Kanubari Assembly by-poll: Arunachal CM urges voters to ensure victory of PPA candidate

Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Kalikho Pul has appealed to people to ensure victory of PPA candidate for Kanubari Assembly by-poll.

Addressing an election rally on Monday at Kanubari for PPA candidate Gabriel Denwang Wangsu, who is locking horns with Jyae Wangsu of the Congress, Pul said his party always stood for development.

The Chief Minister, however, lashed out at the previous Congress government accusing it of failing to deliver
on all fronts – from failing on timely release of salaries and wages, students' stipend and payment to marginal contractors.

Further slamming the previous government for "unscrupulously" disqualifying Gabriel Denwang Wangsu and Khonsa East MLA Wanglam Sawin, Pul said the only way people of Kanubari could pay back for the injustice was to vote Wangsu to victory again.

Appreciating the support of several political heavy weights in the constituency in joining hands with the PPA candidate, the Chief Minister assured that the party was always willing to accommodate the interests of all sections, of people from different political backgrounds for overall development of the constituency.

He thanked Wangrang Wangjen, an independent contestant who later withdrew his nomination for his faith in the ruling party.

The 16 May by-election to the constituency was necessitated after Gabriel resigned.
