Non stop protest against Rajkhowa, Kalikho

Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister is busy with managing the current crisis. Caught in a barrage of criticism, Governor JP Rajkhowa is desperately weighing legal option. Dissident leader Kalikho Pul is waiting for the Gauhati High Court's judgment on January 4. 

But the power hub in the north eastern state is still on the boil with non stop protest against Rajkhowa and Pul. All Nyishi Students Union on Tuesday took out a huge protest in the capital city against the Governor and the former finance minister who has been leading the dissidence to dislodge Nabam Tuki as Chief Minister.

Taking banners and festoons in their hands more than 6,000 people came out to the street demanding withdrawal of Rajkhowa and arrest of Kalikho Pul. "This governor must go from Arunachal Pradesh. Rajkhowa is a BJP agent. He has no right to remain in the Raj Bhawan," said a protestor.

Another protestor told Assam Times that the dissident Congress MLAs have been disrupting the government functionings where the people have been bearing the brunt. "Kalikho must be arrested for releasing an incriminating video clip which has gone viral in the social media," said the protestor.
