Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu has expressed shock and grief over the sudden demise of Tadik Chije, a veteran politician and former Minister, who represented 33rd Mechuka Assembly Constituency for four terms since 1978.

In a message on Tuesday evening, Khandu said that the state has lost a seasoned politician and a first generation leader and expressed belief that he will remain immortal for his contributions in the evolution of Arunachal Pradesh and welfare of his people.

Born on 2nd October 1952 to Late Tame Chije and Late Yaying Chije of Singbu village under Monigong Circle of West Siang district, Late Chije did his initial schooling from Monigong and Mechuka and later acquired his Bachelor of Arts Degree from Jawaharlal Nehru College, Pasighat. He started his political innings in the year 1978 as Member of Provisional Legislative Assembly representing 33rd Mechuka Assembly Constituency. During his four term tenure as law maker, Late Chije served the State in various capacities.

Apart from serving as Deputy Speaker in the year 1978-79, he held the office of Pro-term Speaker twice in 1999 and 2004. Late Chije had also served as Minister BADP and Animal Husbandry & Veterinary in the year 2003-04. He also held several other important posts in his 35 years long political career before retiring from active politics in 2009.

“I know this would be the most trying times for you and your family members. I hope my humble words of consolation would ease the grief even if a little. In this moment of grief, me, my family, colleagues in the Government and people of Arunachal Pradesh extend our solidarity with you and share the pain inflicted on you by one of the greatest truths of life,” Khandu wrote in the condolence message addressed to Late Chije’s eldest son.
