A month after Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu and all the Congress MLAs barring Nabam Tuki joined the People’s Party of Arunachal (PPA), the Congress on Tuesday told the Election Commission that the party has not merged with the PPA.

A Congress delegation led by former CM Tuki told the EC that the PPA has claimed that it passed a resolution at a meeting on September 16 stating that the Indian National Congress in Arunachal Pradesh had merged with it. The delegation told the panel that the Congress had not taken any such decision.
