The apex court directed the restoration of the ousted Chief Minister Nabam Tuki as it quashed the decision of Governor Jyoti Prasad Rajkhowa preponing the assembly session in December 2015.
"The Supreme Court has today given a historic verdict," he said.
He said this will help protect "healthy democracy" in the country. "This is a historic and remarkable judgment."
The court nullified the decision of Governor Rajkhowa on December 9 to advance the assembly session. "According to the judgment, our government has been restored," Tuki added. "I'll go to the state and talk to all the 47 Congress MLAs. We will call a meeting," he said.
