Government is strong enough to continue: Tuki
FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT
Itagar, Dec 29: “Our government is in majority, strong enough to continue to serve the people,” said Chief Minister bam Tuki while addressing the 131st foundation day of the Congress at Rajiv Gandhi Bhawan here on Monday.
Tuki said that the people and leaders of the state were taken for granted that led to holding of special Assembly session recently in total violation of the constitution.
“This had never happened in the history of India and it has tarnished the image of the peace-loving tribal people of the border state. People are still with us as we have been working for their all-round development,” the chief minister asserted.
“How can they play with the sentiments of the masses in the me of democracy? Be on guard. We would not allow any move to weaken the party and the government,” he added.
Further stating that pending government bills can only be taken under the Article 375 of the Constitution and not by holding a Assembly session to impeach the sitting speaker, Tuki concluded by giving a clarion call “Gaonki ore chalo” to have direct communication with the people at the grassroots and assess what we have achieved and what the people expect.
APCC President Padi Richo in his speech while cautioning the party workers and leaders that many negative forces were posing threat to the party and government further exhorted everyone to remain alert and work with commitment following Congress’s ideology to defeat all such forces.
Ministers Takam Pario and Tirong Aboh, Parliamentary Secretaries Likha Saaya, Bamang Felix, Nikh Kamin, Karya Bagang, APCC Vice President T C Tok and former ministers and MLAs were also present on the occasion, a party release said here today.
