Challenging the allegation, the state BJP president also demanded the APCC to prove
The Congress is trying to divert the attention of the people to cover up its failures
by unnecessarily dragging up our name into their internal matter, Tagak said, and
flayed the Congress party for failing to control its own MLAs.
He also said that the Congress has lost the credibility to rule the state due to
their internal fight. The people of the state give mandate to the Congress during
last elections but the government has utterly failed to deliver and made the people
the victims of their political fight, Tagak said.
“The ruling government has shown disrespect to the people by halting various central
sponsored schemes and other schemes amounting to Rs 516.55 crore per month. The state
needs development and the state government must utilize whatever fund comes from
Center judiciously”, Tagak said.
He also sought Raj Bhawan’s intervention for the current infighting in the government
and appealed him to call a special session of the assembly to prove majority of the
present government. He also alleged that the present government is indulging in horse
trading using the state exchequer.

CM insists on continuous monitoring
of ongoing SPA projects
ITANAGAR, Nov 9: Chief Minister Nabam Tuki today insisted on continuous monitoring
of on-going SPA projects by concerned heads of the executing agencies.
While expressing satisfaction over the progress of the works during a review meeting
of all on-going projects in the state being implemented under Special Plan Allocation
(SPA), Chief Minister also requested the officers to complete the unfinished projects
and submit the UCs in a time-bound manner.
He, however, expressed concern over some of the projects being delayed due to litigations
and asked the executing agencies to resolve all such issues so that development of
the state does not suffer. The CM insisted that all projects should be completed
within this working season before onset of monsoons.
The meeting which was attended by all Commissioners and Secretaries of working departments
decided that they will personally inspect all projects pertaining to their respective
departments and submit detail reports.
The inspection reports will inter-alia include the status and quality of the projects,
handing-taking over of assets to user agencies, whether asset has been put to use,
by whom, Utilization Certificates and Completion Certificates. Wherever, the Commissioners
and Secretaries are not able to reach, the concerned Deputy Commissioners will personally
inspect such projects and submit the report.
Tuki asserted that during the inspections the concerned official should also identify
critical, priority gaps and propose for inclusion in the next budget. He directed
that the inspection spree should be completed and reports submitted by December 31st
Based on these inspection reports, if any misuse of funds is detected, the Chief
Minister categorically stated that a thorough enquiry will be initiated and those
found responsible will be dealt firmly as per law.
“The pace of development gained in the last four years is unprecedented. We did
not make so much progress in the past 30 years that we are doing now,” the CM said.
After going through the list of developmental projects – some completed and some
ongoing – presented by the concerned departments, the CM also congratulated all
officers and people at the ground level who have made it happen.
He reiterated his call for working as a team and said he will again take a similar
review meeting at the end of this working season.
Tuki further directed the departments to send quality photos with details of all
such projects for compilation of data of works completed under SPA.“These can be
then utilized for publication of a book for the people to know what is actually happening
at the ground,” he added.
He also called for a list of all completed projects and another list of new projects
yet to take off.
Meanwhile, Tuki raised the issue of land bank of each department. He asked them to
conduct an audit of government land and submit reports on status whether possession
is secured and take necessary remedial measures if not.
In the last seven years 2141 projects have been sanctioned under SPA of which about
half were taken up after Tuki took over as Chief Minister of the state in November
2011. Rs 483272.68 lakhs has been sanctioned for these projects and Rs 361506.66
lakhs has been already utilized. The Utilization Certificates of the completed projects

Rebel MLAs dismiss Cong allegation
ITANAGAR, Nov 9: The 21 rebel MLAs of the state strongly opposed the statement of
the Congress party that they have been hobnobbing with the Bharatiya Janata Party
They dismissed the allegation as absolutely baseless without any iota of truth.
“We are no less loyal to the party discipline than any other Congress legislator
or member in the APCC. Our difference with present CLP leader for his undemocratic
and autocratic way of functioning cannot be construed as anti-party activity as we
had never gone against the party but the incumbent CLP leader, which is within the
ambit of internal democracy of the party,” the 21 MLA stated in a joint press statement.
They said that the allegations made against them are an attempt to divert the core
issue of leadership change by painting it with the colours of anti-party activities.
They alleged that the state has plunged into the abyss of financial mis-management
and mis-governance that under the leadership of Nabam Tuki which is evident from
the State’s present financial conditions. “All sections of society are facing a state
of acute financial crunch. Development has come to standstill while corruption is
on rise,” they said and apprehended social unrest with further deterioration in law
and order in the state under the present leadership.
They reiterated that the only remedy to save Arunachal from bankruptcy and anarchism
was change of leadership.
“As a concerned citizen and representative of the people, we cannot see Arunachal
going down the drain in the hand of some persons with vested interest and that is
why we the legislators are camping here to voice our grievances for change of the
leadership within our own party which in no way amounts to anti-party activity,”
the press statement added.
It is worth mentioning here that Congress alleged that dissident party MLAs have
been working at the command of the BJP. The dissidence was created by a few MLAs
at the behest of the BJP, it further said, while APYC alleged that dissident Congress
legislators currently camping at Delhi were hobnobbing with central BJP leaders.

meet on Chakma-Hajong issue
President urged to recall Governor on airport remarks
ITANAGAR, Nov 9: The All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) has today informed
that a review petition filed by the Union in the Supreme Court on Oct 15 last against
the Court decision to grant citizenship to Chakma and Hajong refugees is slated to
be listed on Nov 19.
In case its appeal is rejected by the Apex Court, there will be a proper referendum
on the issue and this will be followed by a state-wide awareness campaign, said AAPSU
General Secretary Biru Nasi while addressing the media persons at Press Club here.
Nasi reiterated that the sensitive issue of Chakma and Hajong should not suffer because
of the present political turmoil in the state.
The AAPSU GS disclosed that the Union is also going to convene a coordination meeting
with the members of Joint Action Committee on Chakma & Hajong of Namsai and Changlang
on Nov 13 next to get first hand information and decide on its future course of action.
An all party meeting will also be convened which will be attended by the state’s
60 MLAs and 3 MPs to discuss the contentious issue after Nov 19, he said adding that
being the elected representatives of the state it is their responsibility too.
Meanwhile, taking strong exception to the Governor’s comment on the Greenfield Airport
issue, AAPSU President Kamta Lapung has said that the Governor owes an apology to
the state’s people as his statement has hurt their sentiments. The Governor’s attitude
is clearly anti-Arunachal and anti-development, Lapung said while adding that the
union has already submitted a memorandum to the President of India seeking recall
of the incumbent Governor.
The union is also going to organize a rally against Governor, he informed and sought
AAPSU general secretary Biru Nasi also urged the government not to politicize a vital
development issue like the Greenfield Airport which can go a long way in boosting
the economy of the state by creating more job avenues besides, growth of tourism
in the state. The state government cannot make land compensation an excuse for not
initiating the Greenfield Airport project in either Hollongi or Karsingsa, he said.
Speaking about the issue of disproportional land compensations which have been hampering
early implementation of the project, Nasi said that the government can shift the
Airport project to any other place, the Union has no objection granted the project
remains within the state’s territory.
Referring to the Governor’s letter to PM suggesting him to upgrade the existing Airport
at Lilabari, North Lakhimpur, Assam, instead of constructing Greenfield Airport in
Arunachal Pradesh, Nasi sought justification from him over such a proposal. How can
the Governor justify his statement which is clearly against the welfare of the state’s
people, his attitude has created an apprehension amongst people especially, over
the existing land boundary issue with Assam, a permanent solution to which is yet
to arrive, Nasi said.

People of the centurion town have to change their mindset and cooperate the administration
