BJP misusing Arunachal governor to fulfill their ulterior motives: Congress


New Delhi:  The Congress on Tuesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP chief Amit Shah and the RSS of attempting to murder democracy in Arunachal Pradesh by seeking to dislodge the party’s government and charged Arunachal Pradesh governor with misusing his position.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the BJP and the RSS in criminal collusion with crony industrial houses is attempting to murder democracy and the constitution of India by subverting the mandate of people of Arunachal Pradesh who elected a Congress government in May 2014 with a four-fifth majority.

It said the “dangerous game” involves “horse trading of MLAs, blatant allurement and threats” and subversion of constitutional provision and procedures.

Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Kiran Rijiju, and Ram Madhav are bent on unconstitutionally toppling the elected Congress government of Arunachal Pradesh.

The statement said that the BJP had “crudely pressurised” the state governor Jyoti Prasad Rajkhowa and the governor had “unconstitutionally made himself a willing tool for partisan and ulterior motives”.

Noting some dissident Congress legislators were lured by the Bharatiya Janata Party to topple the government in the state, the party said that governor had to act on the advice of the council of ministers but was playing a “hideous game”.

It said that the assembly was to meet on January 14 but the governor “acting brazenly in an unconstitutional manner on the dictates of the central government and state BJP unit” issued an order for summoning the session on December 16 without the knowledge of Chief Minister Nabam Tuki.

The governor has no powers to summon the assembly session without a proper cabinet decision. The governor has also set the agenda of the assembly session for which he has no authority,

It said that the governor had directed the removal of Speaker should be the first item at the first sitting of the assembly, the Deputy Speaker should preside over the first sitting and the issue of removal should be completed on the first sitting itself calling it a “clear case of abuse of office”.

The order of the governor sending a message to summon the assembly without the recommendation of the cabinet is illegal and unconstitutional,” it said, adding the actions were also in violation of Supreme Court decisions.

Accusing Modi of “double speak”, the party said it would fight the “attempt to murder democracy and the constitution tooth and nail” in the courts, parliament and on the streets.

At the party’s official briefing, party’s spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi said Modi should apologise for the “unpardonable assault on federalism”. (IANS)

Arunachal Pradesh, July 1, 2017: India is a land of many tribes which forms its rich cultural heritage. One such tribe is Apatanis also known as Tanw, which lives in Ziro valley in the Lower Subansiri district of Arunachal Pradesh in India.

This tribe is famous for their colorful culture with various festivals, vibrant traditional village councils detailed and complex handloom designs and cane and bamboo crafts skill. They reside in very basic bamboo huts resting on top of vertical wooden stilts.  The Apatanis worships nature by praying sun and moon. Apatanis are also known for their distinctive way of sustainable farming and social forestry.

The Apatanis women are believed to be the exceptional beauty in Arunachal Pradesh.  With their beauty, arrived a danger of theft of apatanis women by neighboring tribes.

Majority of women on the earth are considered to be delicate pieces of physical beauty. The outer beauty is not seen as a blessing of god but the parameter on which the girl is admired, adorned or loved. No matter, how beautiful a woman is but the beautiful looks always wins in captivating the eye. People are more tempted by what they see than what they feel.

Beauty is a positive term that is why it attracts people. Especially, if we talk of outer beauty, the desire of it makes people cross their limits and restore to wrong practices.

Rape, sexual assault, kidnapping and forceful marriage are some examples of these wrongful deeds. A lady finds variety of ways to protect herself from the cruel world. Some learn self defense, some keep weapons, some don’t go out alone in night, some keep pepper spray and  some employ special bodyguards to  save themselves.

But, these tribal women found the solution in killing the root of the problem itself. Their pretty faces were very appealing to the neighbor tribes which lead to kidnapping of these women.

They altered their faces by inserting huge nose plugs and tattooing their faces in order to safeguard their lives. Their decision showed their bravery of letting go their outer beauty.  They preferred a life without beauty instead of physical beauty because their life was very much more than physical beauty to them.

The older women of tribe can still be spotted with inked faces and nose plugs. The further inserting of nose plugs and inking of faces have been banned by government.

The beauty they portrayed by disregarding their face appearance was beyond words. But on the other hand, hurting oneself just for getting secured is not a good choice. Will you spoil your face by the fear of getting raped; will you hurt yourself so much and make your outer skin ugly to protect yourselves from all the evil crimes of outer beauty?
