Congress known for misusing constitutional machineries: Naqvi

New Delhi: Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Monday accused the Congress of having a history of misusing constitutional machineries.

“The Supreme Court is looking into the matter (President’s rule in Arunachal Pradesh) and its judgement will be supreme and will be valid for everyone. As far as the Congress Party is concerned, the party is known for misusing the constitutional machineries. If a party which has a history of misusing the Constitution in a cruel and shameless way gives us sermons about the Constitution, it is laughable,” he said.

Naqvi also said that the BJP-led Government understood its responsibility in resolving the Constitutional crisis in Arunachal Pradesh.

“We know that we (Central Government) are committed towards the Constitution. We understand that it is our duty to solve any constitutional crisis that arises in any state. We are fulfilling this responsibility,” he added.

The Supreme Court will hear the petition filed by Congress Party challenging the imposition of President’s rule in Arunachal Pradesh today. (ANI)
