CM’s confidence fanciful: APCC

ITANAGAR, May 31: The Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) on Thursday mocked Chief Minister Pema Khandu’s assertion that the BJP would win all 60 seats in the coming assembly election in Arunachal Pradesh.
“The chief minister’s idea of making a clean sweep of all the seats in the 2019 general election is just a flight of fancy,” the APCC stated in a press release, adding that the present BJP government in the state is unlikely to even last for a full term.
Pema had on Wednesday asserted that the state BJP will not enter into any pre-poll alliance and is confident of winning all the 60 assembly seats in the state.
Meanwhile, the APCC launched a scathing attack on the BJP government at the Centre and in the state, saying the party’s “misrule and bad governance” had affected the development of the state.
The cut in fuel price by Re 1 after increasing it for more than a week at a trot is a great joke, it said.
The APCC also said the municipality and panchayat elections were postponed based on “weather forecastallegedly made by two deputy commissioners.”
The Pema Khandu-led government also came under sharp criticism from the Congress party for the alleged lack of coordination among its bureaucrats.

“The chief minister should step down, owning moral responsibility for not being able to conduct the panchayat and municipality elections, and for being unable to maintain the financial situation and law and order.
“While the law and order situation is worsening day by day, development has touched its lowest ebb in the state under the BJP rule,” the APCC said.
The Congress party even demanded immediate imposition of President’s Rule in the state because of the alleged failure
