    Centurion Pasighat puts Arunachal GoI radar

    By Pradeep Kumar , ITANAGAR | Aug 03 | : With road, railway and air communication to Centurion town of Pasighat being developed fast, the famous cane-bamboo hanging bridge over the mighty Siang, shown by Siddharth Kak in famous DD serial Surabhi, would be a passé soon.

    Centurion Pasighat puts Arunachal GoI radar

    Pasighat is the land of the mighty Siang and indigenous hanging bridges, round cane rings, swinging strings, shattered wooden pavements dangling above the mighty Siang makes it a picture perfect moment of thrill and adventure. Thus, had drawn the attention of Kak as a unique mode of communication in this Himalayan state.
    With its scenic splendors, Pasighat, the HQs of East Siang district, state‚Ä(TM)s oldest town, founded in 1911 AD by the British as a gateway to administrative convenience of the greater Abor Hills, once known as the educational and political hub of Arunachal Pradesh, has been recommended to be considered by the Centre under its Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) scheme, launched by the GoI to develop 100 Smart Cities. The decision was taken recently in a meeting here chaired by Chief Secretary Ramesh Negi.
    Though Pasighat was selected for shifting NEFA‚Ä(TM)s its capital from Shillong because of various infrastructural development in the whole of the state as one of the main reasons, which lost the privilege for various reasons and then Lt Governor K A A Raja decided to set up the temporary capital at Naharlagun to be shifted to Itanagar as permanent one despite the rejection of Survey of India because of its loose soil condition.
    Pasighat is connected with road and have frequent services from Guwahati, Lakhimpur or Itanagar. Waterways crossing river Brahmaputra from Dibrugarh by ferry to Oryamghat, 32 km off Pasighat and can take a bus or taxi while Murkongselek, is the nearest rail head, terminal station of Rangia-Murkongselek, 26.5 km away from Pasighat, whose socio-economic survey was conducted for extending the railway line and land acquisition process is one. This was one of the two major rail projects in NE announced in 2010 by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Interestingly the engineering-traffic survey for the Pasighat-Tezu-Parshuram Kund was also conducted by NR Railways.
    The advanced landing ground is scheduled to completed by December next to facilitate direct air link and the under construction Bogibeel bridge project over the Siang, about 100 Km away from Pasighat on completion by 2017 would boost the road connectivity. Moreover, the Defence Ministry has identified four strategic lines along India-China border - Missamari-Tenga-Tawang (378 km), Bilaspur-Manali-Leh (498 km), Pasighat-Tezu-Rupai (227 km) and North Lakhimpur-Bame-Silapathar (249 km), MoS or Railways Manoj Sinha said in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha which aimed at constructing 1,352 km strategic railway lines along the China border.
    The township which marked 100 years of its existence in January 2011, has a rich history as Pasighat emerged due to the last Anglo-Abor War that was fought in 1912 subsequent to fourth Anglo-Abor War in 1894. This necessitated the first ever administrative HQs being set up there with an assistant political officer posted. In the post-independent Era, Pasighat is credited with the first airfield (near Paglek) set up in 1946, state‚Ä(TM)s first Agricultural Institute set up in 1950, state‚Ä(TM)s second General Hospital set up in 1954 (though some claim it as old as the town itself), Co-operative Society Ltd in 1957, state‚Ä(TM)s first College - Jawaharlal Nehru College set up on 04.07.1964, state‚Ä(TM)s first ever All India Radio station in 1966, College Of Horticulture and Forestry Central Agriculture University set up on 07.03.01 and state‚Ä(TM)s Govt Nursing Training Institute inaugurated on 21.09.14.
    Pasighat is located at an average elevation of 153-m, experiences tropical humid climate during summer and dry mild winter, receives heavy rainfall every year during monsoon season starting from May until September as surrounded by high hills, winter is marked by cold dry local seasonal wind which blows throughout the winter contributing to make it fog-free even in winter.
    The Brahmaputra emerges from the foothills under the name of Dihang or Siang. It enters India as Dihang, west of Sadiya town in Arunachal Pradesh. Flowing south-west, it receives its main left bank tributaries, Dibang and Lohit, thereafter, it is known as the Brahmaputra. Then it races across the Pasighat (north of Assam) heading for the Assam plains as the mighty Brahmaputra, the only male river in India.
    My only caution is the Pasighat needs to have an effective flood monitoring system as the state would never forget the June 9, 2000 deluge when the Siang water level rose suddenly by 30m inundating almost the entire town when the people were asleep because of sudden collapse of an artificial blockage in Yarlung Tasngpo in Tibet, creating a never seen before such a catastrophe. With China beginning to ‚Ä~damming‚Ä(TM) the mighty river such precaution would be highly essential. China has already built a 540MW project at Zangmu in 2014, others planned at Gyatsa, Zhongda, Jiexu and Langzhen.
    Agriculture is the main occupation of local people with rice is the main food crop produced in the area and state‚Ä(TM)s first Food Corporation of India‚Ä(TM)s procurement centre was set up there. Agriculture, horticulture and tourism continue to be the main source of economy for the town.
    Pasighat is predominantly inhabited by the Adi people, has also very rich culture and boasts of the Daying Ering Wildlife Sanctuary, 13 km away, the archaeological site of Malinithan, 100 km, in neighbouring West Siang district is linked to the legend of Lord Krishna and his wife Rukmini. The dismembered head of Sati (Parvati) is said to have fallen at nearby Akashiganga, according to ancient Hindu myths while Komsing village, on the left bank of the Siang, bears testimony of the patriotism of Arunachalees as captain Noel Williamson, political agent of the British Raj & his doctor companion were carrying the message of the death of King Edward VII to the tribal chiefs, but he was murdered on the spot on 31.03.1911 as Williamson‚Ä(TM)s grave in the village still has its original stone inscription and a more recent brass plaque and Kekar Monying, A mountain cliff near Rottung is an important historical place because it was here that the Adis put up a strong resistance against the British in 1911. The war was a part of a punitive expedition undertaken by the British for murdering Williamson.

