Dharamshala: The Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile has expressed its deep condolence over the sad demise of Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu, who passed away in a tragic helicopter crash.

The Parliament remains highly appreciative of his leadership and concern," Speaker Penpa Tsering said in the message.

"The Tibetan Parliament in Exile expresses its deep condolence to the people of Arunachal Pradesh. We wish to convey our condolence to all the bereaved family members of the late chief minister," the message noted.
