NEW DELHI, Dec 16 : Accusing the Modi government of trying to "oust" the Congress regime in Arunachal Pradesh with a "pre-planned design", Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and other party leaders today met President Pranab Mukherjee and lodged a strong protest against state Governor Jyoti Prashad Rajkhowa.
"It is clear that the BJP top leadership in connivance with some dissident Congress MLAs planned to destabilize the democratically-elected Congress Government in Arunachal Pradesh.
"This is obviously a pre-planned design involving the highest functionaries of the Central Government in this unprincipled enterprise," the Congress chief told reporters at Rashtrapati Bhavan after meeting the President. The Congress delegation handed over a memorandum to Mukherjee, urging him to preserve the sanctity of the Constitution, the democratic traditions of the country and polity and the rule of law. ?PTI