    Tezu faces worst power crisis

    From Bishnu Rana , TEZU | Aug 03 | : ‚ÄĘ Dhuranalah & Tafragam MHS still defunct

    This district HQs town still gripped by power crisis with the denizens experiencing sweltering because of scorching heat while the 3x100 KW Dhuranalah Micro Scheme-I (DMS) and 2x100 KW Tafragam-II remain defunct.
    The 132 KV line under construction to supply power to Lohit from central power grid but the hydropower department (HPD) has failed so far to make Dhuranalah MHS functional.

    Despite spending crores of funds to replace old Joyti model turbine to Toshiba hi-tech turbine generation, the outcome is still negative, rued a Tafragam local citizen and wondered the fund has gone.
    The entire scheme is nothing but an eyewash, alleged another local.
    'The turbines are in derfucnt since the day of installation and Tafragam turbine which used to generate 100 to 150 KW reduced its generation to 50 KW after major repair that cost around crore, claimed another local.
    Both the MHS phases covering Changliang, Dhuraliang, Tafragam, Tezugam, VKV Tafragam and parts of Koloriang villages, meets supplies to the VIPs, district hospital, IGG College, DC/SP office, GHS School, power street lights here but regrettably 30 to 40 KW of generated by Dhuranalah MHS was too inadequate to meet the crisis.
    Contradicting the HPD claim of less water discharge, another concerned citizen pointed out that the water discharge was about 1600 litres, sufficient to run the triplet synchronized Toshiba turbines during rainy days and also second phase of Tafragam MHS.
    Both Duranallah and Tafragam hydel stations are funded by Union Ministry of New and Renewable Energy. The HPD has received Rs. 402.63 lakh (including state share of Rs 90 lakh) and Rs 282.70 lakh (state share Rs 56.26 lakh) for Duranallah and Tafragam hydel projects respectively.
    Unfortunately the plant is yet to be made functional. There was bursting of sluice valve earlier but replaced and the complaint of heavy leakage of pipes in many places is bogus, asserts the source.
    Power JE Y N Pathak informed that the powerhouse here receives only 30 to 40 KW from Dhuranalah MHS, which was meager and posing challenge in power distribution besides inviting public wrath.
    Though 33 KV power is drawn from Kothaljuri in Assam but during peak summer the power demands goes too high. The breakers, transformers, live wire gets snagged at various locations disrupting the normal power supply.
    "We don‚Ä(TM)t have any option to upgrade the present power line to draw 4 MW of power from Assam as discussed with Assam counterpart to revamp the power scenario in Lohit, which is a costly affair," the JE said.
    However, local MLA Dr Mohesh Chai in the recently concluded Assembly session had raised the chronic power scenario of Lohit and the non-functioning of both projects. But Chief Minister Nabam Tuki had assured to look in this matter to restore power supply by taking up with the power developers soon.
