New Delhi, Jan. 27 (ANI): With the Supreme Court (SC) seeking the Centre’s explanation over the imposition of President’s rule in Arunachal Pradesh following a Congress’ plea that challenged the Union Cabinet’s decision, former chief minister Nabam Tuki on Wednesday said he has full faith in the apex court and will abide by any decision taken by it.
“Have full faith in judiciary. We’ll abide by SC’s decision. I trust Supreme Court and I am confident court will take the right decision,” Tuki told media persons here.
Samir Malik, a lawyer representing the Congress party, said the Supreme Court has asked for a report on the basis of which the proclamation was issued to be tabled today.
“Court has issued notices to Centre & Governor, they have to file their response by Friday and court directed that date of report on basis of which this proclamation was issued, be given to us during course of the day.. Governor and Centre are to place report in a sealed envelope before court at earliest,” he said.
Supreme Court earlier in the day issued notice to the Centre to file reply by January 29.
The apex court has scheduled the next date of hearing for February 1.
Hearing the plea filed by Arunachal Pradesh Assembly Speaker and the Congress Party, the apex court expressed its displeasure to Governor Rajkhowa as to why the Supreme Court was not informed about the developments in the state.
President Pranab Mukherjee yesterday gave his assent to the Union Cabinet’s recommendation for imposition of President’s rule in Arunachal after being satisfied that the law and order in the border state was sensitive.
The Congress, which is determined to stall the ratification of President’s rule in the state, is mulling both legal and political options to fight the same. The decision in this regard was taken at a meeting yesterday. (ANI)
