President's rule lifted in Arunachal Pradesh, paves way for new govt

New Delhi: President's Rule has been lifted from Arunachal Pradesh, a Rashtrapati Bhavan official said on Friday.

The step comes after the Supreme Court on Thursday cleared the decks for the revocation of central rule in the northeastern border state as it vacated its own order of status quo passed on Wednesday.

The central government had on Wednesday recommended lifting President's Rule from the state. The decision was however held back in the wake of the status quo order passed by the apex court.
