Dr Samson Borang
Don’t hide posts, give it to APPSC
I would like to appeal from deepest core of my heart to the people's first govt.
of Arunachal Pradesh, Civil society, students organization and conscious citizens
of this land of Khushi-Murjhi to at least raise a voice against various departments
who does not recommend vacant post (Grade A and Grade B) to State Public Service
Commission for fair and unbiased selection of candidate. There are instance where
Grade A and B officers post are being illegally appointed by various department by
the means of '' walk- in- interview'' or ''contractual appointment system''. Thus,
no candidate have faith, except those who belongs to elites groups in the deptt.
concerned for the fair recruitment of the officer level post. Thousands of aspiring
candidate have some faith left on the lone State Public Service Commission for free
and fair selection of candidate. Therefore, seeing the less nos. of post being advertised
recently by APPSC throws a light on the intention of the various deptt. who despite
post being lying vacant choose not give the APPSC. So that, the post can be appointed
illegally to the kith's and kin’s of the elite society.
Therefore, I on the behalf of thousands of aspiring candidate would like to appeal
govt. of Arunachal Pradesh under the leadership of Chief Minister Jarbom Gamlin to
please ensure that every deptt must recommend the vacant post to APPSC for selection
of right and suitable candidate who could help in shaping our state's future. And
special appeal to civil society and students union to help in ensuring the post to
be recommend in this APPSC examination by putting pressure to the concerned dept,
who are adamant not give the post to APPSC.

A lesson to be learnt from others
While going through the news, published on 7th June, 'Promoters disappointed with
tourism infrastructure' I felt that it was really an eye opener for the Tourism department.
As rightly indicated by the team of Kolkota based Tourism promoters, the basic problem
of tourism sector needs to be modified. I too believe that the main problem lies
in the infrastructure where most of the accommodation facilities does not provide
or meet the basic standard and most of accommodation facilities are being controlled
by Government bodies whereas involvement of local entrepreneurs are required to build
tourist lodges, home stay accommodation without damaging the nature and local environment.
Our state is naturally a gifted state with vast accumulation of flora and fauna,
beautiful mountains and rivers, different types of culture and beautiful places having
archeological significance. To sum up our state's potential to become tourism land
cannot be defined until one visit and explores it fully. Such is the vastness of
the beauty of our state that one has to come again and again to give the final verdict
'how beautiful is our state 'Arunachal Pradesh'.
Our govt. must know that with the natural potential alone we cannot dream of becoming
a perfect tourism state. Govt must need to learn some lesson from the other tourism
state in northeast like Meghalaya and Sikkim .
Shillong is not just called the 'Scotland of East' because of its natural potentiality
but because of its people's and governments efforts to preserve and maintain the
natural beauty. In Shillong almost all the tourist sites are owned and maintained
by the local entrepreneurs.
Hope our government and the tourism department will learn from the drawbacks submitted
in the reports by the Kolkata based tourism promoters and rectify it soon to make
‘Arunachal Pradesh’ a true paradise for visitors.

Policemen rather the Police and GBs should work together as team and help each other
for the betterment of the society, the SP exhorted.

Security for RTI activist Payi
ITANAGAR, June 11: Feyang Gyadi, wife of RTI activist and Sango Lomte Foundation
chairman Payi Gyadi, has appealed to the Director General Police (DGP) to provide
police protection to ensure safety and security of her husband.
Pointing out the recent incident at Nirjuli in which a pistol and suspected hand
grenades were found from the private car of Payi Gyadi, Feyang said that such criminal
act was a clear indication to eliminate her husband just for exposing corrupt deeds
of some politicians and officials.
In her letter to DGP, Feyang said that her husband along with four others had lodged
an FIR at Itanagar Police Station on March 4 against Y D Thongchi, former commissioner,
art and culture and Minister Atum Welly for their alleged involvement in illegal
appointments. Even after directives from Itanagar permanent bench of Guwahati High
Court, Itanagar police is reluctant to register the case. On the other hand, Feyang
claimed, her husband has been receiving several life threatening calls from various
quarters to withdraw FIR. Feyang questioned the wisdom of the Itanagar police station
and police department as a whole as to why despite written and verbal request, the
police protection is not yet extended to her husband.
She claimed that her husband’s life is at stake in the hands of the henchmen of corrupt
politicians and bureaucrats due to inaction of the Police Itanagar in particular
and police department as a whole.
Meanwhile, Kameng Citizen Rights also demanded police protection to RTI activist
and Sango Lomte Foundation chairman Payi Gyadi and his family members.
In a letter to the Home Minister the Rights further said that an inquiry committee
be set up to unearth all truth behind the Nirjuli incident in which a pistol and
suspected explosive materials were found from the car of Gyadi. It further said that
the culprit involved in the whole episode should be booked.

protection to Payi Gyadi despite he was receiving life threat from several quarters.

