Kalikho Pul (20 July, 1969 – 9 August, 2016) was an Indian politician and acting chief minister of the Northeast Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh for a brief period in 2016.

He was elected five times from the Hayuliang assembly constituency of the state representing the Indian National Congress.

With the support of a few elected members of the Congress and the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Kalikho Pul assumed chief ministership of Arunachal Pradesh.

However, the Supreme Court of India ruled against this appointment on several grounds. On 9 August, 2016, Kalikho Pul allegedly hanged himself at his official residence in Itanagar. Pul's supporters protested in Itanagar demanding an investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
