BJD MP enquires about fate of his motion on Arunachal Governor

New Delhi, Dec 22: BJD leader B Mahtab on Tuesday,Dec 22 raised the issue of Arunchal Pradesh governor's conduct and enquired about the fate of a 'substantive motion' he had moved in the Lok Sabha for a discussion on the issue.

Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju, an MP from the state, objected to it, saying the matter was in the court, even as Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv Pratap Rudy was seen asking him not to speak.


A substantive motion is a self-contained independent proposal submitted for the approval of the House and drafted in such a way as to be capable of expressing a decision of the House, like all resolutions.

Mahtab said the matter of Governor Jyoti Prasad Rajkhowa's action in the state was not in the court.

The recent developments saw rebel Congress MLAs joining hands with BJP in passing a no-confidence motion against Chief Minister Nabam Tuki, with the Gauhati High Court staying the proceedings.

Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said the matter was under her consideration and she will soon take a decision, as the BJD leader noted that time was short with the Session getting over tomorrow.
