He said that it is a “murder of constitution and democracy”. He said the duly elected government was not disturbed for many years, but as BJP came into power, it “gave money and destabilised” the state government.

He added that when the matter was in the Supreme Court, then the Centre should have not interfered. Mittal believed that this is not a constitutional crisis and has been totally made up. BJP leader Siddharthnath Singh, on the other hand, said the Congress just wanted to politicise each and every matter.
