Chief Minister Nabam Tuki has expressed shock and grief over the sudden demise of former Speaker and Minister Setong Sena, who expired Sunday night at a hospital at Dibrugarh, where he was undergoing treatment.
Tuki along with host of ministers, parliamentary secretaries, MLAs and public leaders paid their last respects to the departed leader at Jairampur this morning before the mortal remains were laid to rest.
In a condolence message to the bereaved family members Tuki hailed late Setong Sena as a leader of the masses who worked tirelessly for upliftment of Changlang District, the Tangsa community in particular and the state of Arunachal Pradesh in general.
"His developmental initiatives for the state in the field of Agriculture and Horticulture and pitching for opening of border trades shall have lasting impression in the minds of every Arunachalee. The tragedy has taken away one of the true sons of the soil," he said.
Tuki asserted that Late Sena will be remembered forever by the people for his contributions as a Speaker, Minister and a seasoned Legislator.
"At 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 and your family by this irreparable loss," Tuki added and prayed the Almighty to bestow the bereaved family members with strength to bear the irreparable loss.
