IN a setback to the Congress party, the Supreme Court Tuesday refused its plea to restrain Arunachal Pradesh Governor J P Rajkhowa from allowing the formation of a new government in the state after revocation of the President’s Rule.

A Constitution Bench led by Justice J S Khehar also declined the prayer of Congress leaders that “status quo” be maintained in the crisis-hit state so that no new government formation is permitted till the apex court decides on the batch of petitions against various orders issued by the Governor, including his recommendation for the proclamation of emergency.

“We have heard your arguments on injunction. We don’t propose to pass any order and we will hear the matter on merits,” said the bench.
