AAPSU questions govt’s lack of coordinated effort

Please don’t divide Arunachal in the name of tribes

Dear Editor,

The news under the headline "Khandu calls on centre for relaxation of Article 170 for accommodation of more ministers" does not make any sense in a state like Arunachal, where every time the Govt seems crying because of scarcity of fund for development.

28 major tribes and 110 sub-tribes are represented by the MLA's or say Law Makers. It is the inability of the policy makers who make policies not efficient enough to take care of all the tribes. Instead of accommodating more Ministers, the Government should change its policy by conducting grass root level survey of our state, and implementing the recommendations without any political biases.

By the way, we have more than enough Parliamentary Secretary wasting the states fund.

A Minister is for entire state not for the tribe he/she represents, they are for Arunachal as whole. For Humanity sake, please don't divide our beautiful and peaceful state into tribes and sub-tribes. Why can't we be proud to be a 21st Century Human?


A citizen



No truth in allegation

Dear Editor,

The statement made by Dilip Rai against Baba Ramdev in your esteemed daily is condemned for he did it to meet his selfish end. It is a baseless and shameful act for the mankind in general and the people of India in particular to defame a person who works day in and day out all 365 days to make the life of other people better.

There was no truth in the allegations. Why it was published in a Daily of this part of India instead of Sikkim and Delhi. The news makes no sense that the people of Sikkim have lost faith in Baba Ramdeve after the visit.

 I am very sorry that Dilip Chetry is intolerant towards growing popularity of Pranayam & Yog in every nook and corner of Sikkim. To brand yog a mere donation collecting activity, is to disrespect our revered yogis like Maharshi Patanjali, Lord Buddha, Mahabir, Baba Ramdev to name a few. In mathematics there is no number as hefty and is self explanatory for his validity. Nor I have ever heard of any case pending against the chief minister in Supreme Court of India.

It is expected that Dilip Chetry would give correct account of the happenings; otherwise he has no right to misguide the right thinking and rational citizen of India.

Unless the mind is without fear

Dear Editor,

Apropos the editorial "Corporal Punishment" (16 June), a society is best judged by the way it treats its children. The beastly practice of corporal punishment not only results in grave injuries and even death to students, many innocent little ones start suffering from Didaskalcinophobia ( fear of going to school), thereby affecting the career of the children. Many children get psychologically shattered forever or take resort to suicidal steps.

It is high time the teachers act as true well-wishers of their students. Instead of overburdening the students with home tasks and tests, they should inculcate in the children morals, values and allow them time and space to breathe. The faults or weaknesses in their character can be rectified by counselling and advice, not by ridiculing or beating. Unless the minds of the younger ones are without fear, how can they hold their heads high?

Time for some real action by the Civil Society

Taba Ajum

ITANAGAR, June 16: Foundation for a better society is usually laid with active participation of civil society. Time and again it has been found that strong and active civil society can act as social watchdog, even to the extent of taking government to task if they don’t perform their duty properly.  If one sit-down and write about numerous historical movements carried out by civil societies involving general masses throughout the world, one would find that even most powerful rulers had to bow down in front of ordinary citizens because of such wave.

However in Arunachal Pradesh, civil society bodies are noticeably absent and those few present also does not have their own independent voice.  Taking advantage of this weakness, every now and then some new groups comes up with their own way of pressurizing government, claiming to be representative of masses. They come up with some issues and there will be series of bandh calls, dharnas etc. demanding fulfillment of their wishes. By the time ordinary citizens tries to understand what really is the matter, issues dies a natural death and groups vanishes in thin air, till they find another new issue to pressurize government.  And poor citizens like us keep on wondering why this group gives up the issue after bestowing ray of hope.

Most of the civil society groups of state are community based like Nyishi Elite Society, Galo Welfare Society, Adi-Baane Kebang, Singpho Development Society and so on.  These groups represent one particular community and so it could be wrong to expect them to care for entire state.  Except All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union (AAPSU) and few others, state does not have one particular civil society group representing voice of entire people of Arunachal.  There is complete disarray between different tribes and no sense of unity to stand together on issues bothering the whole state.  Recently when anti-dam protesters mostly comprising of women were beaten up at Ponging village by para-military forces, most of the civil society groups of state remained silent.  If similar thing had occurred in other state, only god or union home ministry could have saved those police forces and Jaypee group. But what a shame, no one, except ordinary people came out to condemn that incident.

Everybody knows that there is rampant corruption going on but none of the present civil society groups dares to take up the matter.  There are major issues like Dam and Chakma refugee, concerning people of state, but none of them takes interest in these issues.  There is this common justification given by each of them-‘issue is concern to that tribe or this tribe’. They don’t know that one day, these will issue will become headache for the entire state. Our state is going through a transitional period, there is need for us to develop strong civil society movement to tackle government on every issues pertaining to the interest of ordinary citizens.

Already present generation citizens are suffering because of mis-management of state by our elders. Though late, still there is time to make amends and build better future for Arunachalees. If we don’t make this state a better place to live, the coming generation of Arunachalee will curse us like way we do with our elders for making mess out of Arunachal.  Time for some real action by so called civil society groups of state!
