Itanagar, Apr 20 (UNI) BJP Northeast organisational in-charge V Satish today demanded explanation from Arunachal Governor S K Singh for his 'derogatory' remarks to a party delegation on April 7.
The BJP delegation had appealed to the Governor to forward an application to the Election Commission about disqualification of 24 legislators holding office of profit in the state.
He said the Governor, during the meeting with the BJP delegates, had asked one of the party leaders, from the Christian community, how he joined the party, which exposed his anti-BJP stance.
Addressing mediapersons here today, Mr Satish said the statement of the Governor was 'unfortunate and highly discriminatory' and described him as an 'advocate' of the ruling Congress government.
Mr Satish claimed that his party would be able to form the next government in the state.
'' The national leadership is aware of the party's future prospects in the state and our senior leaders are conducting extensive tour in the state,'' he said adding the party leaders were leaving no stone unturned to expose the misdeeds of the ruling government and the party would start membership drive from June next.
BJP state president Bosiram Siram, while highlighting the failure of the state government, alleged that despite repeated assurances from the government for devolution of power to Panchayat bodies, no such move was initiated so far.
