Supreme Court restores Congress government in Arunachal Pradesh

The Supreme Court on Wednesday restored the government in Arunachal Pradesh and quashed all the orders given out by the state’s governor since December 15, 2015.  A five-judge Constitution Bench, in an unanimous and unprecedented verdict, quashed all the decisions of the Governor that had led to imposition of the President’s Rule in the state, calling his actions as “illegal” and violative of the Constitutional provisions. The apex court was hearing a petition on dealing with discretionary powers of the Governor to summon or advance Assembly sessions in the state. Governor JP Rajkhowa had earlier advanced the Winter Session of the Assembly without consulting the then chief minister, Nabam Tuki. Rebel Congress lawmakers sought to impeach the Speaker at a makeshift venue.
This is the first order by the Supreme Court reinstating a government in a state even after it had been replaced by a new government. Nabam Tuki, reaction to the decision, said: “the court has saved the country and constitution. We have got justice.”
