Patna, Jan.26 (ANI): Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday said it would be ‘disastrous’ to impose President’s rule in Arunachal Pradesh.
He also hit out at the Centre over its recommendation, saying that it was unable to tolerate the state government of other parties and that’s why it was making such a move.
“It is disastrous to impose President’s rule in Arunachal Pradesh. It is a symbol that the people at the Centre are not able to tolerate the state government of other parties. It is a wrong step taken by the Centre,” Nitish Kumar said.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh had on Sunday met President Pranab Mukherjee at Rashtrapati Bhavan to apprise him about the decision of the Union Cabinet to recommend imposition of central rule in Arunachal Pradesh.
Meanwhile, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi has said that the grand old party will fight this ‘attack on the Constitution and the people’s mandate’.
Arunachal Pradesh was rocked by a political crisis on December 16 last year as 21 rebel Congress MLAs joined hands with BJP’s 11 MLAs and two independents to impeach Assembly Speaker Nabam Rebia at a makeshift venue.
The Speaker termed the move as illegal and unconstitutional. (ANI)
