Meghalaya Progressive Alliance (MPA) government Wednesday decided to move a petition in the Supreme Court challenging the imposition of President’s rule in the state. “The cabinet has expressed displeasure over the Governor’s recommendation of President’s rule. Where was the need to recommend for the President rule when the MPA had already won the floor test ?,” asked Chief Minister Dr Donkupar Roy while talking to reporters soon after chairing an emergency Cabinet meeting. He accused Meghalaya Governor R S Mooshahary of acting on the advice of Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader D D Lapang to invoked article 356 in the state. “The Raj Bhavan has now turned into a Congress Bhavan. We will write to President Pratibha Patil, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Leader of the Opposition L K Advani expressing our protest over the recommendation of the governor and for misusing the governor’s office by the Congress,” the Chief Minister said. However, the Congress denied any role on the imposition of President’s Rule. “The Union cabinet has accepted the recommendation owing to the political situation. They (MPA) have ruled for 12-months and they have shown their true colours in the eye of the public,” Lapang added. Chief architect of the MPA and former Lok Sabha Speaker, Purno A Sangma however put the blame entirely on the Congress for invoking Article 356.
