ITANAGAR, Nov 5 - The State BJP today made a strong plea to Governor Jyoti Prasad Rajkhowa �to hold back Nabam Tuki-led Congress Government from taking major financial decisions�, claiming that Tuki Govt �has been reduced to minority and the administration has virtually collapsed.�
The Opposition BJP, which has 11 members in the State Assembly, further demanded that the Tuki Government should be asked to go for a floor test to prove its majority.
�It is now an open chapter that majority of the Congress MLAs are no more with this government and they are not a part of the government administration and have been outside the State since a long time,� the BJP alleged in an e-mailed statement here last evening.
In support of its demand for restraining government from major decisions on financial matters, the BJP claimed: �It has been reported that despite of the Supreme Court staying execution order worth Rs 326 crore against the Arunachal Pradesh Govt over payments to foodgrain transporters in 2014, the Congress Govt has paid Rs 450 crore and recently Rs 35 crore. And another Rs 65 crore is under process for payment to the PDS contractors,� it maintained.
�The Raj Bhawan is urged to initiate appropriate measures at the earliest to protect draining of development funds, as the minority government is likely to divert huge funds for illegal payments and indulge in horse trading to save their government,� the Opposition BJP added.
