Itanagar, December 25
The JD (United) received a major jolt in Arunachal Pradesh, with six of its seven MLAs shifting allegiance to the ruling BJP, a bulletin issued by the state Legislative Assembly said.
The lone MLA from the People’s Party of Arunachal, Kardo Nyigyor, has also joined the saffron party. The development comes a day ahead of the announcement of the panchayat and municipal poll results. The JD(U) MLAs who switched sides are Talem Taboh (Rumgong constituency), Hayeng Mangfi (Chayang Tajo), Jikke Tako (Tali), Dorjee Wangdi Kharma (Kalaktang), Dongru Siongju (Bomdila) and Kanggong Taku (Mariyang-Geku), the bulletin said. — PTI
