Sikkim’s CM Wishes Arunachal Pradesh CM Pema Khandu on His Birthday.

Prem Singh Tamang (Golay), the Chief Minister of Sikkim, extended heartfelt birthday wishes to Pema Khandu, the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh. In his message, CM Golay conveyed his hopes for Khandu’s continued dedicated service to the people and the state. He prayed for Khandu’s strength, happiness, good health, and long life. Pema Khandu, born on August 21, 1979, is a prominent Indian politician and the Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh.

A Legacy of Service

Pema Khandu, the son of former Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh, Dorjee Khandu, has carved his own path in the realm of politics. Since taking on the role of Chief Minister in July 2016, he has demonstrated his commitment to public service. Notably, his government transitioned party affiliations twice – from Indian National Congress to the Peoples Party of Arunachal in September 2016, and subsequently to the Bharatiya Janata Party in December 2016.

Early Life and Education

Pema Khandu’s upbringing was steeped in politics, being the eldest son of former Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu. Tragically, his father lost his life in a helicopter accident during a constituency visit. Pema Khandu pursued his education at Hindu College (Delhi University) and graduated from there. His adherence to Buddhism shapes his religious identity.

Political Trajectory

Pema Khandu’s political journey began as he assumed positions within the Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee. Over time, he garnered significant experience and was elected as the leader of the Congress Legislature Party, eventually becoming the Chief Minister at the age of 36, amidst a period of political turmoil.

Switches and Alliances

Khandu’s political journey has seen shifts in party allegiances. Notably, 43 MLAs under his leadership defected from the Indian National Congress to the Peoples Party of Arunachal, aligning with the Bharatiya Janata Party.
