Itagar, March 1: The Aruchal Elite Forum (AEF) has alleged that the intention of state governor J P Rajkhowa in recommending President Rule in Aruchal was to install Chief Minister Kalikho Pul.
Addressing reporters here, the forum’s Chairman Taba Taku termed the imposition of PR in state unnecessary, uncalled for and politically motivated with intention to install Kalikho Pul as Chief Minister by the Governor.
While questioning the Governor’s intention Taku said Governor who was supposed to be neutral body has deprived former Chief Minister’s right, citing the way Raj Bhavan invited Pul to form government when the judgment is yet to be pronounced by the Supreme Court.
Referring S R Bommai case Vs State of India, he said moment PR is lifted as per the constitutiol provision former CM bam Tuki should have been given opportunity for floor test to prove his majority. However, the governor overlooked it, he added. Taba maintained that he is supporting neither of the groups and is only stating constitutiol facts.
The forum also questioned presence of paramilitary forces at Capital Complex even after PR rule lifted from the state.
“Presence of huge number of paramilitary forces in Capital Complex would rather cost heavy loss to the state exchequer” the chairman added.
