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)
