GUWAHATI: Breaking his silence, Arunachal Pradesh Governor J P Rajkhowa on Monday refuted charges of the Congress that he was close to the BJP.
“I was never a member of any political party — neither the Congress nor the BJP. Also, I have never visited the office of any political party. The allegation that Raj Bhavan had been turned into an office of the BJP is incorrect,” the bureaucrat-turned-governor told reporters in Itanagar.
“Charges alone won’t stand. Let’s prove them with evidence,” he said.
His comments came after former chief minister Nabam Tuki accused him of working for the BJP. “From the day he took over, the Governor started criticising my government, terming it one of the most corrupt in the country. Soon, he formed a group with leaders drawn from various political parties in an attempt to dislodge my popularly-elected government,” the former chief minister had alleged.
