In a significant reshuffle, Arunachal Pradesh's new government under Chief Minister Pema Khandu has sidelined three ministers from the previous administration. Those left out include Honchun Ngandam, Alo Libang, and Nakap Nalo, who previously held key portfolios. The move, attributed to their perceived poor performance, marks a critical shift in the state's political landscape.

Chief Minister Khandu, along with Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein and ten others, took the oath on Thursday. The swearing-in ceremony was officiated by Governor Lt Gen (Retd.) K T Parnaik and saw the presence of notable political figures, including Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP president J P Nadda.

Among the new council of ministers are eight fresh faces and the inclusion of a woman minister after a gap of over 10 years. The reshuffle indicates a strategic realignment within the party as it adapts to evolving political dynamics and public expectations.
