Govt and RGU to chalk out plan to enhance marketing

ITANAGAR, Nov 20: The Government of Arunachal Pradesh has been trying to find out the ways and means of enhancing the marketability of the different products of the State. Endowed with a vast natural resource base the state can produce a good number of products in high quantities. However, to date the production has been constrained by the lack of marketing outlets. Its outcome is the farmers’ not getting the remunerative prices.

To remove the marketing bottleneck, and to design the required intervention in various stages of production the Government of Arunachal requested Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU) Rono Hills, Itanagar to find out the marketing avenues of potential exportable of the State’s various products, especially those from small growers and artisans who could not reach out to international market due to lack of information and less production for export.

RGU has submitted the draft report. To discuss draft report a meeting took place at the office chamber of Commissioner, Trade and Commerce Makbul Pertin, today.

The meeting was attended by Director Tokong Pertin and the other officers of Directorate of Trade and Commerce and Prof. N. C. Roy and Prof. S. K. Nayak from the Department of Economics, RGU.

Prof. Roy made a presentation on the various potential exportable of the state.

Director, Trade and Commerce Tokong Pertin, suggested to give more thought on proper mechanization for marketing and

appropriate institutional and infrastructural reforms for the various entrepreneurs.

Both the Commissioner and the Director emphasized how to sell the surplus products especially in the neighbouring states so that small producers are benefited.

As the Study highlighted, small size of the farms and the small cottage-based industrial surplus are the main constraints to realizing the economies of scale which too often results in the wastage of surplus especially of fruits. It acts as the disincentive to the artisans/farmers to produce more.

It was further decided that a workshop would be convened by the Government to take the views of all stakeholders that has been scheduled for mid December.

A committee to oppose the dams


Dear Editor,

Through the columns of your esteemed paper I would like to draw the attention of the authorities concerned and the public of Arunachal Pradesh that an “Anti-Dam Committee of Lohit – Anjaw district” has been constituted under the chairmanship of Khuje Drai, to oppose the construction of Mega-dams on the Lohit River.

The committee is comprised of educated youths of the two districts, who strongly feel that the rights of indigenous people should not be sacrificed at the alter of national development.

Arunachal Pradesh is rich in bio-diversity with 83% of forest cover and we tribals are dependent on its rich bio-diversity since time immemorial. Apparently, we are going to lose much of our bio-diversity, if the power projects materialize. Considering the potential adverse impacts of the dams, viz. destruction of the natural environment through blasting, alteration of the natural topography and deforestation, displacement of people from the areas to be submerged, change in the downstream character of the water due to increased sedimentation and erosion, change in the downstream water quality due to concentration of heavy metals and minerals due to disposal of muck from the construction sites, increase in man-animal conflict, inflow of outside labourers resulting to demographic imbalance and likelihood of introduction of new diseases in the area and serious socio-cultural impacts on vulnerable indigenous communities, we vehemently oppose the Demwe hydro electrical project, which is being executed by Athena Demwe Power Private Limited.

It’s pertinent to cite that, the public hearing conducted on 11-08-2009 and 12-08-2009 at Parsuram Kund mela ground and Machima (Paya) respectively was a farce. The majority of the public attending the public hearing couldn’t comprehend the proceedings of the public hearing. Most of the speakers were induced to speak in favour of the project for their vested interest and they virtually hijacked the public hearing. Unfortunately, due to the inherent social conditions in our area such as, lack of literacy and simple nature of the tribals, people are easily lured by the prospect of money and jobs. Little attention is paid to long term environmental and ecological implication in the light of short term economic gain.

The Lohit River is of reverence for the Hindus as well as the indigenous Mishmi Community. Parsuram Kund is situated on the Lohit River, which is a pilgrimage destination, where every year several thousands of hindu pilgrims from other parts of India and Nepal visit the holy place to take holy bath in the Kund during Makar Sankranti (14th January). With the existence of the dams, there is likelihood that the sanctity of the holy place will get violated.

NIMKEY and TELLO are the two reverential sites located on the bank of Lohti River, Apparently these holy and heritage sites of the indigenous people will get submerged, if the power projects materialize and this would hurt the religious sentiments of the Mishmis.

