New Delhi: Congress President Sonia Gandhi with other senior leaders from party on Wednesday met President Pranab Mukherjee over feud between Arunachal CM, Governor and developments in the state Assembly.
"We met the President to express our anguish and concern over the manner in which Congress government in Arunachal Pradesh is sought to be 'destabilised'," Sonia Gandhi said.
"We have sought the President's protection to ensure sanctity of Constitution," Sonia Gandhi added.
Earlier, the members of the Congress disrupted Rajya Sabha proceedings raising questions over Arunachal Pradesh Governor Jyoti Prashad Rajkhowa's role and sought his dismissal alleging that his actions amounted to murder of democracy and Constitution.
Raising the issue, Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad suggested that the Governor was interfering with the activities of the state government and the Legislature over summoning of Winter Session of the assembly and deciding its agenda without the state government requesting for it.
"Governor of Arunachal Pradesh is behaving like a dictator. This is the most undemocratic thing that had not happened even during the British period," Azad said.
Rajkhowa has summoned the Winter Session of the 6th Legislative Assembly from today till December 18, modifying the November 3 order summoning the assembly from January 14 to 18 next year.
