NPP Legislature Party leader Mutchu Mithi told reporters on Wednesday.
The National People’s Party (NPP), which has won five seats in the recently concluded Assembly elections, has extended unconditional support to Pema Khandu-led BJP Government in the state.
“Arunachal Pradesh NPP has given unconditional support to Pema Khandu Government soon after the results were declared and this has been communicated to the Chief Minister through our national president Conrad K Sangma,” NPP Legislature Party leader Mutchu Mithi told reporters on Wednesday.
The NPP, being one of the constituents of the BJP-led North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA), also congratulated Khandu and his party on getting thumping majority in the polls.
To a query, Mithi, who was re-elected from the Roing seat on NPP ticket, said: “We have no aspiration of getting any ministerial berth. We are giving unconditional support, based on that, the welfare measures should be undertaken by the Government what it has promised.”
The NPP, meanwhile, demanded a National Investigation Agency (NIA) probe into the killing of party MLA from Khonsa West, Tirong Aboh, who was re-elected in recent polls and 10 others in an ambush allegedly by Naga militants in Tirap district on May 21 last.
The Roing MLA said, in this regard, NPP national president and Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma has met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and raised several issues, including the recent assassination of Tirong Aboh. “He (Rajnath) gave a very optimistic response…whatever measures are to be taken will be taken,” he said.
The Sangma-led NPP has won five assembly seats out of 60 in the recently concluded polls in the State.
Earlier to the press briefing, all the legislatures and party leaders of NPP have a meeting with its national president Conrad K Sangma at the guest House of Rajbhawan Helipad where several issued were discussed including the developmental matters and death of Late Tirong Aboh investigation issue.
