Sensitive APPBn beat out post running without facility
RUKSIN, Nov 13: The beat out post (BOP) of Arunachal Pradesh Police Battalion (APPBn)
set up at Debing on Assam-Arunachal border, around 10 km from here has been running
with myriad of problems, causing great deal of dissatisfaction among the cops and
local people including the PRI members.
Lack of required number of police personnel at the BOP and non-existence of communication
facility raises question about the safety of not only the people but of the cops
The outpost set up in 1981 is running without minimum requirement like wireless phone
and protective bunker around the camp. To top it all, there is no water supply and
electricity since its establishment.
Due to lack of wireless phone, sending of urgent message to the concerned police
station is a hard task to be accomplished.
Four policemen including the Incharge and three other constables are dwelling in
a worn-out kachcha house (see picture).
The Debing area falls under Ruksin sub division in East Saing district. Located at
the vulnerable area bordering Rajakhna Panchayat of Assam, the local people are witness
to number of clashes between the dwellers of both sides Assam and Arunachal.
The PRI members led by Kamin Apum (ASM of Debing-I) had moved the East Siang Superintendent
of Police during July 2009, demanded his initiative for providing necessary infrastructure
and facilities to the BOP.
Alleging the inaction of their elected leaders, Yom Yomso, the head Gaon Burah of
Debing said that due to indifferent attitude of the elected leaders, problems being
faced by the people of the village have not been solved. Talking to this correspondent,
In Charge of the BOP Sarat Bori expressed his anguish over the pathetic condition
of the camp and urged the authority to look into the problems.
The problem being faced by the BOP has already been made known to the higher ups
of the department.

ALSU conducts 2nd phase of survey at Naharlagun & Nirjuli
ITANAGAR, Nov 13: In continuation of their movement against the menace of ‘Illegal
land encroachment’ in Capital Complex, the Arunachal Law Students Union (ALSU) today
completed its second phase of survey in Naharlagun and Nirjuli town. The cumulative
assessment of the survey has revealed some startling facts and figures, which are
beyond the expectations and imagination of team ALSU.
The menace of illegal encroachment of government land has gripped the entire denizens
of capital complex. As witnessed in the first phase of the survey of around Itanagar
area, the land encroachment menace in Naharlagun and Nirjuli was no different. The
unchecked and rampant hazard has reached an epic proportion.
“ In a bid to occupy government land illegally, these erring citizens have completely
demolished standing govt. quarters and buildings,” ALSU said in a release. “It was
revealed during the survey that 80% allotees are govt employees and remaining 20%
are people from other walks of life. ‘D’ Sector which used to house the leaders,
bureaucrats and technocrats of the by gone era and once considered the posh locality
in Naharlagun has completely transformed into a concrete jungle. The neglected Polo
Park, of Naharlagun, is shrinking day by day because of rampant earth cutting by
land encroachers,” the release said and demanded the administration to initiate strong
measures immediately to control and prevent further destruction and encroachment
of this historic and important landmark.
Team ALSU led by its Secretary General Romik Jagu and other executive members, has
prepared a dossier of documents, consisting of video, photograph and other documentary
evidences, which will be submitted along with a memorandum, to the Governor, the
Chief Minister, Chief Secretary, Minister of Land Management & Housing etc.
The ALSU further appealed to all people of Capital Complex to be proactive and partake
in erasing this menace. “As responsible citizens of the state, it is the collective
duty of the common public and Govt. employees to put an end to this predicament,
and preserve the historical landmarks and encourage the planned expansion of Capital
Complex for the next generation,” ALSU added.

