Firm on its resolution of making congress free India, BJP thinktank has announced the support for Pema Khandu’s PPA government in Arunachal Pradesh.
The politics of Arunachal Pradesh has seen a lot of action lately. Started with the presidential rule in the state, the congress led government came back strongly just to see its 42 sitting MLAs leaving the party to join Kalikho Pul’s regional party, PPA. The chief minister, Pema Khandu was also in the list of MLAs who switched group.
BJP’s state chief in Arunachal Pradesh, Tapir Gao announced the move and added that Tamiyo Taga, another BJP leader from the state will be sworn as a minister in the PPA government.
Arunachal Pradesh assembly has a 60 member house. Out of which, Congress had support of 47 MLAs, however, 43 of them switched party and took the majority along to PPA’s camp. After the BJP’s announcement of joining the government, the ruling party is left with visibly no opposition in the assembly and congress’s future in the state seems very uncertain and seems like BJP is gradually succeeding in their initiative of Congress free India.
With the latest development, BJP is now in the decision making role in 14 states including being in direct power or in coalition.
