RUKSIN, May 4: Ruksin Area Youth Front (RAYF) and general people of Ruksin have demanded
the authority to evict the illegal occupants of Govt land in Ruksin township without
Expressing concern over encroachment of government notified land in Ruksin township,
the RAYF gave Ruksin SDO (civil) one month to vacate the Govt notified land. The
Forum also sought the intervention of East Siang deputy commissioner to evict illegal
structures constructed at encroached land and threatened to launch democratic movement
in support of its demand.
The RAYF claimed that despite repeated pleas, the SDO is keeping mum over the issue
and thereby playing an irresponsible role. The Ruksin SDO (C) Yemlin Tayeng earlier
denied any illegal occupation of government land in the township. But the illegal
occupation was ascertained after the matter was taken up with district Land Settlement
and Revenue department.
It is said that a large portion of the government notified land at Ruksin township
are under illegal occupation of some non-bonafide individuals, who have been erecting
temporary and permanent structures on the encroached land.

Berung Pig Breeding Farm cries for Govt’s attention
PASIGHAT, May 4: Despite being endowed with enormous scopes of agriculture allied
activities like animal farming, the “District Pig Breeding Farm” set up at Berung
near Pasighat is crying for government’s attention to perform to its fullest potential.
Located at 7 km south of Pasighat town, the piggery farm was established in 1992
with a view to conserve the local pig species as well as to produce quality piglets
for supplying among rearers in a very nominal rate. Subsequently, a centrally sponsored
project was reportedly introduced in the farm in 2006. But the farm is still running
without proper infrastructure and other required facilities. Moreover, inadequate
feeding and poor nutritional management is reportedly affecting normal growth of
the reared animals.
The only piggery farm running under the Directorate of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary
aims to produce local pig breeds known as “Doom Pig”. It is observed that the Doom
pigs that reared by the common villagers since time immemorial fell into endangered
list and its conservation is need of hour.
The Government of India launched a project in 2006 to save Doom Pig species from
being extinct. Doom Pig, though it is not commercially viable as compared to other
cross-breed varieties, it is necessary to conserve the local species for production
of cross- breed and research activates like Genetic Engineering. The Pig Breeding
Farm has a ‘Breeding Unit’ and ‘Growers Shed’. The breeding unit is equipped with
20 breeding chambers, where the Doom Boars and the mother pigs are kept in separable
condition. Besides 15 breeding mothers there are some Large White Yorksire in the
farm, which are capable to produce about 700 piglets worth Rs 3 Lakh in a year.
There is a pathetic and unsanitary look in the pig breeding farm. The attendant of
the farm informed that locally available foodstuff are being fed to the animals.
No boiler shed has been developed in the farm in order to feed boiled or sterilized
food to the pigs. The attendant also rued the lack of water supply as a major problem
in processing animal feed.
The Senior Veterinary Officer of Pasighat Dr. N Taloh, who is looking after the breeding
farm, has pointed towards paucity of fund as cause of the pitiable condition of the
farm. He informed that the state government grants about Rs 2 lakh in a year, which
is inadequate to maintain the farm and farming activities. The limited fund granted
by the government can not meet the cost of procurement of certified food and other
On the other hand, the Veterinary Training Institute, set up at Pasighat is also
hit hard by power supply problem. A lot of costly machineries supplied to institute
are reportedly lying unused as the state government is not funding for smooth functioning
of the institute.
Federation demands cancellation of Naying public hearing
ITANAGAR, May 4: Siang Bachao Federation (SBF) demanded the Arunachal Pradesh State
Pollution Control Board (SPCB) to immediately cancel the proposed public hearing
for Naying Hydro Power Project to be held at Naying under Tato circle in West Siang
district on May 11.
In a letter to the SPCB chairman the Federation said that forceful conduct of public
hearing may lead to law and order situation.
The MoU or MoA for the project was signed by the previous government without the
taking the local people into the confidence, the Federation said. Moreover, it
said, the Land Acquisition Act of 1894 has not been followed properly and the Tribal
Forest Right Act for local populace has been totally neglected while signing MoU
for the project. Most of the land of Siang valley are under submergence area and
green belt restricted zone, the Federation claimed.
