BJP Retains Power in Arunachal Pradesh, SKM Wins Second Term in Sikkim

The BJP secured another term in Arunachal Pradesh, while the Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM) clinched a second consecutive term in Sikkim following the assembly elections held on April 19.

In Arunachal Pradesh, the BJP won 46 out of 60 assembly seats, marking its third consecutive victory in the state. According to the Election Commission, results were declared on Sunday for 50 of the 60 seats, as the BJP had already won ten seats unopposed prior to the official count. Chief Minister Pema Khandu was among the ten candidates who were elected unopposed.

The National People’s Party (NPP) secured five seats, the People’s Party of Arunachal won two seats, and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) gained three seats. The Congress party managed to win only one seat, while independent candidates triumphed in three constituencies.

In Sikkim, the SKM, led by Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang, won 31 out of the 32 assembly seats. The Sikkim Democratic Front (SDF) managed to secure just one seat, further solidifying the SKM’s dominance in the state’s political landscape.

The victories in both states highlight the continued influence and popularity of the BJP in Arunachal Pradesh and the SKM in Sikkim, setting the stage for their respective governance in the coming term.
