ITANAGAR, March 27 - The BJP candidate from the Yachuli Assembly constituency, Taba Tedir, has been returned unopposed as the nomination of the other contestant from Janata Dal (United), Toko Yaram, was today rejected by the DEO-cum-Returning Officer of Lower Subansiri, said Kanki Darang, Additional Chief Electoral Officer of Arunachal Pradesh.
With this, the saffron party is �set� to win two Assembly seats in Arunachal Pradesh without any contest.
On Tuesday, Kento Jini of the BJP �returned unopposed� from the Aalo East seat as the nomination paper of his lone opponent, Minkir Lollen of the Congress, was rejected.
The outcome for the Yachuli seat was delayed by a day as there has been adjournment of hearing of objections which were disposed of today.
The Additional CEO said that the BJP candidates could be declared to have been duly elected unopposed immediately after the last hour for withdrawal of candidature.
Meanwhile, Darang said that as many as seven candidates across the State withdrew their candidature on Wednesday, a day after their applications for contesting the April 11 polls were found valid during scrutiny. The last date for withdrawal of candidature is on March 28.

They are Jonaki Kaye from the Nari-Koyu seat, Tsering Sonam from Kalaktang, Techi Nhagu from Itanagar, Tatung Ragyor from Mechuka, Takar Jamoh from Lekang, Kenrik Ete Moyong from Pasighat East and Eyum Badak Basar from the Basar constituency.