“We the people of downstream area likely to be affected by the project will not
allow any public hearing proposed by concerned authorities as well as the Hydro
Power developer until and unless state Govt and power developer redress the grievances
of people,” the Federation said.
It further said that prior inform consent (PIC) seems to have been overlooked in
the proposed Naying Hydro Power Project and the administration did not enlighten
the majority of the local people about the EIA, EMP, RRP etc. of the Project.The
people are not aware of the actual position of the project, it said.
The Federation said Aalo township also falls under submergence zone but it is not
reflected in the cadastral survey as the authorities think Aalo is a non-affected
AAPSU expels its 2 executives, organizations condemn attack
ITANAGAR, May 4: All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) has expelled its co-convenor
Pebo Gyadi and his brother Lezen Gyadi, (Asst general secretary of Dera Natung Government
College) from the central executive members as well as primary membership of the
union for a period of 10 years for their involvement in the attack on Union’s general
secretary Tujum Poyom.
The decision was taken in an emergency meeting of the Union here today. They are
further debarred from taking part in any student union activities henceforth.
Taking strong exception to the attack on its general secretary, AAPSU said that the
incident involving central executive members of the union has brought big shame
to the apex students body of the state. It termed the assault on its general secretary
as attack on the “institute of AAPSU.”
“At a time when the AAPSU has been questioning the state government on the law and
order problem of the state more particularly in the capital complex, the shameful
incident has portrayed the union in poor light before the common masses,” AAPSU regretted.
The union further appealed one and all to desist from taking the issue in individual
or communal line as there are reports pouring in that some people through various
social networking sites and in the form of sms in mobiles are hell bent trying to
give it another colour. The union is alive to the situation and is doing whatever
is possible to punish the culprit.
All Nyishi Students’ Union (ANSU) strongly condemned the attack on Poyom.
Violence is not at all a solution to any problem. Rather it worsens any situation,
ANSU said and urged the youths to desist from taking the law into their own hands.
The Union said that any difference could be solved through dialogue in peaceful manner.
ANSU appealed to punish the culprits as per law. It also appealed public to discourage
wrongdoer even if they belongs his/her family and relatives.
Meanwhile, ANSU urged the State Government to bring out some good mechanism to control
law and order problem in state capital.
“Only peace can bring development and prosperity to the state and to bring peace
in state capital, punishment of the guilty as per the magnitude of the crime is a
must,” ANSU added.
Meanwhile, West Siang District Students’ Union (WSDSU) and Galo Students Union (GSU)
expressed serious concern over deteriorating law and order situation in the state
capital saying that the attack on Poyom and his wife has simply reflected the total
lawlessness in the capital region.
“We are deeply hurt by the incident which clearly shows that common publics are not
at all secured in Capital Complex despite the government’s tall claim of ensuring
peace in the state,” both WSDSU and GSU said in a memorandum to chief minister today.
“Taking strong note on attack on Poyom, we request your govt. to give exemplary punishment
to the perpetrators of the crime, who dared to take law in their hands,” the memorandum
said. It alleged that increasing rates of crimes are only due to political backup
“Criminals are moving freely. They do whatever they want and go unpunished. This
is a serious threat to your govt,” it said.
“We believe that under your leadership law shall prevail and guilty would be punished.
This is the only way to restore our faith in govt,” it added.
“We’re also waiting for govt.’s response on Nirjuli fire accident in which Tamar
Yoka lost his wife and two children. We demand stringent action by the administration
or else we’ll be forced to launch non co-operation movement against the govt,” it
The All Upper Subansiri District Student’s Union (AUSDSU) and All Arunachal Pradesh
Anti Corruption Activist Association (AAPACAA) have also vehemently condemned the
attack on Poyom and demanded exemplary punishment for culprits as per law.
