Truce worked out between Gamlin and Tuki

By SPL CORRESPONDENT

NEW DELHI, Oct 15 � The Congress High Command on Saturday managed to work out a temporary truce between the two warring factions in Arunachal Pradesh. A team of party observers is now likely to leave for Itanagar in a week�s time.

A final decision is likely at a meeting of the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) in Itanagar.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi met Chief Minister Jarbom Gamlin and PCC president Nabam Tuki this morning and asked both the leaders to give in writing, stating that whatever decision the Party takes would be acceptable to them. The meeting was also joined by Union Power Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, former Union Minister Bijoy Krishna Handique and Secretary in-charge Dhaniram Shandil.

Sources said the Congress president summoned both Chief Minister and Tuki to 10 Jan Path for a meeting before asking them to give a written undertaking. The team of observers later separately held discussions with the Congress president and decided to leave for Arunachal Pradesh in five-six days� time.

As reported, both the leaders have been asked to head back to the State along with their supporters including the MLAs. They are likely to leave for Arunachal Pradesh in a day or two, said sources.

Taking a serious view of the developments in the State, both the leaders were yesterday pulled up by Political secretary to Congress president, Ahmed Patel on Friday.

Meanwhile, talking to newsmen, a grim-looking Chief Minister said that the leadership issue did not figure in the meeting today.

Both Tuki and Gamlin reiterated that whatever decision the Party president takes would be final and acceptable to them.

According to sources, the observers have started talking to the MLAs, who were camping in the capital and once they reach Itanagar they would re-start the process and gauge their mood before taking a final call. A meeting of the Congress Legislature Party is going to be convened, where a final decision on the leadership issue is likely to be taken, said sources.

Both the camps, meanwhile, have been claiming support of majority of MLAs, though AICC is not buying their claim, said sources.
