Itanagar 

The National General Secretary of BJP, Mr. Ram Madhav, on Saturday said that Arunachal Pradesh now had a BJP government with Chief Minister Peme Khandu merging the People’s Party of Arunachal (PPA) with the BJP.

“Arunachal has a BJP govt now. CM Pema Khandu, with 33 MLAs merges PPA in BJP. BJP govt has 45 BJP+2 ind MLAs support in a 60-member Assembly,” he tweeted.

The main constituent of the Northeast Democratic Alliance (NEDA) government – the Peoples’ Party of Arunachal (PPA) ousted seven party MLAs including Chief Minister Pema Khandu and his deputy Chowna Mein, under ‘temporary suspension’ from Thursday night for breaking party ‘discipline’.

Earlier, Pema Khandu claimed that the members of the party were suspended without issuing a show-cause notice to the MLAs. He added that it was due to this political turmoil, there would not be any development in the state of Arunachal Pradesh.
