Seven of the nine elected MLAs of the People’s Party of Arunachal (PPA) joined the NPP during July this year. The NPP is a partner of the ruling alliance led by BJP as both parties are presently in the North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA), which governs the state.

Emergence of NPP in the state is making the political equations difficult as the state has been governed by Congress and BJP for decades.