Investigative journalist and admirer of Arunachal Jyoti Dey shot dead
ITANAGAR, June 11: Jyoti Dey, a prominent journalist working with English daily Mid-Day
newspaper was shot dead today in broad daylight at Mumbai by four unknown bike borne
persons. 56 year old Dey, a native of West Bengal was one of the most popular journalists
of India who had incredible knowledge about Mumbai underworld gangs. He had access
to underworld dons like Dawood Ibrahim, Chota Rajen and others. He had authored two
books, namely, “Zero Dial: The Dangerous World of Informers” and “Khallas”- which
are considered as dictionary on Mumbai underworld and must reference for anyone wanting
to know more about them in depth.
In recent days he had carried series of report about oil mafia of Mumbai and surrounding
areas. Late Dey was in journalism profession for last two decades and was associated
with newspapers like The Hindustan Times and Indian Express. His death comes as great
shock for people of Arunachal Pradesh as he had visited this state twice in last
one year. He had special liking for Arunachalee people and its rich tradition.
During one of the visit, sharing his concern over dying Arunachalee culture, he had
said, “Itanagar looks like one of the suburb or colony of Mumbai. I can see all people
in western outfits or in mainland Indian dresses. Wish people of AP preserve their
rich culture and mix traditional dress with modern outfits.” He had also expressed
deep concern over way various religious groups were trying to convert innocent tribal
people and believed that Arunachalee people have to stand up to safeguard their culture
from onslaught of outsider.
Despite being such a prominent journalist, he was very down to earth and man of few
During interaction with this journalist, he shared fascinating stories about Mumbai
underworld don and how he lives on the edge. “Covering crime report and that too
Mumbai underworld is very risky. Always there is threat to my life and I do take
certain precautions. Journalism world is tough but it is only profession where we
have access to even Prime Minister of India and also to autowallahs,” late Dey had
told me. He had even expressed desire to work on conflict between Arunachalee tribal
and Chakma-Hajong refugees.
Killing of late Jyoti Dey once again raised serious concern over life of journalist
who tirelessly works to expose corruption in society. In Arunachal too in the past,
many journalists had been beaten up by supporters of various politicians for exposing
their wrongdoings. There was time when Tongam Rina, the associate editor of this
daily was given death threat for writing on PDS scam. Also Appu Gapak and Nyapi Bomjen,
the two young women journalists of The Sentinel newspaper were attacked while covering
an accident incident. In Arunachal Pradesh, if anyone tries to do honest journalism
he/she is targeted individually and that forces many promising young journalists
to leave this field and look for other avenues.
Farmer club meet at Namphai
ITANAGAR, June 11: The Office Bearers of Famers’ Club from Singmao, Jotinkhaikhe,
Samkhedung and Namphainong Villages had their official meeting at the Alombro Mayu
Yaku Chi Amey Aroga (AMYAA) Office, Namphai-I, Miao today. The important meeting
was chaired by eR. K. Paul Chawang, Secretary of AMYAA (NGO).
This meeting was called by the organizing AMYAA (NGO) in keeping with the request
for application from Farmers’ Club as informed by the Branch Manager of SBI, Miao.
This information from SBI, Miao has come as a positive sign for further progress
after a long wait for farmers of the area who had joined as members of one farmers’
club or the other towards the end of 2010.
The participating farmers stated their firm commitment to developmental task once
credit facilities are availed to them by the concern nominating Banks where they
have their group accounts. Besides, farmers’ club bank credit linkage topic the
members discussed other relevant issues such as the need for formation of more farmers’
club, to work for development of the families and villages, to tap the available
resources of the government, and to make maximum utilization of the vast available
land resources. Most and foremost the farmers’ club have ardent interest to check
corruption in their own locality as per implementation of developmental schemes and
projects are concern.
R. K. Paul complimented and encouraged the farmers’ club members to be united stand
strong as neutral groups to stand against all forms of corruption practices and to
fight for genuine development of their villages. He further brought to the awareness
of the participants the present national scenario of fighting against corruption
by Veteran Social Activist Anna Hazare amidst all confusion and controversies in
the wake of Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev fight against Black Money. Empty silence and ignorant
quietness is not going to do any good for the poor in the present scenario where
corruption has entered into every fiber of the society. Corruption has blocked all
development. Corruption has victimized the poor to remain poor till their death.
Thus, it is the need of the hour that transparent pressure groups evolve to check
corruptions, to fight for the rights of the poor and to be voice of the voiceless,
