ITANAGAR, Nov 6 - The political impasse over the leadership issue in Arunachal Pradesh has further deepened with a group of 21 Congress legislators including six former Ministers led by senior leader Kalikho Pul today openly revolting against CM Nabam Tuki.
They informed that they wouldn�t attend the CLP meeting convened by Tuki on November 8, claiming �any meeting called under his leadership do not carry any substance.�
It was reported that a Congress Legislature Party (CLP) meeting will be held at 4.30 pm on Sunday next at Rajiv Gandhi Bhavan here and accordingly, the party leadership had asked all CLP members �to attend the meeting without fail.�
�We clearly denounce his legitimacy as leader of Congress Legislature Party of Arunachal Pradesh. He has lost all moral credibility to lead the party in the House,� the dissident MLAs said in a joint signed statement here today, adding that they have �unanimously decided not to attend the CLP meeting called under the leadership of Nabam Tuki�.
The delicate political situation in the State today received yet another �blow� with the seniormost MLA in the 60-member House from Pakke-Kessang, Kameng Dolo resigning from the twin posts of Principal Advisor to CM and Chairman of SCITeG (State Council for IT and e-Governance).
��Of late, there appears to be a trust deficit between us besides ideological difference for reasons best known to you, which ultimately resulted into present state of instability in our State under your leadership,� Dolo wrote in his resignation letter to the CM.
