The Supreme Court on Wednesday restored Congress government in Arunachal Pradesh after quashing the President’s Rule.

A five-judge Constitution Bench, in an unanimous and unprecedented verdict, quashed all the decisions of the Governor that had led to imposition of the President’s Rule in the state, calling his actions as “illegal” and violative of the Constitutional provisions.
