of his greediness the owner killed the chicken
thinking that he can get all the golden eggs at one go instead of nurturing it for
it to keep laying the golden eggs for a long time.
We all agree that development comes at a cost, but, the cost must not be so high
as to obliterate the existence of our whole future generations. Mindless exploitation
of our environment is like committing a homicide, an act that will slowly but certainly
kill the future generations by choking the environment that might have sustained
Try to ponder deeply, that, we are living in a unique planet called earth. We must
not think that the action in some far of place will not affect us here or our action
here will not affect some far of place. Countries are bounded, not the planet earth.
This is with reference to the various events following the midnight raid on Baba
Ramdev and his supporters. There cannot be two opinions on stopping corruption as
it has penetrated every system in the country. It depends on a person’s will to remain
non-corrupt and Baba Ramdev is no exception. I feel he did not deserve the importance
the government gave him. Top ministers went to meet him as the government did not
want any trouble. It is unfortunate that Baba Ramdev took this as a sign that
he had become very big. His concept of black money seems to be that one can go to
the Swiss banks and bring the list of depositors here to be punished. He conveniently
forgets that for the Swiss banks it is all white money. Let Baba Ramdev focus on
yoga and serve humanity instead of disturbing law and order.

APSCW enquiry committee on Daporijo MMS scandal reveal startling details
ASI Bo and Head Constable Duyu Tatu accused in rape cases too
ITANAGAR, June 8: The 3-member enquiry committee constituted by Arunachal Pradesh
State Commission for Women (APSCW) to investigate the infamous Daporijo MMS case
has found ASI B. Bo guilty of forcing two minors to commit immoral act in public
place and held him prime accused of the whole episode.
“ASI Bo and Head Constable Duyu Tatu, who had track record of criminal activities,
Constable Rajesh Nayam and Constable Tapor Naroh have committed heinous crime by
forcing two minors to perform sexual act in public place and taking its photograph
with ulterior motive which is contrary to their pledge of allegiance to uphold the
rule of law and prevent crime in the society as a member of law enforcing authority,”
the committee headed by APSCW vice chairperson, in its report submitted to APSCW
after conducting a thorough inquiry into the whole episode, said. Prior to the MMS
scandal, both Bo and Duyu were accused of rape cases and suspended from their services
when they were in the rank of constables. However, they were acquitted from the cases
on ‘certain grounds,’ the committee informed.
Questioning the promotion of both the police personnel despite of their criminal
track record, the committee demanded for constitution of a high level inquiry committee
headed by an officer not below the rank of SP, preferably an IPS cadre, to enquire
the legitimacy and genuineness of their promotion.
It also questioned as to why the Daporijo Police did not maintain the General Diary
(GD) of the police station referring the detention of both the victims since maintenance
of GD in police station is a must as it demanded investigation regarding non-maintenance
of the GD. It also urged the authority to find out the person (s) and source of the
MMS to ascertain that whether it (video clips) was circulated for commercial purpose
or other malevolent interest and intentions.
“The Government should provide Rs.5 Lakh each to both the victims on compensation
ground for violating their freedom of rights guaranteed to its citizen by the Constitution
of India under Art. 12, damaging the career of both the teenagers as well as tarnishing
the reputation of the victims’ families by men in uniform, the recommendation letter
Meanwhile, it suggested that the judgement of DK Bosu of Supreme Court, which came
in light of the abuse of power by police and issues of custodial violence to protect
the rights of the accused, should be strictly followed by all the police stations
in the state.
Other suggestions include installation of CCTVs in all police stations, establishment
of full-fledged central jails in all the district headquarters, precautionary measures
to prevent recurrence of such incidents, full and smooth implementation of Juvenile
Justice Board/Child Welfare Committee, including juvenile homes in all the district
headquarters. Earlier, briefing the media persons about the whole incident and Commission’s
initiative to deliver justice to the victims, APSCW chairperson Komoli Mossang, informed
that the report and recommendation of the enquiry committee were also submitted
to the State Chief Minister, Home Minister, Deputy Inspector General of Police, Upper
Subansiri SP, DC and Arunachal Pradesh State Social Welfare Board for immediate

