---- Editorial ----
The political discourse in the country is moving towards dangerous path. The way
things are unfolding in Goa and Manipur do not augur well for the Indian democratic
system. Congress emerged as the single largest party in both Goa and Manipur in the
recently concluded assembly election. But surprisingly Governor invited BJP to form
the Government. This is morally and ethically wrong.
Governors of both the state should have invited Congress which is the single largest
party to form the government which is the laid down norms. Also allegation of using
money power to buy MLAs has emerged. Congress accused BJP of indulging in horse trading
to buy MLAs in Manipur and Goa. These are serious allegation and need to be look
into. In Goa though verdict was fractured, the voter did sent out a message by ensuring
the defeat of incumbent BJP Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar. Therefore decision
to allow BJP to form govt is more baffling. Once upon a time BJP was known for its
strong morality. But it looks like power is getting into the head of its leaders.
Now BJP is behaving exactly how Congress uses to behave once. Perhaps time has come
for all the political parties to introspect. They should follow certain morality
while in power. Rampant abuse of power will only lead to destruction.

Grievances of other science graduate
In reference to " open letter to chief minister" I would like to throw some light
on grievances of other science graduates.
I don't understand how could a Banyan tree be the reason for selection in RFO. It
was sad reading the letter demeaning/undermining the effort of other science graduate.
We have also been studying day and night to acquire a degree and masters in science.
Yes we did study about plant, environment, forest etc. RFO asks for a capable officer
who could bring in innovative ideas/best effort rather than just planting and cutting
trees. If that is sole reason for selection than I think even the Gardener is eligible
for RFO post.
As you said 80% of our forest cover with forest that doesn't mean forestry graduates
alone are entitled to the post.
50% seats are reserved for forestry students and 50% for other science graduate!
Be happy you have at least 50%.
As you have mentioned we need a good officer who is actually capable of bestowing
the best service and duty and this can be done by every deserving candidate who can
And yes, even school student would know the scientific name of Banyan tree because
we are taught this during our schooling days.
I would request the concern authority to allow other science graduates to compete
without any reservation.
RWD or APPSC?
Through your local daily, I would like to ask Rural works department (RWD) whether
they are going to conduct the examination to recruit grade-B and grade-C that were
advertised 3weeks ago or hand it over to Arunachal Pradesh public service commission.
Chief minister Pema Khandu has already stated that all the departmental vacancies
are to be forwarded to APPSC for genuine recruitment. Now, we are in a quandary,
whether to fill the forms or wait till final decision is taken.
It may be worthless for some people but most of the job seeking candidates belongs
to poor background.
So it is a request to RWD to notify us if there is any probability of changes.
Through your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the attention of concerned authority
of Education department and DDSE Changlang regarding delay in declaring the result
of SSA Teachers.
The walk- in- interview was held on Feb 6-7 but till today there is no news about
the result. There is no reason to delay the result as there are less candidates than
total post advertised. Some of the district has already declared the result.
So I on behalf of appeared candidate request the DDSE Changlang to declare the result
as soon as possible.
Through your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the attention of incumbent authority
of the APPSC. Recently, it announced the much talked about exam of the commission,
Assistant Engineer of various departments. I would like to request the authority
concerned to please make it public, the marks obtained by all those made to the final
list and also the marks obtained by all those who could not qualify the written
exam. By doing so, probably the room for improvement can be analysed by the aspirant
for upcoming exams and also the ambiguity associated with the state PSC exam will
be cleared to some extent. For the case of privacy, the score card can also be given
to the aspirants on demand instead of just publicly posting the marks of all who
could not make it to the list.
It is also understood that there is a RTI provisions to claim the copy of evaluated
paper. But the procedure to obtain is cumbersome and its discouraging in its own
way. Also, it is suggested, to release the cutoff marks of all the exams like UPSC
or other state PSCs do.
I also request the Student and youth organisations of the state to ponder into such
problems of the students for over all development of the student community.
The aspirant who cannot make it to the list just fails to judge and analyse one's
potential without the marks obtained. The much needed reality check about the recruitment
system should be introduced to all the aspirants.
I am hoping a constructive improvement from the commission for benefit of all.
Age and Court job application
The District and Sessions Court, East Session Division, Tezu, Lohit District and
The District and Sessions Court, West Session Division, Yupia, Papumpare District
invited applications for various vacant posts under its jurisdiction through its
advertisement dated 18th february,2017 wherein the maximum age limit for APST/SC/ST/PWD
has been mentioned as 33 years.
In its previous recruitment for the same posts, maximum age mentioned was 38+5 years
for APST/SC/ST/PWD. Then, why did the concerned authorities deviated from its earlier
recruitment rules and reduced the maximum age limit to 33 years drastically without
any notification to this effect?
Because of this sudden change in age criteria, many candidates have been affected.
Even the government of Arunachal Pradesh, Department of Administrative Reforms through
its notification No.AR-28/13 dated 30th july,2014 revised the upper age limit to
35 years for APSTs for posts under the Government of Arunachal Pradesh.
Looking at the present state where job advertisements are very rare and at the same
time highly uncertain, a candidate finally ends up wasting many precious years of
his life waiting for job advertisement. And, even when an advertisement occur, the
delay in the recruitment process leads to wastage of many precious years of the students.
The 2013 APPSCCE recruitment process which finally finished in 2016 is a glaring
example which is a nightmare haunting us till today.
Therefore, through this, I would like to request the concerned authorities to kindly
look into the matter seriously and do the needful. Also, I earnestly appeal Chief
Minister Pema Khandu to kindly intervene and take appropriate action in this regard
for the benefit of the student community at large.
Increase age limit
This in response to the advertisement No D&SJ/Tezu-East/Estt-34/16 that was published
in Arunachal Times on 23rd Fe. 2017 and advertisement no-DC(WD)-89/2016/R.CELL dated
Yupia 18th Feb 2017 that was uploaded in concerned official website on 3rd March
2017 for the Sheristadar, peshkar, UDC etc under the District and Session court
East session Division Tezu and the District and session court West session division
Yupia papum pare district.
According to the advertisement maximum age limit for APST is 33 years.
But Govt. of Arunachal Pradesh has increased upper age limit upto 35 years for APST
(which include relaxation). Then again as per advertisement no: HC.XXXVII-87/2013/4257/R.Cell
dated 18th July 2013 published in same local daily on 19th July 2013 maximum
age for APST candidates was 48 for same posts.
Therefore, we appeal to concerned authority to kindly look into the matter and increase
the upper age limit for the APST as per latest norms. Otherwise many of APST aspirants
will be deprived of job opportunity.