While appealing to the civil society not to be involved in such matter to protect
the culprits, AUSDSU urged the student community of the state to raise voice against
the barbaric act which deserves condemnation from all quarters.
AAPACAA blamed the failure of police in arresting and punishing the offenders of
law for the increasing law and order problem in the state capital. It demanded the
state govt as well as police department to solve various cases which are yet to be
AAPACAA appealed to all citizens to support the AAPSU GS to get justice and pray
for his early recovery.
Poyom has been referred to Guwahati for further treatment, it informed.
The Arunachal Law Students Union (ALSU) also vehemently condemned the attack on Poyom
and demanded the authority to book the culprit(s) under appropriate section of the

A latest report by Friends of the Earth, an international watchdog says that anywhere
from 80 to 227 million hectares of rural, often agrarian land, typically in poorer
countries have been taken over by private and corporate interests in recent years.
Programmes and policies pushed by the World Bank, the organisation suggests, have
been both directly and indirectly responsible for this trend, with examples reportedly
coming from more than 60 countries.
Some of these are countries which struggle to feed their own populations but which
have enough fertile land to attract foreign investors, the report states. Such figures
are on the rise, driven by increased human demand for vegetable oils and the evolving
global market for biofuels.
These developments have been further exacerbated by certain international efforts
to combat global climate change, such as the U.N.-sponsored Reducing Emissions from
Deforestation and Forest Degradation programme.
Decades of World Bank policies have created the basis for what is happening today,
observers feel. Most of the critics opined against Bank-led initiative known as the
Principles for Responsible Agricultural Investment that Respects Rights, Livelihoods
and Resources (commonly referred to as RAI), which came into existence in January
RAI may seek transparency from land deals, but even if done transparently, the transfer
of large tracts of land to investors is still going to deprive smallholder farmers
and local communities from crucial, life-sustaining resources for generations to
come, observers say.
Appeal to RGU VC
The nuisance experienced during the recruitment of the various posts conducted in
the recent months in RGU Campus which is still being afresh in mind that another
haphazard story cropped up in the campus in the interview for teachers commenced
from the last week of April and is to continue till May last.
What is surprising is that against one sanctioned post, 10 candidates, according
to their merit, are being called for interview in each discipline for the post of
Fine, no problem in it but the question here arises is 20 candidates have been called
for the post of Assistant Professor in the department of Zoology, whereas it was
only 10 candidates for other departments. This was just to accommodate one of the
candidates for the Zoology Department who happens to be a family member of an Assistant
Professor who is from the Department of Botany. Who is also the 19th candidate in
the merit list (Zoology).
My humble submission to V.C. Sir is that please see to it that there is fairness
in selection of candidates and give the same opportunity to candidates for all the
departments and call for 20 candidates per post instead of 10 candidates.
In today’s modern world in such competitive age, every candidate is aspiring and
deserving, such injustice in the system can provoke innocent and diligent minds.
I appeal to you that these forms of corruption and nepotism have to be axed as soon
as possible. We all look forward to a fair and competent selection process under
your benevolent guidance.
Please keep the university above all these petty politics, you will have to assert
yourself and stand for the right, let there be equality. No individual is above the
rest however mighty or powerful he/she might be.
For the harsh facts of the matter are that we stand on this frontier at a turning
point in history, we must prove all over again whether this nation or any nation
so-conceived can long endure – whether our society with its freedom of choice, its
breadth of opportunity, its range of alternatives - can compete with the advance
of the other states.
As we face the coming challenges, we too shall wait upon the lord, and ask that we
renew our strength. Then shall we be equal to the test. Then we shall not be weary
and then we shall prevail.
Allegations completely baseless
This is in reference to the letter published in your daily (April 27) wherein a person
from Puchigeko has raised questions about development activities saying Raga MLA
did never visit Puchigeko circle for a long time.
We welcome the suggestions and also feel it necessary to clarify the query made in
Although the allegations made by the person is false, we would like to bring it to
the knowledge of everyone that in his tenure as the MLA of Raga Assembly, Nido Pavitra
has brought multi-crore project-schemes in the constituency.
