Congress failed to protect Constitution in Arunachal: BJP

New Delhi, Jan 25 (IANS) The BJP on Monday accused the Congress of having failed to protect the constitution in Arunachal Pradesh and said the ruling party in the state has lost the constitutional authority to remain in power.

“Politically, this is an internal matter of the Congress and constitutionally, in either of the way in which the decision is pending in the Supreme Court, they have lost the constitutional authority to be in the government in Arunachal Pradesh,” BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi told reporters.

“And morally, I would like to ask one question — Why are you (Congress) running away from calling the house and proving majority or going for a floor test?”

“In fact, you are not able to convene your own legislative party meeting itself,” he added.

The BJP leader also accused the Congress of misleading the nation over the issue.

“They will reach the Supreme Court. They will reach the President but they will not convene the (assembly) session and not even the legislature party meeting. The Congress should refrain from making political statements as the case is pending before the constitutional bench of the Supreme Court,” he said.

Trivedi said that constitutionally, there was a provision that any government cannot remain in power if it is not able to conduct the next session of the assembly within six months after the conclusion of the previous session.

“The previous session of the Arunachal Pradesh assembly ended on July 21, and a session must be convened before January 21,” he said.
