It came as a big shock for the congress party, when Arunchal Pradesh’s CM Pema Khandu along other 43 MLAs left the Congress Party and joined the People’s Party of Arunchal Pradesh, making the party face the prospect of losing its government.
According to reports, Mr. Khandu along with 43 Congress MLAs , joined PPA and virtually converted it into a PPA government.
The only MLA who has stayed with the Congress is Nabam Tuki , who was replaced as the Chief Minister, when the Congress , in an effort to control the rebellion in its ranks replaced him with Mr. Khandu in July.
Notably, a Congress MLA, committed suicide last month. He was forced resigned in July following a Supreme Court Judgment.
