New Delhi : Extremely disappointed with the Centre’s move to recommend President’s rule in Arunachal Pradesh, Chief Minister Nabam Tuki will be meeting Congress president Sonia Gandhi and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi here this afternoon.
Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh will be meeting President Pranab Mukherjee today to put forth the government’s view this regard.
A Congress delegation led by Sonia Gandhi is likely to meet the President later today to express their concern over the government’s stand.
The Congress had earlier dubbed the government’s move to recommend President’s rule as ‘unconstitutional’ and alleged that it exposed the dictatorial tendencies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The Union Cabinet yesterday recommended President’s rule in Arunachal Pradesh. The recommendation has been sent to President Pranab Mukherjee for his approval.
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)
