While condemning the decision of the Union Ministry of Road, Transport and Highway to reject the four-lane capital highway project proposal as uncalled for, the ACR said “it is a matter of shame for the citizens of Arunachal Pradesh.”

Road plays an important role in development of strategically located state like Arunachal Pradesh, the ACS said adding “with such decision on vital road project, BJP-led NDA Govt has projected Arunachal Pradesh as it is not the integral part of India.”

NIA announces cash reward for S S Khaplang arrest

NEW DELHI, Sept 11: Three months after the gruesome attack in Manipur that left 18 Army personnel dead, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday announced a cash reward of Rs 7 lakh for information leading to arrest of S S Khaplang, Chief of NSCN-K, a rebel Naga group allegedly responsible for the killings.

The NIA also announced a cash reward of Rs 10 lakh on Niki Sumi, self-styled chief of the armed wing of NSCN-K, who is alleged to have led a group of rebels on June 4 and carried out an attack on Army personnel in Manipur's Chandel district.

"S S Khaplang is head of the NSCN (K) group and Niki Sumi is holding the charge of armed wing of the said group. They were closely associated with the decision to attack Assam Rifles personnel at Indira Gandhi Stadium, Kohima on March 26 and subsequent string of attacks on armed forces including the attack on 6 Dogra Regiment Convoy in Chandel district of Manipur on June 4 killing 18 Army personnel," the NIA said in a statement.

The agency said any member of the public giving any reliable information about the whereabouts of these hardcore terrorists that could lead to their arrest will be rewarded.

Khaplang is a resident of Myanmar while Sumi hails from Nagaland. There are reports that 75-year-old Khaplang was in a hospital and later shifted to Taga, a place which is at a junction of India-Myanmar-China border.

Piecing together the evidence collected so far, the anti-terror probe agency said the total number of militants who participated in the attack were 23 out of whom two were killed on June 4 in retaliatory action by the Army in Chandel district of Manipur, official sources said.

Army trucks were attacked with 'Lathod guns' and grenades by suspected terrorists of NSCN (Khaplang), killing 18 soldiers and injuring 15 others in the Manipur attack.

The militants had formed three groups to carry out the attack and explosive-laden cans were planted alongside the road to maximise the damage, the sources said.

During the investigations, NIA examined several surrendered militants of NSCN-K, who also helped them identify many of the accused.

In retaliatory strikes following the ambush, Indian Army commandos had hit two insurgent camps at different locations along Myanmar's border with Nagaland and Manipur, inflicting significant damage and casualties.

NSCN(K), which walked out of a ceasefire agreement with India in March this year, has been involved in a series of attacks in tandem with some other militant groups in the North-East under the banner of 'United Liberation Front of South East Asia'.

NIA had registered a case under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, Arms Act and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act in connection with the attack. PTI



GBs will be held responsible for opium cultivation: DC

CHANGLANG, Sept 10: In an effort to curb widespread opium cultivation in the district, Changlang Deputy Commissioner Wayong Khimhunsaid that Gaon Burah (GBs) of the respective villages must help stop opium cultivations in their respective jurisdiction or face being held responsible by the administration for cultivation.  

The DC asked them to report the district administration immediately on finding any area under opium cultivation within their jurisdiction.

The DC said this while inaugurating the three days awareness cum training programme of School Management Committee (SMC) and PRI members, GBs and teachers on RTE Acts, Drug Abuse, POCSO Acts, Inclusive Education and Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, organised by SSA District Mission, here at DIET Auditorium, Changlang today.

Stating that the GBs can play a key role in preventing illicit trafficking of opium and other contraband substances, he urged them to be vigilant adding that drug abuse is the main reason behind economic hardships. He appealed all to help teenagers avoid drugs in every possible way and live healthy productive lives.  

Speaking on low performing schools and low quality education in the district, the DC directed the SMC to involve GBs in their monthly meetings who will ensure teachers presence in the schools and smooth running of the classes. He also appealed GBs and SMC members for re-admission of drop out children through necessary counseling.

Handing over a monthly village report format to the GBs, the DC insisted all GBs to submit the dully filled up report to their respective administrative officers compulsorily which includes all the govt activities operating at village level and their actual performances. It was made clear that honorarium will not be sanctioned against non-performing GBs who fail to submit the report. He also asked them to check true identity of non-residents, if any, in the village to avert possible unwanted incidents.

