    ITANAGAR,  Mar 18:   The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday suffered a major setback after its General Secretary Arunachal Pradesh, Jarpum Gamlin resigned from the post  and primary membership of the party after his name did not find mention in the list of 54 candidates released by the BJP Parliamentary Board on March 17.
    Widely seen as a dynamic leader, Gamlin had been visiting interior parts of the state for months and was a contender for party ticket from 27-Liromoba Assembly Constituency.
    ‘However as the party has announced the ticket which is not in my  favour, I am in a precarious position torn between the party and my supporters. After much thought, I have decided that I cannot let down the expectations of my supporters who have reposed faith in me. I have decided, therefore, to resign from the primary membership and all other responsibilities of the Bharatiya Janata Party assigned from Itanagar, Guwahati and New Delhi,'said Gamlin in his resignation letter addressed to State BJP President, Tapir Gao.
