The All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union has demanded the state government to come out with a white paper entailing the number of power projects awarded to different firms for executing power projects in the state. The apex students’ body of the state also demanded the government to make public the information regarding number of Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) inked with different power developers, including revenue generated so far, besides the policies framed to protect the interests of the indigenous population of the state, reported UNI . The union yesterday submitted a 12-point memorandum to Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu and set a deadline of two months for considering all its demands, AAPSU president Takam Tatung told mediapersons here today. ‘’It is not known whether the government had framed necessary policy to protect state’s ecology, water resources, natural resources like forests, wildlife and rehabilitation of the project affected people while executing mega projects in the state,’’ Mr Tatung pointed out. He further stressed the need to ensure that the firms which were allotted different projects executed those on time. While demanding for enacting legislation by the government in the form of Education Bill, the AAPSU said the basic objective would be to stem out some impediments facing the government such as framing proper job-oriented syllabus or policy, transparent transfer and posting for teachers in government schools. ‘’We are relentlessly pursuing the government to streamline the existence of surplus teachers in various schools of the capital complex for distribution to other schools at far-flung areas where a few such lying defunct due to non-availability of teachers,’’ the AAPSU leader said. The other demands of the union include proper hostel facilities to students, enhancement of stipends, proper implementation of mid day meal scheme, establishment of National Institute of Technology (NIT) in the state, renaming of Rajiv Gandhi University as Arunachal University.
