AAPSU softens stand on Ramesh visit, questions MLAs for helping themselves
ITANAGAR, Sept 8: Responding to the plea by Adi Students Union, the apex student
body of state All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union today said if the visit of union
minister for environment and forest, Jairam Ramesh to Pasighat benefits local population
in anyway then union won’t oppose his visit.
AAPSU had threatened to disrupt the visit of Ramesh to Arunachal after he advocated
that Chinese expertise be taken for various hydropower projects of state during
a visit to Beijing in May 9, 2010. The Union who prefers to call Ramesh the Chinese
stooge had objected to his visit to Pasighat on Sept 11.
However today AdiSU had appealed the apex student body to reconsider the decision,
as they believe that visit of Ramesh to Pasighat may help local residents to express
their grievances and also make him understand the ground reality of Lower Siang Hydropower
In a press statement, AAPSU President Takam Tatung said that union in principle opposes
visit of Ramesh for his pro-China stand but if local citizen of Pasighat feel that
his visit may offer them a chance to present their pain and sadness, AAPSU won’t
come in between. “AAPSU as an organization stands for the people of Arunachal. If
our Adi brothers and sisters think that visit of Jairam Ramesh can make a difference
regarding Lower Siang hydropower project, then we will not oppose his visit,” stated
Tatung. He further urged union environment and forest minister to use this occasion
to visit Karsingsa and give environment clearance to long pending green field airport
whose foundation was laid down by former union home minister Shivraj Patil way back
on 20th February 2007. But till date central government has not given mandatory environmental
clearance for work to start on Green Field airport project. “Despite being a sensitive
state, Arunachal does not have an airport of its own. People of this state have been
eagerly waiting for this green field airport to start operation. But environment
ministry has not given clearance yet and union minister Jairam Ramesh should take
this opportunity to work in this regard,” said Tatung.
AAPSU has also criticized the way MLAs and ministers made mockery of recently concluded
assembly session. “Instead of discussing about various burning problems which has
been making life of ordinary people tough, our ministers and MLAs are busy making
life easy for themselves by increasing their perks. This is an insult to people of
Arunachal,” stated AAPSU president. He further added, “Even in floor of house they
only talk against students and student unions. Why can’t they discuss about problems
of their respective constituency? Why can’t they discuss about needs to streamline
education system of state, so that students will be more interested in study then
He also suggested that with constant economic blockade being imposed by Assam based
organizations against Arunachal because of boundary skirmishes, state government
should appoint someone like Minoti Riba, wife of former Chief Minister late Tomo
Riba as a mediator. “Though she is Assamese by birth, she is now an Arunachalee having
married son of this soil. She can act as mediator and help smoothen the relations
between Assam and Arunachal. Government should appoint her as peace mediator,” said
AAPSU President also urged state government to look into the demands of All Nyishi
Students Union regarding setting up of hydropower projects in Nyishi belt. “If hydropower
projects in Nyishi areas can bring new development, then government should consider
demand of ANSU seriously and let big developer invest in Nyishi belt,” stated Tatung.
AdiSU nullify outcome of meeting on Dam
ITANAGAR, Sept 8: Adi Students Union strongly condemned and nullified the outcome
of the state Govt orchestrated meeting at Banquet Hall here on September 7.
The union in a release today said the outcome of the meeting was pre- decided as
the meeting was held with the sole motive to take pro dam decision. The union further
said that all the delegates of the meeting were pro-dam people with vested interests
who have been brought to Itanagar by the government and Jaypee Associates.
The AdiSU urged the ‘people first government’ to go to poor, illiterate and ignorant
landowners of the project affected areas, if it really wants to serve the people.
The union further claimed that various other organizations including West Siang
Dam Affected Peoples Association, Mebo Bachao Committee, affected people of Kebang,
Yeksi, Tarak, Lokpeng. Damda, Logum Jini, Rengo, Babuk, Pareng, Riga, Geku, Pongging,
Jeru, Bodak villages, Sika Bamin Youth Association, Sissen Jomlo Monku Youth Association
who are opposing the Lower Siang Hydro Electric Project have also nullified the outcome
of the meeting. It’s a blot on democracy and indigenous people’s rights by the Government
and the Jaypee Associates whose only motive is profit, AdiSU said and added that
the union stands to its decision of No Dams on Siang without any condition.

