Capital road need honest attention

Dear Editor,

Through your esteemed daily I want to ask few questions to department of PWD and Government of AP. Are they really concern about the citizen of the State in particular people living here in capital town? Are they really taking any kind of measures to fix the poor condition of the capital road? Do they really feel the bumpy ride of the capital road? May be not, because they travel in SUVs. No one can feel it like we common people do every time we travel by a Tempo or Tracker? Have their eyes gone blind, can’t they see the potholes of capital road?

What are they doing with the central fund, aren’t they going to use it on developmental activities of the state and in particular beautification of the capital town? These ministers of our state really like to visit the developed states as well as countries with the public money. I wonder what they learn from those places. Rather than enjoyment only they should learn a bit from there and implement it to beautify our state by maintaining hygiene and sanitation also. By maintaining the natural beauty and enhancing it with  bit more idea, our state can draw the attention of many tourists. But the government is failing to do so. How long we have to live  in this unhealthy and poor condition? Even we cannot take stroll in the road because of its foul smell spreading everywhere and it will cause health hazardous in the near future. My earnest requests to the people of the state in particular the citizen of the capital complex, let’s wake up from the deep slumber.

Let’s transform ourselves to live a better tomorrow.

Deafening silence by student organizations

Dear Editor,

Through your esteemed daily we on behalf of all rejected candidates of APPSCE'13 would like to share our opinion of ongoing situation.

These days newspaper is flooded with activities of student organization— AAPSU, ANSU, SUMA— on issues relating to public welfare. We acknowledge and appreciate their work for our state’s welfare. But, should not they give priority to student's grievances? Here more than 2000 genuine and qualified students are being deprived from taking preliminary exam of state's top most civil service exam.

We utterly fail to understand the logic behind the deafening silence by student organizations. These student organizations are quite vocal when it comes to raise voice against the demolition of big structures which is mostly of private interests but on the other hand when their own family member (students) are in deep trouble they look other way.   Who is stopping to fight for the cause of your own family?

Structures can be rebuilt but career once spoilt is lost forever. Many of the candidates would be appearing for the last time.  Despite being fully aware of our grievance, it is really sad that not even a single student organization have raised our matter before the Commission, State Govt or in any known platform for that matter.

APPSC is an autonomous and constitutional body. Commission can take its decisions independently so what is stopping them to review their decision? In recent past, the Commission has amended its decision for the greater interest of the candidates, why not in our genuine case? Why didn't the Commission come up with wider publication of its rules and regulations to the student community? Moreover, the Commission took more about year time to bring out the selection/rejection list.  Till then, candidates (including the 2000 rejected) were deeply engrossed in studies exhausting their time, hard work and money—who is going to compensate this loss?

We are not here to blame the Commission alone; we fully acknowledge our unintentional mistakes and we apologize for it.  We are even ready to undergo any sort of penalty as deemed fit by the Commission provided we are given a chance to appear in the preliminary exam.

Lastly, we fervently appeal the Commission to extend some mercy on our genuine plea or the very motto of the Commission’s—TALENT SEARCH— would go null and void. Commission can save the career of so many talents who are pinning their last hope on the favourable decision by the Commission.

Issuing allotment is the best solution

Dear Editor,

The recent show cause notice served to the residents of government colonies for having constructed structures within the premises of their quarter is nothing but another tactics to suppress and harass the poor common and not so important people. Unless it is on the Row, temple, dam, common play ground, how can the government impose a huge 4 meter norm to the residents of type l, ll and type lll dwellers? Just because the high ranking officers are allotted big quarters with big lawns and backyards, they shouldn’t be the only to erect skyscrapers and nothing to worry about the 4 meter norm.  The residents of smaller quarters have the every right to build or construct whatever space is available to their backyards. How can a person build a house in 5 meter square space after leaving 4 meter distance from any side? The best solution for the government would be to issue allotment to all the already erected structures without batting an eyelid and earn some revenue rather than giving the poor people sleepless night of all their savings and hard earned money turning into dust.

Corruption destroying Upper Subansiri

Dear Editor,

The genuine unemployed youth of Upper Subansiri district has not been selected in PMEGP beneficiary for 2013-14 inspite of them putting best efforts by collecting documents and preparation/selection of feasibility scheme from different technical expert for the same purpose. There has been bee­line of real unemployed youth of the district with high expectation of free and fare interview based on project and genuine candidate. However there has been discreprency in the way beneficiary was selected by the board member.

The section of officers and public leaders are suffocating citizen with the corrupt practices.

Because of high corruption poor and needy unemployed youth of district are worse affected as they struggle for livelihood.  

Therefore, it is serious cause of concern to all of us as most of the officers and publics leaders are under influence of corrupt politician. I sincerely appeal to the Deputy Commissioner of the district to judiciously exercise most valuable right to root out the social problems of district. If such corruption is not stopped immediately, we the bonafide citizen of the district will be compelled to make agitation against the vested interest officers and the leaders of the district.

The faith of the common people from their district officers and public leaders is evaporating day by day. The need of constitutional remedies and proper channelization by applying intellectual sense to provide legal justices to the political subjugated officers and leaders is need of the hour. The slight error in our judgment may have a retrogressive impression on our mature district.

Therefore I strongly condemned those officers and leaders working round the clock with vested interest and mischief maker. Interference from any quarter must be stopped in any interview process. As a lovers of peace and tranquility in the district I humbly appeal all the educated person, senior citizen, legal expert and student wings like DSU,  ATSU  NGO’s etc of the Upper Subansiri District, to deal anti-social officers and leaders with an iron first.

Greenhouse gases

Fifty of the 500 largest listed companies in the world are responsible for nearly three quarters of the group’s 3.6 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, so finds the CDP Global 500 Climate Change Report 2013. The carbon emitted by these 50 highest emitting companies, which primarily operate in the energy, materials and utilities sectors, has risen by 1.65% to 2.54 billion metric tons over the past four years.  This increase is equivalent to adding more than 8.5 million pickup trucks to the streets, or the supply of electricity to 6 million homes for a year.

While the biggest emitters present the greatest opportunity for large-scale change, the report identifies opportunities for all Global 500 companies to help build resilience to climate and policy shocks by significantly reducing the amount of carbon dioxide they produce each year.  For example, the emissions from nearly half (47%) of the most carbon intensive activities that companies identify across their value chains are yet to be measured.  

The lack of detailed reporting and information of GHGs from sources related to company activities (Scope 3 emissions), as opposed to those from sources owned or directly controlled by them, may lead companies to underestimate their full carbon impact. For example, two thirds (72%) of the Global 500 measure emissions associated with business travel but this equates to just 0.2% of the sample’s reported Scope 3 emissions.  Nearly all financial businesses are managing their travel emissions but less then a tenth (6%) are reporting the emissions associated with their investments, the sector’s prime source of Scope 3 emissions.
