ITANAGAR, Oct 12: The Republican Party of India (A) headed by Union Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment Ramdas Bandu Athawale launched its state unit in Arunachal Pradesh on Friday.
The RPI is a political party founded by father of the Indian Constitution, BR Ambedkar on October 3, 1957. However, the party had suffered severe factionalism after Ambedkar’s death.
Addressing media persons, RPI (A) Arunachal Pradesh state unit president Mongol Yomso asserted that the RPI would strive to bring good governance in Arunachal Pradesh.
“There is no good governance in Arunachal Pradesh. The RPI will strive to bring good governance”, said the RPI (A) state unit president.
Yomso also announced that the ‘Ambedkarism’ ideology party would field candidates in most of the constituencies in the state legislative assembly seat in the ensuing assembly elections.
Outlining the roadmap of the party’s plan and ideology, Yomso assured that the RPI would bring a corrupt-free government in the state.
On queries raised by journalists regarding fielding candidates with a ‘clean image’ in the ensuing election, the state unit RPI president exhorted that they would launch a membership drive and will go to every nook and corner of Arunachal Pradesh to find out the best candidates to field during the assembly elections.
He further appealed to the people of Arunachal Pradesh to support and join the RPI in the state to bring in good governance.
