ITANAGAR, Dec 18 - Stunned by the Gauhati High Court�s stay order on his preponing the summoning of the Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly by a month and all other proceedings conducted during the preponed session, the State Governor JP Rajkhowa has decided to appeal against the Court order, saying �an opportunity was not given to him to defend his orders�.

A press note from Raj Bhavan here last night said that the Governor was surprised to know that a single judge bench of the Gauhati High Court had issued an order staying the order of the Governor dated December 9 preponing the summoning of the Assembly session from January 14, 2016 to December 16 under Article 174(1) of the Constitution of India and also other proceedings, including removal of Speaker Nabam Rebia by a resolution of 33 MLAs, and asking for maintaining status quo ante.

He added that the proceedings had taken place much earlier and a no-confidence motion against the Council of Ministers, led by Chief Minister Nabam Tuki, also passed well ahead of the order passed by the single judge bench, which reportedly took place much later yesterday.
