ITANAGAR- NOV, 7- The political crisis over the leadership issue in the State gets further deepened with a group of 21 Congress legislators including six former ministers and the principal advisor to the chief minister led by senior leader Kalikho Pul revolted against Chief Minister Nabam Tuki. The group of legislators informed to the media that they would not attend the Congress Legislative Party (CLP) meeting convened by Mr Tuki on November 8 claiming any meeting called under his leadership does not carry any substance.
It was reported that a CLP meeting will be held at 4:30 hrs on Sunday at Rajiv Gandhi Bhavan here and accordingly the party leadership had asked all CLP leaders to attend the meeting without fail.
There are already differences of opinion with regards to autocratic way of functioning and disrespect for inner democracy of the party with the present CLP leader Nabam Tuki.
We clearly denounce his legitimacy as the leader of Congress Legislature Party of Arunachal Pradesh. Under this circumstances any meeting called under his leadership do not carry any substance and holds no water.
He has lost all the moral credibility to lead the party in the house, said the dissident MLAs in a joint signed statement here, adding that they have unanimously decided not to attend the CLP meeting called under the leadership of Nabum Tuki.
In the meantime, the delicate political situation in the State has received yet another blow with the senior most MLA from Pakke-Kessang assembly constituency, Kameng Dolo, resigning fromthe twin posts of Principal Advisor to CM and Chairman of SCITeG (State Council for IT and e-Governance).Of late, there appears to be a trust deficit between us besides ideological difference for which reasons are best known to you, which ultimately resulted into present state of affairs of instability in our state under your leadership, Mrt Dolo wrote in his resignation letter to the Chief Minister.