Union territories, Bosiram Siram stressed on the issue of untrained teachers in the
state. He said that untrained teachers remain a major problem in the state further
compounded by acute shortage of teachers training institutions. He said that the
existing DIET’s are very limited to meet up the need while adding that 23 BRCs be
strengthened to impart teachers training programme.

communication bottleneck, huge backlog of untrained teachers and poor economic condition
of the people in spite of that the state has launched multi-pronged strategies to
tackle the problems of education sector and adopted entire centrally sponsored schemed
to initiate educational reforms in the state. Further he demanded for adequate sanctioning
of posts of Science, Maths and Language (Hindi) teachers because the state is suffering
with the acute shortage in this regard.
He added that the residential facilities if extended more in numbers in the remote
areas of Arunachal Pradesh for both teachers and students can really contribute much
to reduce teacher’s absenteeism and drop out of students. More number of KGBV in
the state can improve the status of the girls because emergence of KGBV has become
a boon for the tribal girls in the state. He also pleaded for the extension of Management
Monitoring Evaluation and Research in the centrally sponsored schemes.
On the issue of RTE status, school mapping and teachers education which were the
parts of agenda of the conference, Siram focused on the state government preparedness

City police arrests cheater
ITANAGAR, June 8: The long hands of the law caught up with Prakhanjit Gogoi, master
mind in the cheating of people of the state to the tune of few crores of rupees.
Prakhanjit Gogoi S/O Sushil Gogoi, resident of Bhojo Mahamara, Dibrugarh is the
sixth arrest that Itanagar Police had made in connection with Itanagar PS Case NO.57/10
U/S 120/34 IPC. Earlier other accused and co-conspirators namely Jyoti Bora, Mridul
Sharma, Bitu Choudhury, Prasana Sonowal and Krishna Kanta Das were arrested from
different parts of Assam. The mastermind Prakhanjit Gogoi after committing the crime
went underground and was hiding in one of the remote villages in Namrup, Dibrugarh,
but the long hands on law caught up with him, informed City SP CHuku Apa.
The modus operandi of the gang is that they had opened a well furnished and impressive
office in Kahilipara area of Guwahati under the name and style of G-10 Infratech
and prepared number of false/fake DPR for laying of OPC lines from Itanagar to Doimukh
and Ziro. They also obtained a fake work order purported to be from the reputed Telecom
Company like Reliance, Aircel, Airtel, running into crores of rupees. They would
express their desire to sub let the works to the locals of the area for execution
to which many fall prey. The fake work orders with the DPR are awarded to the intending
contractors and collected huge money from the contractors under the pretext of commissions
and for payment to the company. The gullible people paid huge money towards commission
to the G-10 Infratech, Guwahati without verifying the authenticity of the work. After
collecting huge money approximately Rs.1.28 crores, the gang closed the office and
Prkhanjit after duping people has invested the money in other contract works. Prakhanjit
Gogoi read upto class-XII and his father is an employee of OIL India, Duliajan.

of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) Arunachal state Unit carried in local dailies
in which it had cautioned the BJP on issues of corruption and black money in the

statement made just for cheap media coverage.

from the core issues.
The polluted situations of PDS in Arunachal Pradesh have been directly linked with
the central NCP leaders in the Union Ministry, it said.
The BJP would rather like to support and extend co-operation to other Political Parties
and Organizations on the various important public issues and resolve the grievances
in the larger interest of the people of Arunachal Pradesh.

fund by WRD Basar Division.
It said that the Union had asked for explanation in white paper. But the department

last AOP to the department. The funds had been drawn as per the targets projected
in the AOP but it has been not utilized as per the target and for which the fund
was allocated. The utilization of fund is totally unknown to the masses and mysteriously
the fund has been almost used up, it said.
We have been pursuing the department to furnish the information regarding the utilization
of fund but they are unable to do so. By not replying to the information sought in
this regard through the RTI Act, they have even breached the right of seeking information.
