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
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
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
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
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
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.

---- Editorial ----
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.
