Arunachal Govt functioning effectively: Tuki

By The Assam Tribune

ITANAGAR, Nov 2 - Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki on Saturday said the Congress Government in the State was �strong and functioning effectively� and those quitting it were not interested to serve the people.

�Congress, being a grassroots level party, has the mandate of the people by winning 42 seats in the last Assembly elections,� the Chief Minister said in reply to a question on the present political situation in the wake of the resignation of two Congress MLAs on October 5, subsequently stayed by the High Court and two chairmen of State-run corporations putting in their papers.

�The government is functioning effectively and those quitting are not interested to serve the people...Their decisions are against the people and make no difference. �There is no dearth of capable people who are in the queue,� he said making a dig at those who have resigned.

�Any internal Congress matter can�t be discussed in public and BJP has no business to interfere in matters of Congress which they have been doing repeatedly,� Tuki told reporters here after the celebration of Rashtriya Sanklap Diwas yesterday.

The Chief Minister was flanked by Legal Metrology, Consumer Affairs, Food & Civil Supplies Minister Tirong Aboh and APCC president Padi Richo. Responding to questions on Chakma-Hajong refugee imbroglio, the CM said the September 17 Supreme Court directive to grant citizenship to the refugees was �shocking.�

�The State Government has already filed a review petition in the Supreme Court and I have called on the Prime Minister and Union Home Minister seeking help in this regard.

�The issue has been prolonging for the last 52 years and all efforts to find an amicable solution is yet to yield result,� Tuki said, adding that it�s not the time for blame game but to stand united for the welfare of the State�s people. � PTI
