Arunachal Pradesh Lok Sabha Elections and Past Results

Arunachal Pradesh has two Lok sabha constituencies: Arunachal East and Arunachal West. It was a Congress stronghold till a split across the party in 2003. BJP easily won both the seats in 2004 Lok Sabha Polls and that is when they got a foothold in the state politics. 2009 went back to Congress and 2014 saw Arunachal East picking Congress while the west went with BJP.

However, after 2014 elections a lot has happened in the state. In 2016, Congress split completely with a sizeable cunk joining PPA. The state Assembly Govt was suspended and after Supreme Court intervened, Govt was restored in the state but soon the Congress MLA’s left PPA and joined BJP, which was able to form the Govt.