It’s alarming to know that, despite the fact that our state is located in a highly seismic zone, the state government has invited the power developers to construct several mega-dams on the Lohit River within the distance of 80 Kms. one can’t imagine the extent of destruction it would unleash in the event of natural calamities like earthquake. It’s totally unwise to play with nature because one can’t predict the fury of the nature. We can’t rely upon the ‘Emergency Preparedness Plan’ which is incorporated in the EIA of the project. A recently conducted study also cites that large dams in India are large contributors of methane emissions, one of the gases responsible for global warning, which is a matter of serious concern today.

It’s relevant to mention that the renowned environmentalist, Mr. Sunder Lal Bahuguna, Padma Shree, the pioneer of the popular Chipko Movement, during his recent visit to our state had opined that mega-dams should not be built in Arunachal Pradesh.

Considering the adverse implications of the Power Projects and the irreversible damage it would inflict on the environment, we reiterate that we are against the Power Projects on the Lohit Valley. If the Demwe Lower H.E. Project is allowed to materialize, it will open the Pandora’s Box for the posterity.

Therefore we exhort the authorities concerned and the public to look into the matter and do the needful in the larger interest of our state and the indigenous people. In our Endeavour to protect the environment, we have resolved to approach any forum and we seek the support of the public in our Endeavour to save our environment.

In response to a letter that left a bad taste!



Dear editor,

This is in reference to the letter under the headlines “There is never a  right time……” which was in very bad taste at least for me.

I personally have nothing for  or against the rescheduling of APPSC prelim exam. But I want to ask the person, who is anyone to judge if people are serious or non serious. On what basis are these people to be classified? Well he is right that it takes day or two to reach any part of state but what about people who are appearing for the NET exam and their respective grade or other exams?  Aren’t they entitled to the exams of their own state? If this thing had  to be considered people other than the serious ones should not have been issued the forms in the first place, right ?

Discriminating on the basis of degree seriousness will be mockery  on the equality and the person who so ever had given a valuable suggestion that P.G students should concentrate on research and lecturership! I want to ask him/her who is anyone to suggest others what to do and what not to? Saying something like this through a daily is nothing but stupidity!  Because people who qualifies for P.G are mostly wise, firm and intelligent enough to decide for their career on their own!  

I would like to request to the editor to please try to avoid publishing letters of selfish and irrelevant nature in your daily which is widely read. It might have a bad impact on the masses opinion and interest.                     

Yours sincerely

Menga Sikom.

Dear editor,

I would like to convey this message to Obin Tailang, the writer of the letter under the headlines -“There is never a right time…..”  published in your esteemed daily on Nov 20.

 I myself is doing my P.G. and its hurts to know that people with such thoughts also exists.

My friend here seems to forget that we all have the right to choose our career and it is a very narrow minded thought that people doing P.G or Law are restricted as lecturers or researchers or lawyers.

Its not that we are asking for some time without any reason, being a student he should understand our problem. We are having many exams hours during this period and we are not demanding this exam to be held on this month of next year, we just want sometime to be completely and freshly ready for this "Mother of all exams in Arunachal Pradesh".

As for the bright heading "there is never a right time to do right thing", then my friend, we are just requesting to extend this "never a right time",.. to do the right thing.

So please have patience for the sake of all your other friends studying in Arunachal Pradesh and for all who are studying in different parts of the Country and leave the decision to the authorities!!!

N.Murtem (RGU),

On e-mail.




Visible development


Dear Editor,

I do appreciate the Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu for cancellation of earmark system of S K oil in the Capital Complex to particular retailer.  Now every fair shop and individual can get required quantity of S K  oil through the SK oil retail shops.  The step will help the customers to save money who used to by kerosene from open market in high prices.

Secondly, the personal initiative undertaken by local MLA Techi Kaso for improvement of law and order within the Capital Complex is yielding very good result.

The city administration is making every effort to provide solace to the Capital dwellers by checking movement of vehicles within the Capital Complex and imposing penalty for reckless driving, on underage drivers and to the drivers who are driving two wheelers without helmet.

Really the initiative taken by local MLA is praiseworthy.

In this context, I would like to offer my suggestions that the city administration should specify different horn system for two wheelers, three wheelers and four-six-wheeler vehicles and fix maximum speed limit within the Capital Complex as done in other metropolitan cities of the country which would go a long way in management and improvement of traffic movement here too.
