BJP wins Arunachal Pradesh
The BJP, which recently secured an astounding victory in the Indian General Election and obtained a golden opportunity to form a second consecutive government in the centre, has won a historic opportunity to retain its seat of power in the state with the support of a promising number of seats of 41 in the 60-member assembly.
The Congress, who was once a big player in the state, has miserably failed once again in the state as its total strength in the state assembly has been reduced to just four.
Notably, in the latest assembly election, even the Janata Dal (United) has secured seven seats in the state.
Other political parties which have made gains in the election are the National People’s Party and the People’s Party of Arunachal. When the NPP has scored five seats, the PPA has gained one seat.
Interestingly, around two independents have also won the assembly election in the state this time.
Arunachal CM Pema Khandu is the one who has led the BJP in the election. His charisma is the prime faction which has worked in the BJP’s favour this time.
Mr Khandu is a son of former Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu, who was a prominent Congress leader.
In Mr Khandu’d first term as the CM, the state has witnessed several political turmoil, from his exit from the Congress party and the entry to a regional party, to his surrender to the BJP.
