New Delhi, Jan. 26 (ANI) Former Arunachal chief minister Nabam Tuki, who met senior Congress leader and lawyer Kapil Sibal after President’s rule was imposed in the state, on Tuesday, put the onus on Supreme Court to decide the matter.
Tuki further refused to rule out possibility of talking to rebel Congress leaders in the state, who are behind toppling his government.
“The matter is coming in the Supreme Court tomorrow. I have consulted my legal counsel they will take up the matter in Supreme Court,” Tuki told reporters after meeting Sibal.
Tuki had earlier in the day slammed the Centre for imposing President’s rule and vowed to knock the doors of the Supreme Court in this matter.
President Pranab Mukherjee earlier in the day gave nod to imposition of centre rule in Arunachal Pradesh. The Union Cabinet had yesterday recommended President’s rule in the state.
The Congress Party has, however, dubbed the government’s move as ‘unconstitutional’ and alleged that it exposed the dictatorial tendencies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his people.
Earlier today, the Centre said that it was their ‘constitutional right and responsibility’ to end the crisis created by the Congress in the state.
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)