Seminar on liquid crystals
ITANAGAR: The Department of Physics, North Eastern Regional Institute of Science

(NCLC) during November 15-17.
Eminent scientists from USA, Germany and different parts of the country would participate
in this seminar.
A study by the HAQ-Centre for Child Rights, a composite index that looked into all
aspects of child wellbeing in all sectors and indicators for realisation of child
rights as a whole has come up with surprising findings.
It reveals that the economic growth of a state does not ensure rights of children.
As in most social sector indicators, Kerala tops the national child rights index,
followed by Karnataka. Arunachal Pradesh is the worst performer in protecting the
rights of children. One point that stands out in the indexing, the first of its kind
in the country is that economic growth does not necessarily improve the wellbeing
of children. Jharkhand is the only State whose economic status matches its child
rights rank both standing at 17.
Kerala, which ranks first in the national child rights, stands ninth in its Gross
Domestic Product (GDP) status, whereas Maharashtra, which ranks first in the GDP,
is standing third in child rights. Maharashtra does badly in sex ratio and child
marriage, which points to the lack of attention to children. Arunachal Pradesh has
performed fairly well in sex ratio, child marriage and early childhood care.
The ranking has a regional pattern: four of the five best performing States Kerala,
Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Andhra Pradesh are from the southern region. On the other
hand, all the worst performing States are in the Northeast: Sikkim, Meghalaya, Manipur,
Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh. In fact, of the five States falling in the not-so-well
performing States category, Tripura, Assam and Mizoram are from the Northeast. They
are performing badly in almost all indicators.
A significant proportion of the population of the worst performing States, which
are performing badly in education, are tribals: Jharkhand and Arunachal Pradesh are
tribal-dominated, with indigenous groups constituting 26.3 per cent and 64.2 per
cent of the population. This is also true of health, wherein the five worst performing
State are Assam, Jharkhand, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh. With exception
of UP, most states have huge tribal populations. These findings need to be taken
into consideration by policy makers. A good economy does not necessarily translate
into good social index.
Give us more time
I would like to request the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission to postpone
the date of Mains exam. Although it is known to us that the APPSC is capable of conducting
the civil service exam in the shortest time frame. Last year the APPSC broke the
record of all the State public service commission in the country in conducting civil
service exam in the shortest time frame. But here, the question is not about conducting
the exam, that too, of civil service stature in the shortest possible period. The
question is about the vastness of syllabus and the time that we have for preparation.
For the Mains exam, the UPSC also provides a period of four months. And APPSC syllabus
is same as that of the UPSC, then why this disparity? As the date earlier declared
by the APPSC is a tentative, it can be extended, if necessary. The demand for postponement
of exam by various other candidate is genuine.
Hence, I request the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission to think over the
matter and take a genuine decision for all the aspiring candidate.

Increase the incentives for IAS aspirants
I would like to pray the state govt. to increase the incentive for IAS aspirants
of the state. The state govt provides a sum of Rs.30000 for those students who clear
UPSC prelims & Rs.50000 thousands for clearing mains which is a very meagre amount
in comparison to amount spent by the students in the course of their IAS preparation.
Our students have to stay outside our state like Delhi in order to avail good study
materials, coaching and guidance as the same are not available in the state. And
the fees they spend in coaching institutes ranges from minimum Rs 1 to 2 lakhs. Moreover
single room in Delhi cost Rs.5000 a month. Moreover the incentives provided by other
states like Assam, Manipur, Kerala to their students are much higher than our states.
With the sixth pay recommendation, if the salaries can be hiked in all sectors of
the govt, why can't there be a little increase in incentives for students? So, I
pray our state govt. to increase the incentives which will be of great help to the
students and will boast their moral.

Facilities for tourists in Daporijo
I would like to appeal to the people of Daporijo to construct good tourist hotels
as the town is blessed with lots of tourism potentials right from adventure tourism
in Subansiri river, trekking, mountaineering, rock climbing, camping to rich tribal
Moreover, the Dist Hq is connected to major tourist circuits; Itanagar-Ziro-Daporijo-Aalo
& Pasighat which is next only to Bomdila & Tawang tourist circuits when it comes
to inflow of tourists.
Despite huge potentials for tourism in the district, it has not been fully utilized
mainly for two reasons-- lack of accommodation and lack of hygiene.
Most tourists prefer good and clean hotels and due to lack of facilities, the place
has failed to attract tourists.
If the inflows of the tourists are high, the economic condition of the citizens automatically
improves. And many people can be employed in the sector if the tourist inflow is
So I appeal to the people of Daporijo to construct good private hotels or Govt should
come forward to construct good lodges for the greater interest of the tourists and
for employment and income generations for unemployed youths of the state.

