ITAGAR, Dec 30: Backing its leadership at the Centre, the State BJP today rejected the allegations of the ruling Congress on possible role of party’s central leadership including MoS for Home Kiren Rijiju in instigating the political turmoil in the State.
“How long the people of the State will be kept in dark and fooled by the ruling Congress in their factiol feuds, which is nothing new in the State. The BJP which is a lone opposition party in the State has rightfully played its part as a constructive and responsible opposition in the aftermath of long standing political stalemate in the ruling Congress,” party Spokesperson Techi Necha said in a statement here.
“The State has witnessed dramatic turn of open rivalries since December 24 last year which resulted after dropping of a senior Congress minister, Kalikho Pul from the bam Tuki Government and series of events leading to December 17 this year. The BJP has taken right step to demand the bam Tuki government to prove its strength in the State Assembly rather than becoming media stunt over the strength of the ruling party and the various development funds draining at the hand of a few,” he added.
Stating that it was due to the forceful Maha Sigture Dinner the numbers in the State assembly against Chief Minister bam Tuki and Speaker bam Rebia turned 34 out of the 60 member house and a government only survives having the confidence of at least 31 MLAs out of 60 in parliamentary democracy, the opposition party asserted that it has become logical that bam Tuki Government was reduced to minority in number, and in such a situation it necessary that the incumbent government must seek confidence of the Assembly, which is mandatory.
“Under such political turmoil, 11 BJP MLAs with 02 IND MLAs jointly moved impeachment motion for removal of the Speaker as per the constitutiol provision, and the State governor has also to act on his part for the well-being of the people and the State. Every incidents and political turns taken place in the ruling Congress has been open before the people of the State. But surprisingly the Congress central leaderships have maintained stoic silence,” Necha stated.
“The dissident MLAs were also kept waiting for three months when they sought appointment with AICC President Sonia Gandhi and Vice President Rahul Gandhi which has established how the AICC has been step-motherly treating the State Congress leaders and their MLAs. So here the BJP has nothing to do with but we cannot remain silent on the sufferings of the people of the State and accordingly the MLAs moved the required democratic steps for the public interest,” he added.
