Arunachalis urged to prove their mettle

New Delhi, July 14 (ANI): Senior Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer Tajom Taloh exhorted Arunachali students pursuing higher education in the National Capital Territory of Delhi to be disciplined, committed and dedicated to prove their mettle.

"The situation is totally different here and poises tough challenges for Arunachalis," he cautioned, while addressing the maiden Arunachali-Delhi get together at the 8, Feroz Shah Road residence of Lok Sabha Member Takam Sanjoy here on Saturday evening.

Thanking Sanjoy for creating the platform as a true people's representative, Taloh urged fellow officers to extend all possible help to gen-next Arunachalis in fulfilling their dreams.

"The get together is a great opportunity for Arunachali officers who are working in various capacities and students pursuing higher education in various institutions to know each other and extend help whenever needed, said Taloh, presently serving as secretary with the NCT administration.

His caution to young students was with due earnest for the reason that the people from North East have been facing numerous problems in Delhi, forcing the Delhi Police to take numerous measures for their safety and security.

In fact, Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki, who was the chief guest at the event, felicitated Joint Commissioner of Police (Training) Robin Hibu, Dr. Millo Tabin, Associate Professor (Forensic), AIIMS, Marto Bagra, Assistant Resident Commissioner, Arunachal Bhawan and J T Tagam, a PG student of Delhi University, on behalf of the MP.

The recognition with a memento, citation and scarf was for going out of their way to serve fellow brethren.

Hibu, as coordinator for safety and security of north east people, facilitated the appointment and training of 37 representatives from eight north east states to serve as the eyes and ears for their people in Delhi and for empanelling senior journalist from Arunachal, Pradeep Kumar, as resource person as per Ministry of Home Affairs directive to sensitise Delhi Police on north east issues and problems.

Dr. Millo was felicitated for extending health services, while Marto was felicitated for being a local guardian to Arunachal students. Tagam was felicitated for his philanthropic service as a student.

"We Arunachalis are proud of ourselves and have been contributing to nation building. We should continue to do so with greater vigour for the cause of our state and people that would amount to serve the nation", Sanjoy told the gathering.

Besides the chief minister, Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee president and Rajya Sabha member Mukut Mithi, Arunachal Pradesh Finance Minister Chowna Mein, Food and Civil Supplies Minister Kamlung Mossang, legislators, senior IAS, IPS officers, doctors and a battery of media persons, including Kumar were present.

The meet aimed at promoting spirit-de-corps amongst Arunachalis living in Delhi and to share ideas, the MP added.

There are seven IAS and four IPS Arunachali officers, the highest from North East India, who are posted in the national capital at present, informed Toko Meena, who is pursuing a doctorate in education from Delhi University.

A cultural programme and traditional dinner with tribal delicacies made of fresh ingredients from Arunachal were part of the meet. By Pradeep Kumar (ANI)
