PPA celebrates foundation day

NAHARLAGUN, Apr 10: The People’s Party of Arunachal Pradesh (PPA) celebrated its 41st foundation day in a befitting manner here on Tuesday.
Speaking on the occasion, party chairman Kamen Ringu said the ruling BJP government at Centre has not performed better than the Congress-led UPA government.
He said the PPA will maintain equidistance from both the BJP and the Congress, and appealed to the youths to embrace the regional party for all-round development of the state.
“If necessary, we will contest all the 60 seats,” he asserted.
