Congress, BJP lock horns over Arunachal Pradesh row
New Delhi, Jan 27 (ANI): Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit on Wednesday lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party for the political crisis in Arunachal Pradesh. 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 accused BJP chief Amit Shah of political crisis in Arunachal Pradesh. Echoing similar sentiments, Congress legal cell head KC Mittal said the imposition of President rule in Arunachal Pradesh is totally uncalled for. 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. He said the state government was taking cognizance of the matter and they are taking it seriously.
