The opposition Congress has decided to challenge the Union Cabinet’s recommendation for imposing the President’s rule in Arunachal Pradesh in a court of law, if the proposition is approved by President Pranab Mukherjee.
“If this information is correct, I’m afraid it is an very unfortunate political step this government is taking,” Congress leader Kapil Sibal said including that the Congress will challenge the matter in court.
“This government realizes that it has no dominant part in Rajya Sabha and that this specific suggestion can never pass since it is politally spurred,” Sibal said.
President’s Rule in Arunachal Pradesh
The Union Cabinet on Sunday has prescribed imposition of President’s Rule in Arunachal Pradesh, which is confronting a political turmoil.
Arunachal Pradesh was shaken by a political cricis on December 16 a year ago as 21 agitator Congress MLAs joined hands with 11 of BJP and two independents to “impeach” get together speaker Nabam Rebia at an alternative venue, in a move marked as “illegal and unconstitutional” by the speaker.