Towards a policy for Cooperative movement
ITANAGAR, Sept 8: The state cooperative society is organizing a 2 days Workshop cum
Seminar with the theme –‘Drafting of State Cooperative Policy’ at Banquet Hall here
today. The programme is sponsored by ICPD, Arunachal Pradesh.
Attending the inaugural programme as the Chief Guest Parliamentary Secretary, Nido
Pabitra said that the seminar would see the outcome of a policy and will provide
a blueprint for shaping the Cooperative Movement of the state.
Pointing out tourism & hotel industries, micro hydel, surface transport communication,
rural housing, health care, stone crushing, tea industries, cane, bamboo & wood based
industries, working capital loan for Apex Bank etc as the potential sector where
the cooperative activities could be diversified, Nido urged the experts gathered
in the house to formulate the cooperative policies to tap potentialities of the mentioned
sectors with promotional support of different central agencies.
Mentioning that augmenting farm production for the ultimate benefit of farmers &
artisans as the another object for formulating State Cooperative Policies for opening
up scope for cooperative activities in all functional areas, N. Pabitra said it needs
an integrated approach with inter-disciplinary and inter departmental functionaries.
In the absence of clear-cut state policies, it is not practicable to forge an integrated
approach for implementation of various central sector Schemes to tap the given potentialities.
The vast potentialities of the state can contribute to the national GDP in a big
way if the natural resources are channalized in its right perspectives, he added.
Nido, further said the cooperative system introduces the concept of entrepreneurship,
collective responsibility and democratic management with social concern; it paves
ways for induction of professionalism in management of an activity launched by the
Govt. department for socio economic development of public. Therefore he appealed
all the functional departments of the state govt. to suggest ways and means how to
transfer technologies from their lab to the land of beneficiaries and the schemes
from their files to field of the target groups who are none but the cooperators of
Managing Director NCPD, New Delhi, RCS, Corporate Executives, Resources Persons from
Pune, NERIST, Assam and various Departments of the state, officers and staff attended

Tirap’s desperate cry for help
ITANAGAR, Sept 8: On 28th August 2010, as part of the media team I landed at Kanubari
town situated in Tirap district along with ministerial delegation to visit Russa
village, which had witnessed boundary skirmishes with neighboring state Assam. As
we came out of the comfort of chopper, vehicles parked near helipad were waiting
to pick us. Though media team was supposed to travel in one vehicle but due to shortage
of vehicles, I got into a Bolero car along with Arunachal IGP AVK Singh.
When we arrived, Kanubari along with rest of Tirap district was bearing brunt of
the economic blockade imposed by Assam based organizations following boundary conflict
at Russa. The entire town looked like a ‘ghost town’. Though time was around 10 am
but public movements were almost non-existent. I could only see couple of Assam Rifles
Jawans moving around. At circuit house, during few minutes of halt before we proceeded
to Russa, I managed to speak with one local resident. I asked him, why there is so
much silence in whole town? He answered, “Economic blockade have crippled our life.
There is general sadness and feeling of being orphaned. We are facing so many problems
due to blockade and it’s been more than 10 days since this blockade started but our
state government has not done enough for us.” I could sense that he was feeling alienated.
Within a split second, another person joined our conversation and said to me, “Sir,
I agree that blockade has slowed life here. But our town and in general Tirap is
a dead district.” Taken aback by his shocking statement, I asked him what made him
think like that. He reasoned, “Underground groups (UG) and Indian military personnel
has killed the very soul of people here. We are just living life for the sake of
living. We can’t’ dream of better future like rest of Arunachalee.”
He continued, “If we work hard and earn money to make life better for our children,
we will be targeted. UG group will start extorting money and on the other hand military
people start torturing us by doubting that we are making money with support of UG
group. You tell us sir, how can we dream for better future living under such circumstances?”
I had no answer to his question and before I could say anything to him, a fellow
journalist yelled at me telling that everybody is rushing out as we are about to
head towards Russa village. Promising that when I come back from Russa, I will have
few words, I bid adieu to them. I got into car and we started journey towards Russa.
I asked our driver, how long it will take to reach our destination. He said distance
is only 35 km but if we take Arunachal side road it will take 2 hours and from Assam
route, it will take around 50 minutes.
But because of blockade we had to take Arunachal route. In fact driver was warning
in advance about the pitiable road condition which somehow we failed to understand!!
As we were moving out of Kanubari, I saw large number of military personnel standing
near the road and giving us protection. I could sense, situation in the area is not
as normal as in the rest of state. The more we were going away from Kanubari, the
conditions of road were getting worse. Its shame to call that stretch “a road”. It
is due to the spirit of local citizen, they have kept that road alive. If they had
decided to abandon the particular stretch of road, it could have gone beneath mother
earth long time ago. The condition of road was so bad that by the time we reach Russa
village, all of us were tired to death.
The poor condition of road made us to believe that may be it was built before British
left India. Through out the journey, dilapidated road condition and appalling living
standard of villagers made me very angry. I was just thinking why our government
neglects people of interior regions. Just because rural people can’t voice their
pain in state capital, they are being treated like second class citizen. Just because
they can’t afford to organize ‘Dharna’ in front of Chief Minister’s bungalow, government
does not care for them. And yes, what local MLA is doing? I also felt ashamed of
myself, we media person limit ourselves to state capital and nearby areas only.
By the time we winded up tour, I still could not make out the reason why places like
Kanubari, Russa and Tirap district as a whole is not witnessing major developmental
activities like rest of the state. Who is to be blamed for this mess and why does
people of Tirap are not so optimistic about their future? Perhaps I may have to wait
for someone to give me answer.
Union decries bad road conditions
ITANAGAR, Sept 8: Though state government seems to be carrying out repairing work
in road stretching from Naharlagun to Itanagar, the sad road condition of Nirjuli,
Karsingsa and Banderdewa needs attention too. The condition of road is so bad in

also asked NEEPCO and HCC authorities which uses this particular stretch of road
for carrying heavy machines and materials to take some responsibility for damage