One of the biggest achievements so far is the Tamen-Dollungmukh road which was the
dream project for the entire Raga constituency since 1972. He had it done by sanctioning
Rs. 146 crore and now the work is in progress with completion of fifty percent of
it. This project is now the life line for the people of Upper Subansiri and Lower
Subansiri district as this road will connect these 2 districts to Itanagar via North
Lakhimpur. Like-wise long felt dream projects of Jigi Mite road, Baja road, Yatap
road and Ayi-Boa road under CRF road have been achieved during his tenure. And also
upgradation of Govt.Secondary School Muri-Mugli to Higher Secondary School, creation
of sub-divisional PWD office at Dollungmukh, massive infrastructure improvement of
inspection Bungalow, tourism lodge etc and many Hariyali, IMPW, MIP, MIC, Flood control,
poultry, Agri-Horti and Health and Education sector related programmes were taken
up in the constituency. Many poverty elevation programmes were also taken up.
And in recent past the MLA had conducted extensive tour in entire constituency. From
December' 2011 to April' 2012, the MLA had tirelessly conducted developmental meetings
in various villages of Puchigeko and Daporijo Circles on various dates at Niji, Nguri,
Dakpe, Muri-Mugli, Hankar, Pobo Yitor, Baja, Laa, Puchigeko and looked into public
grievances and in addition to above, the MLA also conducted co-ordination meeting
with CO, Puchigeko. The MLA accepted various public invitations to attend various
festivals at Dakpe, Taliha and Baja village.
Experiencing such number of developments and witnessing his dynamic leadership, the
public have applauded his work and showered him with praises and showed confidence
in his leadership.
Thus the allegations leveled against MLA Nido Pavitra are completely baseless, in
fact the allegations highlight that the person is not aware of the social and political
development of the area. Such an amount of work done by the MLA can not be ignored

Demand for APPSC exam centre at Roing
Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) is to be appreciated for its
attempt to facilitate the aspirants to appear state civil service prelims in their
The initiative of the APPSC indeed has made even an average student possible to prepare
himself for the prestigious examination at his home place cutting down his expenditure.
But annoyingly, the students of Lower Dibang Valley and Dibang Valley who appear
for the prelim exam have to incur extra money for to and fro and accommodation at
Tezu. It is a headache especially for those who stay at state capital doing their
preparation, wasting his valuable 2-3 days just for reaching Tezu. Adding to the
problem if there happens to be some bandh call in Assam, as experienced in past,
we students suffer a lot. The mental agony we go through is severe. Secondly, it
is the accommodation problem at Tezu which is the present center of exam. Tezu is
short of proper accommodation facilities such as hotels, rest houses and IBs etc.
It is definite that we students have to reach Tezu 3-4 days ahead of the exam day.
To be noted that every student is not expected to have relatives at Tezu. Due to
lack of proper accommodation students are forced to share rooms with their mates.
It is worth mentioning here that at least 300 students appear prelim examination
from the above mentioned two districts.
Therefore, taking in note the problems faced by the students during exam time, I
would like to request, on behalf of whole student community of the two districts,
to the APPSC to allot prelim examination center at Roing, headquarter of Lower Dibang
Valley for coming examinations.

of the state in general.

What a pleasant surprise!
In those days the Upper Subansiri district Headquarter Daporijo was described as
backward area, but the scenario of Daporijo has changed in recent days with improvement
of drainage system and better road communication.
Since my childhood, I had been observing the pathetic condition of the roads, particularly,
drainage system along the road due to improper construction or lack of proper maintenance.
Many citizens of Daporijo had appealed to the authorities concerned to improve drainage
system and condition of township. Finally, they got the positive response during
recent visit of Chief Minister Nabam Tuki to Daporijo and some other areas.
After his visit, a new chapter of development begins as the renovation of pathetic
road condition and maintenance of drainage system has been undertaken.
Credit goes to CM Nabam Tuki. I personally appreciate Tuki for his new initiative
in development front.
