New Delhi: The Congress has once again attacked the BJP over the imposition of President's Rule in Arunachal pradesh.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said, “Modi government has murdered democracy on Republic Day. Truth is that during Modi ji’s government, Raj Bhawans have become den of 'Pracharaks' of RSS & that is what happened in Arunachal Pradesh.”

Surjewala's comments came on a day when the Supreme Court is all set to hear Congress' plea against President's Rule in Arunachal Pradesh.

Former Arunachal chief minister Nabam Tuki said, “People are upset over President's rule imposed in Arunachal Pradesh, hope SC would ensure justice.”

President Pranab Mukherjee has cleared the proposal by the Centre yesterday. A Home Ministry statement said, “President of India has signed a proclamation under article 356(1) of the Constitution, imposing President's Rule in relation to the state of Arunachal Pradesh and keeping the Legislative Assembly of the state in suspended animation with effect from January 26."
