Arunachal Pradesh Assembly Election Results in 1984


Elections to the third Legislative Assembly in the state of Arunachal Pradesh were held in December 1984. Candidates from various political parties were in fray, contesting in a total of 30 Assembly constituencies. The Indian National Congress won with a thumping majority, owing to the infrastructural development and other social indices brought about by Gegong Apang and his rule.
The Congress formed the government once again, while the People’s Party of Arunachal, in comparison could not compete with the Apang-led Congress government. Former Chief of Intelligence Bureau Thanjavelu Rajeswar continued in the prestigious post of the Lieutenant Governor of Arunachal Pradesh for the first few months of this tenure, before he was replaced by Shiva Swarup, who was the last Lieutenant Governor in the state. With Arunachal Pradesh attaining full statehood in February 1987, the post of the Governor became effective. The first Governor of Arunachal Pradesh was Bhisma Narain Singh, from February 1987 till March 1987. He was replaced by R. D., Pradhan who continued till the end of the term. T. L. Rajkumar was the Speaker of the Arunachal Pradesh Vidhan Sabha, while Chera Talo was the Deputy Speaker. Gegong Apang of the Congress was re-elected in power as the Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh during the whole of this period.

One of the most prominent achievements of the Apang-led Congress regime during this time was the solution of its border issues with China. It was largely the able guidance of Governor Pradhan, whose previous experience in the Defence Ministry helped to be in accord with the northeast states. Some of the most important legislations passed in the Arunachal Pradesh Assembly during this period were:
  • Arunachal Pradesh Salaries and Allowance of Ministers, Act
  • Arunachal Pradesh Environment Protection Act, 1986
