New Delhi: Congress spokesperson Tom Vadakkan on Tuesday hit out at Narendra Modi and slammed the government for rushing into the matter to impose President’s rule in party-ruled Arunachal Pradesh, calling it a “murder of democracy and the constitution on Republic Day”.

He also blamed the government for disrespecting the Supreme Court by bypassing it when the court was hearing the matter.


The constitution and democracy have been murdered on this Republic Day. It is an effort by the government to nail federalism. The matter is sub judice and yet the speed with which the cabinet moved and the final decision has been taken is a clear indication that they have no respect for the highest court of the land,

The party had moved the Supreme Court on Monday to challenge union cabinet’s recommendation to impose President’s rule in Arunachal.

They could have waited for the matter to be settled by the judiciary yet they moved with express speed to ensure President’s rule in a sensitive state. There is no indication of past or present breakdown of law and order. These are signals of imagination manufactured to fine-tune and legitimise horse-trading that was done by a certain sitting minister.

The matter should have been handled under the spirit of the SR Bommai case yet the argument being given that the house was not summoned for six months, but the ground reality is the matter was sub judice in the high court of the state and therefore that statutory requirement was met with,” said Vadakkan, adding the attempt to remove the speaker by the deputy speaker smacks of a larger conspiracy.

“We expect justice from the highest court of the land, therefore, we would not like to add any comment on a sub judice matter,” he added.

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
