After series of defeats in Assembly polls and a shock ouster from Arunachal Pradesh, Congress slowly learnt its lessons and switched CM to avert floor test and it appears to be a successful move for the time being. In the process, the party high command pacified rebels and by using its trump card diffused months of political crisis which threatened to end the party’s hold on the north eastern state. This is a big victory for the Congress for the earlier reversals.
