Arunachal assembly speaker Pasang Sona administers the oath to newly elected Khonsa West MLA Chakat Aboh.

Newly elected MLA Chakat Aboh on Monday took oath as a member of Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly.

Assembly Speaker Passang Dorjee Sona administered the oath of office to Aboh at Dorjee Khandu Auditorium in the Assembly Secretariat in Itanagar.

Aboh, wife of slain NPP leader Tirong Aboh, won the recently held Assembly bypolls from Khonsa (West) constituency as an independent candidate.

She defeated her nearest rival Azet Homtok by a margin of 1887 votes.

The bye-election to the Khonsa West constituency was necessitated after sitting MLA Tirong Aboh was killed by NSCN rebels in Tirap district on May 21 this year.
