Takam Pario elected New Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh

People's Party of Arunachal leader Takam Pario has been elected as the new Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh on December 30, 2016.

The 41 year old Takam Pario was elected from the Palin Assembly seat in the 2014 elections. He belongs to Sangram (Dokio Langpo) village in Kurung Kumey district of Arunachal Pradesh.

Elected on a Congress ticket, Pario later deserted Congress along with 42 other MLAs, and joined the People's Party of Arunachal (PPA). The PPA is part of the NDA-led North East Democratic Alliance.

In the outgoing Pema Khandu government, Pario had been the PHED (Public Health Engineering Department) minister. Pario held the same portfolio when Nabam Tuki was the chief minister.
