Debabrata Saikia tweeted: "I welcome the judgement of Supreme Court on Arunachal Pradesh. Warning for BJP to respect peoples' verdict and not encourage undemocratic practices".

In a major setback to the BJP, the apex court today ordered restoration of the Congress government in Arunachal Pradesh by quashing all decisions of the Governor that had precipitated its fall in January, holding them "violative" of the Constitution.

Reacting to the judgement, Arunachal Chief Minister Khalikho Pul said he would file a review petition against the Supreme Court judgement after going through it in detail and consultation of experts. "Definitely I will file a review petition.
