New Delhi, July 13: The CPI-M on Wednesday hailed the Supreme Court ruling restoring the Congress government in Arunachal Pradesh and urged the Narendra Modi government to "stop its growing authoritarian tendency of invoking Central rule in states" ruled by non-BJP parties.
A five-member Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court overturned the change of government in Arunachal "through Central intervention and upheld the inviolable federal character of our Constitution", the CPI-M said.
"Following the Uttarakhand experience, this Supreme Court judgment poses an irrevocable question of political morality and accountability of this BJP-led Central government," the Communist Party of India-Marxist said.
"The CPI-M wants the Central government to heed this verdict and stop its
growing authoritarian tendency of invoking Central rule in states that have governments of opposition parties.
"The Central government must fix accountability for this unconstitutional decision," it added.
