The Congress government headed by Nabam Tuki will be restored in Arunachal Pradesh in the wake of the Supreme Court judgement quashing all decisions of the governor which had precipitated its fall in December last.

“The judgement has to be implemented and the Governor will take all necessary actions and steps,” attorney general Mukul Rohatgi told PTI after a high-level meeting at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s residence.

He said the action has to be taken by the governor as the central government has no role to play and also it was not a party in the matter.

Rohatgi said as of now no decision has been taken to file any review petition immediately on the Supreme Court verdict.

Earlier, the Prime Minister deliberated with senior ministers on the Supreme Court order on Arunachal Pradesh and explored the way forward, including a review petition to be filed possibly by Chief Minister Kalikho Pul.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh, finance minister Arun Jaitley, law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, Rohatgi and top government officials met at the home ministry and examined the apex court ruling and its implications, official sources said.

After the hour-long meeting, the ministers drove to 7 Race Course Road, the official residence of the Prime Minister, to discuss with him future course of action.

Sources said there is a possibility of filing a review petition in the Supreme Court, challenging the five judge bench order by Pul, whose government has been displaced.

However, the top functionaries are still debating whether the central government will file the petition or by someone from the Kalikho Pul government.
