Shatrughan takes a dig at PM "advisors" on Arunachal Pradesh President's Rule

New Delhi: Disgruntled BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha today criticised the Centre's decision to impose
President's Rule in Arunachal Pradesh, taking potshots at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "great advisors" wondering what answers they will have if the Supreme Court ruled against it.

Sinha, who has been at variance with the party leadership over a host of issues, questioned the government's "hurry and worry" when the matter was being heard by the apex court.

"I have tremendous faith in our dashing, dynamic action hero PM. But wonder who the 'great' advisors are who advised President's Rule in Arunachal (rpt) Arunachal Pradesh. That too when the matter is sub judice, in the Supreme Court, under a 5 judge constitutional bench. Wonder what was the hurry and worry," he said in a series of tweets, a day after the Centre justified its decision in the Supreme Court.

"God forbid, if the decision does not go in our favor, wonder what explanation and answer we will have for our
respected PM," Sinha tweeted.

The Centre had on day submitted an affidavit in the Supreme Court justifying imposition of President's Rule in
Arunachal, saying there was "complete breakdown" of governance and law and order in the state where the Governor and his family apprehended "grave danger to their lives" every day.

President Pranab Mukherjee had earlier this week given assent to Union Cabinet's decision to impose central rule in
Arunachal Pradesh.
