President’s rule in Arunachal ‘against Constitution’: AAP 

New Delhi, Jan 25 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said the union cabinet recommendation for imposing President’s rule in Arunachal Pradesh, suspending an elected government, was “against the Constitution”.

“Constitution doesn’t allow you to suspend an elected government and enforce the President’s rule in any state. It is against the Constitution,” the Aam Aadmi Party chief told media here.

Kejriwal earlier termed the union cabinet’s recommendation of President’s rule in Arunachal as “murder of Constitution on the eve of Republic Day”.

Speaking at an event organised by the Delhi government to celebrate the Republic Day, he also sought the central government’s cooperation in the functioning of the Delhi government.

“Central government is like an elder brother, whereas state governments are younger brothers. He (Central government) should not trouble its younger brother (state government),” Kejriwal said.

“We need central government’s cooperation for proper development and functioning. With its cooperation, the development would be ten fold,” he said.

“Instead of troubling us with CBI raids and President’s rule, the Centre should support us,” he added.

Kejriwal said the constitution talks about justice, liberty and equality, but “it seems that there are several flaws in its proper implementation”.

Talking about Dalit doctoral scholar Rohit Vemulla’s suicide at the Hyderabad University, Kejriwal said, “A central minister called the authorities in the university and pressurised them to suspend Rohit and his friends”.

“The central minister declared the students who were following the path shown by Dr B.R. Ambedkar as anti-national, which is wrong,” he added.

“The poor Dalit boy should have been promoted and appreciated instead of creating an environment that forced him to suicide,” Kejriwal said.
