GUWAHATI: Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Wednesday alleged the BJP was trying to create a law and order situation in the state so that President’s Rule could be imposed. His allegation followed the BJP’s protest march to Dispur. BJP’s Mangaldoi MP, Ramen Deka, was among over a dozen people injured in police action during the protest, which was against alleged rampant corruption in the 15 years of Congress rule.

“The BJP is trying to create a law and order situation in the state so that President’s Rule could be imposed here,” Gogoi alleged at a press conference. “His government is solely responsible for today’s (Wednesday) incident. Why did it let loose policemen on people taking out a peaceful march?” asked Union Sports Minister and BJP Assam chief Sarbananda Sonowal. Also, Assam Speaker Pranab Kumar Gogoi asked the House Privileges Committee to examine a breach of privilege motion against BJP’s Himanta Biswa Sarma, moved by the state government.

Meanwhile, in Arunachal Pradesh, the Assembly secretariat received two impeachment notices against the Speaker and Deputy Speaker. It is examining all factors before placing it at the Business Accounts Committee meet for necessary decision, Speaker Nabam Rebia said.
