Pema Khandu sworn-in as Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister

Arunachal Pradesh’s newly appointed Congress Chief Pema Khandu today took oath as chief minister. Governor Tathagata Roy administered the oath at the Raj Bhavan at noon.


Khandu had replaced Nabam Tuki as CLP chief on Friday to gain numbers to prove majority in the state assembly.

However, Governor on Saturday cancelled the floor test after Khandu reached Raj Bhavan along with 44 supporting MLAs to stake claim to form new government.

Earlier, Nabam Tuki submitted his resignation as CLP leader. Governor had rejected Tuki’s plea to defer the floor test on Friday.