The Deputy Commissioner also appealed the GBs to stop practice of using poisons in rivers to catch fishes adding that it not only pollutes the river but also creates serious health problems to the consumers too. He advocated for convening meetings at the respective village and sensitizing them to shun the practice.

DDSE, Changlang Hartum Loyi instructed the SMC members to submit report against erring teachers for punitive action against them. He appealed the teachers for quality work and to be a part of the solution rather than a problem by indulging in drugs abuse.

Few GBs also shared how drugs abuse alters every aspect of life.

EAC, Changlang G K Paul Choudhury deliberated on roles of GBs. Medical Superintendent Dr H Tangjang, CDPO W Khilak, and lecturer DIET N Jomoi, Changlang were the resource persons of the programme.

Winter Session could be advanced

to pass GST Bill: Naidu

NEW DELHI, Sept 11: The government, which had to give up its plan to call extended Monsoon Session of Parliament to get the GST Bill approved, said on Thursday that the Winter Session could be advanced immediately after the Bihar polls to pass the key reform measure, which it proposes to roll out from April next year.

Asking Congress, which virtually vetoed the government's plan to convene the special session, to "eschew from negative politics", Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said there is still scope for meeting the deadline for the GST Bill and expressed readiness to call an early Winter Session, which usually begins in the third week of November.

"I am terribly disappointed that we could not have the extended session to take up an important legislation like GST Bill, which is the need of the hour. But I have not given up my hope," he said here.

To a question on whether the government is still hopeful that it will be able to roll out GST from April 2016, Naidu replied in affirmative, saying there is still scope for this.

He indicated that the government is toying with the idea of the Winter Session immediately after the Bihar polls are over on November 8.

"Still there is scope. Once the Bihar elections are over, we can make one more effort. We have the Winter Session. It can be preponed. We can still meet the deadline," he said.

Holding that the public opinion is very strongly in favour of the GST Bill, Naidu said he was hopeful that Congress may revisit its stand on the issue.

He said Congress had participated in the debate over Lalit Modi controversy in Lok Sabha after earlier taking the stand of "no resignation, no discussion". PTI

Ensure proper utilization of fund

Every year, during monsoon season North East region gets battered due to the heavy rainfall. Monsoon causes large scale devastation even leading to the death of many citizens. While low lying state like Assam gets affected by wave of floods the hilly states like Arunachal, Mizoram, Manipur etc witness massive landslides.  Year after year flood causes massive destruction and ruins government as well as public properties. The worst affected are the poor people.

Besides losing their valuable items, many of them suffer from the outbreak of diseases. Sadly national media hardly covers the hardship faced by the people of NE region. Also most of the NE states are totally dependent on central government for fund in order to rebuild the flood ravaged region. Sometimes delay in the release of fund from central government creates trouble for the flood affected states. Today Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi claimed that state government was yet to get flood-management funds of an estimated Rs 1,270 crore from the Centre for the last three years. If true, it is a matter of serious concern. Government of India should release fund on time, so that flood affected people can be rehabilitated with utmost care. On their part the state government should ensure that money received under flood-management fund is not be misused by the local authorities. Especially in Arunachal, the allegation of the misuse of relief and rehabilitation fund often crops up.

Illegal encroachment in govt quarters

Dear Editor,

Prayer for immediate spot verification of department quarters at Polo Colony, Naharlagun, wherein forceful illegal encroachment is going on. As a result, some of the occupants/allottees had already surrendered the quarters due to frequent disturbance and threat of dire consequences, if reported to the authority.

There is gross encroachment of Co-operative quarters at Polo Colony, Naharlagun by some unknown persons. They are not only encroaching but they are also damaging the public property like roads, drains, fencing, walls, buildings etc. which is causing nuisance. The occupants especially, the non-tribal have been compelled to give up/surrender the quarter because of frequent disturbance.

Further it is to inform you that I along with some of the aggrieved occupants of govt quarters had already informed the concern authority but due to lenient action against the encroachers, now, they have started to construct permanent structure by damaging the roads, drains, fencing, quarters. As a result of it we have no other option but to surrender/give up the quarters and shift to rented house.

Therefore, I highly request that the concern authority visit each and every RCS quarters Polo Colony, Naharlagun.

This ain’t a ballad

Dear Editor,

It’s really surprising to gulp the truth that this year also I am not included in the absorbing list. Despair and helplessness written large on my face. I believe I have given the best years of my life into facilitating the ever growing young minds of every school I came along in the best possible way I could.

