There should be no room for regret in future

Dear Editor,

The way our state govt. is gambling with corporate power giants at the cost of the lives of innocent indigenous people is not quite shocking as they are used to it. Given the truth our state is going through transition period, its care taker should be very cautious in shaping it learning from others leaving no room for ‘regret’ in future. The beautiful place of Arunachal Pradesh in the zenith of its natural state can be developed without defacing it or hurting the rights and sentiments of the indigenous people living in it since the time immemorial. There are numerous ways to achieve development through non-injurious and environmental friendly projects like tourism which is emerging global business. Why is govt. dying after mega hydro power projects which are no less nuclear weapon for self destruction?

We are sons of rivers, forests and mountains. These are our identity. Our unwritten history – past and present is associated with it. Why is govt. hell bent in submerging our state? Govt. at Delhi is happy to grant more and more clearance to the power giants. This very attitude reflects their step motherly treatment towards us. Central govt won’t be affected if we are stricken by the negative impacts of these monstrous mega dams. They are just there to secure their seats, earn money and see us suffer and die! It is clear from the appointment of Rakesh Nath as the expert appraisal committee (EAC) chairperson. The man who, till few weeks back was the president of the Indian National Committee of International Commission on Large Dam (INCOLD) which is fanatically pro large dam organization.

Even execution by NHPC which is regarded pretty experienced in Hydro Electric Power projects is opposed by the conscious citizens who are much concerned about the impacts of mega dams on our rich flora, fauna and humanity to be precise, the state govt. has decided to allot (actually allotted) 2000 MW Subansiri Upper project to KSK Energy Ventures Limited (KSKEVL) which has practically nil experience when it comes to big projects in power sector. How can responsible govt. resorts to such irresponsible act? Such callous disregard for the sentiments and rights of the indigenous people by the centre as well as the state govt. should be condemned at the length of worst possible language.

We have witnessed worst disastrous effect of mega dams around the world and at the same time we also have seen how careless these companies about the future safety and relief and rehabilitation packages are.

We do not deny that we‘re not being benefited and off course few of our people may become wealthy but lets not forget that the majority of us and those gaining out of the project will have to live with fear and distress. The twin towns of Upper Subansiri district, Daporijo, the district headquarter and Dumporijo and many other villages lie not only in the downstream but also in the basin of river Subansiri. We’re already under constant fear of future / unseen catastrophes and by damming Subansiri river it would be like implanting deadly bomb over our head. Let’s not take it easy for not experiencing ruthless jolt of late fifties. It can come any time as our area lies in earth quake prone zone.

River Subansiri is the source of livelihood for considerable people of Upper Subansiri district in particular. It is the only source of sand, gravel and boulders of high quality for building of many infrastructures like house, road, etc. All of us know how river bring down these minerals. Once the dam comes up these sources will be finished for once and all. This is just a little instance. There’s much more disastrous effect of such mega dams.

The influx of thousands of workers for the construction of dam is also a major concern. There is fear of spreading of deadly diseases and displacement of our tribal population is quite apparent in such circumstances. Our state is an ecologically and sociologically fragile, seismically active and culturally sensitive. Govt. should think and act judiciously before implementing any project which is not understood and accepted by our indigenous people.

Earning revenue for the state is undeniably an important objective of the govt., but, revenue at the cost of the lives of our people is definitely the people last policy. We are not against Micro Hydro Power projects that can be taken up by the state which has no risk or meager risk and generates power and thereby enhance revenue too.

Thanks to the Print Medias of our state for boldness and unbiased approach in bringing out the truth before its people. Brothers it’s about the time to wake up from deep slumber and fight for our rights before it’s too late.

“We are strong, diverse and united and our cause is just, we have stopped destructive dams and have forced dam builders to respect our rights. We have stopped dams in the past, and we’ll stop more in future”. – Declaration from the “First International Meeting of People Affected by Dams’ in Curitiba, Brazil on March 14, 1997.

Fake ILPs should be a cause of concern

Dear Editor,

The recent news of forged inner-line permits issued (ILP) from Bangalmara under Latuk Circle of North Lakhmpur District in Assam is cause of serious concerns for State Government. With some North Eastern States diseased with ultras and underground elements, our state would be safe haven for such bad elements if proper strategy is not applied on right time. With the porous boundaries of the state, strictest measures should be formulated by the state government to check the un-desired population influx from outside. Many Bangladeshis from Laluk/Bangalmara areas are mushrooming in the Capital Complex in search of small job and multiplying their population fast.

Particularly the riverside in Chandrangar and Naharlagun and interior areas of capital has been target of their settlement making the rivers polluted and surroundings unhygienic. The unchecked penetration of these of Bangladeshis may be serious social issue in the years to come if we let this system continue.

Their ILP should be issued on Work Permit basis for a fixed period framed by the Contractor /Owner of works department on the nature & duration required for the work and responsibility should be totally on the contractor/owners to make those workers out of the check gate once the work is completed. In no case renewal of their ILP should be allowed. Remember that we failed "Chakmas & Hajongs" refuges issue.

May god bless us all Arunachalees

Dear Editor,

The recent appointment of several advisers to Chief Minister is totally an unwise decision. Now we are told that there are almost eight advisers. My fellow citizens, why are we silent on such an important matter of public interest?  Appointment of any person to any post is prerogative of the government but it should be for interest of the state and its people. People or person who is competent and expert in any given subject or field should have been chosen instead of choosing only the members from a particular political party. It is up to literate Arunachalees with sense of duty towards state and Nation to raise their voices.

The environmental problem and global warming is one very serious subject discussed all over world. But in our state it is yet to be taken up by general mass and high class society. Trees planted by the forest department during the opening of state capital are felled unlawfully by greedy land encroachers but concern department is scared to raise a voice and District Administration is helpless because of no written complaint received.

Today poor and downtrodden people do not have a proper land to build their huts but strong and mighty encroach any land even inside Niti Vihar Minister’s Colony.   What we need is those who really love Arunachal and the cause of its people. Not the power or fame seekers. Instead of promoting our own particular tribe we must promote and pray for Arunachalees. One Arunachal feeling will surely help our people more than community or tribe based.

May God Bless every Arunachalee!


Very concerned citizen


‘Arunachalee’ sounds so rustic and crude

Dear Editor,

Nowadays many people write and use the word 'Arunachalee' for the people of Arunachal Pradesh. The term sounds offensive and derogatory for the unique tribal communities. Strangely, some people of Arunachal Pradesh are doing so.

Lets not forget that prior to 1971, there was nothing by the name of 'Arunachal'. Meghalaya people do not use the term 'Meghalayee' for themselves. No Khasi or Garo writer has ever used such a word.

I would like to request the people and media of Arunachal Pradesh not to use the word 'Arunachalee' which sounds so rustic and crude. We are better known by our respective unique nomenclature as Adi, Nyishi, Nocte, Wanchoo, Monpa!!!


Ropi Jamoh,




Don’t forget the Nepalese

Dear Editor,

This in response to "Marriage Convenience" by Neil Lyndoh. Mr. Lyndoh might have forgotten the Gorkha Regiment who fought for India during the 1962 China-Indo war.

The whole North East might have been with China, had the Nepalese not given their bloods. Regarding marriage, he must remember that marriages are made in heaven and it is not in our hands to decide who our daughter will marry.

On the other hand, he should appreciate inter caste marriage, as it encourage integrity and harmony amongst the citizen.

If Nepalese are illegal migrants than what about Sikkim?
