Arunachal Pradesh

The Indian general election, 2004 in Arunachal Pradesh, occurred for 2 seats in the state. Party politics in Arunachal had been rather unstable during the last years. In 2003 a major chunk of former Congressmen joined BJP, and formed a government in the state. BJP was for the first time a strong force in the state, and contested both seats. Congress had an alliance with its splinter-group Arunachal Congress. Congress candidate and former Arunachal Congress leader Wangcha Rajkumar contested Arunchal East and AC candidate Kamen Ringu contested Arunachal West. Nationalist Trinamool Congress (evolved out of Sangma wing of NCP in the state, a member of NDA) had a candidate in Arunachal West, competing against BJP. BJP won both seats with comfortable margins.

Polling took place in the state overshadowed by a boycott call from All Arunachal Pradesh Students Union over the inclusion of Chakma and Hajong refugees in the voters lists.