I had a temper like many others, winning was everything. But life is bigger than that, we should take the larger view over the horizon, then, we will see there is a whole world out there. Not to see the good in others is to deny their talent, is to lack generosity. All of the time we talk about quality Education. Where this quality does comes from? – Dedication, sincerity, enthusiasm, willingness, caring, concern makes quality I suppose. I question the Government, if you don’t see, does it not exist? Whenever we reward positive behaviour, it gets repeated, but when we reward negative behaviour, then that gets repeated too.

This runaway train is taking away my zeal, enthusiasm, flair, passion, effort, focused attention, energy, and time. Time is our most precious gift because we only have a set amount of it. We can make more money, but we cannot make more time. When we give someone our time, we are giving them a portion of our life that we will never get back. Our time is our life. That is why the greatest gift we can give someone is our time.

I really don’t want to be among those good for nothing, bunch of – arrears, 6, 7, 8 pay commission, earn leave mongers.

Finally, I dreamt of owning a car in my name through SBI, adding one more vehicle to the log jam, hypothecated traffic of Itanagar, but alas! 12 years of hope and expectation is a very long time. Anyways life is what happens to us while we are busy making other plans. Whatever, the best don’t worry about being liked, they just do what their conscience tells them is right. So, I say Thank You Govt. of Arunachal. But this ain’t a ballad.

High MBBS fees

Dear Editor,

Through the esteem column of your newspaper, we would like to throw some light on the expenses of medical studies in Maharashtra and also want to draw the attention of Department of Health Education, Government of Arunachal Pradesh in this regard.

For first year our college fees was Rs 61,561/- and for the second year we paid Rs 82,443/- And we feel like we are studying in some private institution. For lower middle class like us it is a lot of money. And that was only college fees which doesn’t include hostel fees or food. This is the fee structure of all government medical colleges of Maharashtra and since there are three GOI medical seats for Arunachal Pradesh in Maharashtra, therefore we all face the same problems. The reason for fee is that we are considered open category in Maharashtra whereas the people of ST categories or any other categories pay around Rs 12,111/- only as their college fees. The other thing is that in our college there is another GOI seat for union territories and our seniors of GOI seat from Lakshadweep get refund of all the college fees after showing the fee receipt. They get refund for their travelling expenses.

As we reach the end, we would humbly urge the Ministry of Health and Education, Govt. of Arunachal Pradesh to look into this matter and take some appropriate action.

Different set of recruitment rules

Dear Editor,

This is in support of the steps taken by Nyapin Nyobia Sangram Phassang Students Union (NNSPSU) regarding anomaly in the recruitment of Accountants under residential School, SSA in Kurung Kumey District published in your daily on September 5, 2015 under the Heading “NNSPSU allege anomaly in recruitment”.

I am gratified by the awakening step taken by the Union on the Authorities of Education Department, Kurung Kumey for their misleading and mystifying acts which have shattered the aspiration of hundreds of graduates in the district. This is a mockery of our district. How come a class XII pass be, in any way, qualified as an Accountant? Such deceptive recruitment degrades the Quality of Education and defames the district itself. There are numerous B.Com./BBA and other graduates in the District who strive for a chance of entering into the department through their intelligence and qualification but if the system owns its own criteria of recruitment overlooking Government’s Recruitment Guidelines, what would be the future of young generations?

After a thorough search into the system, it has been found that on 06/12/2014, 13 candidates were selected mystifyingly with Appointment order No. NO.ED/KK/SSA/RS/SUP-STAFFS-54/2013-14/11200 by the Concerned Authority out of which 12 candidates were only class XII passed. Besides Accountant, there are several illegal and incessant appointments of SSA Teachers. That too, appointed without notification.

Our country needs quality Teachers- a teacher who transforms the configuration of students’ brain and help them create a scientific-imaginary-new world but today we see a person who never knew ABC of grammar becomes a Teacher by the recommendation of Concerned Authority. How astonishing is that? I wonder how would be their students. No offense, I know there are many teachers who deserve huge round of applause.

Ignoring the qualified candidates is a big question for a democratic country like India. This way, the Corruption pervades the entire societies. Such chronic malignant tumor is expanding in the society incessantly like fission reactions and it can only be stopped if the State Government prioritizes good governance.

This is a failure of transparency of the Education Department. The aspirants of the district demand the Secretary, Education Department to take strong action against the authority for misusing the power. We also seek the intrusion of Higher Authorities into such several deceptive recruitments in various departments’ in the state so that further trickery to its denizens may be interrupted or at least minimized in future.
