Arunachal Pradesh unit of NCP merges with PPA
Itanagar: The Arunachal Pradesh unit of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) has merged with the People`s Party of Arunachal (PPA), the only regional party in the state.
Commenting on the merger, former state unit president of NCP Kahfa Bengia said the dissolution of the NCP state unit was done as per the meeting held by its executive members.
"The NCP was dissolved due to gross negligence of the party?s central high command towards the state unit ever since it was formed in Arunachal Pradesh. This decision was taken by the executive body of the party?s state unit here on October 17 last," Bengia said.
"We have full faith in PPA as it is the oldest regional party in the state and we will work for the greater interest of the tribal people," he added.
Earlier this year, Trinamool Congress with its lone MLA Laeta Umbrey had also merged with the PPA.
PPA Working Committee chairman Kamen Ringu today said that the PPA would work for the greater interest of people of the state.
He also appointed Nikh Kamin and Kahfa Bengia as president and working president respectively of the PPA.
