Congress submits memo to Home Minister, demands inquiry commission
‘Dismiss Pema Khandu Government’
New Delhi: The Congress on Monday submitted a memorandum to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and demanded immediate dismissal of the Pema Khandu government in Arunachal Pradesh.
Accusing the State Government for its alleged failure in tackling the law and order situation of the State, former Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Nabam Tuki said that there has been a “total mismanagement” by the State Government in handling the protests. A recent move by the State Government to grant Permanent Resident Certificates (PRC) to six communities in the State has led to the present unrest.
“The loss of human lives and damages to properties of such magnitude which the State has never witnessed in its history,” the memorandum said.
The memorandum was signed by Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee president Takam Sanjoy, former Chief Minister Nabam Tuki and Congress general secretary (in-charge of Northeast) Luizinho Faleiro.
The Congress party also demanded setting up of a commission of inquiry. “The inquiry commission should be headed by a sitting High Court judge or a retired Chief Justice of a High Court,” said Tuki. The Congress leaders through its memorandum also sought immediate sacking of Chief Minister Pema Khandu, Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein and Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju, who hails from the State.
