ITANAGAR, Dec 20 - Expressing their apprehensions on the sequence of events arising out of the present political turmoil in the State, a conglomeration of a dozen organizations including the All Arunachal Pradesh Border Students Union, the Arunachal Students Federation, the Nyishi Youth Welfare Association, the Arunachal Youth Organisation, the All Galo Youth Organisation and the Save Arunachal Youth Association under the banner of Joint Core Committee (JCC) demanded imposition of President�s Rule in Arunachal Pradesh citing the �constitutional crisis� in the State.
The JCC also served a four-day ultimatum for suspension of state Chief Secretary Ramesh Negi, Director General of Police S Nithianandam, Itanagar Capital Complex DM Mige Kamki and SP Devendra Arya for allegedly �obeying illegal order� and �allowing law and order breakdown at the behest of Home Minister Tanga Byaling�.
Addressing mediapersons here yesterday, the JCC leaders were particularly critical of the DM and the Home Minister, who they alleged �orchestrated the lock down of the Legislative Assembly premises and also deliberately removed the paramilitary forces from the blockade area at Papu Nallah to help Congress workers to carry out their road blockade�.
It claimed all these unlawful activities took place on December 17 few hours after 33 legislators, including 20 dissident Congress members, 11 from BJP and two Independents, passed the �no-confidence� motion against CM Nabam Tuki-led Congress government and chose rebel leader Kalikho Pul as �new leader of the House�.
It also alleged that the �Home Minister aided and instigated the Congress workers to block the roads and also allowed the mob to demean the sanctity of the Raj Bhawan by feasting around its premises by slaughtering a �mithun� and accordingly, rendering the law enforcing agencies as mute spectators in the whole episode.�
Citing �breakdown� of constitutional order in the State, the JCC members demanded imposition of President�s Rule failing which, they said they would go for an indefinite bandh call in the state capital.
