New Delhi: The Supreme Court has agreed to hear Congress' plea challenging the President's rule in Arunachal Pradesh at 2 pm today.
In its petition, the Congress accused the Governor of working at the behest of the Centre to topple its government.
The Congress dubbed the President's rule in Arunachal Pradesh as 'murder of democracy' by the BJP-led Centre and accused it of misusing power.
However, the Centre slammed the opposition for challenging the President's decision saying that the government had done its job by saving the people of the state after the Congress Government failed to govern Arunachal Pradesh.
Despite the vehement opposition by the Congress, President Pranab Mukherjee yesterday gave his assent to imposition of central rule in Arunachal Pradesh.
