Arunachal Pradesh Governor J.P. Rajkhowa had submitted his reply to the apex court yesterday in which he had claimed that former chief minister Nabam Tuki and his ministers had made it impossible for him to discharge his duties.

According to reports, Rajkhowa accused Tuki of communal politics by provoking local tribesmen and funding public protests to seek his ouster. He also alleged that he was abused, threatened and nearly assaulted by some ministers.

Rajkhjowa also claimed that he and his family feared for their lives because of the actions of Tuki and his supporters.

Meanwhile, Tuki has filed a fresh petition in the Supreme Court challenging the promulgation.

President Pranab Mukherjee on Tuesday had given his assent to Union Cabinet’s decision to impose the President’s Rule in Arunachal Pradesh.

The six month mandatory period to have an Assembly session in the state had lapsed on 21st of this month.

on the other hand the BJP in Arunachal Pradesh on Friday alleged that many of its MLAs have been receiving threat calls from supporters of Congress. “Security threats are looming large with fear psychosis prevailing in the state capital. Our MLAs and leaders have been threatened,” BJP state unit president Tai Tagak told reporters at Arunachal Press Club (APC) in Itanagar.
