‘Civil society bodies, NGOs should play positive roles’

ITANAGAR, Aug 26: Papum Pare Superintendent of Police Tumme Amo urged civil society bodies and NGOs to play a positive role in taking the state to newer heights.
“There are various issues in which NGOs can assist the authorities, such as traffic problems, domestic violence, crime awareness, etc,” Amo said during an event organised here by Itanagar-based NGO Being Arunachalee on Saturday.
Also participating in the event, Arunachal Pradesh State AIDS Control Society deputy director Tasor Pali expressed concern over how NGOs are formed with the motive of harassing individuals and government departments.
“Lots of NGOs are formed to seek donations from departments and individuals. Also, several of them are formed to harass government departments and officials by misusing the RTI Act,” he said.
He expressed hope that Being Arunachalee would sincerely work for the benefit of the people of state and change the work culture of NGOs.
Being Arunachalee president Ringu Kuku in his address informed that Being Arunachalee is a non-political organization and would “silently work to serve the society.”
Education Under-secretary Likha Tejji and Being Arunachalee secretary Techi Tara also spoke.
