Review all MOUs/MOAs
The report about Forest Advisory Committee under the Ministry of Environment, Forests
& Climate Change deferring the forest clearance to the 3,097 MW Etalin Hydropower
Project in Arunachal Pradesh has not come as surprise. Like Etalin, the majority
of hydropower projects on offing in the state are stuck in various stages. Barring
few like Kameng and Pare, most of the projects have simply failed to even start.
This thoroughly exposes the lackadaisical attitude of state government.
Even though they constantly harp about tapping the hydro-potential, the government
is yet to take any concrete step to materialize it. In case of Etalin project it
is reported that though project involves displacement of 95 families, the State Government
has not even prepared the Rehabilitation Plan till date. This exposes the poor preparedness
of state government. The Etalin project is being jointly executed by Jindal Power
Limited and Hydro Power Development Corporation of Arunachal Pradesh Limited. The
government of Arunachal is expected to earn massive revenue once it starts functioning.
The time has come for government to completely review all MOUs/MOAs signed with various
developers. Project should be taken up only in those areas where local people are
willing to extend support. Forceful implementation of project should be avoided at
any cost. Also state govt should terminate agreement with those developers who are
not serious about implementing the project.

Through your esteem daily, I want to ask National Health Mission department when
they are going to declare the result of walk in interview conducted on 14 of February
for various post like DAHPM, Computer Operator etc. It’s already been more than one
month and I believe it’s enough Time for declaring the result of simple walk in interview.
I also understand that departments have their own busy schedules but at the same
time I will really appreciate the department if they manage some time for declaring
the result, as many hopes sometimes depends on it.
At the same time I also like to request concern Ministers and secretaries for bringing
Fake sports certificates and recruitment
Through your esteemed daily, I would like to appeal Govt. of Arunachal Pradesh to
ban fake certificates for recruitment of Arunachal Pradesh Police constables under
Sport quota Recruitment for Tirap, Longding and Changlang. I have noticed that maximum
candidates are appearing with fake certificates. Some sport associations are issuing
fake certificates charging high amount which poor persons can’t afford. Charging
high amount for fake certificates is not fair.
There are lots of sports persons in Arunachal Pradesh, they have hundred percent
right to get the job instead of other candidate coming with fake certificate. Sports
men/women do very hard work to get their fair certificate so how can other non-sport
men/women get the jobs instead of them? Sports quotas should be only for sports persons
not for non-sports persons.
I would like to request authority to properly check the details of every single candidate.
And also I strongly appeal to high authority to immediately ban such a fake certificates
issued from various sports associations in Arunachal Pradesh.

Follow the NCTE norms
Through your esteemed daily news paper, I would like to suggest the Education Department
to follow the NCTE norms in recruitment of elementary teachers because the teachers
are one of the most important agent to throw light on society. Eligible candidate
can change the present situation of school. According to NCTE norms, the following
must be considered while verifying document of a candidate:
1. To become a PRT: Class XII passed with 50% Marks, Diploma in elementary education
or 4 Years bachelor of education or diploma in special education and Passed TET in
One Year B.Ed is not eligible for the post, having Diploma but passed TET Paper-II
are not eligible for the post.
2. To become a Upper Primary Teacher: Graduation with 50% Marks having one year B.Ed,
passed Paper –II Or Graduation , Diploma in Elementary Education and Passed TET Paper:
Passed Paper -I in TET are not eligible for the post.
50% Marks Graduation is not required for the candidate having two year diploma in
If the concerned department do not follow the NCTE norms what is the value of conducting
APTET or asking for TET.
Hope the concern department would understand the matter and follow strictly on NCTE
norms while conducting teacher recruitment process.
Non availability of IPO
Through this esteemed daily, I would like to bring the attention of concern authority
of District And Session courts of Tezu and Yupia towards the non-availability of
IPO for applying various posts under the Jurisdiction of these two courts.
There is acute shortage of IPO in posts offices. When I reached Naharlagun post office
to purchase IPO, the concerned official told me that there is shortage of IPO in
the entire state. I enquired at the Head post office, Itanagar who also said that
there is lack of IPO.
For applying various posts under these two establishments, only IPO has been asked
for so I appeal to the concerned authority to kindly extend the last of receiving
applications till the availability of IPO .
I would like to request those Bank drafts are accepted as application fee. We hope
that concerned authority would understand the nature of this technical problem and
will do the needful.
