Govt should reach out to opposition
The second part of the budget session of Parliament began on Thursday after a month-long
recess. The session will continue till the 12th of next month. During the session,
from the passage of the Finance Bill, 2017, the government is keen to pass the much-awaited
legislations related to the Goods and Services Tax (GST). The passing of legislations
related to the GST is very important as government of India is targeting to implement
GST from July 1 onwards. Modi government is betting big on GST to speed up the Indian
Stake is so high that Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself has called for a breakthrough
regarding the implementation of the GST. For GST and other important bills to pass,
it is important that parliament session runs without any trouble. However, considering
the past experience, government will definitely be on tenterhooks. The first part
of the budget session, which started on 31st of January, concluded on the 9th of
last month following the presentation of the Union Budget and passage of motion of
thanks to President's address to the joint sitting of both the Houses. The session
was almost a wash out as opposition parties did not allowed the house to run by raising
various issues. The hostility between ruling and opposition parties has increased
in the last two year. The onus is on ruling party to try reach out to the opposition
and engage them in dialogue so that both the houses of parliament run without trouble.

Let Pema work
Through your esteemed daily, I would like to request all concern to kindly maintain
a peaceful atmosphere so that the state of Arunachal Pradesh under the leadership
of Pema Khandu could bring more and more development for the state. It is not fair
to comment about his performance in such a short duration. One must get enough and
ample time to perform to show once mettle.
I do believe that Chief Minister will work more sincerely and dedicatedly in the
days to come to develop our state and take it to new heights.
I once again appeal the citizens of the state to support our present Chief Minister
so that he may take the state forward. We are fed up wtih demands for his resignation.
Establish CBSE office
Through your esteemed newspaper, I would like to draw the attention of the concerns
authority regarding the establishment of regional CBSE office in Itanagar.
I would like to narrate about my experience while I was applying for my class tenth
pass certificate which I had lost.
It is really difficult to go all the way to Guwahati to apply for the lost documents,
especially for those people who belongs to the poor family with financial problems
and lack of knowledge about the location. Even after reaching Guwahati, we cannot
finish our work in one day. We need to stay there for a week just because of delay
I request the govt of Arunachal Pradesh and student organizations to work towards
establishment of regional CBSE office in Itanagar.
Lacking facilities in school
GHSS, Daring was established way back in 1947 as primary school just after the Indian
independence. It is the place where personalities like Moje Riba and Moji Riba;
the freedom fighter and Tamrapatra awardee were born and brought up. It is place
were Tomo Riba, the great philanthropist, former chief minister of state was brought
But it very sad to see that Daring GHSS which was upgraded to Higher Secondary in
2004, is in worse condition.
Till date, it has not yet been given full pledge HSS status which is a matter of
great concern for people of one of the oldest circles. The school is in a dilapidated
condition and is on the verge of collapse.
There is a acute shortage of teachers in HS level as no subject teachers has been
posted in this school. It is surprising to see that there is no toilet for both boys
and girls students in this school till today. The attention by the concern department,
stake holders, PRI's is highly required for this lone GHSS of Daring circle.
Give 100 to forestry graduates
Through the esteemed columns of your prestigious newspaper,I would like to draw the
kind attention towards the recent advertisement of RFO posts and 50% reservation
for the forestry students.
Forestry students have been struggling and demanding for reservation in state forest
service since 2001 and fortunately state govt has approved our demand and has given
us 50% reservation.
Now my questions to prestigious APPSC board and non-forestry students is that are
there any guidelines in any others competitive exams likes UPSC,UGC in our country
where it is specified that reservation category students can’t compete for unreserved
or open seats?
So, we appeal to higher authorities and non-forestry students not to confine and
stick to old norms and guidelines.
There is already 50% unreserved seats for RFO posts in which non-forestry students
can compete with forestry students. I hope that our state govt will understand and
ponder about giving 100% reservation in state forest service to forestry graduates.
