New Delhi, July 14: In the wake of the Supreme Court judgement quashing all decisions of the Arunachal Pradesh Governor which had precipitated its fall in December last, Former Arunachal Pradesh's Congress Chief Minister Nabam Tuki on Wednesday assumed charge as the Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh in Arunachal Bhavan at New Delhi. In a tweet Tuki said he will serve the people of the state with utmost sincerity in the coming days. He also informed, about resumption of his duties to acting Governor of Arunachal Pradesh Tathagata Roy."On the basis of Supreme Court's Judgement, I assumed my Duty today and going back tomorrow to Arunachal Pradesh to meet people over there and do developmental activities in the state," he told media. Tuki will reach Itanagar today and will convene a meeting of his Council of Ministers. He will also convene a meeting of the Congress Legislature Party.
Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi said the Nabam Tuki led government will be restored in Arunachal Pradesh. He told AIR that the Apex Court decision in this regard will be implemented. Rohatgi said the state Governor will complete all the formalities to re-install the Tuki government.
The Supreme Court yesterday ordered the restoration of the Nabam Tuki government in Arunachal Pradesh. A five-judge constitution bench pronounced the verdict on a bunch of petitions dealing with discretionary powers of Governor Jyoti Prasad Rajkhowa to summon or advance the Assembly session. Stating the governor's direction on conducting assembly proceedings is unconstitutional, the apex court set aside all steps and decision taken by the legislative assembly pursuant to the governor's December 9th last year order and said they are unsustainable.
