Arunachal CM Pema Khandu Pays Heartfelt Tribute to Shinzo Abe


Arunachal Pradesh Chief minister Pema Khandu on Saturday paid a heartfelt tribute to Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe who was shot on Friday during an election campaign in the Western Japanese city of Nara.

In a Buddhist tradition, the Monks at the GRL Monastery in Bomdila prayed for the swift rebirth of Abe.

It is to be mentioned that Abe was elected to the House of Representatives in the 1993 election. 

He was appointed Chief Cabinet Secretary by Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi in September 2005, before replacing him as prime minister and LDP president in September 2006. 

He was subsequently confirmed as prime minister by a special session of the National Diet, becoming Japan’s youngest post-war prime minister, and the first to have been born after World War II. 

Abe resigned as prime minister just after one year in office due to medical complications from ulcerative colitis, shortly after his party lost that year’s House of Councillors election. 

He was replaced by Yasuo Fukuda, who became the first in a series of five prime ministers who each failed to retain office for more than sixteen months.
