Itanagar, Feb. 19 (ANI): A day after the Supreme Court gave the clearance for a new government in the state, President’s rule was lifted from Arunachal Pradesh on Friday.
The revocation of President’s Rule will allow formation of a new government in the border state.
The Union cabinet had on Wednesday decided to recommend revocation of President’s rule in the state but within hours the Supreme Court ordered that status quo be maintained till it examined records on the disqualification of the 14 rebel MLAs.
The revolt by Congress rebels led to a political crisis in the state that finally led to imposition of President’s Rule on January 26. (ANI)
