In present date restoration of the Congress government back in the State is likely a massive blow to BJP led centre government. Both being the rivalry from ages, Congress Supremo congratulated Tuki and his team member. Stating as a victory of the democracy and also explaining the PM the real meaning of it. This makes opposition ruling in two major states as of now, Arunachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
The panel comprising five-judge belonging to apex court went unanimously in setting aside the governor’s order. The decision cleared the status quo in the northeastern state giving a fair verdict. They deliberated on the legality of the incumbent of the opposition. It also played on the fact that whether the governor had the power to call a special session of the assembly without the consent of the cabinet.
Tuki government complained regarding central party’s alleged swearing in so as to bring governance in its name but Supreme Court was revising its decision gave the nod in favour of Congress led governance in Arunachal Pradesh.
