BJP registered a solid performance in Arunachal West constituency in the Lok Sabha 2014 election. Kiren Rijiju had defeated Congress' Takam Sanjoy by a margin of 41,738 votes. The voter turnout figure for Arunachal West constituency that year was 75.60 per cent across 1259 polling stations while the overall voter turnout figure for the state was 72 per cent.