Make way for engineers
Apropos the article 'APESA Appeal' in your daily in which they called for banning
of creation of engineering wings in non engineering departments, I would say that
it like monopoly in business sector and it sounds ridiculous.
Let us think about the hundreds of unemployed engineers. If all the posts are filled
by the working engineers, then what shall the ever increasing engineers with diploma
and degree do? Shall these young engineers wait till those in job retire?
Therefore, the organization should relax the ban on creation of engineering wing/section
in non engineering department and open atleast few employment opportunities to the
1000 Diploma/Degree unemployment engineers.

Cycling on our treacherous roads would be suicidal
All those who argue that high petrol prices will not affect the common man, I wish
to point out that a vast section of the middle and lower middle class and the poorest
of the poor depends on petrol for transport. A strong recommendation for using the
bicycle is good but cycling on our treacherous roads would be suicidal.
Although the Centre does not put out numbers, conservative estimates suggest that
half the excise duty collection in the country is from petroleum products.
In 2011-12, therefore, the Centre expects to earn about Rs 82,000 crore as excise
duty from petroleum products. A Rs 1 cut in excise duty on petrol results in a revenue
loss of about Rs 4,000 crore — or 10% of the outlay for the rural employment guarantee
scheme — and reduces its ability to spend on welfare schemes and other heads.
Then, coupled with the government’s inability to keep its expenditure under control,
there are massive leakages in direct and indirect tax collections and complete exemption
of agricultural income from taxes. This explains the government’s unwillingness to
cut taxes on petroleum products.
Petrol and Diesel are components of CPI basket. Increase in the price of any will
certainly have a major effect on inflation. It will cause automatic and unprecedented
rise in prices of all commodities in Arunachal Pradesh hitting hard the common people.
Bajrang Lal Pancharia,
The peculiar ATM
In response to the letter with caption “Almost became one of the first street beggars”
I would like to share with Vivek’s unfortunate experience in Daporijo Town.
The SBI ATM of Daporijo has been playing hide & seek with the people since its inception.
Its service is unpredictable. It is something like tossing a coin: you need to depend
on luck and chance for getting your own money from the ATM. Infact we need to pray
before leaving for ATM booth! Sometimes, it remains defunct for months together due
to the technical snag. Even they need to depend on technical person from Kolkata
or Guwahati who take several days to arrive in Daporijo.
There is no dearth of Social/Political/Student leaders in the Daporijo Township.
In fact, for every five person there is one Social/Student leader. But who care for
common cause! Those so called leaders are hankering after easy money and name and
fame. They are interested only where the money is involved. They won’t get anything
by raising issues like non-functioning of ATM services in Daporijo. In fact they
won’t get loan and other money related favours from the SBI if they do so .
Solving ATM problem is not in the election manifesto. Then, why the political leader
should bother about? He is not going to stand in the queue like us in the ATM booth.
Lastly, we would like to know from the SBI authority why your ATM is peculiarly behaving
and when we could expect proper service from your end?

Let’s stop our arguments here
Apropos the letter of Byabang Joram published on November 7, I would like to clarify
that I neither defended former chief minister Jarbom Gamlin nor showed any reservation
over appointment of Nabam Tuki as chief minister.
The intention of my letter was to request the Congress leaders of the state not to
play the same trick on Tuki as they did with Gamlin. Because, in the game of pushing
and pulling, the ultimate sufferers are the common people.
Further, what actually I wanted to say was, unlike Union Territories, in a democratic
set up like ours, the Centre, AICC chief or any party high commands cannot interfere
in leadership change issue unless they get any indication from within the party leaders
of the ruling party.
However, let’s bury our differenced here and appeal to all to extend full cooperation
and support to the new chief minister for overall development of the state.
