Anti-party activity slur on Pema Khandu’s kin Tsetan Chombey
Itanagar: A BJP party leader from Kalaktang in West Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh has accused Chief Minister Pema Khandu’s cousin brother and BJP executive member Tsetan Chombey of indulging in anti-party activities, in the run-up to the ensuing simultaneous polls to 57 Assembly and two Lok Sabha constituencies in the state.
In a complaint letter addressed to the State BJP president, a copy of which was made available to the press, Pema Rinchin, president of BJP Mandal Committee of Kalaktang Assembly Constituency alleged that Khandu’s younger brother Tsetan Chombey is allegedly giving financial and logistical assistance to the Janata Dal (United) candidate Dorjee Wangdi Kharma instead of helping the party’s official candidate and sitting MLA cum Speaker of the outgoing Assembly Tenzing Norbu Thongdok.
Thongdok is seeking re-election on a BJP ticket.
He further claimed that Chombey is organizing rallies and door to door campaigns to gamer support for the JD(U) candidate, in total violation of the BJP party ideology and principles. The BJP Mandal president, meanwhile, requested the sate BJP chief to tell the Chief Minister to address an election rally at Kalaktang “as a last resort” to gain public support for the BJP nominee and call back Chombey from his current election campaign in the interest of the party.
