He informed the House that a delegation, led by him, had met Prime Minister Manmohan

apprising them of the huge PDS bills to the contractors pending since 2004 onwards.
Khandu said the Centre had agreed to pay 50 per cent of the amount in the first phase

bills for the year 2004 to 2006, as it was subjudiced.

the pending PDS bills stating that the law and order situation in the state would
deteriorate if there was further delay in making payment to the contractors.
Khandu assured the members of the House that the Centre will issue an order for making
part payment soon on the request of the state government.

their pending Hill Transport Subsidy bill amounting to Rs 205.00 cr. Likewise, eight
money decrees has been passed by Fast Tract Court on September 2007 against the state
Government with 6% interest levied annually for Rs 326.00 cr. and upon the
decreed amount the total interest till date has come almost Rs 75.0 crores. The
total amount pending as per High court order and money decree is Rs 531.00 crores.
Due to non compliance of the court order the transporters has filled an execution/attachment
of the govt. properties and rest of the transporters has filled a contempt proceedings
of the court against the state Govt. officers”.
Earlier, Food and Civil Supplies Minister Tanga Byaling said the huge amount of Rs
531 crore against the pending PDS bills of contractors could not be borne by the
state government without Centre's help as the state had got limited resources.

clarified that “Whenever any accused persons in connection with PDS case were arrested
and produced before the Special Court Yupia by the SIC, the IO had always said that

detain a person in police custody when the IO submitted that there was no need for
Therefore, the persons arrested by SIC were granted bail by the Special Court Yupia

ITANAGAR, Sept 6: All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) has said that it
would protest against visit of Minister of Environment and Forest Jairam Ramesh to
Arunachal Pradesh who the Union termed as a Chinese stooge and acting on behalf of
China. The Minister is scheduled to visit Pasighat in Sept 11 to have talks with
those protesting against the dams in Siang.
The students are upset after the statement made by the Ramesh on May 9, 2010 where
he advocated seeking Chinese expertise for constructing dams in Arunachal Pradesh
and wants action by the centre against the minister.
At a time, when we are vehemently protesting China’s illogical claim over our State
and its expansionist agenda, such an irresponsible and outrageous comment from a
Union Minister prompted us to give vent to our anger by burning his effigy, the very
The Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre has always adopted a flip-flop policy
on our State. It is not clear whether it really considers Arunachal Pradesh as an
integral part of India. A couple of years ago, the Union Finance Minister Pranab
Mukherjee during his visit to Tawang on the occasion of Buddha Mahotsava in 2008,
who was the then External Affairs Minister had also said that some parts of Arunachal
Pradesh are negotiable. Now, AAPSU wants to know whether the territory of Arunachal

“No dams on Siang” says Forum as it questions consultative meet
ITANAGAR, Sept 6: Siang Peoples Forum has condemned the arbitrary stand taken by
the East Siang District Administration in selection of organizations to take part
in the proposed public consultation in regards to Lower Siang Hydro Electric Power
Project on September 7. The meeting is being convened by Government of Arunachal
The forty participants from various organisations short listed by the East Siang
district administration were arbitrarily put up with no prior information to all
the protesting groups.
Going by the conduct of East Siang district administration, we are left with no option
but to conclude that public consultation is stage managed for a pro dam outcome,
said the release.
The meet is a ploy to derail the anti dam sentiments which have recently started
taking place in the minds of the common people of the Siang valley in particular
and Arunachal Pradesh in general, it added.
The meet is nothing but a drama staged on behalf of Jaypee Associates and players
who continue to sing to the tune Jaypee wants. Unfortunately among those dancing
to the tunes of Jaypee would be the legislators of the district who were elected
by the very citizens who do not want dams on Siang, it said.
The Forum reiterating its stand which was made known to Union Minister for Environment
and Forests at New Delhi on August 10, said ‘No Dams on Siang’.

its endeavour to bring an end to illegal and criminal activities within capital complex

on being served extortion notice to them in the name of NLCT. He clarified that
local underground (UG) elements have been neutralized and those who are still indulging
in criminal activity like serving extortion notice in the name of NLCT are miscreants

Pinch bats for Arunachal at NCP convention
ITANAGAR, Sept 6: Arunachal Pradesh is a very much integral part of India, said
Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) Arunachal Pradesh President Ngurang Pinch while
addressing the NCP convention held at New York, America on Sept 3 and 4.
Exhorting the foreign investors/corporate to extend support in making Arunachal
a state throbbing with development activities, Pinch said there is enormous scope
to extend cooperation particularly in the field of technical and medical education,
horticulture and food processing and rural and urban development activities in Arunachal
Giving a brief historical background of Arunachal Pradesh, Pinch, however, regretted
that being the store house of enormous potentials for development, the state is suffering
for want of proper, fool proof planning for development and a corruption free administration
due to lack of strong political will.
“Lack of understanding about ground realities has spoiled the broth for hydro-power
developers in Arunachal Pradesh”, Pinch said adding “their snail-space progress has
practically amounted to no progress so far. In almost all sectors needing development,
a virtual cart-before the horse situation is prevailing in Arunachal Pradesh. The
overall capping is done by the sweet demon called corruption”, he said.
He said the growth so far visible in Arunachal is cosmetic and most of the promised
things are yet to be realized. What Arunachal needs today is a definite relief from
corruption and money culture, he said.
Pinch said, in Arunachal Pradesh Panchayat bodies are elected but without meaningful
financial power. The NCP has to decide now as to how to make rural bodies financially
strong to serve the needy and poor.
He said popularizing a corruption free, accepted and viable development plan and
programmes will help the NCP to gain people’s confidence in Arunachal Pradesh for
having a NCP Govt in coming days.
He also proposed a NCP conclave at Itanagar to restructure the political scenario
of the state.
