|Aboh’s widow should be elected unopposed: Arunachal MLAs|
ITANAGAR, June 5 - Cutting across party lines, members of the Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly on Tuesday said Chakat Aboh, wife of MLA Tirong Aboh who was killed by militants last month, should get elected unopposed from his Khonsa West seat.
Suspected NSCN militants on May 21 had gunned down the sitting MLA and NPP Assembly poll candidate Tirong Aboh and 10 others, including his son and security personnel, in Tirap district.
Responding to the proposal of the members during the obituary reference in respect to Aboh in the House, Chief Minister Pema Khandu said he would convene an all-party meeting soon to work out the proposal to get Chakat Aboh elected without any contest in the by-poll to the seat.
“Our efforts will be to ensure that she (Chakat) wins the by-poll unopposed as all the political parties have expressed their willingness to get her elected to the Assembly as a tribute to Tirong Aboh, a youth leader with full of potential,” the Chief Minister said. – PTI
