SC to hear plea over imposition of President’s rule in Arunachal Pradesh

New Delhi: The Supreme Court agreed to hear at 2 pm today the plea of Congress against imposition of President’s rule in Arunachal Pradesh.
Earlier last night, President Pranab Mukherjee endorsed the Union Cabinet’s decision and brought Arunachal Pradesh under central rule after more than a month of political turmoil and in the midst of a raging battle in the Supreme Court, a decision that was attacked by Congress and other parties which called it ‘murder’ of democracy.

After intense consultations over the last two days, Mukherjee signed the proclamation imposing the central rule, accepting the ground that there was a constitutional breakdown in the state.

The President, who had called Home Minister Rajnath Singh yesterday and raised some queries with him on the urgency of bringing the state under central rule, was apparently satisfied with the government’s view that there was a breakdown of the constitutional machinery following the political instability.
