Itagar, Jan 27: The All Aruchal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) on Wednesday termed the decision of the Centre for invoking President Rule in the state as ‘arbitrary’ and threatened launching rigorous democratic movement across the state if the order is not revoked immediately.
“We cannot accept such a ‘haste’ decision of the central government without verifying the facts and will oppose tooth and il,” AAPSU President Kamta Lapung said in a statement.
While dismissing any breakdown of law and order in the state, Lapung claimed that staging dhar and protest rallies in the state capital did not amount to deterioration in law and order situation which, prompted the governor to recommend for promulgation of Article 356 (1) in the peaceful state.
The apex students’ body of the state also alleged Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju of engineering a conspiracy to topple the democratically elected government.
“This is a conspiracy hatched by Rijiju with the objective of installing a BJP government in the state,” Lapung alleged.
“We will go for rigorous mass democratic movement throughout the state to protest imposition of Central Rule in the state if the Centre did not revoke its decision immediately,” he added.
