Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu and PCC chief Nabam Tuki today denied a media report of rift over CM's post within the ruling Congress.
"In the recent Lok Sabha elections and panchayat polls, we worked together and helped the party win hands down and
have been working like brothers to secure a big victory in the assembly polls due next month," the leaders told reporters in a joint press conference.
A recent newspaper report had claimed that the ruling Congress in Arunachal Pradesh was divided over the chief
ministers post, with incumbent Dorjee Khandu and PCC president Nabam Tuki reportedly trying to outdo each other.
The two leaders described the report as 'baseless'.
Tuki said the Congress, under the dynamic leadership of Khandu, had won elections after elections in the state.
