ITANAGAR, Sept 15 - Picking former Governor JP Rajkhowa�s statement that he has not recommended President�s Rule in the State, Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) on Wednesday alleged the sacked Governor�s avowal makes it clear that the entire episode of President�s Rule has been masterminded by Modi Government going beyond the Constitution of India just to topple the duly elected Congress Government in the State.
�Rajkhowa became a scapegoat only because of misdeeds of BJP,� alleged APCC president Padi Richo here. �Rajkhowa succumbed to pressure tactics of �double-standard� BJP party and when they failed to install a BJP Govt in the State, they blamed and sacked Rajkhowa as Governor of Arunachal Pradesh to hide their own misdeeds�, he said.
�And, all the episodes of political instability of the govt have been created by few BJP leaders from Arunachal Pradesh who misguided Central leaders and Rajkhowa, who became a scapegoat,� Richo alleged.
He warned, in coming elections in few States, BJP will have to pay heavily for its alleged role in political upheaval in Arunachal Pradesh.
