There are a lot of problems there in Arunachal Pradesh)," Rajkhowa said at Tezpur in Assam."Why am I (being) blamed? What wrong have I done? Law and order is not under control in the state and jungle raj prevails there,".

"The ministers shouted and pointed fingers at me. The chief minister (Nabam Tuki) was there, the home minister was there. They did not misbehave with me but with the governor of the state. They also threatened me," the Arunachal Pradesh governor cited.

Rajkhowa said six state ministers were present at a dharna in front of Raj Bhavan on Thursday night. "The state home minister laid and supervised the dharna. They have also blocked all roads in the state capital Itanagar, not allowing movement of vehicles," Rajkhowa said.

Meanwhile, a Raj Bhavan statement issued late Thursday night said the governor was likely to appeal very shortly against Gawahati High Court's Thursday order to suspend the proceedings of the state assembly till February 1.

Justice Hrishikesh Roy passed the order while hearing a writ petition filed on behalf of Arunachal Pradesh Speaker Nabam Rebia, who alleged that Governor Rajkhowa summoned the winter session of the assembly without consulting Chief Minister Nabam Tuki and his council of ministers and that it was done at the behest of a certain political party.
