"The Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh Dorjee Khandu and four others are dead," Union Minister for Development of North-eastern Region BK Handique told a press conference in Itanagar on Wednesday evening. It was on Wednesday morning that the wreckage of Khandu's chopper was spotted from a hilltop near Jung falls in Tawang district. While villagers in the area communicated to a control room in Itanagar that three of the five bodies were charred beyond recognition, a Cheetah helicopter that flew over the wreckage site also confirmed spotting the crashed chopper and some bodies. Local villagers could identify the bodies of Khandu and Yeshi Lhamu, the sister of Tawang MLA Tsewang Dhondup. Later, a government official and a relative of Khandu confirmed that one of the bodies was indeed Khandu's. A team from the nearest Army post in Kyela has left for the wreckage site to retrieve the bodies. However, given that the area is still receiving snowfall, the adviser to the late Chief Minister, Kiran Rijiju, indicated that it may not be possible to bring back the bodies until May 5,2011. The indications of Khandu's death had come earlier on May 4,2011 from Govt. of India’s UnionHome Minister P Chidambaram who told reporters that there was "sad and grim" news from the rescue teams searching for Khandu's missing chopper. "I am afraid the news is sad and grim," Chidambaram said in his second press briefing of the day. In the morning, he had announced that debris of a helicopter and three bodies had been spotted from a hilltop near Jung Falls in the Tawang district. In addition to Mr Khandu, villagers were able to identify Yeshi Lhamu, the sister of Tawang MLA Tsewang Dhondup. went missing on its flight from Tawang to Itanagar, Arunachal Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu's body was found in Luguthang in Tawang district bordering China the otherday on Wednesday the 4th of May 2011. Dorjee Khandu, who led the Congress to a two-third majority in the assembly elections in Arunchal Pradesh, was elected the Congress Legislature Party to lead the State Govt. of Arunachal Pradesh as the Chief Minister.Khandu's election was announced by central observer V Narayanasamy after all the forty two MLAs, in a resolution, authorized Congress president Sonia Gandhi to take a decision on the leadership. October 24, 2009The central observers met individual legislators after they had attended that meeting and the choice to lead the State Govt. fell on him. He was a very popular leader known for being social-activist. He was an eloquent speaker. His passing away is not only a great loss to Arunachal Pradesh in particular but whole of our country as whole. His services will be remembered and cherished for long. Let us mourn his passing away and pray to God to grant heavenly abode to his departed soul and give solace to the members of diseased family!
