Punish the murderer
The killing of an innocent villager at Changlang allegedly by Assam Rifles marks
new low in the counter insurgency operation in Arunachal Pradesh. One Thingtu Ngemu
was killed in a case of mistaken identity. There is no justification for such gruesome
act in a civilized society. The perpetrators of such heinous crime should be strongly
punished. People of the troubled districts of Tirap, Changlang and Longding are often
caught between security forces and underground groups.
Several UG group like NSCN (IM), NSCN (K) etc operates in the three districts. In
the past on several occasions factional clashes broke out between these groups due
to which people have suffered a lot. Also in the name of carrying out counter insurgency
operation the security forces has been alleged of harassing innocent people. But
this is for the first time that an innocent citizen has been murdered by the security
forces. They cannot just wash off their hands citing 'mistaken' identity as excuse.
People responsible for the murder of innocent citizen should be held accountable.
State government should take this incident seriously and put pressure on government
of India to rein these military personnel. These kinds of incidents will lead to
breakdown of relation between civilian and armed forces which can catastrophic effect
on a sensitive border state like Arunachal Pradesh.

Appeal for fair exam

cancel all RMSA IT teacher result of other districts and let the exam be conducted
at Itanagar centre for every district , for fair exam.

Why should the rules be different for Papum Pare and East Siang where there are
more qualified candidates?
And also the questions were very tough and no candidate would have qualified the
exam but with the help of mobile phones, some of candidate qualified. Is this recruitment
Even some of my seniors who are brilliant and very good in the core subjects could
not qualify but how come some candidate who are very poor in studies qualified.
What is the need of GK &GE to teach computer science ?
The dept should conduct walk in interview to see the teaching ability and subject
knowledge of a particular candidate.
