New Delhi, Jan. 26 (ANI): The Janata Dal (United) on Tuesday termed the President’s rule in Arunachal Pradesh as ‘black day’ for India and added that it is against the spirit of cooperative federalism.
“This is a black day for Republic of India on Republic Day. This is against the spirit of cooperative federalism. It is a threatening signal for the future and also for the regional parties. We appeal to all the non-BJP parties to raise this question,” JD (U) leader K.C. Tyagi told ANI.
President Pranab Mukherjee on Tuesday gave nod to imposition of centre rule in Arunachal Pradesh.
Former Arunachal Pradesh chief minister Nabam Tuki slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led at the Centre for imposing President’s rule in the state and vowed to knock the doors of the Supreme Court in this matter.
“Had a feeling they will do this as this was their intention. But we aren’t nervous, we will fight… We will fight this battle legally…We will seek justice from Supreme Court,” Tuki told ANI.
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)
