Arunachal CM Refutes NSCN-K Link, Files Defamation Suit
Arunachal Pradesh Chief minister Nabam Tuki on Sunday strongly refuted the allegation levelled by three MLAs from Tirap and Longding – Thangwang Wangham, Honchun Ngandam and Gabriel D Wangsu – that he used the NSCN (K) to coerce representatives from Tirap, Changlang and Longding to support his leadership.

Terming the allegation “baseless, unfounded, wild, and made out of utter frustration,” Tuki said it is intended to tarnish his political and social image. He said he has filed a defamation suit against the trio and legal notices have been served to them through his counsel for defaming him “with such cheap and unfounded allegation which on ground holds no water.”
